Noodler's Ink Baystate Concord Grape Bottled Ink 3oz
The reintroduction of a rare (and as of recently unavailable) mid-1940s family of inks that was once very popular in the New England area has been well received by enough pen users to warrant the expansion of these inks. Despite the highly unusual nature of this ink family (particularly when Baystate Blue is compared to far weaker nondurable modern inks) many Noodler's customers have requested that it be expanded beyond "Baystate Blue". The following two colors can be mixed with Baystate Blue and share some of its contrast and intensity - though do not share all of its properties (Cranberry is not waterproof, and Grape is only partially water resistant - both can be removed with bleach from paper). They have more variable pH levels - and when mixed the pH can and will migrate. They should not be mixed with with any other inks EXCEPT those with the "Baystate" label. They are "exclusive to themselves" in behavior as an ink family and can be destroyed if mixed with certain iron derived European inks.
