  1. Hello, This is a first and a mini review. To me personally the colour, shading and sensation are important. Yet, I can forgive many things, if the ink has that ​je ne said quoi factor. In preparing this review, I appreciated many times more, the work of so many reviewers, that I've enjoyed over the years, thank you. From what I understand Red Cashmere, in its powdered form, was the genesis of Black Stone inks, in Australia. I was intrigued by this ink, thinking it would be a nice sheening variation, albeit darker version of Rouge Hematite, but cheaper. My sample came from fountainfeder
  2. A little over a month ago I finally managed to get my hands on a small bottle of Blackstone Barrister Blue Black - an ink I'd been wanting ever since I first saw it come on the market. The new formulation of Barrister Blue (for which I've just posted a review, see https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/346668-blackstone-barrister-blue-permanent-ink-new-formulation/) is a lovely ink, but almost leans turquoise. I really liked the old Blue formulation (and still have a nearly full bottle of it), so was sad to see it discontinued / replaced - and wondered whether this might make for a
  3. Nearly 3 years ago I wrote a review for the newly-produced Blackstone Barrister Blue Ink - part of a new line of permanent inks made in Australia (you can find that review at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/311074-blackstone-barrister-blue-permanent-ink/). It was (and remains) a favourite of mine: a dark, strong blue that wrote well and stayed written no matter how much water you threw at the page! My recollection is that Kevin (the proprietor of Blackstone Inks and Just Write Pens) was not entirely happy with the ink, though - because whereas his black ink relied on a nano-p
  4. A bit over a month ago now (I think) I placed an order with Kevin from Just Write Pens (www.justwrite.com.au), and with my order received a sample vial of his latest 'Blackstone' branded ink. I've held off on publishing a review until now, because it didn't appear to be have been released yet - but I understand it's now available through Anderson Pens (and others?) in the US. Due to supply issues (of nalgene bottles) the ink is not yet available in Australia, but I'm hoping that will be rectified soon - I'm keen to order a bottle! Like Barrister Black, Barrister Blue is a 'permanent' ink -

    Blackstone Lights Red

    Australian ink manufacturer, Blackstone Inks, recently released its latest suite: Blackstone Lights, a range of inks designed to appeal to those who prefer less saturated inks than their standard fare. I've been following Blackstone's progress since it released its first inks a few years ago, and have had the opportunity to test some of their inks before they were released to the market. This time around, I didn't see the inks till they were up on the JustWrite.com.au website - and I immediately placed an order for four of them. The proprietors kindly sent me bottles of the two inks I chose

    Blackstone Lights Orange

    The 'Blackstone Lights' are a new range of 6 inks (thus far) from Blackstone Inks / JustWrite Pens. As the name suggests, these inks are designed to be lighter and less saturated than the inks the company is becoming well known for - though some of them are still quite vibrant in their own right. Blackstone Lights Orange is a good example of what I'm talking about - along with the green and blue inks, it's quite bright and cheery. Add to that its wetness and flow, and you have the makings of a really good ink. Won't bore you with additional details - here's a photo, taken in full sunli

    Blackstone Lights Violet

    This is the second in a series of reviews, looking at the Blackstone Lights inks that were released in recent weeks. If you're familiar with Blackstone you'll know that their previous ranges of inks were highly saturated inks with bold, strong colours. This range was designed to appeal to those who prefer their inks lighter, and/or brighter, and generally less saturated. It certainly succeeds in that aim - especially with their Violet colour, which is the most delicate / least saturated in the range. Kevin from JustWrite.com.au very kindly included a bottle of this ink with my order - I

    Blackstone Lights Green

    This is my third review of a new range of inks manufactured by Blackstone Inks, and distributed through JustWrite Pens - based in Blackstone, Qld. When I saw these on the JustWrite website, I placed an order for 4 of them - Kevin, the 'brains trust' of the operation, kindly sent me the other two so I could check out the complete set. Blackstone Lights Green is one of the four inks I ordered and paid for - and it's already rocketing to the top of my list of favourites. If you're familiar with the inks produced by Blackstone in the past, you'll know that they're mostly highly saturated, smoo

    Blackstone Lights Blue

    A couple of weeks ago, while trawling the internet for pens and inks, I discovered that Blackstone Inks have come out with a new range of inks. Their "Colours of Australia" and "Scents of Australia" collections feature intensely coloured, highly saturated inks, some of which (mostly the blues!) produce a fair degree of sheening. The "Lights" range is designed to cater to the tastes of those who prefer their inks to be less saturated - but with smooth flow and reliable performance. I immediately placed an order for four of the colours (Blue, Green, Orange and Red) - and Kevin, the brains

    Blackstone Red Kunzea (Scented)

    This is the fourth of five reviews I'll be posting today and tomorrow, for one of six new inks about to be available from Just Write Pens / Blackstone Inks - so I'll keep it brief! The 'Scents of Australia' inks are made from similar components to the already-available 'Colours of Australia' line, and share their properties, with one key difference: all six inks are scented, with odours evocative of the Australian 'aromascape'. Here's a visual of the bottles that arrived last week (minus Australian Bush): http://i.imgur.com/LE5ZB3E.jpg Red Kunzea is formulated to resemble th

    Byron Bay Blue

    I wanted to fill my new pen with ink, and wanted to use a Blackstone Colours of Australia ink. However, Sydney Harbour Blue was too dreary, and Barrier Reef Blue was a bit bright, so I made a blend of the two. Herewith, for your delectation... Recipe: Blackstone Sydney Harbour Blue : 1 part Blackstone Barrier Reef Blue : 2 parts And now, for extra sheen -- As is usual for my images, click on them for a full size view. PS, the smudge in the first image, between and above 'my' and 'new' is some chocolate chip cookie that made its way to the back of the paper...

    My second CRV ever. Thank you, amberleadavis! I'm glad I got to see so many inks. I had never seen any of them on paper in person.

    Blackstone Australian Bush

    It seems Blackstone inks are a product of FPN - their origin can be traced back to 2013 when some of ink-testers (Amberlea minions) started discussng powdered inks. Soon after many of us had a chance to review / try the original SuSeMai powdered inks. The powders are gone but in the meantime they evolved into Blackstone ink concentrates and recently the line called Colours of Australia was created (based on those concentrates). Recently new colors were added to Blackstone lineup. Mishka from BureauDirect sent me samples. Thank you I'll start with Australian Bush as it displays

    Blackstone Cmyk Inks - Black

    This post rounds out my review of the newest four inks to be commercially released by Blackstone Inks - a 4-pack of mixable "primary" colours. Black is the least interesting of the lot - for the obvious reason that it's black. It doesn't have any "special" qualities such as waterproofness - it's designed to mix with the other inks in the range, rather than to serve as a stand-alone ink. That said, this is a very "honest", well-performing ink. It's a "pure" black that washes out to produce a grey colour, and (depending on the pen) tends to dry as a "grey-black" rather than a straight blac

    Blackstone Cmyk Inks - Cyan

    A few weeks ago now, I noticed that the folks at JustWrite Pens / Blackstone Inks had released a new line of mixable inks - available in 30 ml dropper bottles. The four base colours - cyan, magenta, yellow and black - are sold together, at this stage they're not available for individual purchase. I purchased a Mixing Kit (which includes the four inks, plus vials, bottles, syringes etc) with my own funds, and have not been compensated in any way for this series of reviews. I do receive sample and prototype inks and pens from JustWrite/Blackstone from time to time, but I didn't get a preview

    Blackstone Cmyk Inks - Magenta

    This is my second review in the new line of Blackstone CMYK Fountain Pen line of inks, that are designed for mixing - and to date it's probably my favourite (unmixed, i.e. base) ink in the range. Magenta is a strong, reddish-pink colour that's clearly visible on the page. It's a smooth, lubricated ink that's very well behaved in the pen and on the page. For more information on the ink range, and full disclaimers (I bought these inks with my own money!), see my earlier review of the Cyan ink at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/327635-blackstone-cmyk-inks-cyan/ - or you can che

    Blackstone Cmyk Inks - Yellow

    This is the 3rd of 4 inks that make up the Blackstone CMYK Ink kit - designed so you can mix your own custom colours. At the moment I'm just reviewing the 4 base colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)... Maybe later I'll mix some custom colours and post on the 'Inky Recipes' forum (?). Yellow is the least usable of the base colour inks - for obvious reasons. I'd call this a 'pure' yellow, as compared with the stronger, slightly orange yellows I've compared it to (Blakcstone Golden Wattle and Diamine Sunshine Yellow). I'm sure it'll mix in a treat with the other colours - just don't e

    Blackstone Inks

    I think this ink was labelled as super secret something or other. It's a powdered ink from Australia as far as I know. I was very kindly given an email address that I sent a begging email to for a powdered ink by the name of Red Cashmere which had the most incredible sheen and a beautiful deep red colour, but I got not response. I was just wondering if there was any news on this new to the market ink producer?

    Scents Of Australia

    Scents of Australia Blackstone Inks have released a set of inks called Scents of Australia. FPN member Jamerelbe has already done a set of reviews on them, as has member Lgsoltek, so I thought I would do a comparative review, between the six inks, and a couple of others for comparison. The six inks are Australian Bush (khaki green), Blue Gum (dark teal blue), Blue Cypress (greeny blue), Red Kunzea (red), Wild Orange (orange) and Brown Boronia (brown). The scents are floral, but apart from the Wild Orange (which has a citrus-y smell) I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the other scents. The
