    Kwz Baltic Memories

    KWZ Baltic Memories (Wspomnienie znad Baltyku) I must say I was very excited when I saw the announcement of new KWZ inks. I am a real fan of their inks, and they are one of my favorites. This is the first of those three new inks that I'll review. There are a number of positive things about this ink, and one fairly important negative. The color for this ink is really lovely. It's a green-leaning blue but quite dark, so not at all a bright teal. The shading I got with the Gate City Belmont was fabulous. There's supposed to be lots of sheen with this ink and it's true. It's sort of shiny and

    Sailor Style Dee Delta Horikawa Jade

    This is another of the Sailor shop-exclusive inks for the Style Dee shop in Japan. I'd bought a bottle of this earlier in the year, and wasn't sure if I was going to like it. But it turns out it's a favorite of the green-leaning blues. It really is like looking at the waters of the old Horikawa canal in Osaka. The text says it's a "jade green", but to me it's a very green-leaning blue, so folks might call it teal, but this isn't a very bright color. Still very pretty and nice. With various surcharges and shipping, it probably cost about $35/50 ml bottle. I think shipping to the US has gone u

    Akkerman #24 Zuiderpark Blue-Green

    I'd had this review for a while, but hadn't posted it. The ink is the Akkerman #24, Zuiderpark Blue-green, an unusual color right on the border between blue and green. I'd received a sample and decided to give it a try. The few Akkerman inks I have are quite good, though there is a rumor that they are repackaged Diamine ink. I don't know if Diamine has this color, I'm not well-versed on their range of inks. The Akkerman bottles are fantastic. If I remember correctly the ink behaved well. But it's difficult to decide whether the ink is blue or green. For this reason it was difficult to adjust

    Franklin-Christoph Midnight Emerald

    A while back Franklin-Christoph added some inks to their "special color" line. I'm not sure how the "special color" line relates to their "regular" line of inks. Their Midnight Emerald seems to be a darker version of the Emerald (bright green) ink. I tend to like murky greens, so I picked this one up a while back. The Midnight Emerald is a moderate valued, fairly pure green that leans strongly to blue. It's no where near as dark as Diamine Deep Dark Green or even F-C's own Loden, which is great. There's nothing really wrong with the handling, but the color is just not so interesting for me p

    Montblanc Blue Hour "twilight Blue"

    Montblanc is that famous pen manufacturer that also has some inks. They also produce an LE ink with the release of a special edition pen. A while back there was a Blue Hour pen, and an ink that went with it. Usually these inks sell out quickly, but the Twilight Blue is still available. It apparently didn't capture the fancy of the speculators, regular MB customers, or even the ink fans. There are a few reviews on FPN and they disagree on the color, but the consensus is of a very greenish blue. I'd agree with this assessment. On some papers it appears blue, and on others it appears green.

In a collaboration with Loic Rainouard from Styloplume.net, the chemist Didier Boinnard from L’Artisan Pastellier created the line of Callifolio fountain pen inks.

  8. Ink Review : Diamine Schubert (Music Collection) Pen : Lamy AL-Star, M-nib Paper : Rhodia N°16 notepad 80 gsm Review Vienna, autumn of 1821, banks of the Danube river Greetings wanderer, my name is Franz Peter Schubert and I am enjoying my afternoon walk along the banks of our famous Danube river. Thunderclouds are gathering and the sky is gleaming with a magical light, that colours the river a deep green-blue. This setting inspires my muse - I've got an idea for a wonderfully complex piece. I think I'll call it "Wanderer Fantasy". In 2015 Diamine released the Music Collection, a

I quickly got over it, though, when I realized just how unresistant to water it is. Still, it's an interesting ink and looks good

    Kwzi — #27 Turquoise

Care was taken to ensure color accuracy. I've had this on in my pen for a couple of days and I'm really enjoying it.

It is a blue-green, which seems to vary a lot in color based on pen and paper and even has sheen in the right combination - very like the flashy tail of the bird it is named for. Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread. If you want to a partner for a Co-Razy View (CRV) of this ink, please write it up and mail it to Lou Erickson. (PM for the address.)

    De Atramentis Mint Turquoise

    This is a nice minty color. Indeed halfway between a mint and a turquoise. It's a soft looking color. Definitely not an everyday color. But one of my wife's favorites. Has a good flow, feels nice to write with. Handled water fairly well.
