Barrister Purple Waterproof - Blackstone Ink
The Barrister series of inks are well behaved, waterproof, permanent fountain pen inks made in Australia by Blackstone Ink. The inks are permanent even with complete immersion in water, fade resistant and highly resistant to bleach, alcohol and mild acids.
The Barrister inks are made with sub-micron sized pigments, instead of the usual soluble dyes. These nano particles are so small that they can easily pass through fountain pen feeds and are treated with a special soluble polymer to overcome their natural attraction to each other.
Blackstone fountain pen ink is packaged in reusable Polypropylene bottles. Polypropylene is a strong and durable plastic and these bottles are practically indestructible. These bottle can be re-purposed as ink carry or storage bottles and Polypropylene is completely recyclable. Fountain pen ink is traditionally packaged in glass bottles which are expensive to manufacture, heavy to ship and break easily.

Caution: This ink has been designed for use in fountain pens and is perfectly safe, however due to the waterproof and permanent nature of the ink, it can be difficult to remove from pens if allowed to dry out in the pen. It may also permanently stain some types of plastic pens, particularly transparent plastic pens.
