Hi Eharriett,

I completely agree. I've always believed ink should come in amber or cobalt glass, but I don't think anyone sells it that way. Naturally, they want to show off the colors, but tinted glass would be better for the ink.

Thank you; it's a J3a Hudson specially designed by Henry Dreyfuss, (the Wahl Eversharp Skyline designer - the train came first in 1938); for the New York Central's 20th Century Limited.

Sean :)

Hi Noihvo,

:headsmack:

Quite right... and I have 4 R&K inks! They slipped my mind - and I haven't tried KWZ yet.

Yes, it is just a few cents - and well worth it, IMHO. IIRC, amber glass added 8 cents per bottle back when I was bottling my inks; for a large operation like Herbin, Quink, etc., the cost would be truly negligible.

For a time Parker sold Quink in opaque plastic bottles which are also great for traveling.

Hi Gary,

Hhhmmmmm... that is intriguing; do you have any recollection when they did that? :unsure:

My memory is using those bottles in the mid-70's with my Parker 45.
I found a couple bottles online(eBay?) with Super Quink Permanent Blue ink with Solv-X, instead of the blue black which was my favorite. Bottle says made in England, packaged in the US.

Very interesting, indeed. Thanks for the info, Gary. 👍 Tally-ho and pip-pip! I'll have to go on the hunt! :D

3:2 BB with Solv=x to Permanent Blue.  Hmph.  Still too blue.  Now, where is that pack of Parker Black cartridges?
