Should have these next week:

 

KWZ Dromgoole's Exclusive Discovery Green (another sheen ink)

Dromgoole's Noodler's Churchill's True Blue Anti-Fascist (that's a mouthful)

Both looked too interesting to pass up when I put in an order earlier today.

I could have sworn I picked up a bottle of the Churchill True Blue last fall at the Noodler's table at the Commonwealth Pen Show.  But what I've done with it since?  Anyone's guess.  So looking forward to the review.

Two bottles each of Iroshizuku Tsuyu-kusa and Sailor's Sailor.


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Pilot Blue Black, because I was excited to ink up the new Emperor with it and bummed to discover it comes with Blue.  No, the ink in the package was not a deciding factor on the pen :-)

 

Pelikan Violet and Edelstein Tanzanite.  A spur of the moment thing: while ordering my first Pelikan pen I figured it would be reasonable to get my first couple of Pelikan inks at the same time.  Saves on shipping, right?

Edelstein Tanzanite

 

The box says "Extra soft ink". I've said "meh, marketing", then filled my pen & understood what they've meant.

It's indeed an extra soft ink with lovely color.

Not sure what to think of that but I'll find out soon. The pen has been back-ordered for two+ months and to be honest I have no recollection of why I picked those two inks other than being Pelikan. I might have spent time reading reviews and decided they met my interest du jour. Or maybe it was just a brief moment of "ooh pretty" while scrolling through swabs on that vendor's web site.

If you don't mind, what's the name of your new (or first) bird?

 

Pelikan Violet also looks nice. I have a bottle but didn't try that one yet. I also have a m205 Olivine sitting in its box but, I want to empty a couple of pens first to fill it with something. :)
