    Ink Review - Krishna Yellow Valley

    KRISHNA YELLOW VALLEY The review is simultaneously posted at my blog here : LINK Krishna Yellow Valley In Indian Fountain Pen industry or Circles, Dr. Sreekumar is quite known for his hand-turned fountain pens and almost 20 types of nib tuning. However recently he has shelved in to making fountain pen inks under the brand name of KRISHNA. These inks are sold on eBay India Page for Rs. 550 (8 USD) each for 5 Nos. 30 ml ink bottle plus shipping. Now they come in new glass bottles. Krishna Ink – New Glass Bottle The inks that are being produced have now increased to 35 nos. and even certain names have changed. Krishna Inks – 35 Colors The new names are as follows: Pencil Neelambal Dark Chocolate Purple Lake Blue Vivid violet Sapphire Ruby Monsoon Sky Pink Barleria Summer Rain Silent Night Sky Bronze Leaf Wild Cherry Pumpkin Nilwanti Cool Breeze Gold Rush Orange Crush After Dark Yellow Valley Glory Vine Dark Rose Magic Blue Orchard Lily Writer’s Night Peacock Neelkurinhi Emerald Mangal Dew Leaf Njaval Meadow Green Ghat Green Officer’s Blue Black I would like to thank Dr. Sreekumar for sending me the samples and also for the effort that he has put in seeing the limited resources at his disposal. This review is about YELLOW VALLEY ink from KRISHNA. The colour is really beautiful and I actually like these kind of greens. The ink drying are better than previous inks, it dries within 30 to 32 seconds and is to be note that bold point nib was used to check drying times. However one issue with this ink is that there is an issue with nib crud if left for longer period unattended for more than a week or so. INK SPLASH Krishna Yellow Valley – Ink Splash on JK Cedar 100 gsm I love the colour of this ink. Its kinda murky green which I like. Ink has no sheen and does not feathers. DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Krishna Yellow Valley – Ink Drop on Paper Towel COLOUR MATCH Krishna Yellow Valley – Colour Range WRITING SAMPLES Krishna Yellow Valley – Writing Sample on JK Cedar 100 gsm Krishna Yellow Valley– Writing Sample on JK Cedar 100 gsm – Angled View As you can see from the above writing samples the ink has shading property and it shows most in stub nibs. And ink is very legible even in the fine Japanese nibs. INK SWABS & SCRIBBLE Krishna Yellow Valley– Ink Passes on JK Cedar - 100 gsm Krishna Yellow Valley – Ink Swab on Jk Cedar - 100 gsm Krishna Yellow Valley –Scribble on JK Cedar -100 gsm WATERPROOF TEST Krishna Yellow Valley – Waterproof Test The ink leaves just a bit of colour when rubbed with water and you can see the that it is still very much legible after water rub test and thus I can say it is has water resistant properties. INK DRYING TIMES Krishna Yellow Valley– Ink Drying Times BLOW UP WRITING SAMPLES Krishna Yellow Valley – Blow up Writing Sample on JK Cedar 100 gsm Krishna Yellow Valley – Blow up Writing Sample on JK Cedar 100 gsm - Angled View COMPARATIVE WITH SIMILAR COLORS Bronze Leaf vs Yellow Valley vs Ghat Green vs Meadow Green vs Goldrush CONCLUSION: I like the colour. The ink has good flow and is nominally lubricated. Dry times are still high but please note that I used the Bold wet nib for drying test. The beauty of the ink is that it is water resistant. But yes there is a bit problem with nib Creep if not used for long. Following are the summation of ink properties: Feathering : NoSheen : NoShading : ModerateLubrication : ModerateFlow : GoodWater Resistance : GoodDrying Times : Little HighNib Creep : YesClogging : NoneOdor : None Feedback and Comments are welcome. The ink can be bought from the ebay store of Krishna Pens. Link is given below. LINK TO EBAY STORE : KRISHNAPENS
  2. Several months ago there was a thread (which I can't find right now) about the release of De Atramentis Bookworm ink: a muddy green ink that smells of old books. *sigh*. I hunted high and low all over the world for this ink but couldn't find a stockist. In the end I asked the great people at larrypost.com.au (no affiliation, just a satisfied customer) if they could get me some and they promised to add it to their next order. Well it has arrived and my 3 bottles are on their way. So if you're in the antipodes, love the smell of old books and like green ink, head over to the good people at larrypost.com.au and get some before I buy it all!
  3. Here's a quick review of some Parker Penman Emerald cartridges I had laying around for years. It's a beautiful, rich ink. Even though there are plenty of alternatives these days,I wish they'd bring back the Penman series.
  4. Citizens of the United States don't invest a lot of time thinking about the shade of green ink used to print their currency. Go ahead, pull one out of your wallet, we'll wait. If you're not an American citizen and still hold U.S. currency in your wallet, well, thank you for the loan. You probably don't think much about ink shades on your currency, either. (Unless you're from Norway. In that case, congratulations, kroner are the most aesthetically gorgeous currency designs on our planet, and pretty darn solid, too.) A close examination of a U.S. paper note actually reveals two shades of green ink. On the front side of a U.S. $1 bill, the serial number on the left and the seal of the Department of the Treasury on the right are printed in a bright, jewel-like shade of green. The back side, however, is printed in an entirely different, swampy, blackish green. U.S. dollars are not the most attractive of currencies, but they certainly bear a consistent, reliable, comforting shade of black-green. Who do you think supplies that black-green ink to the U.S. Treasury? Or the color-shifting black-to-green ink featured on newer, pricier U.S. currency notes? You have no idea, and neither do I, and there are good reasons for that. My bet, though, is that it is not Nathan Tardif of Noodler's Ink, who has an entire line of inks that mock the U.S. Federal Reserve, and it's not Diamine, either. Diamine is British, and it would be pretty silly for the U.S. Treasury to outsource one of the key ingredients in the stability of its currency to a bunch of limeys. Nothing against the British, but we doubt if the British government asks Yankee crackers for help with its currency, either. Which brings us to the subject of this review, which is a British fountain pen ink called Diamine Emerald Green. This ink warrants a couple of American observations. First, it's much more vegetal than jewel-like. It's more like the back side of a U.S. dollar note than the front. To use other great green American icons, Diamine Emerald Green is more like sequoia trees, National Parks, and the U.S. Forest Service than it is like the navigational signs on U.S. interstate highways. It is definitely not like the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz. Another observation: this ink dries blazingly fast. On a sheet of Hewlett-Packard 32-pound laserjet paper, it's totally dry in 4 seconds. If you're left-handed, or if you're one of the members of the British secret service who supposedly write spy notes in green ink, you should really consider Diamine Emerald Green. It won't besmirch your hands and will save you oodles of time. Also, it doesn't do any of that fickle color-shifting sheeny stuff. And, last observation, it's an unbelievably well-behaved, polite, reserved, modest ink; exhibiting virtually no bleedthrough or showthrough at all. The holder of a fountain-pen-wielding member of the green-ink brigade who writes crazy conspiracy-theory letters to British newspaper editors could well imagine the ink saying, "Dry now, sir. We certainly want to ensure that you can fit many more words on the other side of your paper. If that's all, sir, I will make tea."

  5. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Magical Forest. This ink is emerald green ink with a great silver sheen My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the bottle to mix the particles through the ink before filling your pen. They also recommend that you gently agitate your pen to mix the particles with the ink in your pen when starting a new writing session. I recommend good FP maintenance when using ink that contains particles. I suggest you clean your pens out a little more frequently than you might do with normal ink. These inks will come in 50ml glass bottles, and they have either gold or silver particles in them.
  6. My latest ink is Diamine Ultra Green. This is a bright 'grassy' type of green. It's very nicely balanced shade, not too much yellow and not too much blue. This one is brighter and lighter than Delamere Green and is very slightly less yellow than Woodland Green. I filled my Pilot CH 92 with it over a week ago, but because it has a F nib, I have always found it a hard starting pen. It soon overcame that and wrote very well with Ultra Green. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink but it shows there is some water resistance.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a F nib, this ink took 12-15 secs to dry.It flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. Once I got the pen going I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or cartridges.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.

    Ink Review: Diamine Emerald

    This is my review of Diamine Emerald ink I decided to try a sample of this ink after I wrote my review of J Herbin 1670 Anniversary ink Emerald of Chivor. The 2 inks are quite different though. It just goes to show different interpretations of what shade Emerald is. As usual for a Diamine ink, it's a well behaved ink. It's reasonably saturated and shows a little shading, more so with the round M nib. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the Kaweco 1.1 stub or the Reform M that I used. This ink exhibits no showthrough and no bleedthrough on my thick Xerox ColorPrint paper. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink, but there is a bit of water resistance.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a 1.1 and a M nib, this ink only took 5-10 secs to dry. That's very quick on this smooth paper.It flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or cartridges.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.
  8. Here's one of my favorite obscure inks. It's such an odd color. I'm pretty sure my parents have a can opener from the 1970s that is this color… http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/538/Yocqgu.jpg

This is my first review of a Pelikan Edelstein ink. I am a Pelkian Fan of both the inks and the pens. The Edelstein ink is a case of Pimp-my-Ink.... What is that??? Well there are certain Companies that produce several line of inks. They every now and then put a special line of inks on the market. For example Faber Castell vs Graf von Faber CastellPelikan 4001 vs Pelikan EdelsteinInk of the year etc... Like J Herbin's What are the differences Fancy packiging(slightly) changed recipeother coloursmore saturationand of course a HIGHER PRICENot every point will be aplicable on any ink but just to give you an Idea of the possibilities Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine This is an example of a Pimp-my-Ink ink. The ink comes in a beautiful bottle for €13,95 at La Couronne du Comte Generally I can say that the ink behaves very well like all the Pelikans I have tested so far http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Pelikan%20edelstein%20Aventurine/Scan_Pic0004_zpshkpvco0h.jpg Handwritten sample on Clairefontaine Veloutè 90 gr.

I will give you some adresses here La Couronne du Comte I guess Dennis and Rik would even travel to the moon to get it for you (just pay them a million or 2 ) Well it is safe to say that they do almost everything to satisfy their customers http://www.lacouronneducomte Bankers have Rothshield Ink lovers have The Goulet Pen Company. Rachel and Brian carry theALMOST largest assortiment of ink on earth and it's near surroundings http://www.gouletpens.com (almost Dear Amberlea Davis carries the largest assoritment in the universe but is not a seller To Conclude Pelikan did a nice job on this ink.... Nice colour, beautiful bottle, well behaving and the price is not too expensive (in my opinion). Edelstein ink costs € 0,28 per ml. vs € 0,9 for a Pelikan 4001 ink. Is the Pelikan Edelstein ink that much better than Pelikan 4001? In my opinion not.... Wiil this keep me from buing other Edelstein inks.. ... DEFINATELY NOT Regards Peter
  10. Yet again we get to travel to the land of Japan and experience wonderful inks. This Kingdom Note ink came by way of secret methods of forwarders. This ink was on my "must have" list and I am not disappointed. This Kingdom Note ink is part of their "Flora and Fauna" sets based on the critters and plants of Japan. Actually I don't think they've done anything based on plants, so they perhaps decided on fungi instead. This ink is from the Insect group of inks, and created after the insect of the same name. I think they've captured the color fairly well from what I can see on the net. A nice muted yellow-green, maybe like green olive oil but darker obviously. On many of the pics, the ink seems too dark compared to reality. The ink is really a mid-tone. But they weren't able to capture the sound of the Evening cicada for us in ink, so we rely on this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuiqDQLBNuc On Mohawk via Linen. Closeup of the same. On Hammermill 28lb Inkjet paper. Closeup of the same: A sample on Tomoe River paper. I never seem to get much sheen, maybe it's my nibs all being medium. The iPhone picked up the text on the next page. That's the ghosting you see. Next time I'll have to put a sheet of paper between them. Waterfastness Test on Inkjet paper The ink is not terribly waterfast. There is a good loss of color, but some does remain to allow recovery of the text.
  11. If you can find it, try it. Just be warned that you'll lose years of your life trying to pronounce the ink's name… Thanks to Amberleadavis for providing this ink for review a few years back! http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/2884x3674q50/540/Zo5Ssa.jpg
  12. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's a bit old. Still a great ink though! http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/913/XQv830.jpg

    Part of me really hates reviewing a discontinued ink, because if you fall in love with it, you can’t get it. But, I was sent this ink by a Twitter friend to add to the my next round of epic ink testing and it seemed like a shame not to write a review while it was in my pen, so please forgive me for teasing you with a no longer available ink. This ink another one of those that’s kinda ugly at first, but then you fall for it because it is complex and quite beautiful once you get past the initial color shock. I thought that it was quite similar to Diamine Salamander, but when I look at that review I see that they aren’t really that close in color at all. The similarity is in the fact that they are both green-browns, which doesn’t sound appealing at all but I seem to really enjoy those colors. As you can see, this ink shades nicely. It’s a fairly unoffensive shade of green that I think could be good for everyday use. My only gripe is that it seemed to dry quite quickly on my nib, such that if I paused while writing I would have to go over my first few letters twice to really get the ink flowing again. Otherwise, no troubles with feathering or bleeding. This ink was also somewhat water resistant, which was nice because I would have been very sad to lose my swamp monster doodle forever. It also played nicely on all the papers I tried, though it did smear a bit when highlighted (I make sure to wait a few minutes so that the ink is totally dry before highlighting, sometimes even a full day). At the end of the day, I just can’t recommend this ink because, as I said before, it is discontinued. I managed to find it on Amazon, but otherwise had little luck and to me it seems silly to hunt down discontinued inks, even if you love them. Sure, you can build up a stockpile, but why not find a new favorite ink that’s currently in production? Anyway, after perusing the Swab Shop at Goulet Pens, I think that you could probably find a similar color in either Diamine Evergreen or Noodler’s Sequoia, both of which can be purchased without much fuss and are a good deal cheaper than trying to find the Sailor ink. This ink was provided for the purpose of review and I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions above are my own and you are free to disagree with them if you like.

  15. Dear FPN friends. I hereby review an Ink of the much loved J Herbin company... Olive Green. I did this review in a bit of a different way than I usually do. Tributes I pay a tribute to Visamitra, American Poet Walt Witman and Austrian writer Stefan Zweig.... It was Visamitra who brought me to the Idea of paying these Tributes,,,, Visamitra posted a review of Organics Studio Walt Whitman a very nice green brown ink, As usual Visamitra did an EXCELLENT job here .... In my humble opinion that is worse a tribute ... Got you interested in this review.... here is the link... https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/273817-walt-whitman-leaves-of-grass-organics-studio/ Read it both the Ink and the review are utterly cool Zweig and Whitman Well How does Zweig and Whitman fit in here??? .Just in short,,,, Walt Whitman is a famous American writer and poet, I first read about him in a book By Dr Stefan Zweig... The world of Yesterday.... Read it it tells you a lot OF European History and Culture betwen let's say 1870 and 1942.... Easy to read and very informative.... Stefan Zweig tells a lot about Waltman here For those of You not interested I first inserted a Sampler form with the basic specs.... If I got you interested read the rest... Or take a sneek peak for a better Judgment of this beautiful ink.. The Review http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Herbin%20Vert%20d%20Olive/HerbinSampler_zps6db0488e.jpg Cool Ink or what??? Indepth Information on the Ink and Interesting Persons http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Herbin%20Vert%20d%20Olive/JHerbinVertdolive1_zps30204661.jpg COOOLLL thanks for your work Visamitra http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Herbin%20Vert%20d%20Olive/VertDolive2_zps05ebe22a.jpg Some more explaining http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Herbin%20Vert%20d%20Olive/vertdolive3_zpsf652246b.jpg Good old Walt http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Herbin%20Vert%20d%20Olive/Vertdolive4_zpsbb6fb276.jpg Some Poetry Too Conclude I absolutely love J Herbin, Herbin seems to be a synonym for shading I love this ink for it's good ´behaviour.... It is a jolly happy colour which truly reminds me of the Oive trees I see in France and Italy frequently.... Wow and that shading I do hope that I got you interested in some wonderful persons and some beautiful literature/poetry too lectorie salutem! Peter
  16. I've recently been looking for some nice shading purples and green inks. I would like them to shade in a fine nib, but if the colour is gorgeous enough, I would definitely consider getting an ink that would shade in say a medium or broad nib or a flex pen. I think that this would be the best place to go for some recommendations. Some requirements: 1. It must be well behaved. Excessive feathering is a no. 2. It must not stain white pens and should be easy to clean out. 3. If purple, I'm looking for something around the range of Waterman Purple or Scabiosa, nothing too blue. 4. If green, I'm not very picky but I would rather not go for R&K Alt Goldgrun. That colour doesn't appeal to me. 5. I may change my mind on the above if I can get some colour accurate pictures (not scans). I've only seen scans and ink swabs of the aforementioned inks. If I think of anything else, I'll edit it onto the original post and put it as a comment. When edited on to the original post, it will be marked with an asterisk.

    Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Green

    Pelikan 4001 Brillant Grün /Brilliant Green Dear FPN friends. Since I have various Pelikan 4001 inks who I like I will do reviews on them. The pelikan inks are classics and classy. Classy in quality but not in price. only €3,19 approx.$ 4.- for a quality ink this is a bargain. The Inks are dry which makes htem suitable for gusher pens. They are also very safe for old Fountain Pens. No wonder it was developed in the golden age of Fountain Pens. The ink matures very well as I have proofed in topic Battle of the Blue Kings in which I compared a nineteen year old bottle with a brand new one. (You can find this topic under both Ink Comparisons and Ink reviews.) Warning though it is dry,it takes some time to dry with an 1,5 italic nib. That's no wonder because the Lamy Joy is known for having severe Vomitus, the Llatin word doctors use for the forceful expulsion ofthe contents of ones stomach Saturation and darkness depends on the type of Nib you use. But the broader the nib, the higher the saturation I love this like I do my Pelikan M800. I will getting some more Pelikans and become an ornithologist I love birds my favourite one is the Pelikan (oh yeah and ducks too fried in the pan with cranberries) Down here are some of the technical specs (as suggested by Ann Finley 2007) points 1-5 1 = 5= Fountain Pens:Online best writer 0.8 italic: Lamy Joy 1,5 Italic Paper: Leonardo Ringbuch,average quality school note book made in Austria Drying time: Approx. 5 seconds with 0.8 nib or 20 seconds with 1,5 italic nib points 5/3 Flow: points: 5 Lubrication:dry but good points: 4 Bleeding: quite some on the average quality paper I used points: 3 Shading: superb in 1.5 italic points: 5 Waterproof: Still very legible after using a swab points: 4 Package: In nice classic bottles and cartridges points: 3-4 Availabilty: It is also available on Mars, just ask your Martian stationary store Quality: Well it's from germany so what do you guess points: 5 It really is a brilliant refreshng green. Excellent for junping out words in a normal text. One must love it especially for this kind of money Kindest Regards Peter Vlutters

  19. Hi, I have recently acquired few Deccan ebonite pens and i am looking for an ink for the green in the pic. I like matching the color of the inks to my pens. Which ink color would be good in this pen? I am not looking for a perfect match. Any shade which comes close would be great. This would be a daily use pen and i prefer inks which are wet.
