Levenger Bottled Ink

Price: $13.00
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. 

  • 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
Love the amethyst ink I love the amethyst bottled ink for grading papers. I make lots of comments, and when done it looks festive rather than like I opened a vein over their papers. May 11, 2013
A great all-around ink I was first attracted to this ink for the bottle but the ink itself pleasantly surprised me. The Amethyst is a medium purple color that would work for friendly correspondence when one gets tired of the usual blue or black. This is a highly saturated ink with great flow. There is no feathering of the ink with the pen/nib combination I am using and the color dries rich and vibrant. It is a very fast drying ink with a dry time of about three seconds on average paper and about five seconds on high quality paper. The bottle is a true inkwell and the design is both beautiful and practical. The shape makes it easy to hold and the plastic insert is great for getting a good fill, even when the ink level in the bottle begins to drop from previous fills. I have already added two more colors to my ink collection and just wish that Levenger ventured into even more than the fourteen colors they currently offer. May 4, 2013
I own lots of Levenger's Inks Shiraz is a really striking color. I usually stick with True Teal and blue bahama, but I wanted a change of pace and this color certainly provided it. I admit that I love using my fountain pens at the Apple stores (most of their younger sales persons have never seen one in action), and this color certainly grabs their interest, As with all of the inks I have ordered, it provides ease when loading my fountain pens, which are the only means of writing I prefer. The only drawback is that I can't use it to sign legal documents (only blue or black are acceptable), but for notes it is wonderful. May 2, 2013
Fantastink! I LOVE this ink. I bought it in Raven and Empyrean. I haven't bought a black ink until now because I thought they were boring, but Raven and brought me around! All the colors are so gorgeous I can't wait to buy more. The bottles it comes in are great too. Attractive and easy to use. I am definitely a fan. April 6, 2013
This is the best ink I've ever used. It's nice and smooth and very bold and doesn't fade. It will be my choice of inks for now on. January 31, 2013
The Reds I am the proud owner of six different ink colors. They all work like a dream. However I have noticed that the inks I own in the red spectrum, Claret and Shiraz, do not look much like what was pictured. Nothing huge, but a little annoying on first use. August 13, 2012
My pen has never worked better! I have a Cross Townsend pen (circa 1995) bought for me by my late mother. I've always liked how I write better with it, but thought it was because it slowed me down. And, it's been a little scratchy. I picked up a bottle of Levenger's ink in Teal since it coordinates with my wedding stationary and am absolutely thrilled that with it, my pen works better than it ever has! Smooth, silky, quick yet still neat writing-- I never thought that pen had such potential! Such a pleasant surprise. The ink is a gorgeous, rich colour.The colour is even, there's no bleed, and I've had no trouble with the dry time or smudges (even when doing a pile of thank you notes). I'm now completely hooked on Levenger's inks and will never go back to the Cross cartridges. In fact, I'm already pondering another converter and another ink colour... it'll be tough to pick just one, since you have such beautiful options. June 14, 2012
