    Sailor Manyo Chigaya - A Lazy Review

    Sailor has doubled the number of ink colours in its Manyo line of inks recently, by adding another eight in the second half of 2020, after first introducing the product line in 2019. I don't have any of the first eight, but with COVID inspiring all that panic buying, and a significant discount on offer for pre-orders for the new colours, I ordered the four relatively more subdued and/or sombre ones; and, after much delay, they finally arrived. Chigaya, which is probably the most sombre looking of the lot, was the first bottle I opened. (When I was developing the chromatography strip for
  8. Taccia overview: Taccia is a Taiwanese-American brand started in California, that has been recently been bought by the Nakabayashi company. Nakabayashi is a maker of a long list of home and office products who have, under the Taccia brand, begun making fountain pen inks. All Taccia inks are made in Japan. There is some speculation as to whether Sailor makes the Taccia inks, but I have found no evidence to prove this. What I can say, according the the information I was able to gather is that at the time when Nakabayashi bought Taccia and wanted to release inks under that brand, they

    Sailor Mouseyo

    The new Sailor Mouseyo ink! Does anyone have any suggestion for a mix that would yield a shading grey with minimal pink sheen? I have a few (mainly Diamine and Pilot iroshizuku) grey inks here, but I wouldn't know where to begin.

    Pelikan 400 Gray Or Green Striped

    Early Pelikan 400 with a strange color change Any explanation for this type of color change? The stripes are uniformly gray on the barrel, where it was not covered by the cap and green where they are covered by the cap.

    Birmingham Pens Oxidized Brass

    Birmingham Pens Emerald View Park Oxidized Brass Based on the positive review of some of the inks from the Birmingham Pens shop in Pittsburgh, PA I ordered the full sampler pack of 30 inks. I know some won;'t be to my taste, but many seemed quite interesting. The inks certainly win the award for the longest names. I stashed the samples away for relatively easy access, and this was the first ink I blindly selected for review. Interestingly (or not) it has also been reviewed recently. This is a dark gray ink with a strong blue undertone. To me it appears as dark gray in most light, but often

    Sailor 1911 Anchor Gray Fountain Pen

    Sailor just released a new color to both the Sailor 1911 Standard and Large fountain pens. Similar to the Fresca Blue, the new Anchor Gray color is exclusive to North American retailers. Our initial shipment arrives any day and the pens are on sale as a pre-order and will ship as soon as they arrive. We only have a limited number of pens available in all 7 nib sizes. https://www.penchalet.com/category.aspx?hue=13&keyword=Sailor%201911%20Anchor%20Gray%20Fountain%20Pen

    Sailor Kingdom Note Falco Peregrinus

    Kingdom Notes second series of bespoke inks from Sailor was themed "Wild Birds". This was back in 2013 I believe. When I fell down the rabbit hole of bespoke inks I was fairly selective and for whatever reasons I didn't get many from these series, except of course, Lidth's jay. Recently an inky friend in Japan sent me a couple KN samples so I could review them. Falco peregrinus is one. Normally gray inks don't interest me even though they probably shade better than black inks, but I always prefer the latter as they are decisive. Black is an ink for serious writing and correspondence. To me,
  15. Hey guys, I recently tried a sample of Diamine Grape and really loved the color. However, the ink is a bit weird and gets a little cloggy if left for a couple days in a pen. I have been looking at Lamy Dark Lilac swatches online and I really love the color as well. I am considering getting the ink, then making my own mixes to achieve a darker purple when I am in the mood for it. Does anyone have any experience with making grayish purples like Diamine Damson or a dark purple like Diamine Grape? I don't want to purchase two bottles of purple ink - as I am likely never going to use them u
  16. Sometimes inks are not made for being used at work, for taking notes, for normal correspondence... but they are so gorgeous that you simply don't mind what other people could think of you and keep using them like there's no tomorrow. The review which is going to follow is the complicated love story between me and Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadows. Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadow is a interesting grey ink, dark enough to be definitely usable, with high ammount of nice shading on every paper, and lots of nice gold glitters. Like most Diamine Inks, has really good characteristic
  17. I thought that the only 90s. Balance in gray is the limited edition, the well-known sac-filler. However, I recently acquired a cartridge model in gray with dark-blue and forest-green accents (these are not well visible on the photo below, unfortunately). I have never seen s photo of such version - am I right, that it can be quite rare?
  18. Grey Plum is one of those colors that I was most excited about in the recent Group Buy from KWZ Ink. The swab posted on the site was all I had to go by, and I admit, I wasn't thrilled by the color there. But I liked the idea of the color, and I like most of Konrad's more complex colors, so I gave it a try. Y'ALL. This is GREAT. Okay, so here's a review overview, with closeups and comparisons below: Right away, Grey Plum reminded me of one of my favorite discontinued inks, Sailor Chu-shu. There just aren't many purple-leaning greys out there. This is a swab where the inks w
  19. I don't have many inks that are 'just' grey so I thought this one would be an interesting addition to my hoard collection. Also, I was curious about a grey colour in a series called 'chromatics'… In summary: Use this on absorbent papers, not Rhodia et al unless you are trying for a very specific look. With that caveat, this can be a useful ink for casual note taking and informal messages, even in an office setting. Your message will seem much less forceful than with a black ink, so consider it for situations where consensus-building is important, e.g. voluntary sectors. With a very wet write

    J. Herbin - Cacao Du Bresil

    Cacao du Bresil is my most used ink. I keep it in my daily carry pen 90% of the time. It is so versatile, understated and beautiful. If you can't tell, I quite like it. Warbler sketch was done with Cacao du Bresil, J. Herbin Terre de Feu and Rohrer & Klingner Alt-goldgrun in a Stilman and Birn Gamma Series sketchbook. Reasonable care was taken to ensure color accuracy.

    "vintage Blue" Mix

    http://i.imgur.com/lHWE2Rr.jpg I mixed this a while ago; it's simple and it works great and comes out to be a greyish blue. The title in the photo most accurately represents the colour. It's my favourite mixture, please enjoy and let me know what you think

    Montblanc Permanent Gray

    As much as I love bright, cheery inks, I’m really a sucker for sort of boring colors - brown, gray, blue-black… I feel like these colors have so much potential to be really interesting with just the right twist, so they hold my interest much more than some of the neon inks. I received a sample of this ink from a friend, though he had no idea that it had also been on my wishlist of inks I wouldn’t mind getting for Christmas. Turns out, I’m quite glad that I did not get a full bottle of it because it is not one of my favorites. This is the first MontBlanc ink I’ve ever tried, and I

It is a cool grey, reminding me of the endless grey skies of the Seattle winters I grew up with. Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread.
