Dip into a six-pack of American microbrewer ink, with six perennial favorites of colors. Levenger Bottled Ink is what fountain pen ink should be: smooth and rich, designed to last, formulated to delight. Levenger's Perennial Six-Pack gives you six different colors of ink: Regal, Forest, Empyrean, Claret, Skies of Blue and Blue Bahama. 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. Enjoy ink that's American-made and rigorously tested. 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. Levenger has been offering this microbrew since 1998. All the colors in the Perennial Six-Pack are washable. In the photo, the color you see in the bottle is lightened a bit to better show you the ink color. .

Note: My earlier review of Levenger Cobalt Blue follows. I stand behind my love for the color and still use it for personal notes and the like but I dare not use it for everyday use:
I love this color! This blue literally jumps off of the page, especially with a buff colored quality paper. Beware, however, that it will bleed right through some cheaper notebook papers and actually spot the page beneath. This is an ink that really flows and requires a certain type of paper. I have yet to figure that part out. Some of my 25% cotton bond papers work very well and others behave (feather and bleed) more like cheap 20 pound copy paper even though they are of 24 pound weight and have a quality finish. Consequently this is an ink that I use selectively. I find it works well on all of my checks and I have a personal stationary that seems to love this ink. I think pen selection is also critical with this ink. A pen that tends to write wet with most inks would most likely be problematic. I have an inexpensive Hero with a fine nib that seems to work quite well with Levenger Cobalt Blue, provided I am using a compatible paper. Were it not for these limitations, I would give this ink 5 stars.
FYI - I did NOT receive a discount on the purchase of this ink.
Fascinating little ink. It goes down a vivid, vibrant red. And it dries a vivid, vibrant red. But after a couple days, it gets a little darker and starts to show some brilliant gold sheen. Shading is meh, saturation is medium-high, and ZERO waterproofness. Bottle is decent, flow is wet. Overall? I think this is a fantastic red ink and I will be using it regularly in my 90+ ink collection. The slight color change is very cool. Almost schaeffer skrip red in initial color, almost sailor oku-yama after a few days.
