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.
