P.W. Akkerman #05 Shocking Blue 60ml
The Akkerman "baby long neck" bottles have a capacity of approximately 60 ml. The faceted ink bottle is characterized by a long neck containing a glass marble.
Akkerman fountain pen inks are suitable for any type of fountain pen and have been given names from the Hague
By tilting the unique (closed) ink bottle, the neck fills with ink. Tip it upright again and the marble falls back in place, preventing the ink from flowing back. This creates a reservoir of ink from which the fountain pen can easily be filled, even when the bottle is almost empty.
Shocking Blue is a band from The Hague founded in 1967 by Robbie van Leeuwen. This composite band with 4 talented people from Hagene released a hit in 1969 with which they were the first Dutch band to score a number 1 hit in the American Billboard hot 100 with the song: Venus.
