    Best Black List

    Is it just me or are retailers getting better at sharing information comprehensively for the good of the community? This recent updated list from JetPens (no affiliation) just hit the sweet spot particularly the end table: The Best Black Fountain Pen Inks It saves hours of fora searching, video reviews, etc etc
  2. Here are the top 25 inks listed by popularity from the Fountain Pen Companion website. That site continues to list many more inks down to those submitted by only one user. The number in parenthesis is the number of users with that ink in their collection. On the Fountain Pen Companion website you can click on an ink's name to see swatches of the color and user reviews. Nice! Diamine Oxblood (882) J. Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivor (873) Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo (831) Diamine Ancient Copper (815) Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki (810) Diamine Earl Grey (638) Noodler's Apache Sunset (631) Robert Oster Fire and Ice (579) Diamine Aurora Borealis (549) Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrün (534) Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-kai (534) Pilot Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo (518) Pilot Iroshizuku Asa-Gao (511) Organics Studio Nitrogen Royal Blue (510) Waterman Serenity Blue (497) Diamine Red Dragon (490) Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-jaku (485) Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses (469) Sailor Shikiori Yama-Dori (465) Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki-Shikibu (463) Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-ro (440) Diamine Autumn Oak (428) Diamine Sherwood Green (427) Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki (421) Sailor Manyo Haha (421)
  3. Hey guys. I just recently got into fountain pens and *instantly* fell in love. I can't get enough of it. That said, I'd like to (hopefully) start a massive thread getting to know what some of everyone's favorite inks are. I have been sampling inks like crazy in the last two weeks and I would love to add to the collection; as well as help others decide what inks they might want to try out themselves, so... To start us off, out of the ones I've sampled so far (only have sampled about 10 out of the 40 I ordered so just listing the favorites of the ones I know), my favorites are: Pilot Iroshizuku: "Kon-Peki" and "Momiji" Noodler's: "Apache Sunset" Diamine: "Flamingo Pink" Fire away!
  4. Hi Sheaffer's lovers, I recently purchased a "repair box" that I will restore lightly to become a storage box for some of my collection, and in it was this fantastic manual and parts list. I figured I would make the images available. Enjoy! Matt
  5. Hey everyone! I'm looking to moving up in the pen world to a nicer pen but I don't really know what I want. Right now though, I crave some perspective on what the FPN community likes best. If you would like to, please: Post a comment about your favorite sub $200 penPost a few reasons why you like the penPost what you have it inked withThanks!

    Fading Inks

    I thought it might be useful to have a thread that lists writers experiences of fading inks. I usually try and avoid inks that fade a lot, but some fade only a little and while this doesn't bother me too much it might bother others. For ease of reading, perhaps we can devise a grading of fading as follows: Significant: the ink fades very significantly, either in terms of a big change of colour or in shade or has disappearing or unreadable text. Moderate: The text is still readable, but there is a noticeable shift in colour or shade but it is still, more or less, the colour it proclaims itself to be. Mild: Some fading, but you have to look hard at comparisons to notice. For me, I would like to avoid inks that have significant fading. Sometimes this can be noticeable within weeks of laying the ink on the page and at other times it doesn't become apparent until a year or two later. Thankfully I have yet to discover a 'significant' fading ink. Here's my list: Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki (Moderate) Waterman Mysterious Blue (Moderate)+ Montbanc Royal Blue (Moderate) Noodler's Cactus Fruit Eel (Mild) Diamine Majestic Blue (Mild) Akkerman Verhoot (Mild) Noodler's Purple Martin (Mild) Sailor Bungbox Happiness (Mild) J Herbin Blue Pervenche (Mild) Montblanc Leo Tolstoy (Moderate)* Pelikan Edelstein Topaz (Mild) Montblanc Dark Blue (Moderate) +I'm a little concerned about this one. I haven't had it long and it has faded very noticeably. *This discovery hurt. I love this ink. It seems to survive alright in a normal nib, but a stub nib highlights the shift in shade.
