Smart Ink Bottle / Ink bottle

Smart Ink Bottle
Smart Ink Bottle

Refilling the pen with ink is somehow troublesome for the user, because there might be ink left on the penholder and nib. It is easy to stick on finger, and need to be cleaned with tissue. At the same time, the remaining ink would dye and corrode penholder. The Smart Ink Bottle overcomes this problem well, by adding a component specially for refilling ink to the traditional ink bottle. The ink container can be taken out and installed on the refilling component directly, without leaving ink on the penholder and wasting tissue, which is convenient and practical.
