    Ink Review: Monteverde Capri Blue

    Monteverde's revamped line of inks recently got my attention for their comprehensive lineup of clear, distinct hues, as well as good value. A 90ml bottle can be had for about $13-$15 USD from the better known online retailers in the United States, making it a very good deal. Monteverde touts their "ITF Technology". From Monteverde's promotional material, here's how it claims to benefit us writers: At my recent visit to the 2017 LA Pen Show, Monteverde gave a free bottle of Malibu Blue ink to all show attendees. A company representative had all their inks available for sampling with swabs, a

    Blue Inks With Green Sheen?

    Does anyone know of blue inks other than Kobe Midnight that also have green sheen?
  4. This is one of my all time favorite blue, and I always have several pens filled with it. I think I definitely love it more now than when I wrote the review, which was over a year ago. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/673/CkHYfi.jpg I do have to note, of the three bottles I have, two of them are exactly the same, but the third has a major violet shift, which I feel is even out of Nathan's regular range of making every bottle unique. It's still an awesome ink, just more violet than the other two bottles.
  5. Hi everybody... This is the second round of give-away for BRIL ROYAL BLUE I have 5 ink bottles (Plastic) - 25 ml filled with Bril Royal Blue.

  6. Ink Sampler and Review for Dr. Ph Martin’s Ocean Edge Blue fountain pen ink: Background: Dr. Ph. Martin's artist products are manufactured by Salis International, founded in 1934. Ben Salis, the founder's son, began to work for his family's business in 1936, at the age of 16. That year, in the height of the Great Depression, he was paid just $1 per week. Ben Salis was given the honorific title of "Dr. Martin" after he invented many graphics and color products, and obtained several design patents. Although he was not a real doctor, products with the trade n

    Ink Review : Bril Royal Blue

    I have stocked up lot of inks, especially inks like Chelpark, Camlin, Bril and Sulekha. All these are region specific like Chelpark is easily available in North India and Bril's availability is limited to Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai, and Sulekha only available in Kolkatta that too few colors against 11 colors listed on webpage and lastly Camlin is available pan India. The review is about the Bril Royal Blue Ink, which happens to be my first ink review. And before I go further I would really like to thank Visvamitra and Lgsoltek, whose ink reviews I personally like a lot and is the ins
  8. Can anyone recommend any saturated inks with good flow? I know mostly inks are either saturated and quite viscous, or very well flowing and much more wishy washy. I'm looking for saturated inks which also have good flow and and relatively easy to clean/ not damaging to fountain pens. The only one that comes close to me is Iroshizuku Take- Sumi, but I'm sure there must be an even darker black ink, which is still well behaved. Any recommendations? If they have good shading even better.

    Ink Review: Kaweco Royal Blue

    This is Kaweco Royal Blue ink. I used it when I was reviewing the ART Sport Lapis because the ink goes nicely with that pen. My Lapis wrote straight out of the box when fitted with the Royal Blue cartridge. I had no problems with hard starting or skipping. The flow was great from the start. I also found this ink lubricated the nib very well. It's a quick drying ink, but it doesn't feel dry to write with. This ink isn't waterproof, but is quite water resistant. It doesn't stain fingers. Royal Blue is a really attractive green shade that compares well against many popular similar royal blue ty

  12. In the past six months I've been on an acquisition spree of OMAS pens (which is good timing considering the possible trouble the company's in nowadays), and with the three old-style Paragons came three different colors of ink: the Arco Verde came with OMAS Green; the Bronze Arco came with OMAS Blue, the darker, old version***, apparently; and the Burlwood model came with OMAS brown. So far OMAS Blue is by far my favorite of the three. ***this is based on internet research speculation and a video by the Goblets explaining the difference between old and new.
  13. My latest ink is Diamine Aster from the Flowers Set. I decided I should try to complete reviewing the Flower set inks, as I have reviewed all of the Music set inks. I find the Flowers set consists of more brightly coloured inks, whereas the Music set are more muted. So sometimes I'm in the mood to write with brightly coloured inks rather than muted inks. I decided to use Diamine Mediterranean Blue, Sheaffer Skrip Washable Blue (old bottle) and Waterman Florida Blue (now Serenity Blue) as my comparison inks this time. I chose these inks as they tend to be regular, everyday blue inks. I might h

  15. Anyone have some experience with this ink? I can get it relatively cheap but cannot find any info on it. I would really like to know how it performs, mostly regarding bleedtrough and feathering on copy paper. Thank you for any help in advance. http://fpgeeks.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.png The ink in question is this http://www.lacouronneducomte.nl/webstore/main/images/graf_inkbottle_all.jpg
  16. I have a certain sensitivity to some cosmetics with the blue color. Using a blue toothpaste, for example, gets my face all red and somewhat flaky. Few weeks ago I got a bottle of Diamine Sargasso Blue and I noticed the same symptoms! I write for long times, several pages, 10 to 15 pages, twice per week (well, it looks a lot to me!). I'll go to the dermatologist this week. But may I ask in advance: has any of you had a similar experience? If it is really a sensitivity to some component that would be a little sad, since I like this ink pretty much, even though it bleeds a lot in my cheap papers!
  17. Pelikan’s Royal Battle Battle of the Blue Kings The old king vs. the new Royal Dear FPN friends, Last week I saw two reviews of Pelikan Royal Blue coming by in the Ink review forum. An old one started in 2010 (the first link) and a recent one (the second link) https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/167834-pelikan-4001-royal-blue/ https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/263912-pelikan-4001-royal-blue/ This gave me an Idea, since I have two bottles of Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue. An old bottle which is NINETEEN years old and a new one I recently ob
  18. This is my review of Diamine Mediterranean Blue. I decided to try a sample of this ink because one of my correspondents used it in a letter to me and I thought it was a very pretty blue. When I first wrote with it I thought it didn't come across as a particularly saturated ink and I expected it to look more saturated, especially as the pen has been filled with it for several days before I wrote with it. My Waterman Phileas has a replacement 18ct gold L'Etalon M nib fitted into it, and that was the only pen I filled with this ink I don't think it's going to look significantly different with a
  19. Hi all: After a long search for a darkish red ink, I have decided to try out a 30 ml bottle of Diamine Oxblood. It looks wonderful. I now need to find the perfect blue ink but the sheer volume is CRUSHING so I am asking for a bit of help. Can anyone who has gone thought a number of blue inks and found one they really like make a reccomendation I can follow up on? I tend to use pens that are on the big side and write with medium or broad nibs, mostly steel. Paper is Rhoda but I want to try others. My writing is all print and I take fast notes so i do not forget what clients tell me. (I
  20. Here's the first review I wrote after my wife and I moved into our house. It's a nice, soft blue, but too expensive for the performance, methinks. Still a very nice ink though. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/537/YykEos.jpg
  21. Here's one of the better inks in the 1 oz. Eternal series of Noodler's inks. It's soft and slightly chalky, but looks great on Rhodia. Definitely recommended! http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/901/VFJH2O.jpg

    Sailor Souten

    Here is a quick review of Sailor Souten. I mainly wanted to show off its lovely sheen that I have been greatly enjoying on Tomoe River paper. So far I have had great behavior with this ink in each pen, nib, and paper combo I have tired. However, to get the fantastic sheen you really need Tomoe River to do it full justice!

    Edelstein Sapphire Blue

    I received an email from Fahrney's Pens advertising new Edelstein long catridges. Upon checking the Fahrney's site, http://www.fahrneyspens.com/Item--i-363266S?src=WP200714SENTTOEL&utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=Inhouse&utm_campaign=140710, I found the option for Edelstein Sapphire Blue. Since I had purchased a lot of Parker Penman Blue Sapphire ink before it became impossible to find and since I have been using Private Reserve American Blue catridges for the travel needs of my pens taking international size cartridges, I have not tried Edelstein Sapphire
  24. Here's a saturated blue that's sadly not unique enough to strike my fancy. While its behavior on copy paper leaves me disappointed, it's very good on Rhodia, if a bit unremarkable. Being the sheen junkie that I am I'd rather find a comparable color with lots of sheen from Diamine than spend the money on Ottoman Azure. Still, there are far worse inks you could get. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/18/fdnx.jpg Please remember to vote on this ink in the poll!
  25. The University of Reading (UK) displayed Samuel Beckett's drafts for his novel Murphy and ephemeral papers from some of his theatre productions. The manuscript on display consisted of six notebooks of approximately A5 size (they were slightly smaller). On the right hand side he had written his script which consisted of single spaced text in blue fountain pen ink (looked like Parker's Quink, but it is 86 years old). He had crossed out and edited the text in black ink. It looked like a broad/thick medium nib. On the left hand page, he hadn't continued with the draft, but put doodles of gol
