I know nothing of it sticking around, as a regular issue. Others have come and gone like Amethyst. All I got from that is 3 six packs.
I like Topaz most.
Have I tried my bottle of Aquamarine?????? *****.................I shook my six pack tin, and it's empty enough to rattle, so I had used Aquamarine.
And I'm off to buy a bottle of Smoky Quartz.....
I am over where I shouldn't be...here.....seeing inks I have, inks I don't.
....going to buy 3 Kaweco shading inks too, when I get to my B&W.
Sigh....could be a sheen ink from Diamine also....now that's a lot of ink to dither about.
**** I am striving to get down to 5-6 pens inked...to use more ink, instead of 17....down to 11. Some 'new' old ink (MB Diamond) got me from 10 to 11.
I had to start using that in I have 1 1/2 bottles of it and no desire to take the QE2 anywhere.
Some of the 'Buy Now' prices could have me here asking what is a substituent for certain older LE inks.
German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
