This handmade fountain pen ink is a further development of the popular Berlin Notebook Blue No. 1. While most fountain pen enthusiasts appreciated the coppery sheen of our No. 1, we also received many requests asking for the same blue ink, only without the sheen.
Great idea, we thought! It’s just much more complicated than it sounds. The original No. 1 is a very rich color – yes, we didn’t save money on the color! – and the sheen is a natural quality of such intensive ink. It’s not an extra additive. It’s instead something like an overtone in music. You can’t just cut the sheen away. And it also heavily depends on the paper.
Berlin Notebook No. 1 BLACK LABEL is an attempt to do the impossible. After uncountable tests, we found a formula with a color matching the spectrum of the No.1 and (almost) no sheen. We hope you will enjoy it as you did the original No. 1!
Berlin Notebook Blue No. 1 BLACK LABEL is a unique fountain pen ink composition by the contemporary painter Viktor Walter.

Please notice: The experience of fountain pen ink depends heavily on the context. The type of the fountain pen, size of the nib, quality of the paper, writing style, and even the environment’s temperature and humidity may all strongly influence the ultimate experience of a fountain pen ink.
This water-based ink provides the best possible ink flow in various fountain pens. However, we recommend that you shake the ink bottle before filling up the fountain pen because of the used colors’ intensity.
