Another Ink Victim

About once every other week I receive a pen from a customer stating the filling system will not fill.

And every time I take the pen apart, and the pen has an ink sac, I find it destroyed from the inside out. The quick slide show below show a damaged, turned to “goo” ink sac barely 4 months old.

My opinion is that one should use only factory inks for they, the factory’s, have a tacit responsibility that their inks will work well in fountain pens, new and old.
