  1. Sailor Style Dee Delta “Water City” Sonezaki Toutou (Sonezaki Orange) Recently one of our Japanese FPN members pointed out some Sailor bespoke inks from a shop called STYLE DEE in Osaka with a brand called DELTA Original Ink. I was confused because there is also an Italian pen maker called Delta with a few inks available. But these are real Sailor inks. The inks seem to go along with an inexpensive demonstrator pen ¥4,300, and unfortunately I didn’t put one in my shopping cart. There were originally four inks, based on the seasons of Osaka. “Water City” Umeda Yasei (Umeda Night Blue, a deep
  2. Nearly everyone know of Sailor, the Japanese pen and and ink company. Perhaps almost as many people have heard of Bungubox, often just called Bungbox here in the US, the Japanese stationary, pen, and ink shop in Hamamatsu, Japan. Here is a nice google map for you to locate it when you travel to this area of Japan to see the Hamamatsu Castle. https://www.google.com/maps/place/BUNGUBOX/@34.7061243,137.7291498,13z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x97450230eab367e4!8m2!3d34.7061243!4d137.7291498 The have an extensive line of inks made for them by Sailor, and during the craze for Sailor Japanese stor

    Diamine Marigold

    An inky friend sent this sample a while back and now I've gotten to a review. This is from the Diamine Flowers set, which seems to be difficult to find now in the US. Anderson seems to have this ink in small bottles. Several UK sites seem to sell 30 ml refills, so if this is an ink you like, it is possible to get more. The ink didn't do well in my Edison Premiere, while not feeling dry, the flow wasn't good enough to get decent color. I'd have to slow down my writing to do so. In a Pelikan with a broad nib, that few of my inks can tame, this one fit the bill. I got a rich orange line. So t
  4. You may have gathered from the title that I am not that fussed on Edelstein's Mandarin. When I first saw it I thought, 'Oh, a truly popping orange', but that thought was rapidly replaced with a retina burning headache. I tend to like reds and oranges, but I like them to have a little subtlety about them and not quite 'true' in their colour spectrum (if that makes sense). Iro's Yu-yake, the Fuyu-gaki, Noodler's Apache Sunset, couple of the Diamine oranges, Herbin's Orange Indien; you get the idea, I like reds and oranges. Mandarin seemed like a great choice, but in a very short time I grew to t

    Kyo-Iro Higashiyama Moonlight

    Another of the inks from the Kyoto TAG company, now also carried by Vanness in the US. I'd call this ink an earth orange color, and a number of existing reviews say the ink is "dry". I didn't find that to be the case. I don't know if there have been formulation changes or simply a different pen. Pen: Edison Premiere (M-steel) Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory. Camera: iPhone 7 The shading on Tomoe River was especially nice.
  6. It's time for another Ink Giveaway PIF! I am giving away a nearly full bottle of J. Herbin Orange Indien ink. This ink is similar to the OMAS Orange I gave away in an earlier PIF, but is a little less saturated. Here are the rules: 1) United States only. 2) Winners of my previous PIFs (Levenger and OMAS inks) are not eligible for this PIF. 3) Everyone who posts on this thread saying they want the ink through Tuesday, January 3, 2017 is eligible. 4) On January 4, 2017 I'll post here to close the PIF and everyone ahead of me in the thread will be entered. I'll select a winner using

    Lamy - Copper Orange

    Lamy - Copper Orange was released some time ago in 2015 as a part of the Copper Orange Special Edition Lamy Al-Star fountain pen. I have reviewed all of the standard line of Lamy inks on my blog earlier this year, but with this particular colour I catch up recently thanks to Mishka from BureauDirect, UK (thanks) who sent me a box of sample cartridges. Despite the fact that this is a special edition ink and sooner or later it will extinct, but it is still available here and there, so I decided to test it my way because I found it very interesting. The colour of Lamy - Copper Orange is as name s
  8. My guess is that Cult Pens has quite a cult following in the UK. They apparently stock nearly everything they can get their hands on in the way of pens of all kinds, many inks. I have a feeling that if I spent much time on their website I'd end up with a fairly expensive cart of booty. Well they have Cult Pens ink made by Diamine. These are the "Deep Dark" inks, and they are not rebranded standard Diamine inks. The Deep Dark Brown has been rated by those in the know as the closest to the long-discontinued Parker Penman Mocha. But I personally could never justify to myself to order just a coupl

    Kwzi Orange

    OK, I've posted enough reviews about KWZ inks you'd think I was Polish. I'm American, but my ancestors (great grandparents or earlier) were from somewhere in Poland, though my grandparents always claimed they were German. So perhaps this is why I'm so attracted to these inks, or maybe it's because they typically have very good handling qualities and are very good colors. Orange was not a color that interested me for the longest time. I thought it might be naturally too bright. I prefer browns, blues, murky greens. But orange can be nice and I've found a few that I like. KWZ Orange is a relat
  10. My eyes! My eyes! OMG my eyes! It burns!!! Aggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!! If you like retina-searing orange inks, you'll love this ink. This ink is really bright, almost fluorescent. The handling was perfectly fine on the paper I used. I think Anderson Pens carries this brand in the US, which originates from Australia. This is not a color I would ever use, but if you have a need for a great markup ink, this one will fit the bill. I was so traumatized by this ink that I was only able to use one page for review and could not bring myself to do the rest of the review. I know I'm not worthy like Vis

    Kwzi Grapefruit

    Here is an ink nearly everyone can buy! KWZ Grapefruit is a brilliant, bright reddish-orange. It is fabulous as a markup color. It's a very deep orange. The handling is excellent. The color is really beautiful. But you have to like these bright colors. For me their use is fine occasionally, but I'm not a regular user of such colors. But I would still recommend it. Totally not water resistant at all however. The usual papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet.

    Kwzi Monarch (Fontoplumo)

    Well, every now and then there are LE inks reasonably available to normal folks. The Fontoplumo pen shop in The Netherlands has a custom Conid fountain pen, and KWZ was commissioned to create an ink matching the color of this pen. The shipping for this ink to the US was fairly expensive, so I joined with a few like-minded ink fanatics to obtain this ink. I believe visvamitra and LGsoltek have both provided reviews as the ink is more readily available in the EU, however their results were quite different. So there was some consternation regarding what kind of ink we would receive. The ink is
  13. Hi Everyone, This is just a quick comparison I made of two shading orange inks: Super5 Delhi and Noodler's Apache Sunset. I was surprised at how similar they can look and the shading with both is impressive. The huge advantage, for some at least, of Delhi is that it's completely waterproof once dry! If you've been hoping for a waterproof version of Apache Sunset, Super5 Delhi may be close enough to fit the bill. My only complaint with Delhi as far as behavior goes is that it left pink stains in my TWSBI demonstrator that I still haven't been able to get out. Here's what these two oranges
  14. We hope everyone is having a great summer so far. Here in Arizona we are on the cusp of the monsoon season where we have hot, sunny temperatures mixed with dark clouds, and lightning filled thunderstorms. You can be getting sunburned one minute, and drenched in rain the next. It makes for some beautiful scenery and once you experience it, you will never forget it. This yearly seasonal weather pattern has inspired our latest experiment in pen-making. We have been experimenting for a while with different materials and finishes and have come up with some pretty cool results. This new pen repr

    Columbus Arancione (Orange)

    About a year ago I spent some time working in Turin and every day, along the usual journey from home to the workplace, I catched a glimpse to a stationery shop window which had this unknown brand of inks : Columbus. Afterwards, I discovered that Columbus is an Italian pen manufacturer, part of the Santara group, which is also the Italian distributor for Ballograph and Sheaffer. I was kinda attracted by the brand, because it’s actually one of the few that sells orange ink in a standard ink line (a Pelikan-ish 30ml bottle costs around 5€ ). http://s11.postimg.org/5f2c5ye2b/OVERVIEW.jpg Orang
  16. Some time last year Kingdom Note came out with two new lineups of bespoke inks from Sailor. They were the "Jellyfish" and "Crustaceans" lines and these pretty much replaced their previous collections of "Wild Birds," "Mushrooms," and "Insects". This was at a time when obtaining these Sailor inks became difficult for even those living in Japan. Some stores discontinued selling online, or even began limiting purchasers to just one or two bottles of ink, and another chose to raise prices over 100%. Kingdom Note is not one of those stores, but availability of their inks has been quite limited, a

  18. This is a review of the Bung Box (Sailor) color Fresh Oranges of Lake Hamana. Papers: This review was done on HP 32 pound Prem. Laser paper, printed using a laser printer. I also include writing and printing samples on Tomoe River cream and white, and Rhodia white dot pad. Pens: TWSBI 580 (orange) with a Medium nib. Pilot Metropolitan with a Medium Plumix Italic nib. Esterbrook J with a Esterbrook 9788-M nib This review includes both scans and photo. Observations about interaction of nibs and ink: The TWSBI wrote nice and wet with this ink. It was darker with little shading in a we
  19. The wonderful and widely known Diamine Autumn Oak. This ink depends HEAVILY on the pen and nib as to how it looks. To me, it reads as a much more "mature" Noodler's Apache Sunset. I absolutely adore this ink and will be buying it when I have the chance to do so! Flow: 8 Lubrication: Written says 6, but I would change to 5. It is a very watery ink and as such the flow is very good but the lubrication is fairly low. Dry Time: 25-30s on Tomoe River paper. Shading: 10! Bleedthrough: None Ghosting: Not too bad. Color: Written says 7, change it to 8. Overall: 7 - I absolutely adore the shading and

    Mr Oster's Amazing Inks

    I first noticed Robert Oster's ink on ebay and wasn't too sure about it. Then I saw someone here had taken the plunge before me and the ink seemed good, so I took the plunge and contacted him. Customer service was truly excellent; he always responded very promptly and politely and was very helpful. I got seven inks in one package by ordering directly from him. I can't give a full picture review here as all my photographs are too big, so I have a picture of a comparison sheet below, after my thoughts. Moss Green: Very nice green with a slight grey aspect. Quite dark and a genuine 'moss' colour.

    Sailor – Hachimitsu (Honey)

    http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0618.jpg First, I'd like to curse thank fireant for sending me a sample of this wonderful ink. Alas, it is discontinued or I'd buy a bottle today. It likely wouldn't spend much time in my pen, but I'd put it to good use sketching and it is wonderful straight out of the bottle for pointed pen calligraphy. Here's an overworked persimmon. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0612.jpg Sailor Hachimitsu and Cigar on Strathmore watercolor paper. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ
