First Ink In Parker Vac?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm going to get my Parker Vacumatic back from restoration in the coming weeks, and I'd really like to ink it up with an amazing ink.

 

The inks I currently own bottles of are:

Parker Quink Blue-Black (the first bottle of ink I ever bought myself!)

Private Reserve Ebony Purple

Noodler's Army Green

J. Herbin Rouge Hematite (this one's basically out of the running already, even though I love it)

Diamine Asa Blue

Diamine Amethyst

 

Please keep in mind that I live in the deepest darkest depths of American Samoa. Though Goulet does ship here.

Vacumatic being a classic I'll choose a classic colour like blue, blue-black or black.

There couldn't be anything more appropriate and fitting than the first ink you've already listed.

I avoid putting staining inks in vacs, to try to preserve the clarity as long as possible.

I personally will not put anything in my vintage pens but Waterman, Sheaffer and perhaps a few Diamine. As mentioned above I also lean toward a blue/black or blue and not a saturated ink. I try to go with safe, well mannered inks similar to the history of the pen.

 

I do have one Parker "51", not a vac, that I use only with Noodlers Violet Vote (formerly called Iraqi Indigo). Even then it will get an infrequent partial fill with Waterman Purple. The sac is stained.

 

Enjoy your pen.
