Quite a while back around August 2015 I worked on this review but apparently never finished it, nor posted it. So here it is! Even though I don't have an ink droplet image as the pen I just filled with this ink is an Edison Beaumont pneumatic filler, so kind of hard to do ink droplets.

 

The ink goes down a rich deep blue, then dries to a more muted blue. Some might dislike that effect and prefer the color when wet. There is lots of red sheen on Tomoe River paper.

 

Pen: Pelikan M400 (F), Edison Beaumont (M-steel)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory.

Camera: iPhone 7

I think Sandy or Cyber6 has a recipe of mixing this one with the other blue one in the mushroom series.

Wow, what a lovely blue-black -- looks serious but not imposing, very nice!

I think that was me - I mixed it with the other blue mushroom one (entoloma viricens, or something like that) and it makes a GORGEOUS blue.

Oh right, it must have been you. Sometimes I mix up you and Sandy, maybe because you all begin with an S, LOL.

Wow, what a nice color.  Of course I suppose this is one of those unobtanium inks.... :( 

Thanks for the review, anyway.  If I had known in advance, a friend of mine got invited to Japan for some TV show awhile back (he does all sorts of medieval Japanese stuff like woodworking and braiding and he got invited to be on the show and meet some masters in their respective fields.  And if I had known when he was going I could have said "So, if you have a bit of down time and are any of the following places... can you ask your interpreter to take you to the following shops and pick up some inks for me....  I'll pay you back...."

Well, I got this last year, so I can't say how available it's been since then. It hasn't been as available as some of the others of the "Fungi" series. But when these inks do appear "in stock" at Kingdom Note they're gone within a few days.

 

Oh, btw, I met someone in our village last year that actually has a P-51, the airplane. It's kept at the little aircraft museum in North Carolina.

White_Lotus, cool about the airplane.

 

This ink is one that I didn't think I'd enjoy, but my teenager is a total fan and I like it too.  So, now she swipes my pen... I'm going back to colors she doesn't like. Ha ha.

 

Thank you, White_Lotus for all that you.


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

You're welcome. It's my humble contribution to our inky insanity. But I've really fallen into a Sailor rabbit hole.
