  1. Akkerman Delfts Blauw This is short impression on Akkerman’s Delfts Blauw, inspired by Delft China... At first, I was not so impressed by the ink. It was almost too pale too bare. And it didn’t agree with my dry Waterman W2, though the only ink which agrees with this pen is R & K Verdigris. But after a couple of days it grew on me. Even in Waterman W2 it was alright. But the pen was still scratchy. It looks best in a monster Jinhao 450 with a fude nib. In my opinion it needs a wet wide nib. It’s a beautiful colour to use for this time of year, and with all the suffering going about, a soft blue is quite soothing….. Shading is again obvious with fude/wet nibs to a degree, but it dries to a soft muted color, as you can see. Faint sheening only with the fude nib on Tomoe River. Dry time is decent, flow wet but not lubricated. Though it made my Stub TWISBI less scratchy You can write non ephemeral texts with it, without fear. It will survive accidental spills, but I won’t sign a check or write an envelope with it. Personally, I prefer small bottles of inks. But the packaging is simple, understated, with an antique teal to it. I would suggest a sample for those interested and many pens to try, test and enjoy…… Part I Day 1 Rhodia dot pad: Amazon fountain pen unfriendly copy paper Tomoe River Water test - Rhodia Before After
