Iron Turquoise Wing

Wherein my Blue Wing Sung 3008 (IEF) is paired with KWZ IG Turquoise.

On my Blue Wing Sung 3008 (IEF) joined its comrades when it was filled with KWZ IG Turquoise. I refilled it once; the last refill was on . The pen was in use for 4 years and was emptied and cleaned on , saying good-bye to its fellows.

Thoughts Before Filling

I bought these Wing Sung pens precisely because they are cheap, so I won’t care what happens to them, thus they are my experimentation pens. I want to see what this iron gall turquoise ink does to a demonstrator, so here we go!

Thoughts After Cleaning the Pen

One thing I have learned about this pen, is that the nib needs a bit more fine tuning. It’s not as nice as my other one. One thing I learned about the ink is that it eventually becomes sticky in the pen and requires some priming or washing. The pen itself looks to be in good working order after a couple of years containing an iron gall ink. I doubt I shall do something like this again in the future though.
