This is easily the most water resistant iron gall ink I've tried so far. It's my new favorite and I expect I'll be sticking with it for a long time.

Best everyday ink!!

I needed a solid performing ink to use everyday at work that is waterproof, archival and readable on the cheapest of paper. This ink does all that and doesn't bleed through!! I am so pleased with this ink. It doesn't clog at all, easy to clean out of my pens and a very smooth writing ink. Those who think Noodler's is all that, you need to take a step back and check out this ink!!!

Works well with cheap paper no feathering and good dry times on absorbent paper. I've yet to have any issues with being an iron gall ink, cleans out of the pen super easy.

I'm coming up on one year in the fountain pen life, and have finally decided what I want in an ink. Three musts: 1) waterproof. doesn't wash off the page. 2) dries. by the end of the next line. 3) an EF nib writes and EF line. some inks put down a broader line -- F or M -- even from an EF. SALIX hits all three marks for me. I like the dark blue and even see some shading as a bonus. If Salix is too dark for you, try Noodler's Blue Black, which also hits all three marks, but is a couple of clicks lighter while keeping its distance from the bright and showy.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!
