I write lefthanded and backhanded, so quick-drying inks are essential for me. Chuck Swisher has a line of specially formulated quick-drying inks from Nathan Tardif. They dry virtually instantaneously, and I use them almost exclusively these days. I don't believe anyone else sells them. The trade-off is, they tend to feather a bit. I have trouble negotiating Swisher's website, and any links I save just take me to the home page. Go to http://tinyurl.com/n5gs2, click on Swisher Pens Exclusives, and scroll down to "Swisher Pens Bottled Fountain Pen Ink" (*not* the SwishMix inks). I've also had good luck with the new Noodler's Bullet-Proof Luxury Blue. Usual disclaimers blahblahblah.

I write alot in chart notes in the hospital and there is nothing worse than a "smear" on the official medical record. Thoughts?

That makes them viscous in my book. Also vicious.
