Dear FPN friends

 

The great Stephen brown, the David Attenborough of Fountain Pen Documentaries, would porbably say....

 

It is Time for an other SHOOT OUT!!!

 

But since no one can equal the excellence of SBRE Brown I write. :notworthy1:

 

It's time for another Allied Forces

 

De Atramentis Khaki - J. Herbin Lie de The

Bottles Nice but nothing fancy....

 

But  i do not care about that.

 

If you urinate (water in) a Crystal Bottle.... the bottle is beautiful.... but the contents still stink :)

 

Outer beauty dissapears in due time.. Inner beauty stays...

Colours look pretty similar. DA is more yellowish an earth or soil brown. Herbin has more red I guess it is a darker brown.

 

Look at the difference in the nib sizes

Well I think those colours are beautiful and a bit a like too

Both inks shade :D

 

Flow in both inks is superb. The De Atramentis is a bit quicker drying... 

 

Waterproof this chapter goes to Herbin which can withstand an occasional drop of water

 

No feathering in both inks  :)

 

The other colours used

 

Black = Kaweco black

 

Yellow = DA Document yellow

Black in Flag is  DA Document Black

Blue in Flag = DA Document Blue

Written Blue = Herbin 1670 blue

 

Entschuldigung für die Sauhaufen beim erste Versuch der Deutsche Flagge. Just apologized for making such a Mess in the German flag.

 

several of the above mentioned ink I have extensively reviewed before

 

Conclusion

 

I have reviewed the Khaki extensively before

http://www.fountainp...ramentis-khaki/

 

Good old Visamitra  has a nice habit of making excellent reviews. He most recently published a review of Herbin Lie de The

 

I kindly invite you to read that review.... Is is awesome as all Visamitra's review are

 

 

I both inks..... Very well behaving, shading and beautiful colours. Alike but still different.

 

 

Happy to have them both  :)

 

Regards Peter

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)

Great stuff! Thank you.

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