    Indian "Camlin" Royal Blue Ink

    Recently got by post Indian "Camlin" Royal Blue ink 60ml. It came in a box, carefully packed. I liked the cap on a bottle - it opens easily and at the same time not a drop spilled during the transportation. The quality of ink is also nice. It's a bit more liquid than "Parker", but writes great on average quality paper (not too porous). This ink doesn't colorise the pen's grip section too fast (like for ex. USSR "Raduga") and doesn't dry if left for more than a couple of days inside the pen without writing, which are additional pluses. The smell of this ink is very light and quite pleasant. Would I buy it again? Yes, and I'd like to try other colors. Here are the pictures of the bottle and writing. At the moment this ink is one of my favourites.
  2. In May 2011, Kokuyo and Camlin came together to create Kokuyo Camlin Limited. They continue to offer inks and pens. Scarlet Red is decent, vivid red ink that I enjoy using from time to time.

  3. The Camlin 22 fountain pen I’m reviewing in this post came to me along with a number of other pens, ranging in price and quality, that were provided to me free of charge by Kevin of www.JustWrite.com.au, in return for an impartial review. I’ve previously purchased a few lower-end Indian fountain pens – mostly from (another) Kevin (of Fountain Pen Revolution fame), but this was the first time I’d tried a Camlin pen, and I was keen to see how it would perform. Valued at AU$12.95, this is neither dirt cheap nor especially pricey – but I’ve found it to be a pretty reliable performer, over the few weeks I’ve had it inked up. This is one of those pens I’d hesitate to score out of 10 – for appearance and build quality I’d have to score it lower than some of the other pens I’ve been reviewing, but it has some pretty good selling points too. So I’ll settle for giving you a run-down of the pen, and let you make up your own mind about whether you want to try one out. ______________________________________________________________________ 1. Appearance & Design – A simple, (mostly) no-nonsense pen The Camlin 22 appears to be made out of some kind of plastic or acrylic – it has that faint whiff of I-don’t-know-what that my Noodler’s pens tend to arrive with, though not quite as noticeable. The cap, grip section and barrel are all made of the same coloured plasticky material (mine was black, but they also come in blue, green, red and grey). The top 2½ cm of the barrel is transparent, providing a pretty good ink window – the rest of the pen is opaque. I’m not sure what to make of the cap – the bottom half is surrounded (reinforced?) by a ribbed steel section that will probably protect it against cracking – I just can’t decide whether it enhances or detracts from the overall look of the pen. It blends in well, though, with the chrome accents at the top and bottom of the pen, and the clip (stamped with the brand name, ‘CAMLIN’) is nice and springy – it’ll hold the pen very securely in a shirt or jacket pocket. http://i.imgur.com/5zhi1Bp.jpg … 2. Construction & Quality – Pretty acceptable for a cheaper pen! Though the pen is really not that much to look at, it’s pretty sturdy, and looks like it’ll take a good beating. Given the lowish price point, this is a pen you won’t be worried about using and abusing somewhat – though owing to the large ink capacity, I don’t think I’d be just tossing it into a backpack or handbag! http://i.imgur.com/FPPs1i2.jpg … 3. Weight & Dimensions – Fairly lightweight, but a comfortable fit in the hands Weighing in at 16g uninked, the Camlin 22 is pretty light to carry and wield. At 132mm capped and 116 uncapped, it’s longer than my TWSBI Diamond Mini, but still fits reasonably well in my shirt pockets. I don’t find I need to post the cap to use it comfortably, but the cap WILL post quite securely, and quite deeply too – providing an overall length of 142mm. The grip section is a tad slender (tapering down from 9.5mm to 8.5mm), but I tend to grip it on the threads for the cap – which is around 10.5mm, and very comfortable. … 4. Nib & Performance – Very fine, bordering on extra fine – but glides smoothly enough! The nib is a pretty plain, somewhat squat hunk of stainless steel that tapers to a very fine point – and though it’s notionally a Fine nib, I find it lays a very fine line indeed (which is just fine by me!). Despite the lack of ‘sex appeal’, though, it’s very serviceable. I found it slightly scratchy at first, but was able to smooth it out nicely with some 12000 grit micromesh. It’s a heck of a lot nicer than the Serwex nibs I’ve encountered before, though – those things are horrible! Though I don’t know much about either manufacturer, I’m guessing that Camlin is the better quality of the two all round – it shows in the workmanship of their pens more generally, but especially in the quality and performance of their nibs. This is quite acceptable – though I’m betting that, as with the Serwex 101s I have in my collection, you could easily swap this out for an FPR nib (which you can purchase separately from Fountain Pen Revolution, but they’re also available from JustWrite for Australian customers). The feed appears to be made of ebonite – which makes it even easier to adjust for a replacement nib (by heat setting, and/or additional sculpting) if need be. http://i.imgur.com/cgIfMhF.jpg http://i.imgur.com/WlzF38r.jpg … 5. Filling System & Maintenance – It’s an Eyedropper – what else is there to say? Though I’ve been somewhat wary of eyedropper-filled pens in the past, I’m beginning to appreciate them more and more. They have the advantage of being very easy to fill… and very easy to service. The ink capacity of the Camlin 22 would be around 2ml, which is pretty good compared to a cartridge and/or cartridge converter pen – but still not excessive. The pen can pretty easily be broken down to its constituent parts for cleaning and maintenance – if I were scoring this pen, I’d probably give it a 9 or 10 out of 10 here. … 6. Cost & Value – A pretty decent pen, for not a lot of dough I think Indian fountain pen manufacturers at present are facing some stiff competition from their Chinese counterparts – for around the same price, you could buy something like a Jinhao x450 or x750, both of which are solid brass pens with reasonable nibs… Or the Jinhao 599 which (if you don’t mind its Lamy Safari-style tripod grip) I would say is the nicest pen I’ve got in this price range. But this is a good, serviceable pen, very lightweight and very reliable. http://i.imgur.com/7pRkcpo.jpg … 7. Conclusion All in all, this is a pretty decent pen, for a relatively low price – one of the better lower-end Indian pens that I own. Its one big advantage over the Jinhao pens I’ve referenced is its larger ink capacity – and (probably) the fact that if you don’t like the nib it comes with, it would be very straightforward to swap in an FPR nib, which now come in XF, F, M and broad, as well as Fine Stub and Flex (which may or may not work with this feed). …

    Camlin Royal Blue Ink

    This is my first ink review, and it's going to be CAMLIN ROYAL BLUE! I saw this as one of the requested inks, so I gave it a shot! Constructive critics, are always welcome! Here you go![ attachment=466681:camlin royal blue .pdf] Right. It comes in a 60 mL bottle, and is dye based, costs around 20 INR or .30 Dollars. I have covered the rest in the attachment. SCORES: 1. Saturation: 4 / 5. It isn't the same throughout, as the colour varies over a few days. 2. Drying: 3 / 5. As you can see from the drying test, it isn't very great. 3. Smoothness: 4.5 / 5. It feels brilliant writing with this ink, it's really smooth, but not as good as PR or Waterman for example. 4. Shading: 2 / 5. It is TERRIBLE! There is zero shading! It isn't something very good, or pleasing to the eye. Final Score: 13.5 / 20. Hope you enjoyed! The file is attached here, as I couldn't figure out how to have it in the middle of the review! camlin royal blue .pdf
  5. hello everyone!! this is my first ever review on FPN. hope i am able to provide at least a close-to-proper review and that you like it! any suggestions and tips about making it better are welcomed wholeheartedly and with gratitude! Introduction: Camlin Ltd is an Indian company engaged in manufacturing quality stationary products since 1946. In the year 1931, Dandekar & Co commenced its operation of manufacturing Horse Brand ink powders and tablets. Later it started production of Camel Ink. The company was renamed as camlin in the year 1946. camlin sllek is a piston-filler model. the pen comes in a variety of elegant dark and mute colours to choose from. First impression: the pen looks quite elegant and with a matter-of-fact finish which is very subtle yet beautiful in its own way. Also, the line that marks the difference between the piston screw and the ink reservoir is not seen while holding the pen, which is quite nice. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2846/9275237970_339a47fe5b.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-36-51-788 by deathadder_44, on Flickr Body materials and built quality: The cap is made of stainless steel with a golden coloured clip which is quite fexible and easily usable without the fear of breaking it. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7281/9275244242_da9cdccb13_z.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-37-49-764 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The body is made of good quality plastic and feels strong to hold. it is a single body from the grip section to the beginning of the piston screw with rectangular ink windows just above the grip section. http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5322/9275240134_fd17e0dd56_z.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-38-59-212 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The piston end of the body http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2885/9275409548_9fbe583f49.jpg C360_2013-07-13-12-49-21-636 by deathadder_44, on Flickr Filling mechanism: The piston mechanism is smooth and easy to operate, although i found it a bit difficult to open the screw at the first go, but that would probably be the case with many new pens. after the first use i found no difficulty in the mechanism whatsoever. the piston as seen through the ink windows. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7443/9272461923_c375bff554.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-43-09-251 by deathadder_44, on Flickr the piston removed. http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5488/9275250092_eb6d9b28db.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-43-47-224 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The nib and feed: the nib is a gold coloured stainless steel nib which draws a fine and continuous line without any skipping. the ink flow is smooth and satisfactory without any problem (i used a camel royal blue ink). the nib. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2880/9272455749_5c01a2cb27.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-41-17-920 by deathadder_44, on Flickr http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5342/9272465901_249c5b2819.jpg C360_2013-07-12-16-41-59-927 by deathadder_44, on Flickr sorry i forgot to take the pictures of the nib and feed removed. the feed is standard ebonite which performs quite satisfactorily. Conclusion: it is a fine everyday writing instrument which does its work well. it is nothing fancy and yet it feels good to look at. perhaps because to me, it represents the fine art of penmanship which was taught in the schools during my school years, an art which is slowly getting dissolved in this chaotic world of competition. this pen, like many others i own, brings back the memories of those care-free days! but all that aside, this is a good reliable pen which does what is has to do and does it well without ringing too many bells!
  6. Offer Free 7 ml. Ink Sample of Bril/Camlin on every pen purchase. Colours available : Blue, Black, Green, Red Offer valid till 30th November 2018. https://www.kiwipens.com/
  7. I recently purchased a few standard (60ml) ink pots of the camlin royal blue ink. As soon as i laid down the first line. I noticed that the colour has been changed. I had purchased a few ink pots from Mumbai and the other from Ahmedabad. I noticed that no matter the location, the colour now is different than the previous ink. (Both have manufacturing dates of around mid-late 2014) The change is ever so mild, but it is noticeable none the less. The newer colour has become more of a uniform blue which is a bit lighter in hue. The earlier colour had a purple-grey undertone to it which made it a bit more saturated and darker. (I hope all this makes any sense!) I guess it will be better if i just showed the pictures! Here they are. The left one is the new colour. And the right one, the old colour. I suppose it is more clearly visible in the last picture. So what are your thoughts? Please share your views. If you haven't noticed it, do you think you will like the new colour? And if you already noticed this, What is your opinion?
  8. Is the silicone grease preapplied in the factory? Can I use the pen without applying silicone grease?

    Ink Review - Camlin Scarlet Red

    This is my second review of the ink from the another popular brand in India, CAMLIN KOKUYO whose presence is pan India. Camlin used to manufacture 4 colors of ink in India under brand name CAMEL as follows: Scarlet Red Royal Blue Green Permanent BlackBut lately they have stopped manufacturing the Green and there is a rumor in the market that Scarlet Red might also go of the shelves. This CAMEL Scarlet Red ink , which I will be reviewing today was procured from local market in Delhi for meagre Rs. 15 for 60 ml glass bottle. Camlin Scarlet Red It is a dye based ink and it has turned out to be one of my all time favorite inks. Its bright shocking red ink. Love it. Camel inks or Camlin inks are currently the most used inks in India because of their pan India presence. INK SPLASH Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on Bilt Matrix – 70 gsm Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on JK Executive Bond Paper – 100 gsm DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Drop on Paper Napkin COLOR MATCH Camlin Scarlet Red – Color Match WRITING SAMPLES Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Camlin School Notebook using 3 pens of varying nibs widths The writing makes it clear that this ink offers no or very little shading. But still i love the brightness of this ink, the red brightness it has to offer. So in to your eyes. The ink does not feather at all even on the normal school notebooks and is a very well behaved ink. INK SWABS Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Bilt Matrix (70gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Camlin School Notebook – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right WATERPROOF TEST Camlin Scarlet Red – Waterproof test Its not waterproof at all. Just one run of tap water and all gets washed away. BLOW UP WRITING SAMPLE Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up on JK Bond paper (100 gsm) Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) CONCLUSION: I like the shade of Red thats offered by Camlin. This ink is nice wet ink and has a normal dry up time. It does not clog up the pen even if kept in the pen for a week or two. One more thing is that doesn’t stain the Pen if you are using any demonstrator. Moreover i find it better than other inexpensive red inks in India and some international inks. Must buy if you are in India and love the Red Color Ink. For further details and entries, please visit my blog LINK
  10. Hello Fountain Pen Network, I've just recently joined as a member - but I've been trawling the FPN forums for a while as I most certainly have a non-negligible (okay, massive!) fountain pen addiction and every few months I get an itch to add to my collection. This time I'm looking for a childhood fountain pen - one that I used when I was in school in India: the Camlin Sleek. Unfortunately, it seems to be a discontinued model and I haven't successfully found it anywhere. Does anyone know of an online store / perhaps wishes to sell one of theirs? Thanks in advance! :-)

    Camlin Sd Help

    Greeting ladies and gentlemen and children like me. I have recently bought a Camlin SD for a thousand rupees and I am pleased with the overall quality of the pen except for a few flaws. 1) The ink flow is low and inconsistent. Sometimes, it writes dry and sometimes just perfect. The low ink flow is corrected now as I have spread the tines by a bit. (I use Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue for this pen) 2)There are two bands on the section just below the nib. Ink seems to be leaking by just a tiny tiny bit. 3)The resin smells like puke (seriously). How do I correct these issues? Any help will be appreciated.
