    New Blackstone Scented Inks

    Coming May 2017 The fountain pen experience is much more than simply putting a pen to paper. The right pen, the right paper, the right ink and the right environment can all combine to create an incredibly enjoyable and uplifting experience. Sometimes the unpleasant smell of some fountain pen inks can detract from this experience so we've created a range of scented inks to add a new dimension to the fountain pen experience. We've chosen a selection of uniquely Australian scents and tested them thoroughly to ensure the scents do not interfere with the free flowing and well behaved charact

    Blackstone Ink In Plastic Pouches

    We've had a lot of requests to 'bring back the pouches' and package Blackstone Ink in them. We received a lot of feedback and comments when we first introduced ink in plastic pouches and we've taken a lot of this into account this time. We received a lot of positive comments about the environmentally friendly aspects of the pouches but the major criticism we received was that the cost savings did not override the extra time and effort involved in decanting the pouches and that the pouches were difficult to decant with the spout in the centre. We've addressed both these issues this time. Ou

    Toucan Black

    For the sake of providing a (fairly) comprehensive overview of the Toucan range of inks, here is Toucan Black. I already had two other black inks when I purchased this one - Noodler's X-Feather and Diamine Jet Black; I subsequently gave the latter away. I use Noodler's X-Feather by preference - I live in mortal fear of smudging my hand-written notes (especially work-related ones) so the 'bulletproof' nature of the Noodler's ink provides a massive reassurance factor. That said, there are times when a non-permanent black ink is not only acceptable but desirable - for example, when my 11-year

    Toucan Scarlet Ink

    Just when I thought I'd finished reviewing the Toucan range of inks, I've discovered an extra colour! More to the point, when the JustWrite company began stocking the Toucan ink range in 30ml bottles as well as pouches, they decided to make the entire range available - including the one colour they'd decided NOT to distribute at the outset. I think the review will make it obvious why the JustWrite crew didn't consider it worth selling BOTH Crimson AND Scarlet - they're very similar - but as a lover of red inks I'm more than happy to have both in my arsenal. The crimson is probably the 't

    Toucan Royal Blue Ink

    When I decided to review a few of my preferred inks in the Toucan range, I wasn't going to bother with this one - the first time I trialled it (about 4 months ago?) I was seriously unimpressed. To unsaturated, and too 'bluey-green', to be called a 'Royal' blue. I wasn't a great fan of the Bright Blue either, though, till someone suggested I try it in a Noodler's pen - and suddenly I discovered I was dealing with a different ink. So I thought it was worth revisiting the 'Royal' Blue - and I wasn't disappointed. It's still not my favourite ink - as you'll see in the comparisons, the three bl

    Toucan Sienna Ink

    Of all the inks produced by Tintex for their Toucan range, this would probably have to be the most striking - though for whatever reason it's not one I find regularly in my rotation. A dark, 'burnt orange' kind of colour, that varies considerably in shade depending on the wetness of the pen, the thickness of the line etc. Hardly surprising that it's one of their better sellers. Have 'migrated' from my Sony phone camera to a Sony camera - hopefully the photographic image will be a little sharper, and truer to the colour... (p.s. Please forgive the typo - I *know* Sheaffer should be spelt

    Toucan Primrose (Yellow) Ink

    For the sake of completeness - and not out of any kind of love for this shade of ink! - here is Toucan Primrose. It's the palest of inks in the range, legible but just barely (and again, only using the wettest of pens). If you love yellow inks, this may well be right up your alley - and I will make no prejudgments as to your sanity! Like the rest of the inks in this range, Primrose is very well-behaved on reasonable quality paper - I did, unfortunately, smear this in a few places, but in my defense it was a little hard to see where the ink was and wasn't on the page!! It's a little pale

    Toucan Umber Ink

    This is post #9 in my series of reviews on the Toucan ink range - produced by Tintex, a.k.a. Dye Manufacturers of Australia. These inks are available (as of yesterday) either in a plastic pouches (30 or 60 ml) or in 30 ml glass bottles from the distributor - though it looks like the larger (400 ml) pouches are no longer on offer (see www.justwrite.com.au for details). I've had a difficult time trying to describe this ink - as you'll see in the images below. It's definitely not a reddish-brown, nor is it yellow-ish; I'd call it 'muddy' but that might sound like an insult; while 'chocolate'

    Toucan Violet Ink

    Toucan Violet - the third-last in the range (not sure whether I'll bother with #14). The review below may seem a bit harsh - but honestly, the only thing I don't love about this ink is its colour (!). It's well-behaved, reasonably saturated, washes well out of my pens... I just, well, prefer a more 'brightly coloured' purple (or violet). The ink in the Platinum Preppy (see sample) is just about perfect for me - this colour seems 'flatter' by comparison. That said, Toucan Violet is a 'legitimate' colour in its own right - it reminds me of the flowers on a spray of lavender. You know t

    Toucan Gold Ink

    The Toucan ink with the most auspicious sounding name - but sadly not the most auspicious looking ink. Sitting somewhere between orange and yellow (I suspect it's a combination of the two), it's dark enough to be legible - just barely - but wouldn't make for the most comfortable reading. You'll notice I've deliberately used wetter pens to get a darker, more visible line (especially the Noodler's Nib Creaper) - but still it's not the most saturated of inks!! This scan probably does the ink some favours - it's a little lighter in real life - but I think it gives a reasonable impression of th
