"What started out as a good product is now becoming a passion of mine." That’s what the Octopus Fluids' chemist, Dr. Kai-Oliver Schäfer said when he was developing these high-quality writing inks. "It’s no longer about writing something beautiful – it’s about beauty itself!"
The parameters he used to assess the quality go beyond colour and saturation. With every lab-scale batch and every writing test, his requirements regarding pleasant shades, a low degree of fraying, optimum drying time, quick writing and smooth gliding increased and became an obsession.
