Well I'm not trying to be. If we feed the profiteers, they'll just keep doing it. I think we just need to be patient and the MB stores will get more. It might be a few weeks, but that just gives us more time to enjoy the inks and samples we already have. See win-win.  :)

 

Sorry, I thought you meant it tongue-in-cheek.  I agree with you in general, however supply and demand is a powerful thing.  And human impatience even more powerful  :)  One of the buyer pitfalls of online auctions is the assumption that, if it's on an auction site, it must be a good deal.   Erroneous, foolish but I'm sure we've all seen it.  And scarcity, or perceived scarcity, drives that car even faster.

Thank you for the comparison. It was informative.

I got tired of waiting for my local boutique to get it in so I ordered it from the Netherlands. If you waste, err I mean spend, enough shipping is free. With the strong dollar it was under $12 a bottle.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

My local Paradise Pen has two bottles left, $20/bottle. They are holding them for me until tomorrow. Do I need to send any to Las Vegas or anywhere else? I promise to not even include any bad lawyer jokes in the deal.....

 

 

You and Science Chick are awesome.

Awe shucks.  :blush:   It's not a problem ma'am.  The ink is paid for, I am picking it up tonight after work and will mail tomorrow if possible but Saturday for sure.  You ladies will be dripping in pink by Monday.

 

Oh my, now there's a picture I can't get out of my head. :wub:


I enjoy MB 146 pens, Sailor, Pilot and Platinum pens as well. I have a strong attraction to dark red and muted green ink, colors I dislike for everything but FP ink. I also enjoy practicing my handwriting and attempting to improve it. I love the feel of quality paper under a gold nib.

I'm staring at a big cart from Cult Pens, as our own enabler amberlea mentioned it to me and I found all SORTS of delicious things...

 

Oh well, may as well look.  What's the worst that can happen?   :)

Appelbloom. They offer 10% off for FPN. The price per unit drops after 3, 5 and 10 bottles. Free shipping on over 100 Euro.

MB is not included in the discounts. Wink wink.

I don't think that's a glare exactly, Lou.  I think your wallet is feeling bloated and imploring you to thin it down a bit.  :vbg:

Thanks for the fantastic review. Love that color. I called 3 MB boutiques today and they all seem to know nothing about it. The MB website says it not available.

That hasn't been possible since I bought the house... I've spent more at IKEA this year than I have on pens.

 

I have set myself a pen budget that keeps me honest.

I also called the MB website and the girl suggested I sign up for a restock notification email. She said I would know before her when it was in stock.   :unsure:

Thank you for this amazing review Cyber6! This ink is much more beautiful than I had even anticipated! Definitely moved from "want" to "must have asap" status! (You are such an inky enabler! lol)

 

I was wondering, could you please compare this with Diamine Deep Magenta, if you have it? DDM is a pink ink I have a sample of and was thinking of getting, but I want to see how it looks compared to MB Pink.

 

So far all my pink ink bottles are purple leaning (Cactus Fruit Eel, Emily Dickinson, etc) or pastel (J Herbin pinks)....I definitely need a bright PINK Pink Ink!  ;)

I just put in an order for a bottle of this with Anderson Pens since they have it in stock. If I end up really liking it I'll order another bottle or two when availability is a little more widespread.

Sorry, I do not have Deep Magenta... I would be very interested to see that comparison too... :)
