Quink is the trade name of a very popular ink, used commonly by Parker Pens. This was another Filipino invention by the scientist Fransisco Quisumbing. He designed it after the second world war after graduating from university and failing to succeed in the Philippine Ink Corporation. The name was derived from his own - Quisimbing Ink.
