Amazing comparison!  Thank you.  I really love the performance of the Stipula inks.  I prefer more vibrant inks, but these are really wonderful and worth the money.


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

Thanks again for this great review.  I felt very fortunate to try these inks out at the DC Supershow Ink Table a few years ago, as Stipula was good enough to bring their whole line and their unique Netto filling system (which looks like an expensive version of TWSBI's ink bottle filler).  I think most wouldn't give this ink brand a second look if it wasn't for their Verde Mustachio (see poll results above).  Other ink companies should take note that the standard line of rainbow colors isn't what attracts customers.

Please can someone tell me where this inks are available in Europe, preferably the Netherlands? My normal shops do not stock them.

 

I have seen some colours on amazon.co.uk for the ridiculous price of GBP35 or there abouts. and that is too much even for some very nice ink...

That would mean almost 45 EUR. for a bottle.

 

I am looking for the Verde Muschiato and the Terra di Sienna.

 

 

Thanks,

 

D.ick

Thank you for this very detailed and informative review.  It helped me finally make a decision on a few ink colors, including *just* the right green for a vintage green pen.  Now they'll be all matchy-matchy, in the nicest possible way.

 

Best,

Elle

I used the Nero for about a year, then fell out of love with black ink. It's nice and dark without much shading, but I think it's a green-black, not a blue-black.

Excellent comparison, thanks so much. One can always rely on you when researching inks. I am interested in Nero, Verde Muschiatto and Terra di Siena. Could you please comment on these in regard to wetness, lubrication and overall flow properties? For now I'm going to pick up only one and would hate to end up with one that won't flow to my liking (which is wet).

Thank you for kind words :) Terra di Siena is very nice ink, I'll soon review it (a bottle is on a way to me), Nero is decent black but not as good od smooth as for example Rohrer & Klingner Leipziger-Schwarz or J. Herbin's Perle Noire. Verde Muschiatto looks stunning and I remember that I enjoyed this ink, however I haven't written with it for more than two years so I don't recall things well. It's possible though, that the sample is on a way to me.

That's understandable, still I thank you for the reply. Perle Noire is a great benchmark for smoothness of an ink and I'm glad you mentioned it here. I will be on the lookout for your review of the Terra di Siena and possibly Verde Muschiatto. Subbed for notifications from your blog so shouldn't miss any of your new reviews from now on!
