  1. This is a review for Kaweco Caramel Brown ink. This is the latest shade of brown from Kaweco. The previous brown was called Earth Brown and it's darker. You might still find some older bottles of Kaweco Earth Brown ink and the older ink boxes are a darker brown colour. You can tell if you have one of the newest bottles because the name of the ink is now printed on the box. It's also on the cartridge packs and Kaweco branding is now on each cartridge. This is a pretty shade of brown ink. It's not too dark, or almost black and I like it for that. However, I found it quite dry in the Kaweco Dia2

    Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz

    Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz Back in the days When I attended primary school in Holland in the end of the 70s a Fountain Pen was obligatory. Since I had some troubles with my fine motor skills my parents decided to buy me a Pelikano Fountain Pen which in those days was top of the bill and a serious investment back then. I always remember what I loved most about that pen. It not only had a nice blue colour, but I really loved the blue ink window. I thought it resembled the blue flashing light on police cars AWESOME Here is a link to the history of the Pelikano Fountain Pen htt

    Taccia Cha Review

    Taccia Cha ink review Disclaimer- First ink review here and would appreciate pointers if I missed something or if there is any information that one needs to know specifically not mentioned here also I lack other browns to compare color big apologies I don't have too many inks. First let me take a moment to address the elephant in the room, box and bottle. Bottle has big mouth for any pens is no issues with filling, but then when ink is low...I don’t know cos I cant see any mechanism to help here..its just a nice bottle. Box is not paper like most inks (not 100% at least) it sure does no

    Visconti Sepia

    Visconti Sepia Visconti is nicely saturate brown ink supplied by Visconti Fountain Pens of Florence Italy. Florence Italy of course is a beautiful city known for it ‘s rich culture fashion and design (forget Nike buy real shoes in Italy) Visconti Sepia ink Visconti Sepia is a well behaving ink. It is a nicely saturated medium dark brown ink. It is a medium shader as well. Drying time is not superfast but with 15 seconds very acceptable. There is only very little show through but feathering and bleeding are absent points 1-5 1 = 5= Fountain Pens:
  5. Hi, The only brown ink rollerball refills I've found are made by Montblanc. Since I can't afford a Montblanc rollerball pen, I was wondering if 1. anyone knows of brown ink refills made by anyone besides Montblanc; or 2. if anyone has personal experience with Montblanc rollerball refills fitting their non-Montblanc rollerball pens. The dimensions listed for Montblanc rollerball refills (brown, medium-point) are "6.1 x 0.4 x 0.4 inches" whereas the dimensions all other rollerball refills made by other brands (Sheaffer, Monteverde, etc) are different. Thanks in advance!

    Daytone Olive Brown

    Daytone Olive Brown I received few Ink bottles from one of my friend in Indore which are Daytone Inks, manufactured by Daylight industries. They are into ink manufacturing since 1956. More information can be found about the company here: Daytone Webpage Apart from Inks, they manufacture a lot of other stationary items. But this review is about one of the fountain pens inks that they manufacture. The inks that they manufacture ( 15 Nos. – increased from 8 Nos.) are as follows: Blue-Black Emerald Green Brilliant Red Crimson Turquoise Blue Deep Black Royal Blue Bright Violet Hava
  7. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Brandy Dazzle This ink is chestnut brown with a great gold sheen My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the

    Ink Review: Diamine Macassar

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Macassar A dark brown ink from the standard range. The word ‘macassar’ means a kind of oil that men formerly used on their hair to make it shine and lie flat. Makassar is a spelling variant. Makassar is also a former name of Ujung Pandang, a seaport on SW Sulawesi in central Indonesia. Flow Rate: Very good. Quite wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.Lubrication: Good with the M nib on several different papers, a bit more would have been nice with the Safari F nib.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Good.Shading Potential: Some seen wi

  10. I have a couple of brown inks to review that I haven’t used before. This one is Diamine Chocolate Brown This is a dark, rich, brown, like really dark chocolate. I never realised how dark it was. So rich and saturated. Almost a sinfully dark chocolate. I didn’t see much shading until I wrote on more absorbent paper, because it’s such a saturated ink. Then I saw some on one of the papers. It’s a wet ink and took 30 seconds to dry on my thick, coated Xerox paper. I experienced no problems at all while I was writing with it, and found it so smooth and lubricated. It was a pleasure to write wit
  11. Here is Waterman Brown (I hate the name "Absolute Brown"). It's one of my favorite brown inks. It's well behaved, has an attractive and subtle green sheen when it's laid on thick, it's cheap, and it's widely available. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/661/tJhMPS.jpg
  12. I am new to the fountain pen world. I am fond of brown inks and so I bought a Waterman Absolute Brown. But it is not going well with my Platinum Preppys. I have one fine and one medium nib. Both of them are having terrible flows with the Waterman brown ink. Can anyone suggest some other relatively inexpensive fountain pens that will go well with Waterman Absolute Brown??? Thank you in advance. P.S.: Previously I had a Pelikan brown ink. But its performance was terrible in every pen. Later I came to know that it is one of the most dry inks available. Then I bought the Waterman. So I really w

    Akkerman #23 Bekakt Haags

    So this is my first ink review and I was mostly spurred to do one because there are very few ink reviews for this ink, which I find wonderful. So I have had this ink for a week and a bit, but it has given me the opportunity to test it a bit in two different pens and so far I can say I LOVE the ink. I have never been a huge brown in fan, but with getting a Pilot Custom 823 in Amber I felt that it would need to at least sometimes be filled with a brown ink "to match" ... DONT shake your head I know you do it too!!!. So while I havent gotten my Pilot 823 back from Dan Smith yet I should have it
  14. Can anyone recommend any saturated inks with good flow? I know mostly inks are either saturated and quite viscous, or very well flowing and much more wishy washy. I'm looking for saturated inks which also have good flow and and relatively easy to clean/ not damaging to fountain pens. The only one that comes close to me is Iroshizuku Take- Sumi, but I'm sure there must be an even darker black ink, which is still well behaved. Any recommendations? If they have good shading even better.

    Ink Review - Krishna Bronze Leaf

    KRISHNA BRONZE LEAF The review is simultaneously posted at my blog here : LINK In Indian Fountain Pen industry or Circles, Dr. Sreekumar is quite known for his hand-turned fountain pens and almost 20 types of nib tuning. However recently he has shelved in to making fountain pen inks under the brand name of KRISHNA. I am really happy to see someone in India has taken initiative to standup and make good quality and non standard color Inks. These inks are sold for Rs. 100 (1.5 USD) each for 30 ml ink bottle plus shipping. The inks that are being produced are currently limited to 28
  16. This ink makes me go om nom nom. Such a unique shade of brown, fairly (and superficially) comparable to Noodler's Whaleman's Sepia, it's a dusky, ashen brown with a lot of personality. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/901/WPmJjs.jpg
  17. Here's a reddish brown (the only type of brown I really, really like) very similar to Noodler's Beaver, but much better behaved. I think I prefer Noodler's Beaver's color, but this ink is much better all around. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/537/Avxoot.jpg
  18. I am looking for permanent brown inks that offer shading...and are reasonably well behaved and require only regular cleaning to avoid clogging and staining problems. Suggestions?
  19. Has anyone ever tried diluting brown ink with (very filtered) tea ? Right now, I have my Waterman eyedropper filled up with J. Herbin Lie de Thé, but because I thought the colour was a bit to saturated flowing from this very wet pen, I diluted it. With triple filtered English Breakfast tea. I'm experimenting a bit, trying to get the colour just right. But I'm wondering if someone else has tried this before. greetings, M.
