Skies Of Blue - Levenger


Recommended Posts

It seems Levenger is family company that offers a wide variety of products. Levenger designs many of its products, with approximately 75% of its product line being proprietary. The company describes itself as a champion of Slow Tech. Levenger CEO and co-founder Steve Leveen has aligned the company with the Conscious Capitalism movement. To that end, the company has created an initiative called Partnering for Good, which pays product-based royalties to nonprofit institutions whose missions are connected to reading or learning.

Among other things the company offers a line of fountain pen iks.

Levenger's Skies of Blue is pleasant but rather unisnpiring blue ink. In some pens it can look quite vibrant, in others however it's flat. In my Sheaffer Targa it behaves perfectly well but isn't really exciting.

Thanks for the review.

That looks like a nice color. I've never tried any of the Levenger inks, so I'm curious about how well you think Skies of Blue behaves (dry times, flow, show/bleedthrough, and so on).

Thank you for the review. I am trying to break out of my black only ink and your review is helpful. This ink looks like a good blue that might be what I need. I have used Levenger ink some years ago - Raven Black, of course.


Thank you for your thorough review.

The only ink I've ever poured out and was glad to see it disappear. Had 2 bottles of the stuff. Worst performance ever--feathered and bled through every good paper--name it, including Tomoe River. I have other Levenger colors that I adore, but this one was not one of them.
