Robert Oster - Sooty Shearwater Fountain Pen Ink - A Special Color for Zeynep

$17.00 USD


fikret zeynep galen

Forever in memory of Zeynep - Galen Leather's founder. She said, "One day, if you miss me, look at the Sooty Shearwaters."

Sooty Shearwater is a beautiful bird. This bird and the sea-teal ink in her memory were amongst her favorite things. 

In memory of Zeynep, we decided to offer a limited edition 50ml plastic bottle of Robert Oster Signature fountain pen ink in the color Sooty Shearwater.

Robert Oster Signature Inks are handmade in Australia. The recyclable PET bottles are manufactured in Australia's first carbon-neutral plastics plant.

A message from Robert Oster:

My great interest in fountain pen inks – and by extension inks that combine many creative applications – began with the birth of my love of fountain pens in 1989.

As Robert Oster Signature Inks are quite recent to the market, think of the interim between 1989 and today, as the fertile ground into which my present love of all things ink was seeded and grown.

The contents and packaging of my Inks are all nature-friendly and the colors a genuine inventory of the Australian palette.

Robert Oster Signature originates from one of the most famous wine-producing regions of the world, the Coonawarra district of South Australia, an idyllic setting with great influence on the senses. There is my inspiration. It’s a joy to share it with you.

A Beautiful Fountain Pen Color To Go With A Beautiful Story

By the online color sample, based on other Galen products and the story behind the color, I knew this color would be beautiful.

It Is Beautiful.

Unique name for a unique ink

Robert Oster inks are in my top fav’s, and this Sooty Shearwater is no exception! It’s almost a turquoise color, but not quite.
You won’t be sorry if you get it!

Amazing gorgeous colour

In my favourite colour, and a tribute to Zeynep, this is a glorious ocean blue-green ink. It reminds me of the ocean here in Australia, in fact it is made in Australia, but I purchased it from Galen Leather in Turkey. Another quality ink from the talented Robert Oster, but this has a sentimental link to Turkey. I like to use it in my Narwhal Poseidon Blue pen also purchased from Galen Leather

New Favourite ink

I ordered Sooty Shearwater because it was an ink colour that I prefer in the peacock to teal range. I am enjoying writing with this ink. It’s wet and smooth and the colour is delightful to me. I’ve had compliments on the colour from people who have seen it.
