Levenger Bottled Ink

Price: $12.00
Item: PR0220
Dip into a classic American microbrew
If you still practice the ancient and satisfying art of writing with a fountain pen, you should be rewarded with ink that more than satisfies. Levenger Bottled Ink is what fountain pen ink should be: smooth and rich, designed to last, formulated to delight.

Why you'll experience such a satisfying write
Levenger inks resist fading as well as feathering. They are moist on your nib but dry readily on your paper (especially helpful for left-handed writers). They're lightfast and maintain a crisp line without spreading. The even saturation ensures no skipping.

And Levenger inks come in a panoply of colors -- to match your mood, suit the occasion, enliven the page.

Enjoy ink that's American-made and rigorously tested
We brew Levenger ink right here in the U.S. The formula is closely held and conforms to our exacting specifications. As part of our testing, we've asked professional calligraphers to put the inks through their paces.

Levenger inks have also been time-tested by the many customers who have dipped their nibs into a bottle. We've been offering this microbrew since 1998.

Buy your Levenger ink by the bottle or the six-pack
Choose how you wish to color your writing world -- bottle by different-color bottle, or in one of the prepackaged six-packs we offer.

And yes, Levenger fountain pen cartridges contain the same finely formulated ink.

A few tips about the colors of Levenger inks
The Raven Black is semi-permanent, and therefore ideal for record-keeping. The other colors are washable.

In the photo, the color you see in the bottle is lightened a bit to better show you the ink color. To see the color that your ink will be on paper, see the color blocks under 'Choose Color' (below).

  • 50 ml
  • Glass bottle
  • Inkwell inside the bottle for easier dipping

Dip your nib into the ink designed to perform on the page with every stroke of your pen.

Poem Reflections on ‘Skies of Blue’ Bottled Ink As my fingers glide across the paper My handwriting--almost calligraphy— Enhanced by my treasured fountain pen My friend for over 40 years I write my composed thoughts Which flow quickly from my brain Through my finger tips I feel as if I am Uncorking the bottle Unleashing the ‘Skies of Blue’ Of my mind Expansive thoughts, pent up thoughts Which reveal my emotions and states of mind These molecules flow Gathering speed as they race toward their destination Like a river cascading From its source At the pinnacle of the mountain Hidden in its recesses Gathering and merging at the top Then exploding into a waterfall Descending from heights Crashing against the boulders At its base Then continuing its journey To its destination The ‘skies of blue’ Provides the blanket That overlooks the world below And watches as the river flows Watching as each blue molecule Is reflected back to its source Of water I read my words Written in ‘skies of blue’ My thoughts Are reflected back to me And I absorb them in my eye’s mind That contains my essence Of heart and soul And the clarity of ‘Skies of blue’ Is evident In my world And My life is enhanced April 19, 2010
Cobalt Blue Poem New Pelikan pen Levenger Cobalt Blue Ink Each one made for each Brilliant blue pen strokes Never clogging, never skips Flow across the page My letter finished Sapphire jewels on paper Flies off to a friend April 19, 2010
First bottle, but not my last The variety of colors offered made it tough for me to pick any one bottle! That being said, I am quite impressed with my first ever bottled ink! It is quite smooth and crisp, and I can attest to the ink's strength since I got some on my fingers while filling my pen (I'm a beginner, ok? :) and have yet to find something strong enough to wash it off...

Pomegranate This is a wonderful color, I wanted something "different" than the usual reds/browns that you see elsewhere. This fit the bill perfectly. Very distinctive color and yes it does remind me of the fruit. July 26, 2014
Shiraz is actually brown Although the ink itself is terrific and the shiraz is rich in color, it wasn't what I was looking for. Instead of the rich berry color I wanted (which looked like it would be in the writing sample), it was actually a brown color with a hint of red in it. I did find what I wanted in the pomegranate color, and am seriously considering returning the shiraz. (Will have to see if it's worth it in that I imagine I'd have to pay for the return shipping.) Note that if you want to match colors, the color blocks are the way to go, and not the bottles or the writing sample shown. July 21, 2014
Beautiful color! I was looking for rich berry color to match an existing color palette and found it with the pomegranate color. Note that if you want to match colors, the color clocks are the way to go, and not the bottles or the writing sample shown. July 21, 2014
Love the Ink I have always used cartridges to refill my fountain pens, until my Levenger fountain pen collection began to grow. I bought Blazing Sunset and Claret, and am in love with both of them. The ink was easy to load, and the variety of colors is exciting. The only bad think about the beautiful ink is that I am now compelled to buy more pens? July 10, 2014
Cocoa - Brown review Wonderful ink ... while i used it on calendared paper, i have seen no feathering and bleeding whatsoever. Flow was perfect, even on an extra-fine nib. I had no troubling starting the flow either. July 5, 2014
Outstanding product My hobby is calligraphy. I make bookmarks, note cards and posters as gifts for my friends. One of my friends regularly puts in her "order" for note cards. She commented that the color and quality of the lettering on the last few was so much better than previous cards. I confessed that I had switched to using your ink in my pens. The colors are true and vivid. The ink flows freely which has improved my form. The resulting product is noticeably improved. Well worth the money. July 3, 2014
