    Taming A Pilot Music Nib

    I very much like the austere formality of the Pilot 912 and thought that an MS nib would off-set that nicely. The pen arrived and I inked it up right away with Monteverde Copper Noir. Oh dear. The nib is a fire hose! So wet and hard to control. What to do? I recalled a recent thread extolling the virtues of Kiwa-Guro. I purchased a bottle. Analogous to putting high performance tyres on a car! I now have traction, control, the nib hugs the page and allows for precise manoeuvers. edit to add: and crisper lines Fantastic!! Now I can comfortably use this pen. Only thing is, the ink is black. I have no problem with black. I like black, but it’s only black, and I’ve become quite fond of KWZ Walk Over Vistula. So much so that I’m ashamed to admit I have three bottles. So I seek advice on inks with similar characteristics, that are more colourful, which exhibit shading. Maybe Pelikan Edelstein? Topaz in particular? Lgsoltek speaks of it’s lack of lubrication, which may be a good thing is this context. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/314698-pelikan-edelstein-aquamarine/ Like the shading here! Thank you Sandy1 https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/174538-pelikan-edelstein-topaz/ Or making it a little darker, as shown by sansenri. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/308805-aquamarine-pelikan-edelstein-ink-of-the-year-2016/?p=4155306 I thank you for your insights and advice.

    Edelstein Topaz, But Darker

    Picky me would like a slightly darker Edelstein Topaz. What do we think about adding a drop or two of Tanzanite? In 5ml sample vials, of course. I don't have either at present. If it's viable I'll get a bottle of Topaz and a sample of Tanzanite. Thank you for your input.
  13. The other day I was reading the compact review of Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz by member Jan2016... https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/320111-pelikan-edelstein-smoky-quartz-compact-review/ ...and I noticed that one person said that they do not like any of the inks sold by Pelikan. That intrigued me, because (IIRC) every time I have seen Pelikan Edelstein Topaz mentioned on here, the person mentioning it was doing so because they like - or even strongly like- that ink. As far as I can remember, I cannot remember ever seeing such unity of positive opinion about an ink. So, just to satisfy my curiosity, are there any of you reading this who dislike Edelstein Topaz? Or even only feel 'meh' about it? My thanks to you in advance for your replies. Cheers, M.
