A while back I bought a bottle of Osmiroid ink at a flea market for about 35-cents. I figured I could use the bottle if nothing else. Knowing to stay away from art and many calligraphy inks, I had generally put Osmiroid as a brand in that category, right or wrong. I've kept it sitting around for about a year myself but started to dump it recently--but thought better of it. After all, it's labeled for fountain pens and still looks pretty good inside. I figured I might try it in some of my less used pens or just keep it around for dipping.

 

So, just curious about recent experience--anyone use old Osmiroid Free Flowing Black Ink lately? Problems? Thoughts? Thanks!

Never heard of this ink until 5 years ago here. If I ever find some, I'll try it out for sure.

Good link, thanks. I did do a search but didn't come up with that. Guess I should have just searched Osmiroid Ink vs. Osmiroid Free Flowing Black Ink.

I use the Osmiroid Free Flowing Black Ink in my drawings, i am a artist/draftsman.

 

this is the only ink i can use that will flow through my extra fine nibs and are water souable enough to do washes with it.

 

can anyone recommend inks that i could use that would compare to the Osmiroid Free Flowing Black Ink

 

OR

 

do you know where i can buy some of this discontinued vintage ink, i am willing to Overpay for the ink if you have some or know someone who can get some.

 

i have been trying for years to get more ink, but just can't find any.

 

Osmiroid Free Flowing, I used black the most, would also be interested in blue and brown.

I found two bottles of these today.  I suppose they are not the same as the free flowing one.  I does has a nice shade of black similar to Manuscript Black that I use in FPs.  Not sure that I want to ink my regular FPs with these.  It does flow reasonably well in Osmiroid basic calligraphy that I got with them.

I've used it. It's really black. No problems with it.

I am new to fountain pens and ink.  I am taking a watercolor class and I need to find an ink that is waterproof, like an India Ink. I have Osmiroid Free Flowing Black Ink and Higgins Calligraphy waterproof black ink.  Which one can I use to sketch a drawing and then won't smear when I paint it with watercolors? Thanks!
