RE: [Rollei] still OT: My New Fountain Pen

www.levenger.com sells all kinds of fountain pen ink. I like their house
brand mocha and Parker cocoa (brown) inks. I sign about 3,000
diplomas/certificates each year, and the brown shade looks good on the buff
paper and also shows that it is an orginal signature rather than a xeroxed

Incorrect.   I use Montblanc/Pelikan (though, Pelikan is my favorite) with 
Sheaffer  ink.  No
problems.   Parker used  to make ink called Quink.  I don't seem to find 
them here.   They are
still made in India under license.   I liked their Blue-Black ink.  Its 
color is blue-black while
writing, but after a day or so, it becomes dark, beautiful shade.
