Scribing Tools are an item that function both as a crafting component used in some Infusion recipes, but also are used in research, being used to create Research Notes and to actually study them in the Research Table. Both of these functions use ink, the amount of which present in the Scribing Tools being shown by their durability bar. They are not destroyed when they run out of ink, but rather must be refilled using an ink sac, which can be done by placing the Scribing Tools, so long as they are not at full durability, and an ink sac anywhere in any crafting surface. This will yield a fully filled set of Scribing Tools. Scribing Tools can be created at any crafting surface with a feather, ink sac, and either a Glass Phial or bottle, whichever is used does not affect the outcome.
