Iron Throne ink is always freshly made in wee batches!
The story behind this batch's inspiration:
There was this prolific ink chemist, back in the 1800s, from Scotland, who was totally obsessed with making the perfect ink. Iron gall was the norm back then but he concocted some 293 (!) specific recipes of all sorts. Obviously, this man was no slouch with experimentation. 💪🏻✍🏻
I've been reading up on his findings and he was AHmazing. And his surname was Stark. A bit further into my reading it hit me: omg! Stark. Iron Gall. Ned Stark. GoT. IRON THRONE!! YES!!
So this batch, his favorite formulation that was his go-to for personal correspondence, is dedicated to the King of Iron Gall inks, James Stark. But this batch isn't one that happens in just a week or two of creation. James Stark was a staunch proponent of the superior slow brewing time--an 8 week gradual fermentation for the oak galls to fully release their precious tannic-gallic acids.
Available in four ways: 30ml frosted bottles with aluminum cap, and 50ml, 100ml, and 150ml Erlenmeyer beakers with wax-sealed cork stoppers.
INTERNATIONAL: If you wish to place a group order with other calligraphers I can combine shipping once I calculate the package weight.
I love this ink so much I can't imagine ever going back to mass produced inks again. This is my favorite!

Loved the packaging so much, that I didn't want to open! I finally opened them, and I'm in love! Shipping was fast. I will definitely purchase again.

I am just so in love with these inks and this company. As always product came in a timely manner and was packaged perfectly. I cannot stress how much I love this ink-the last batch I purchased (Iron Throne) is absolutely amazing. It really does start out as a shade of indigo when applied to paper, but then darkens to black like Sylvia Plath. Holy crap. So happy! Keep up the great work guys!
