DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Parker Quink is a high-quality and smooth flowing ink that has been used for almost a century. Quink ink (named by blending the words \"quick\" and \"ink\") was developed in the early 1900's as a revolutionary ink that eliminated the need for blotting (from Wikipedia). These days the majority of fountain pen inks available feature smooth flow and quick drying times, but the Parker Quink still remains as a classic favorite. The line has beautifully mature bottle ink colors in black, washable blue and permanent blue. Washable blue can more easily be washed from hands and clothing. Quink ink cartridges also available.

Note: The term "Permanent" in the name indicates that this ink may permanently stain clothing. The ink is not necessarily permanent on paper.

This is the classic Parker...

This is the classic Parker blue-black ink we were supplied with in school in England when I was a schoolchild (although these days, it is made in France, according to the bottle). It is a perfect match for my vintage Parker 51, and works well in other pens- though for some reason writes a bit lighter in my Lamy Safari with italic nib, and in my Plumix (also italic). I haven't found this to be the case with other blue-black inks I have tried.
If you don't know already, you should be aware that "permanent" in this ink's name is a somewhat loose term, applying more to the stains it might leave on your clothing than to its archival properties.. It is definitely not waterproof, and has, in my experience, only slightly better than average resistance to light for a bluish ink. Still, I find that it behaves impeccably in the pen, has a pleasantly neutral (not too green) blue-black tone, comes i n a well-made, ergonomically sensible bottle with a sturdy, Bakelite-ish cap, and is inexpensive. I use it for most of my quick work, and have yet to find a blue-black ink I like better.

Terrific blue black ink....
September 22, 2014
Terrific blue black ink. There is a reason it has been around so long. The lines are blue with black edges where the ink line gets heavier which of course is the magic of blue black ink. You can certainly spend more but you won't find a better quality ink that flows as freely and resists clogs. If you want an old style resevoir ink well bottle hit Ebay for Sheaffer Scrip ink in the old round bottle. Relatively easy to find I have a couple I use for my favorite inks. The glass side resevoir lets you easily see the surface of the ink so you don't get the tip of the converter, snorkel or aerometric cartridge covered in messy ink. Quick is great ink.

But what I would do to find one of those old Quink bottles with the little reservoir on the side, where you tip the bottle, set it down, and can fill your pen or cartridge easily without getting your fingers stained. If If I could lay my (inkstained) hands on just one, I'd refill it with this beautiful blue-black forever.

Very happy with my purchase. This is a very dark ink and looks very elegant on paper. Seems to dry fairly quickly, has good flow and the price is right. Will certainly buy again.

This is good ink as far as consistent flow but the color is not my favorite as it is too heavily weighted to the blue side for my taste. If you like the color, go for it.
