Here is a review of the newer formula of Parker's Quink Blue-Black fountain pen ink. It was purchased on Amazon for only $8.25 shipped. Note: I made a "typo" in the review. The nib on the Esterbrook is a 9550, not a 9668. I got it mixed up with the 2668 on my other Esterbrook I bought at the same time. Whoops. :) Without further ado, onto the review...

In conclusion, I really enjoy this ink. I have read other reviews stating that it had no water-resistance, but it does appear to have a little bit of resistance. Most of the ink washed away, but there was still enough to read what was written even after I rinsed it once, swabbed it, rinsed it again, and swabbed it again and let it dry. I also read in reviews that it was more of a dark blue than a blue-black, and while it looks that way before it dries, I found that after it dries it turns into a nice, true blue-black. A great ink for under $9 shipped. Recommended!
Any questions or comments are most welcome.
