For beginners without experience, it’s difficult to select good fountain pens for writing or drawing. Even if you know the features of the best luxury stylograph, this is not enough to have the best writing experience. You'll charge your tool with a certain ink. That’s why, if you aim to achieve the best possible result, you must be aware of mistakes to avoid.

Different manufacturers offer various writing tools and products but they might not have bottled inks in their assortment. This is what makes Ancora different from other manufacturers - we offer everything an average user needs for the best impressions and the most classy experience at your disposal. All options meet the standards of the highest quality. You just should look at the characteristics, on which you can rely when selecting good liquids and for writing or drawing. To make this easier, we want to provide some recommendations and display the best options, available in our assortment.

What is the best waterproof ink for fountain pens? People prefer fountain pens due to the reason that these writing tools are the best for stylish writing. However, many beginners don’t even know that the style heavily depends on the ink, too. This is the reason your research on the best ink should be well-thought-out.
So what is the best water-soluble ink? Here are the major things to consider:
- A good ink must flow well through the barrel and nib to provide smooth writing. Bottled products in the Ancora store have a good consistency, neither thin nor thick. This makes users sure that their writing instruments won’t leak or the inks won’t dry. But to preserve the best qualities of inks, you should maintain them properly.
- Good ink should be waterproof if you want your writing to be stylish and permanent. Water-resistant bottled inks aren’t affected by liquids, meaning you won’t lose what you wrote. Don’t neglect this feature because it’s really vital if you want to preserve the initial look of your writing or drawing. If you choose zero water-resistant inks, the most insignificant impact of water can destroy your piece of art.
- Consider the composition of inks. There are products made of different elements. Some might help you achieve your writing goals, while others might make this worse. Consider the components when choosing bottled inks. For example, some products are shimmering. If you prefer a plain writing style, it’s better to choose not shimmer inks but dye-based ones.
- One of the most common recommendations is not to neglect the paper type. Not all bottled inks suit well all types of paper. Make sure that the texture of the paper will let the ink flow smoothly over it.

You've just read the basic recommendations on how you should choose bottled inks. Now, take a look at the specific options everyone can purchase in our Ancora online store.

Very beautiful, solid and can be posted and become a very large pen. The 18K M nib is with some good flex and nice flow of ink. The nib is not as smooth as Visconti and Montegrappa pens but provide more feedback to me, just like writing with 4B pencil. The pen can house a Bock 250 nib assembly without a problem. I shall return for more of the Ancora pens, stunning!
