I do believe you are correct Gerry... opening an old bottle of Waterman ink is right up there with the smell of fresh baked bread and apple pie.

Alright, KCat came through and I am now in business to trade with anyone who wants. I know my colors might not jump out at you, but nothing tried nothing gained.

Well up till now I've only been able to watch (enviously!) of all the inky shananigans going on in here because I only had 4 inks (and three of those were blue!), but I've got a few more so I thought I'd dive in!!

I have:

Florida Blue

Mont Blanc

Diamine (for an idea of color, see here)
Prussian Blue

I'd like to try:

PR Fiesta Red
PR Black Cherry
PR Tanzanite
Noodlers Cayenne

I have:

  • black
  • Nightshade
  • Iraqi Indigo
  • Blue-Black
  • Zhivago
  • Walnut
  • Aircorp blue-black
  • Navajo Turquoise
  • blue (just plain ol' blue)
Private Reserve:
  • Lake Placid Blue
  • Fiesta Red
  • Skrip black
What I want:
  • **I'll trade for pretty much anything I don't have, so this is not a conclusive list**
  • Noodler's Eternal Brown
  • MB racing green
  • other waterproof colors
  • greens and browns
  • burgundy inks
  • any fast-drying inks (particularly dark, saturated colors)
  • dark colors--greens, reds, blues, etc. that seem almost black
  • something else?
I figure anything I don't have is worth trading for; cheaper than the whole bottle at least.

To quote KCat, I'm really saturated with ink. Engorged. And I'm in Italy, so it's not always easy to trade, like at the pen club meetings in the US or Israel, or wherever. I would prefer to trade than to sell and buy, so here's what I have for trade, and what I am seeking:
Omas Vespucci Red - full, brand new in Vespucci box, with Vespucci label, etc. (125ml) - I would like to trade this for, say three new bottles of PR: Blue Suede, Fiesta Red & Avacado.
PR American Blue, Visconti Ultramarine (turquoise) - large, old fashioned "hourglass" bottle with base, Herbin Poussiere de Lune, and 85-90% full bottles of Visconti Green (smaller hourglass bottle) and Noodler Ottoman Azure. I can also offer Sheaffer Peacock Blue (NOS), Visconti Black (large, old style bottle) and Lapis (same).
I'm looking for Sheaffer Burgundy, Caran d'Ache Turquoise, Jansen Stahlblau (and the items listed above).
Still seeking the One Pen to Rule Them All...
