Friends of the Fountain Pen: How do you cope with bottles of ink that are wide and shallow? Is a syringe the only option for making use of the remaining ink when the pen filler simply won't work?

@jeremycherfas I personally use a syringe. I did see someone get ink out of an almost empty bottle, by tipping the bottle. Another option would be to transfer the ink to a smaller container, such as a sampler bottle

@klandwehr I can’t tip the bottle and operate the mechanism, so I think is going have to be the syringe. A large Eppendorf tube would be ideal.

@jeremycherfas I use the syringe all the time, it works best for me
