    TAG Kyoto - kyo-no-oto yamabukiiro

    TAG Kyoto – kyo-no-oto – yamabukiiro TAG is a stationery shop in Kyoto (Japan) that produces some interesting soft watercolour-style inks. With the kyo-no-oto series they produce a line of inks that replicates traditional Japanese dye colours. According to available online info, the manufacturing process of the kyo-no-oto inks follows traditional dying techniques dating back to the Heian era between the years 794 and 1185. The inks come in 40 ml bottles, packaged in luxurious thick paper with a texture that feels like heavy watercolour paper. For this
  2. I love the in-between-ness of the tertiaries; they're complex, blended, impure, not one thing, nor t'other. Those yellow-oranges, red-oranges, red-purples, blue-purples, blue-greens, and yellow-greens. So all you ink lovers out there who love the tertiary colors: let's hear / see your favorites in the in-between ranges. Here are the colors I have loaded in pens at the moment:
  3. The Custom 823 pens have always been highly captivating demonstrators from Pilot Corporation (Japan), sporting the second largest nib (Pilot#15, Namiki#20 nibsize), with a vacuum plunger filling mechanism. The model number 823 refers to the price and year, of launch, although in a slightly intricate manner. Since this pen was released in the year of 2000, 82 years after the company’s inception (i.e. 1918), it carries the first two digits of the model number as ‘82’ and the last digit which is ‘3’ refers to it launch price of JPY 30,000 (3 X 10,000). Also replicated the content with additiona
  4. Hello again to all my FPN friends, One of the interesting things for me about this hobby is how easily and suddenly my preferences for a particular design or color can change. I never use yellow for anything other than highlighting and previously would have thought something like a yellow pen to be tasteless or just plain weird. Then I saw these: WingSung 601 LE (Photo courtesy of Frankunderwater) Penbbs 308 Mango Yellow After seeing these beauties, something in my head snapped and I knew I must have an audacious and bold yellow pen! Sadly, the WS is a limited edition with an inconve

    J. Herbin - Ambre De Birmanie

    I am seriously in love with this ink. It will be in my daily carry pen for a while. Or at least until my bottle of Shin-kai arrives. This ink loves a dip pen, too. Forgive my heavy-handed example above, but perhaps you can see the promise. In better hands, this would be remarkable dipped. Sketch was done with Ambre de Birmanie, J. Herbin Bouton d'Or (the most useless ink I've ever put in a pen) and a touch of Iroshizuku Shin-kai. Not a success but that is hopefully more my total lack of experience with these three inks than anything else. I still have hope. Reasonable care was taken to ens

    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
  9. I had bought the m200 cognac with its stock Italic nib to replace my old rotring ArtPen. I have to simultaneously admit that the only reason for going with an Italic and somewhat flexible nib was to try it out and learn something new. Below is a link to the review on my blog: Pelikan M200 Cognac Review So here it goes. The cognac was launched last year as a special edition and the dazzling golden hues allured me. These were quite vibrant compared to the earlier tones of a lighter Amber demo. DESIGN - LET’S DRINK TO THAT (5/6) The m200 cognac shimmers in honey gold and its golden loops
  10. I recently bought a Stipula Etruria and I am having difficulty filling it. I tried an international converter but this does not fit. Neither did an international (short) cartridge. The problem seams to be that the barrel is too narrow inside. I notice that the barrel has metal threading way up. You can just see this in the photo below. I have read here about converters and removable pistons. Can anybody explain what I need to do? This Etruria does not have the piston nob. It has gold trim and it has an 18K nib. I have attached a few photos if that helps.
  11. Does anyone know anything about this pen, how it writes, how it feels? It looks like a wonderfully made pen but I'm new to FP's so my knowege is quite limited. I've ordered a 316 since for the most part, peoiple enjoy how it writes. So now Im curious about the brand and this pen in particular. It looks like a great pen for 27 CAD. Thanks!
  12. My fellow FPNers, I need some quick advice on my next ink. I want it to be lighter than brown - in color but not intensity. I use a MB toffee brown, sailor red grenade (both dark shades) and I am currently looking for a lighter shade [in red spectrum]. I use Fine to Medium (both Asian & European) nibbed pens + a few italic ones Could short list a few inks: (Want to go for a orangish - amber shade) 1) Pelikan Edelstein Amber 2) Diamine Orange 3) Diamine Amber (Does it lack intensity) 4) Sailor Apricot (A few old pieces might be left with my old shop) 5) J. Herbin Orange Indien I am
  13. Evening all, I am getting two new bottles of ink (Diamine Apple Glory and the 150th Diamine Anniversary Blue Velvet) for Christmas so I only thought it right to get one new pen to put my favourite of the two in! (got the Rohrer and Klingner glass dip pen for the other ink!) There are four (relatively inexpensive) pens I am looking at to take up the next berth in my collection. The Pilot Vanishing Point in the Blue Carbonesque finish, the Lamy 2000 and a Waterman Carene in either the amber finish or the Blue Obsession colour. To give you an idea of my preferences I currently have a bla

    What's The Deal With The 51's Amber Jewel?

    Hi all, I've already got a Parker 51 which I enjoy using very much. I was looking at the amber jewel that I've seen on some of the 51s and wanted to know if the amber jewel signified anything in particular, or was it's placement purely for aesthetics? Thanks, Badger

    Diamine Amber Mini Review

    Just a quick one... I have a thing for yellow-orange shading inks even though they're not useful for most of my writing. This one is no good (well, illegible) in anything other than a really wet writer (or flex pen). No water resistance, flows almost too readily (drips out of some pens) but lovely warm colour and cleans up well.

    The Edelstein Question ?

    Hello. Hope all are well. Not sure if I should be here or Inky Thoughts. Anyway. I purchased th Pelikan Edelstein Amber 2013 Ink of the Year and was wondering what others who may have bought this ink think of it ? I primarily bought it for two reasons: Edelstein's inks reputation for quality and it being Ink of the Year. I know: petty reason...To be honest, this ink was so-so and didn't do much for me. Yes, it wrote well, was saturated, good shading, etc...If anyone would like to share their experience with me and others, it would be greatly appreciated...Thanks again, LeRoy
