Thank you! I have this on my very short list of inks I must try out. I'm a fine-pointer myself and all the big wet swath reviews do me little good, so know that this is one of my favorite subjects.

Dear Liz

 

Today I purchased an MB146 EF. It's all your fault. Hope you're happy :D

Glad my reviews are helping!  And Salamander should be on everyone's "must have" list. :)

Wow!  Talk about going "all in". :)  I hope you enjoy it immensely!  If so, then I'll be very happy. :)  Is a Montblanc EF really an EF? ;)

I believe so: http://www.fountainp...4326230<u> </u>

Fortunately I like beans and rice, which will necessarily be my diet for a month or two.

:)  That does indeed look EF.

 

I guess if you can't afford to eat anything other than beans and rice, you won't be splurging on this:

Thank you for the fine review. This must be one of my favourite Diamine inks. I don’t know of any other ink like it - well... given the multitude of inks out there, some surely must be close, but in my own collection I have nothing that can compare to this. Great stuff!

I love this ink - it's always in my M800 Brown Tortoise F nib.

And I came up with the name for it!

HUZZAH!

Are you saying you work for Diamine?  (Or had some influence that allowed you to name Salamander?)  Either way, well-named!

Murky needs, indeed   :D

 

Great review as usual. Unusual colour.....

I hoping it's not water resistance, so that I won't be even tempted ;)

Vive le murk! :P

 

I've never seen anyone claim it has water resistance, so I didn't bother to test it.  From how easily it cleans up, I doubt there's much, if any.

No I don't work for them but I have some some simple reviews of some of their inks over the years. They sent me a 'pilot' bottle of Salamander - no name just a number - and invited me to try it out and come up with a name. Obviously, no money changed hands but I did get a bottle FOC!

Sweet!  Glad they did - love the name and the ink. :)

Interesting ink!

And instead of just complimenting the individual review... This morning while drinking coffee I realized "OMG It's Wednesday already and i forgot to check for Liz' review yesterday!". So, yeah, Tuesday is now Efnirday.
