This seems to be a rather popular thread in the writing instruments forum, so why not in the inky thoughts forum?!

So what are you waiting for?

I have 3 bottles of Diamine on the way: Steel Blue, Jet Black, and Poppy Red. Diamine said they were including a special gift with my order. I understand this means an assortment of ink cartridges. smile.gif

If you bought from the Diamine UK site; it's probably a nice box of assorted cartridges which I also snagged with a 4 bottle of ink special. I have the Poppy also and found it to be a bit dull in shade and richness; I am not the best evaluator perhaps and I am going to check it out in some other pens as it's a New Century color vs. the regular line. Let me know how you like it or perhaps others reading this could weigh in here.

You must've gotten one of the last bottles of El Lawrence as they were out when I looked and placed an order today. Oh well, They had gotten Kung Te-Cheng back in stock, so I will be enjoying that in a few days.

Yeah, I think there were only 2 or three bottles of El' Lawrence left when I ordered them late last week. I had actually been waiting for them to get Ottoman Rose back in stock which I think was the same time they got Kung Te-Cheng back in stock too. That's another interesting ink I'd like to try at some point. It's an endless cycle for me rolleyes.gif .

North African Violet!

Actually, I needed a Pilot/Nakimi converter, so I ordered two from Swisher...and then there was that lovely new Safari color (pink!)...

So, I decided to get some ink too, just to finish off my bank account.

Ostensibly, it's for the wife's birthday... but funny how much I'm looking forward to this package too:

Pilot Iroshizuku (to go with the pre-birthday gift of Kon-Peki)
* Tsutsuji
* Tsuki-yo
* Momiji (I'm really looking forward to this vermillion!)
* Asa-gao

As a writer, she tends to prefer different inks for different stories or edits... so I'll just call her an enabler and be happy with it :-P

MB Racing Green...

Plug for FPN Tulipe Noir. Can't say enough good things about this color. It's my only Noodler's-made ink, but it's one of my favorites!

I have 12 ink samples coming from Pear Tree - in addition to the four I just got - so I can keep looking for my favorites! So far I love J Herbin's Cafe des Iles, Noodlers Antietam and La Coleur Royale, Herbin's Eclat de Saphir, Sailor's Red Brown, and I bought two pens on eBay for my sample of BSB that's coming in these new samples.
