I love your fallout shootouts. It does make me want to try one of these two inks.

The shoot outs are awesome. Thank you again.

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

White Ice on to of a famous European Mountain.  The limited edition thing.  Where the competition can not win outright the prestige will win thumbs down.  Thanks for the shootout.

Somehow I missed this thread before now.  I find that I actually prefer Stone of Gion, since it seems to be darker (and therefore more legible) on the page.  But I suspect that in reality I need neither -- I have 2 bottles of the somewhat similarly hued Edelstein Smoky Quartz, and one or two bottles of Iroshizuku Yuma-guri.
