I was wondering the same thing, so I did a Google search and found some of their colors.

 

I also found this old post on FPN of comparisons of 13 colors, and if you scroll down further Amberlea added a bunch of samples which help put colors into perspective.

What's the price on the new Akkerman ink - smaller bottles (50 ml?)?

As far as colors, I knew from the Atlanta Pen Show that Vanness (what a great store/nice people!) did not have or had sold out of a number of colors and was wondering more about what was in stock at this time.

Thanks for the link. Even the great Akkerman ink with free shipping at $29.00 a bottle is a bit much for me right now.

 

Guess I'll have to make do with what I have until I can afford to buy it or possibly set up a group buy.

 

Anyone have an empty bottle for sale at a reasonable price or I will swap for an Iroshizuku bottle?

How much does it come to per bottle in a group buy?

Wow you really love that #5 Shocking Blue. It seems to be a popular choice. It wasn't one of my 4 first choice colors, maybe I'm just not seeing it right and something is lost when I look at it on screen. I was thinking #8, #15, #18 and #24. Now I'm thinking #5, #8, #13 and #18. (since they're sold out of #15 & #24).

 

Edited to fix my reply, somehow my text got mixed it with the quoted section. Hope it works this time.

If I understand correctly, Akkerman is sold in the Netherlands? Shouldn't it be more cost effective to order directly since you are closer?

I picked up 4 bottles at the Atlanta Pen Show - #5, 11, 15 and 28… The 28 has wonderful shading with a broad italic nib!  Highly recommend the nice folks at Vanness - Lisa and Wendi were so nice to work with at the show!

I am sorry for the delay in responding- We usually get on FPN during the weekend - The bottles are $29.00 each- we typically carry all colors- we did run out of 11,15, 16, 20-24 and 29 during the week. We will be restocked by end of next week.- the most popular colors overall are 5, 11, 15, and 22. We had never taken the ink on the road until Atlanta and orange as well as grey were popular choices as well.

We restocked and now are out of a few different colors- but should be 100% restocked by Mothers Day.

It's named after a famous Indonesian restraunt in The Hague.

Very interesting about the naming of the Garuda Rood color. I received my package from Vanness yesterday. They do an AWESOME job at packing the inks, you can kick the box down the street and nothing will break. :D I picked up #5, #8, #13 and #18 plus a few other brands I hadn't tried before, Diamine Syrah, Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses, and Private Reserve Avocado. My ink exposure has been limited so I'm trying to expand my horizons and try new brands and colors ... and maybe I'll even find some new favorites.

I picked up the #5 Shocking Blue and #10 IG Blue black at the store and couldn't be happier. Going back tonight to look again and see if I need another bottle!
