A very nice friend found a partially full bottle of Parker Penman Sapphire for me, and it arrived on Friday.
I don’t chase vintage inks, so this will be my first and last bottle of this one, but it’s great to have more to use. PPS is a great blue color, very deep, with nice shading. This ink is saturated, is not easy to clean, and it has red sheen out the wazoo. I like less saturated inks; I like easy-to-clean inks; and I’m neutral on sheen. And I still adore PPS. It is special.
I put it in a Kaweco AL-Sport with extra-fine nib this time.
