Just got an email that www.birminghampens.com / Brimingham inks are half price. Not a bad deal.

Didn't notice the sale being mentioned here yet, but have seen some interest lately in their inks.

Excellent deal, wish I'd have noticed it earlier, as literally all the colors I wanted are now sold out.

Drat.  Truss Blue is (of COURSE) one of the sold out colors....  :angry: 

Glad I picked up Waterfront Dusk and USS Requin Navy Blue the last time I was in the store.

Truss Blue was among the inks I got too, along with Waterfront Dusk.  But I'm most looking forward to Turquoise, Alternator Crimson, and Fern Moss.  I wish I'd gotten their sampler before this sale, so it'd have been easier to pick out the shades, as some I was conflicted on, and I probably skipped some inks that I should have gotten.

My order of inks just came in, and--maybe because I got so many--a free Bullow (Jinhao X750) pen was included in a very nice matte black.  It has a surprisingly springy/flexy Bullow-engraved nib compared to two of my Jinhao X750 nibs that are super-strength nails, and a good looking upgraded converter with a ball agitator!  What a nice touch for Birmingham to include the pen.
