Lamy Bottled Ink
The most widely used ink In the Middle Ages, the Ferro-gallic ink served well, when used with quills. The disadvantage of the ferruginous ink was that it aged and dried up in the bottle very quickly. This aging made the Ferro=gallic not suitable for fountain pens. The creation of synthetic water-soluble dyes permitted the development of water-soluble inks., Ferro-gallic ink became less and less popular. The fountain pens of today use color inks made with water-soluble colors.
The average useful life of a Lamy ink cartridge is 12 months, after which the ink starts to evaporate. As a result, the ink cartridge looks filled half with ink even when unused.
