  1. @OCArtwas kind enough to supply the Chesterfield, so I figured the least I could do was compare it to something! I like dark greens. Still sugar cane paper from Office Depot, and the same legal pad that shadows when I take pictures as I had to fold it in half to make it fit in a bag.

    Chesterfield Ink Replacement

    As many of you likely already know, xfountainpens.com and its Chesterfield inks are no more. The store has been rebranded as Birmingham pens, but there was no replacement for the inks. Now though, it appears there is. I checked the site tonight, as it still just redirects to the new one if you type in xfountainpens.com, and found a whole line of Birmingham inks named after influential people. Here's an example of one of the new inks: https://www.birminghampens.com/collections/bottled-ink/products/birmingham-andrew-carnegie-steel-blue-30ml . I wonder if these will also be rebranded Diamene
  3. I just got an e-mail stating that there's a "quick clearance" sale going on. http://us7.campaign-archive1.com/?u=641bdb720edf06ad497945509&id=6d8f9e7ebf&e=5c13368da6 All of the Chesterfield inks are on sale for $3.49 per 50mL bottle, including the Archival Vault, which I believe normally costs a couple dollars more than the others. Remember that there's free US shipping with purchases of $15.00 or more. Cheers!

    Three New Chesterfield Antique Inks

    So three new inks were added to Chesterfield's Antique line-- Antique Raven, Antique Mariner, and Antique Walnut. (left to right: Antique Walnut, Antique Raven, Antique Mariner) What do you guys think? I'm not a blue-ink person, but that Mariner looks pretty appealing. Judging by the swabs provided online, how do you think Raven and Walnut compare to maybe some of the greys from the Iroshizuku inks or other ink brands?

    Chesterfield Antique Mariner

    Chesterfield inks seem to have been around for a while, but there aren't many reviews on FPN. Word is that they're either rebranded Diamine inks or that they come from the same manufacturer, but oftentimes can be bought at a much cheaper price. There are threads trying to match Diamine colors with Chesterfield colors, but supposedly the Antique line are supposed to be unique. Mariner is one of the three newest inks in the Antique line. When I think of "mariner" I think of stormy, wind-swept seas and frothy dark waves. The ink seems to do its name justice. Its a muted kind of blue that I d
  6. Just tested the 9 Antique colors from xFountainPens, including the latest Shamrock. The writing and scribbles are from a needle point Tachikawa 77 dip pen, so I can see it's much more of dusky purple to burgundy when laid on thick. The smears are a drop of ink on a metal needle, spread sideways to get an idea of the color at a "normal" ink density. The right end has a little thicker second small drop. Paper is HP 32# laser. No bleedthrough except the very-wet first letters drawn with the freshly loaded dip pen. I enjoyed the Shamrock in the Platinum 3776 F, and just switched to trying

    Ink Brand Loyalty

    I am a huge fan of Chesterfield ink, and before I consider buying an ink from a different company I always look to see if I can purchase a similar color from Chesterfield first. (I realize that Chesterfield is just a repackaged and rebranded Diamine, but Chesterfield inks come in spiffy Nalgene bottles, cost far less than Diamine, and have more sizing options. They may be the same ink as Diamine, but I think of them as a separate entity.) The only other ink company that I use as often as Chesterfield is Rohrer & Klingner. With these two companies covering the vast majority of colors an

    Chesterfield Antique Jade

    This is my first attempted ink review, so please let me know if there's anything unclear, and I apologize for imperfect scans and handwriting. Chesterfield is a line of inks sold through xfountainpens.com. They are understood to be made by Diamine, but their unit prices are significantly lower than I find for Diamine at most online retailers (I am in the US). Xfountainpens sells them in Nalgene bottles in volumes of 25, 50, or 100ml. Many of the Chesterfield inks are believed to be identical to inks in the regular Diamine line-up, but those with "Antique" in the name are believed to be uni
  9. I recently received some Chesterfield Antique Yankee. What a beautiful ink! Good flow, works well on all the paper I use. I have seen posts that link it to Diamine Denim, Midnight and Regency Blue. Does anyone know which Diamine color Yankee corresponds to?
  10. Does anyone know which colour of Chesterfield is the match for Diamine Asa Blue? I have read through many of the threads but not found this....and I love Asa Blue! Alternatively, anyone know a great inexpensive source for Diamine inks (that does not involve a large shipment from the UK)? Or want to unload some Asa Blue for a good price? thank you
  11. Has anyone here tried the Antique Copper and Antique Crimson inks from xfountianpens? Does the Antique Copper look like Diamine Ancient Copper?
