Apparently there are new Inks:

 

Ghenkis Khan's Shimmering Red (This sounds like somthing with sheen, it's got a red/yellow color band on the box)

Marie Curie's Radium (green)

Emperor's Demise (purple)

Her Majesty's Magenta (red/magenta)

Midnight's Blue (blue/black)

da Vincis's Golden Mind (yellow)

As well as these:

Blue crab is another "vintage writing fluid" type of easy cleanup ink.

My Pens/Nibs (inked/active): Lamy Studio/Vista/Joy (XXF slight-flex custom | 14k EF | EF | F | 14k M | M | B | 14k 1.1 custom | 1.1 | 1.5 | 1.9), TWSBI Diamond 580 (F | Pendleton BadBoy | Zebra G | F.P.R. semi-flex), Pilot Falcon EF, Penkala Vintage 14k semi-flex, Pilot Parallel (2.4 | 3.8 | 6.0)

I'm still looking for help/data/supporters/sponsors for my Ink Database - It already contains over 900 Inks but is still low on data about the inks except on the Inks I got myself or where I found nice data sheets. So Im looking for these: InkSamples mailed to me, Permissions to use InkReviews - preferable by people who have a lot of InkReviews online, InkReviews mailed to me so I can scan them, Sponsors that will help me to finance InkSamples, People willing to trade InkSamples (list of available Inks from me is available via PM request - please include available Inks)

Maybe the Ghenkis Kahn ink is a shading ink? I've yet to try this brand, so I may give them a go.

bardiir, your ink website is truly incredible.

There's still a lot of missing inks but it's a LOT of work indexing the ink reviews or doing reviews of the inks itself. I'm indexing inks that I own with my own reviews directly. But yes, I hope that this will help some people choose inks who are looking for specific behavior inks or similar colors. But I'll open a separate thread about that once I feel it's ready for primetime, until then I'm just using it for testing purposes myself and everyone who comes to notice it is surely welcome to use/test too :)

 

What it will not be able to do however is find a substitute for the Gregor Mendel ink, that was quite unique and I'm a bit sad it's getting discontinued, behavior was great and a green pigmented ink.

I really like Oscar's Copper, a nice alternative to brown or burgundy.
