Notes: Parker Quink has been around for decades, which says a lot about a company. Usually when they’ve been making something for so long, that’s a good sign. While there’s nothing crazy about this ink, it’s a solid performer that gets the job done. Since it’s creation, Parker Quink was advertised as a fast-drying ink that required little maintenance. It’s a smooth writer that flows nicely. I think the saturation could be a bit better and there’s a bit of a greenish tinge to the ink, which I don’t know how I feel about. I prefer my black inks to be black, with no shading. I’ll use a grey if I want some variation, but I like my black to be black. My experience with Parker’s Quink was not bad, but there are definitely other black inks that I would reach for first.
