Blue Coral Snake – Bookbinder’s Snake Ink

Bookbinders is an Australian online store that creators claim to be  “on a relentless quest in search of products that will fire the imagination of the 21st century writer”. There mauy be something to their words – the company presents their products in attractive and inspiring way. Some time ago Bookbinders started yo offer Snake Ink to their customers. The ink is sold in 30 ml bottles inspired in design “by the wily snake oil salesmen of the early 1900’s, and in colour by the beautiful and dangerous snakes of the world”.

Everglades Ratsnake ink could be quite nice if only it would write at all. Sadly the content of my sample turned into some kind of oily slime and it didn’t flow in any pen. Basically no pen filled with this ink would write. Null. Zero. The ink stays in cartridge or converter.

I’ve made writing samples by dipping the pen in the ink. I’m not sure what happened to the sample or is it the ink “normal” behaviour but after this experience I would never put this ink into a pen.
