When you began using bottled ink, what was the first bottled ink that you ever bought and in what color?

 

My first bottled ink was Osmiroid ink in blue.

Hello Elysee,

 

Great question. Skrip blue-black with the ink-well bottle.

 

All the best,

 

Sean :)

I started using bottled ink at 6 something years old (1st grade)...I can't really remember exactly, but I think it was a bottle of Hero Blue (because it was cheap and widely available)...I remember spilling that one all over my desk, carpet and clothes :rolleyes: . My first quality bottled ink was Pelikan Black.

I think Montblanc Blue-Black (as it was then). Been using it (or the later version) in my MB 149 since I received it on graduating from university.

 

Though I did have a Parker Arrow Flighter before that I used quite a bit while in school. From memory I used mostly cartridges but I might have had a bottle of Quink somewhere.

I am no longer very active on FPN but feel free to message me. Or send me a postal letter!

Back in the early '60s a bottle of Stephens blue ink, probably washable if they did that. My second bottle was Quink blue - just like Dad's!

Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Black. For use with a brush. I was so excited: I was in college and my mother had never allowed me near the inks and finally I could have some!

 

Fountain pen ink? Private Reserve Plum. I still miss that color, don't have any presently.

Mid 90s washable black Quink, still have it. Second bottle was Penman Emereld that my grandmother didn't much like. I do miss it so.

A long time ago, probably ~Parker Quink Turquoise. More recently, Waterman Florida Blue and Blue-Black. When my addiction really took hold, the first proper one was Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black and I've never looked back since.

Mont Blanc Black. Because the office store was all out of cheaper ink, they sold me the bottle for what I would have paid. A deal, as it turned out. After that, I was hooked and bought vivid colors.

My first bottle came with my first pen when I had no idea what was what. It was a bottle of Waterman's Encre Noire to compliment an Expert.

I started using fountain pens when I was a young child and my Dad bought me my first pen and ink set - my first ink was Sheaffer black.

 

When I returned to fountain pens as an adult, my first ink purchase was Diamine Cerise. I think... It's been a while. :)

Was either MB or Waterman and it was either blue or black. One of those 4 combinations.
