  1. Aged Iron Gall Ink
    $8.00

    Handmade iron gall ink that has been aged for approximately 8 years - there is a very limited supply of this ink.

    Our iron gall ink is a staple at our booth but this version is special and once it is gone... it is gone!

    The age of the ink lends to a darker original color and a quicker oxidation. It is smooth to write with and flows well in both nib and brush. Perfect for use on paper, pergamanata and vellum.
