Here we go - this tine I'll try to present Stipula Calamo line. I must say I like these inks.
To be honest I don't really like Stipula fountain pens design. I've tried Passaporto and it wasn't good fountain pen. However their inks are really nice and they all have good properties.
I like the bottle
and I like the content
I hope you'll enjoy my presentation. So the contestants are:
BLU DELLA ROBBIA (Deep Blue): subtle and delicate shade of blue. Normally I enjoy heavily saturated inks but I like this one.
BORGOGNA (Dark Red): decent red, not really original or unique but nice nevertheless.
NERO (Black): black wanna-be but it's not black. More of dark blue-black. I hate black ink so it's not surprising I don't like Nero
TERRA DI SIENA (Sepia): one of nicest browns I know. Love it.
VERDE MUSCHIATO (Musk Green): most interesting Stipula ink. It has unique color. Of course it can be compared to Burma Road Brown, Hakodate Gagome or Join or Die Sepia but it's not really the same. It rocks.
ZAFFERANO (Saffron): my personal favourite. Unhappily it's not really good ink. You have to choose good and pen to enjoy it. In most pens it looks boring and weak.
Ok, let's check some scans and photos.
