  1. Hello Jane,

    I was at the workshop that you did in Dunany and enjoyed it thoroughly.
    So much so that I went out and bought myself a Noodler Ahab.
    The only waterproof ink that I could get was Higgins.
    What are your thoughts on Higgins and do you have any recommended maintenance for the pen?
    Thanks in advance for any tips and thanks again for a great workshop.

    1. Hello Peter,
      I remember you! You were renting out one of Angie’s cottages and you live in Beaconsfield? Well, a Noodler Ahab is a very comfortable pen and very nice — one of many favourites. I do not know Higgins ink and now you have peaked my interest -) I will look into them but for maintenance just make sure that you clean “flush” your pen at least once per month and you should be good. Hope to see you again -)
