Humble as opposed to the epic comparos found here! Still, might be of use to someone.

 

  • Paper: HP laser 32lb, which is as nice as I read it would be.

 

  • Iroshizuku fuyu gaki in Platinum Cool M nib.
  • J Herbin orange indien in Parker sonnet with a beat up F nib. Deserves a better home.
  • Pelikan Edelstein mandarin in Lamy Vista M nib.
  • Diamine poppy red in Muji F nib.
  • J Herbin 1670 rouge hematite in Lamy Vista F nib (over flowing with crud but hey, it flows). It looks darker and less red than on clairefontaine paper, more tyrian purple than blood.

 

Colours look faithful at least on a macbook pro retina 13 except for Mandarin.

Mandarin looks more like this:

They are all distinct from each other and beautiful; I was worried fuyu gaki might be pink which I can't stand but it's definitely an orange with red undertones.

THank you.  I love comparisons.


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