This ink is good for two-sided writing on bad paper, unusual among fountain pen inks. It is "washable," so parents can give it to children without worrying, and of course it is not good for writing checks. It is erasable/eradicable with sulfate-sulfite eradicators like the Pelikan Super-Pirat, which is useful for students and for personal editing. Like most blue inks for fountain pens, this ink dries to a lighter hue and shade than most blue inks for ballpoint, rollerball and gel pens. It is a little bit darker than Pelikan/Cross Blue and Parker Quink Blue. The new bottle is a good shape for no-spill opening and no-spill filling. This ink is safe for old pens, and it is almost pH neutral.

This ink is from Sheaffer's new factory in Slovenia. This ink is one of the best for writing two-sided on bad paper; it almost never even "shadows" through. Most other fountain pen inks are not well-behaved enough for two-sided writing on bad paper. This ink is washable, so parents can give it to children without worrying. It can also be chemically erased/eradicated by sulfate-sulfite eradicators like the Pelikan Super Pirat, which is convenient for students. I like the blue color, too (darker than both Parker and Pelikan/Cross blues). Furthermore, it is free-flowing and almost pH neutral, so it is safe in new and old fountain pens alike.

It's good ink, but not quite as intensely blue as I remember the older Skrip. However, since you can't get the older Skrip ink anymore, this does a fine job.

On a certain level ink is ink - how much more can you say about it? There certainly are questions of durability, strength, permanence (also known as washability), and the tendency to bleed through a typical sheet of paper. On those counts Sheaffer Skrip is outstanding, especially in terms of durability and strength. What I particularly like about Sheaffer's Skrip over Parker's Quink is that Skrip is less likely to bleed through a sheet of paper to show on the other side. As far as washability/permanence goes, both brands can be got out by pre-treating with Simple Green or hairspray (or both). Loyalty reasons aside Skrip works fine in my Parker, Sheaffer, Eversharp, and Esterbrook fountain pens just fine and I've come to enjoy it over Quink. More importantly Skrip is available in a far wider variety of colors than Quink, including turquoise, purple, and brown, not to mention green, which has been discontinued by Parker.

I'm a fountain pen collector, and my ink of choice is Sheaffer Skrip in blue. I've used Sheaffer Skrip for almost 30 years now, and prefer it to Parker Quink, Montblanc and many of the more expensive inks. In my experience, blue inks tend to be less troublesome, less prone to clogging than the other colors (especially black inks.) Sheaffer Skrip ink flows very well out of alll of my vintage and modern pens also.

While I do miss Sheaffer's old bottle with the little glass reservoir near the top, I very much appreciate the shape of the new bottle; it's awfully hard to tip one of these over by mistake.

I bought this to go with my Sheaffer Viewpoint and am now using it with every pen I own. I've used Parker Quink and Chelpark, but still recommend the dark rich blue of the Sheaffer Skrip.

This ink is excellent! It looks very much like Lamy Blue Ink, but the color is richer and deeper. It looks very good on plain lined paper when used with a Parker Sonnet. This is undoubtedly the nicest blue ink that I have ever used

This is great, affordable, washable ink. It flows very well and rarely feathers or bleeds through on cheap paper.

Not all blue inks have the same blue color. I was pleasantly surprised with the color of this blue ink.
