Stained Fingers on Thursday - A Review of Parker Blue Ink

I received a cartridge of this nice ink with my Parker Urban. Enjoy!

This scan was done on an HP Deskjet F4280 at 600dpi.
Note: Because these scans are done with a light emitting printer, actual colors will, more likely than not, be slightly darker than they may appear, here. The colors shown, here, are probably a bit more reminiscent of what the ink would be like under a bright light or if it were held up and viewed with a light behind it.


  1. Hi! I stumbled onto your account after looking at Lamy Al-star matte black reviews (which is wonderfully in-depth and impartial), but by far my favourite feature is your weekly ink reviews. As a left handed fountain pen aficionado I was most pleased with your drying time and further observations. I now know to steer clear Parker inks (being slow driers) and that it is safe to give Montblanc a try :) I would further be indebted if you were to review Montverde or Montgrappa inks in the further :) best regards from South Africa.

    1. Hi Marlon,
      I am very glad that you are enjoying the weekly ink reviews! As soon as I can get a hold of some Monteverde and Montegrappa inks, they will be reviewed.
      Thank you for reading!
