American Eel inks (or simply Eel inks) contain an added lubricant for keeping piston-filled pens and converters working smoothly. Over time, pistons can become sticky and difficult to operate.
It is often impossible to disassemble the pen or converter to grease the piston head. Filling your pen with one of these inks from time to time will help keep its piston sliding smoothly without the need for complicated maintenance.
Another effect of the added lubricant is that these inks are wet and free-flowing, making them a good choice for pens that are very dry-writing or that have issues with skipping and hard starts.
The downside of Eel inks is that they are slower-drying and more prone to smearing, feathering, and bleed-through than typical inks.
