i think white pens go best with brighter blue inks or even the subtleness of grey inks.  perhaps Noodler's Ottoman Azure Blue? or maybe Diamine Grey?

 

I unfortunately struggle writing with grey (including pencil) because of my colour-confusion issues: they all look very, very faint to me. 

 

Momiji cleans out easily and is quite pretty.

I have a sample of Momji in my ink box so I might load up the converter when the Waterman's I-Don't-Know-Which-It-Is Blue cartridge runs out


You can spot a writer a mile off, they're the ones meandering in the wrong direction muttering to themselves and almost walking into every second lamppost.

You might also like a dark green - easy to see - and green's aren't notorious stainers.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

You wouldn't have one of your lovely written samples of Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku, would you?

I've never tried the ink, but if someone sent me a sample, it will be on my website for the 2013 Fade Olympics.

When I was in high school, my white plastic Waterman was filled with red ink. Just regular red cartridges, that said. Nothing too fancy, but the contrast was cool.

 

 

 

note: I though I was the only person concerned with matching in some way the pen body color with ink!  :lol:

I think a fair few of us at least try to match them, to be honest! It never occurred to me when I only had one pen, but as soon as I got the second, they each took an ink that matched their barrels. Made it easier.

More of us match than you might think.  

 

BTW, I love your avatar.
