    Sailor Manyo Ume - A Lazy Review

    Wetness: I'd say moderate. Bleed-through: None that I could see. Feathering: None that I could see. Shading: Plenty, even along very thin lines of ink. Sheen: None that I could see. Water resistance: Very good. Legible grey marks remain after prolonged soaking. The colour that gets lifted off the page upon contact with water can end up making the general area quite pink, but the grey marks will stand out against it. The red that washes off Sailor Manyo Ume isn't quite as staining as the blue in Sailor Manyo Chigaya. Overall: I like it as a sheen-free alternative to Sail

  3. Another one of eight new ink colours Sailor introduced in the second release of its “overseas exclusive” Manyo line of inks. Close-up: Colour: dark khaki / olive / murky green Flow: moderate Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper, looking closely at the thinnest hatching lines, and words/glyphs ‘reverse-written’ with the nib upside-down (i.e. the bottom of the feed facing up) Show-through: Low to nil Bleed-through: Not observed Drying time: 18–20 seconds Smudging after fully dry: Didn't happe
  4. Montblanc Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition 146 Petit Prince and Planet EF “Je suis un jardinier” ~ For several months Fountain Pen Network has been unavailable in the area where I work and live. In order to post this thread with images, it has been necessary to send them to a trusted friend in Africa, who has logged into FPN as me. After he uploads this post, I'm uncertain if I'll be able to see it or see any comments posted because FPN remains inaccessible here. On an overcast afternoon of intense rain, which was the Qingming (Tomb Sweeping) National Holiday, I visited the

    Sailor Manyo Chigaya - A Lazy Review

    Sailor has doubled the number of ink colours in its Manyo line of inks recently, by adding another eight in the second half of 2020, after first introducing the product line in 2019. I don't have any of the first eight, but with COVID inspiring all that panic buying, and a significant discount on offer for pre-orders for the new colours, I ordered the four relatively more subdued and/or sombre ones; and, after much delay, they finally arrived. Chigaya, which is probably the most sombre looking of the lot, was the first bottle I opened. (When I was developing the chromatography strip for

    Diamine Reddit 2020 : Here We Go Again...

    Ok... I was surprised that this isn't a thread already here even though the post in reddit is 8 days old. (maybe I missed it in the FPN, in that case consider this thread obsolete). https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/en0y35/2020_diamine_reddit_ink_preliminary_round/ Time to load up your preference for the colors ladies & gentlemen. I want a really deep dark red (darker than the Cult Pens) but in the same color palette as the Oxblood. The poll will stay up for 2 weeks if I'm not wrong.
  7. Hey guys! After almost a year of waiting, i finally received my grail pen i ordered back in August 2019, the conid bulkfiller regular! I made a video going over what came with my order, some of the available accessories and some general comments on the quality of the pen and how it writes. I made it to provide some insight into how Conid's quality has changed since their order stoppage, and to show you guys waiting on your open orders or are keen on ordering one when they reopen orders, what you can expect from the company! You can find my unboxing at this video link! Thanks so much g
  8. Hello dear FPNers, Today I have something new, something German, something menthol green for you: Moctezuma 1 Pierced Sky is one of the most recent inks released by Montblanc. This ink is a complementary part of new Patron of the Art series: Homage to Moctezuma 1. It is a limited edition ink, and it has a 50 ml cube shaped bottle, which is a pretty standard bottle shape of Montblanc. I suppose this ink is very close to J. Herbin Vert Reseda, but a tad darker than it. Another similar ink is Edelstein Jade. Unfortunately, I have neither of them, because this cannot be called as my
