Akkerman 05 Shocking Blue from the Standard collection is a deep sapphire blue ink with high pink sheen. It dries in 40 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has an average flow. Akkerman ink originates in the Netherlands.

Shocking Blue is the single most popular color of blue in the entire Akkerman line of inks. It boasts a rich sapphire hue and has wonderful shading properties with a rich pink sheen. Number five is absolutely a professionally appropriate color and just a beautiful color of blue all around.

Originally made to celebrate their 100th anniversary, this ink comes in a vintage-style 60mL glass bottle with a narrow neck and a marble stopper that creates a well at the top to aid in filling pens, allowing you to get every last drop of ink from the bottle.

Named for Shocking Blue, a Dutch rock band, formed in The Hague in 1967. Their biggest hit, "Venus", went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1970, and the band had sold 13.5 million discs by 1973, but the group disbanded in 1974. (Source: Wikipedia)
