Sorry about the differences, there's no way to know what color settings folks are using when they scan.

As I compared the images from different sellers, some that looked dull in the first images I posted looked absolutely amazing in others.

 

There are also some nice colors from the previous series as well, but many of the inks are discontinued so I'll just choose a few from the remainder that look intriguing. I'll order them on January 1 or as soon as this thread seems to have died. =P

As soon as payday comes I'll order samples of all the inks suggested in this thread.

Thanks for your patience!

Here we go!

First up will be 11-6 (no. 132) which had the most votes...it's a funky swampy green color.

Very fun thread. I spent a month in Shanghai for work a couple years back and had my Chinese colleagues utilize Taobao and Tmall for various items. The shipping times (often delivered by courier to the office 24 hours later) was amazing! I'll be following along!

Wow, has is already been two years?! My apologies to those who have been waiting for more Penbbs ink reviews. Life got busy, but I have been using the inks. I have another 5 or 6 reviews ready to scan and will keep working through the sample vials.

 

Out of the about 15 Penbbs inks I've tried so far, all have been excellent. Penbbs offers many unique colors (approaching 400 inks by now!) that are vibrant and have caused no issues in my pens. Although still mostly unavailable outside of China due to Chinese shipping policies, Penbbs has done a great service to the Chinese pen community by providing a wide array of excellent inks for a fraction of the price (in China) of even the less expensive Western manufacturers like Herbin and Diamine. 

 

Stay tuned for more reviews coming soon!
