Im thinking about purchasing some wancher inks as they look pretty interesting.

I love mixing inks for when i paint and i want to know if they are fountain pen friendly, and/or good for mixing with other inks.

Quite. All kinds of connotations, most of which would clog up your feed.

They are very good inks, I have the Imari Blue, Matcha Green and Ebine Violet.

They are very saturated and quite wet, though reasonably well behaved on lesser quality papers.

 

The backstory about the Silk Road association is quite interesting.

I have Matcha Green and the ink seems watery to me - out of a Pelikan it was a disaster. It isn't a bad colour (didn't do it for me) so if you like it pick your pen carefully.

a pilot metropolitan is my daily carry and i plan on buying a sailor 1911 profit as well as a wancher matt edition. I hear the wancher matt edition is as wet as a montblanc 149, but i havent heard much about the 1911 profit. do you know how it would take those?

I have the 1911 Long in a F nib - tried  it and  looks watery in that set up - so maybe you need a wider nib (metro in M should do it) with a dryish flow rate. Good luck

I've only had experience with the Asuka brown which I like quite a lot, the colour is close to Iroshzuku Yama-Guri. It is very well behaved in pens, has decent water and fading resistance and is reasonably priced, the only downside is a rather long drying time.
