Just because it’s pretty and hard to find, here’s a look at a 2-oz. bottle of Waterman South Sea Blue ink:
The bottom of the bottle clearly shows its origin:
I got this at National Bookstore-Greenbelt 1 branch, which sometimes carries a few bottles of Waterman ink. I’ve bought Violet from them, and just missed Green and Red (someone else had bought their only bottles just weeks ago). They still have a bottle of Blue-Black. Who knows when they’ll get more in.
Stock up on them. Though Waterman ink isn’t waterproof (see inks test in a previous post), it’s smooth and the colors are intense, even after the ink has dried; it’s perfect for everyday use.
Next item to collect: ink bottles! I get dibs on the junkyards in the Sta. Ana-San Andres-Makati area!
