  1. Has anyone had the problem with Perle Noire turning grayish in colour? I have my Lamy Safari 1.1mm stubb inked up with J herbins Perle Noire. After the initial inking when the feed is swimming in ink, the colour put on the page is a very deep rich black with absolutely no shading whatsoever. After a few pages the colour seemingly turns grayish with some shading. It's no longer the deep black black black like I was expecting. It's not a flow problem I'm pretty sure because the nib glides across the page. The ink is just less saturated than what I was expecting. Has anyone experienced
  2. I'm surprised that I never posted this review. OOPS. Generally, I don't use black or gray inks. Because Tyler at Organics Studio sent inks for the Fade Olympics, I inked up my pens and started doodling to get the OS inks in the window. Alas, not all the inks made it into the 2013 line up, but they will appear in the 2014 windows. Anyway, this gray ink is wonderful. Depending on the paper, I saw more shading. The color is a keeper. So, here are my doodles. http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/Inklings/slides/2013-Ink_611.jpg And here is how it reacts to water. http://sheismy
  3. I know there's already been a superb comparison of green that included these three inks, but I wanted to add my own -- since the reviews of Zhivago seem so variable, from "just black" to an obvious green. Clearly Zhivago is greener that Graphite but not as green as Evergreen. Colour laid down is not far from the "fresh" evergreen before it lightens over 24 hours. I have tried diluting Zhivago. It does not make the ink any greener; the end result is something even closer to Graphite, though a tad greener. And ye gods, Noodler's ink smells.

    Organics Studio Arsenic Gray

    Here's another newer ink that hasn't got a lot of color samples online yet. It's a nice gray color on the cool end of gray. Good wet flow. Some water resistance. No misbehaving. Dries pretty quick. I've been trying to decide whether to get Albert Einstein ink from Montblanc in a full bottle. I got a sample through some magical series of events, and tried it. I was wanting to see if I would like this one better. Honestly, I like them both. Einstein is a more neutral gray than this one. Sadly, it looks like I'm going to have to get both.
  5. http://yoonhalee.com/images-inks/diamine-pr-blue.png This looks more blue-black than blue-gray on a more absorbent paper, like the cardstock I was using earlier but didn't think to scan/photograph. On Clairefontaine, this is pretty much what you get. I wish it were one of the more colorful blues, but I can't fault how well-behaved it is in this pen.
  6. Hi FPN, Recently I'm thinking of using an FP + gray ink to replace mechanical pencils in taking lecture notes. I need to keep the ink gray in order to distinguish "in-lecture" notes from post-lecture additional notes, yet the lack of permanence of pencil lead is getting on my nerves, so I'm wondering if FP + gray ink is a suitable substitute with this purpose in mind. Mostly my notes will be in the form of annotations on printed powerpoint slides as opposed to sheets and sheets of writing. I'm wondering which of the inks mentioned in the title, when written from a Pilot fine nib (there's
