    Default Dip pen

    Please give me some help in finding a non-glass dip pen. Primary (only) purpose would be to try out different inks (Goulet Ink Drop) without having to "ink up" a pen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Since you are planning to test inks I would recommend that you also get a flexible nib for the dip pen. Like that you will be able to test for ink shading better. Any nibs recommended for Copperplate calligraphy should be fine and there are plenty around.

    Sterling advice above. The only thing I'd add is to steer clear of nibs with fancy eyelets (Hunt Imperial 101 or Leonardt Principal for instance) because they can be a bugger to clean.
