10.0 Who makes fountain pen ink?

Ink is made by almost all of the "reputable" pen companies. By that I mean that Waterman, Parker, Sheaffer, Omas, Cartier, Aurora and so forth distribute their own inks. Some may distribute ink made by others (Cross, for instance, sells Pelikan ink in Cross bottles).

There are also other companies who make ink without actually distributing pens. Herbin, for instance, isnít known for fountain pens but is known for ink and dipping nibs, and has some of the prettiest colors around. And, a company named Private Reserve is also shipping just ink (I like their Lake Placid Blue).
