J. Herbin Smooth Frosted Glass Pens feature glass tips that are twisted in a light spiral to hold the maximum amount of ink. By dipping the tip into ink, glass pen can be used just like a regular pen. After rinsing under water, glass pens can be cleaned easily, which makes it ideal to test multiple ink colors quickly. Since the glass tip is hand blown, each tip writes slightly different than the other. The glass pen first writes with a little feedback, but after using for a longer period of time, the pen will gradually write smoother.
