Noodler's Liberty's Elysium. It's nice, but I'm not sure if it's unique enough for me to buy a bottle of it. :/

I'm writing an online serial thing. It's urban fantasy. And I have no idea how long it's going to run for.



    Say that again, I have a pen here somewhere...

I've been playing! :thumbup:

In no particular order:
Quink Black (Parker 45)
iroshihzuku Asa-Gao (Wing Sung 237)
J Herbin Rouge Hematite (Guanleming 193 calligraphy nib pen)
Noodler's Kung Te Cheng (Konrad)
De Atramentis Pyotr Illych Tchaikowsky (Guanleming 978 Accountant)
unknown dark blue or blue-black ink that was still in the pen, (Esterbrook SJ) -- this was unwittingly (but fortuitously) reconstituted with distilled water when I was checking to see if the sac was in good condition :clap1:
