  1. From the album: Ink performance testing

    Lamy Benitoite was also included at the end, because there seems to be some uncertainty and conjecture online as to whether it has any iron-gall content.

  2. From the album: Japanese pens

    This Platinum Balance pen, with a gold-plated steel nib, held Rohrer & Klingner Salix for ten or eleven weeks. At no point did the nib hard-start, despite the known shortcoming that the cap seal performance on the Platinum Balance is nowhere near as good as on cheaper Platinum models equipped with Slip & Seal inner caps. However, by the end of said period, less than 10% of the initially full fill of ink remained in the converter, even though the pen was only used moderately lightly for writing in the meantime.

    Hero 232 - A Lazy Review

    When it comes to cheap inks — both in terms of price per retail bottle and price per unit volume — from brands a fountain pen user outside of their countries of origin probably has heard of, it's hard to go past Hero inks. They even manage to "tick the box" when it comes to being primarily a manufacturer of fountain pens that also sell inks; some users seem to trust that inks would be safer to use if those are made by a "fountain pen brand". Out of the Hero inks, Hero 232 (iron-gall) blue-black and Hero 234 (carbon) black are probably the most well-known in the Western world. Now, of cours
  4. From the album: Ink performance testing

    I couldn't stand how woolly and blobby some of the lines written with the tester pens look, especially in the actual testing pad and notebook (not Rhodia Dotpad) I'm using for the year-long experiment, and so I reground the nibs on all of the pens. Note: Colour correction — which usually makes the image darker overall — in GIMP was not applied after the scan, but I have included the reference colour patches from the same scan. I wanted to show you how dark Diamine Registrar's Ink looks to the scanner, without any doubt as to whether I artificially darkened it or increased the contr

  5. From the album: Nothing to see here, move along

    The prices for a 110ml bottle of Ecclesiastical Stationery Supplies Registrars Ink, inclusive of delivery within the UK and abroad, as of February 2021. I don't see any difference for whether the customer is ordering from Australia, Barbados, Canada, Djibouti, Mexico or USA; and there appears to be no discount for ordering multiple bottles at once, so I may as well just buy a bottle at a time instead of stocking up.

    Looking For Ig Blue/black In The Uk

    I am in the UK and I was looking for a blue/black that would be getting towards darkness. Well it would be with the iron-gall content... Alright. So Rohrer & Klinger's Salix and there's Diamine Registrar's ink. Both of these I have used. I have also used Hero B/B cartridges. I suspect this to be the same as Hero 232 bottled ink. Furthermore I believe that Hero ink also has IG content. The problem is getting the Hero ink. Amazon UK doesn't have it. It is available on ebay, but I have only found it from a Aussie seller & the shipping is wince-inducing for this Yorkshireman. The three n
  9. After reading Richard Binders' article on inks http://www.richardspens.com/?page=ref/care/inks.htm and after having some troubles with some of my pens using trashing ink I would like to know if there is a listing of inks or at least colors that should be avoided in high end pens, especially vintage models with steel nibs like for example a MB 138.

  11. Hello! Here today with a quick overview of an ink mix I prepared yesterday morning. On the R&K website they say that their inks can be mixed without any negative consequences (except for sepia), so I decided to give it a try with some Salix that I already had and some Verdura that I ordered a sample of just for this experiment. They were mixed approximately 1:1, and the resulting color is a dark teal (ish). I did not do any color adjusting, but the scan appears pretty true to reality on my screen. Also, forgive my bad handwriting - my new VP is being a pain in the butt and skippin
