Pen saving ink!

This ink has solved some issues with a couple of pens that were destined for the junk pile. One was a Jinhao (ceramic something or other) that was such a hard starter I had given up on it after trying several other inks. The other was a Conklin and a hard starter as well. Once inked up with Eel inks, they write like a dream! I thought the ink would have some funky properties on paper, but it is well-behaved and fairly wet.

A Stand Out Beauty

A wonderful blue! I bought it to replace my Noodler's Liberty's Elysium, and it is an incredibly close color match. However, I find this one has a slightly lighter tone to it that is even more beautiful than Liberty's Elysium. A wonderful ink that is sure to stand out in beauty, without being obnoxious.

Top Quality Color, Slippery Flow

This ink is surprisingly good. It not only delivers a brilliant color that competes favorably with Pilot's best inks but seems to reduce drag and promote absorption. All my pens are flowing better than ever and I'm enjoying the experience of fountain pen writing like never before.

Great inks

Really good ink.

It is a bit more teal than what shows on the pictures but if you are a person that is sick of looking at Black ink all the time this is a really good buy.

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!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
