Concise, minimalistic presentation, useful for comparison.

Text is laconic somehow poetic never ever negative. Tactful.

I've been following his ink presentations for a year. One ink every day. 654 inks till now. Many Sailor LEs.

Does have a search engine.

You can use google translation.

Thanks to both of them, if they read me. I really enjoy their work.

 

David.

The Hatena Blog's have a lot.

And seeing the category, seems to be balanced in number of Japan and foreign inks despite the many Sailor colours.

Indeed. And all the reviews I have seen show the inks very close to the reality. Excellent blog.

Well, the latter author is, in fact, a member of fpn. If you figure out his or hers 'mark' it's obvious.

I had bookmarked the first blog already (who knows how I got to find it)

and I'm a follower of the tweeter, but on Instagram, but for the life of me I cannot recall their username now.

Love both of these people's work. They do a great service to the fountain pen ink collector community.

If only I could figure out proper names for some of those "exotic" to my area inks and get some bottles, it'd be great.  For example I like both the blue and red-brown here: https://twitter.com/...812667686219776


“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

A suggestion: copy paste the Japanese hashtags in Google. For instance, copy-pasting "銀座蔦屋書店" gave me Ginza Tsutaya Book Store.  And "カキモリ" gave me "Kakimori" which was more puzzling, so I googled "Kakimori ink" for more precise results.

This isn't a precise method because some hashtags are the names of the inks, so results may vary from insects to statues, from writers to pictures of bridges.

What a great site. Fun, informative, and addictive. Just a little sad that so many of those are absolutely unavailable.
