For some people it actually matters how much ink they get for their money, and I get that. But for me it doesn’t matter. Honestly, it doesn’t. And I guess for a lot of us fountain pen inks it doesn’t.
If I tried I bet I could, without spending too much money, order up enough ink from my wish list to last me an entire life time.
I’d love to see more companies making smaller ink bottles. It wouldn’t have to be that much cheaper either. If all the inks I have at the moment would have been sold in 20ml or 25ml bottles instead of 50ml I would almost certainly have ordered them instead.
For me that would just mean that I could buy different ink colors sooner.
