Blots Iron Gall Ink :

  • Blots Iron Gall Ink is carefully blended to a medieval recipe
  • It flows exceptionally well and makes exquisite hairlines
  • Sharp detail in a distinctive dark velvety blue/black
  • In a wide neck jar - for use with oblique pens
  • On sale elsewhere at 6.80 or 7.00
  • "A "MUST-HAVE" for copperplate
  • Blots is the most traditional and oldest formula for Iron Gall ink still being made commercially, albeit the most acidic. It's derived from the medieval Palatino formula of 1540. The viscosity is perfect. If you want to pull the hairlines and shades of the Old-Timers, Blots is the way to go in my experience." - Nick D'Aquanno

    This was recommended in a couple of texts. I had never heard of it so it was a good surprise to find it so easily and at a reasonable price that i was able to try it out.
