Pen safety 101

“To write is human, to receive a letter divine…”

Storz Lendroth

Over the last week or two, I have given a few fountain pens as gifts. This results in grateful thanks, looks of confusion, moments of frustration and ink stains over fingers, clothing and carpets. Perhaps I can choose safer options. WW1 saw one of the biggest spikes in the purchase and use of fountain pens. Everybody was writing letters back and forth from the trenches. For those at the frontline liquid inks were difficult to transport, protect and handle. Dry ink pellets were produced to use in a range of safety pens. Add a drop or two of water and away you go with your letters to love ones at home. #makingbetterchoices #letsmakelemonade
