    Ink Review: Diamine Autumn Oak

    The fact that the autumn leaves are falling reminded me that I have Diamine Autumn Oak in my Lamy AL-Star Copper Orange FP and have not reviewed it yet. The pen has been filled for quite a while, so the ink may have darkened slightly but it's now a lovely autumnal colour. Not yellow, but a darkish orangey golden brown. It's truly an autumnal ink. I've written with it on different papers to show you the effect on a paper you might have. My Tomoe River notebook has heavier TR paper in it. I think it might be 68grams, but I'm not sure of that. These are photos not scans and have been corrected u

    Ink Review: Diamine Coral

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Coral ink. Diamine Coral is from the standard ink range. It’s an interesting colour. Bright and vibrant. Think the colour of cooked salmon, a pink that’s almost orange. Or an orange that is almost pink. Although it’s not a dark colour it’s still a saturated ink. I found it flowed very well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt quite wet to write with, and it’s lubrication was nicely smooth across the page. I noticed nice shading, plus an element of pinkish sheen that seems to have a halo effect around the ink. My review was written on 100gsm smooth coated

    Ink Review: Diamine Orange

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Orange ink. Diamine Orange is a saturated orange dye based ink that I think is the perfect orange. It neither leans towards the yellow end of the colour spectrum, nor the red end of the colour spectrum and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Diamine Orange is a well named ink. It does “what it says on the jar” absolutely spot on orange. More orange than Blaze Orange and Sailor Jentle Apricot, but not quite as “retina searing” as Pumpkin. I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with, although it felt very slightly dryer than Coral and Peach Haze. Lubricat

    Ink Review: Diamine Peach Haze

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Peach Haze ink. Diamine Peach Haze is a saturated orange dye based ink with a slight pinkness about it. It’s a well-named peach or apricot colour and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Peach Haze is more orange than Diamine Coral, Noodler’s Dragon’s Napalm and P.I. Fuyu gaki, but more pink than Diamond Orange, Noodler’s Operation Overlord Orange and P.I. Yu yake inks. I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with, although it felt slightly dryer than Coral. Lubrication was reasonable, but I would have liked more. No shading or sheen noticed. Flow Rate: Go
  5. As I plug my last cartridge of Lamy Copper Orange into my Al-Star, I start to consider replacements. So I have to ask: which inks the network believes are good look-alikes for Lamy Copper Orange? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!
  6. The Chesterfield Fire Opal was way too bright for me. So, I toned it down a bit. This combo is Chesterfield Fire Opal + Super Copper + Bright Gold + Black Pigment. The dust I used in this is Pearl Ex. http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g318/AlteredPaper/Ferris%20Wheel%20Kisses/11402266_10153462542691934_8234333748470623799_o_zpsr8gsmkvk.jpg
  7. Kaweco sent me a Kaweco Classic Sport Red FP in exchange for an honest review, and they included a pack of Sunrise Orange ink cartridges in the box. So I thought some of you might like to see it. I have reviewed the Kaweco Classic Sport here and used a writing sample of this ink in that review. Here it is again: I gave the pen a couple of shakes after inserting the cartridge, and it wrote straight away. Sometimes you need to squeeze a little water through Kaweco Sport pens before writing with them, but I didn't do this. The ink flowed quite smoothly, and lubricated the nib quite well
  8. Kaweco Classic Sport Red FP Review Source Kaweco sent me this pen in return for an honest review. The Sunrise Orange ink cartridges were included in the box. History (reproduced from the Kaweco web-site) Kaweco - In 1883 the manufacturer of high-quality writing instruments was founded in Heidelberg Germany. Kaweco has been producing a wide range of fine writing pens and has been setting a great value on classy design and high standard manufacturing. The first Kaweco Sport was founded in 1912 as a pocket fountain pen for ladies, officers and sportsmen. In 1930 the brands and models of Kaweco
  9. I did this little written look at Skrip Orange since there wasn't one up in the review list. Here's a photo of the 1st two (of 3) paragraphs: I had included a scan of the whole page but the scan is too red so I've left it out. This photo is much closer but still a little off in that the ink has just a little more yellow to it. The ink is on the watery side but dried fairly quickly on the BnR, looks a little flat once it dries. Noticeable show-through on cheap memo. Some shading, as you can see. With all the nice oranges out there, there's no particular reason to pick this one, unless yo

    Ink Review - Krishna Mangal

    KRISHNA MANGAL The review is simultaneously posted at my blog here : LINK Krishna Mangal – Ink Bottle (old style) In Indian Fountain Pen industry or Circles, Dr. Sreekumar is quite known for his hand-turned fountain pens and almost 20 types of nib tuning. However recently he has shelved in to making fountain pen inks under the brand name of KRISHNA. These inks are sold on eBay India Page for Rs. 550 (8 USD) each for 5 Nos. 30 ml ink bottle plus shipping. Now they come in new glass bottles.

    Ink Review: Diamine Amber

    My latest ink is Diamine Amber I thought I would try Diamine Amber because I found a bottle of Pelikan Edelstein Amber last year and I really like the colour. So I wanted to see if Diamine Amber was similar. However, I found it more of a yellow/orange than P.E. Amber and less saturated than Diamine Marigold (that I also have to review) and Sheaffer King's Gold. It has that very bright eye-popping tone in it like Montblanc Gandhi and Diamine Pumpkin that my scanner finds almost impossible to reproduce. I tried my best to make as many adjustments as I could to get it as close as possible to the
  12. My latest ink is Diamine Gerbera from the Flowers Set. I decided I should try to complete reviewing the Flower set inks, as I have reviewed all of the Music set inks. I find the Flowers set consists of brightly coloured inks whereas the Music set are more muted. So maybe I'm not always in the mood to write with brightly coloured inks. I decided to use Diamine Pumpkin, Caran d'Ache Infra Red and Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki as my comparison inks this time. Gerbera is a pinkish orangey shade, Pumpkin is bright orange, Caran d'Ache Infra Red is a pinkish scarlet red, and Pilot iroshizuku Fuyu-gake

    Rhodia Orange Ink?

    Is there an orange ink that matches Rhodia Orange? Thanks.
  14. Here's a nice, heavily shading ink from Private Reserve that I enjoyed reviewing. However, I still think Apache Sunset—more saturated, even heavier shading—is the better orangey/yellowy ink. Apache Sunset is the benchmark by which all other shade-heavy orange/yellow inks are judged. Still though, Shoreline Gold is a great ink most definitely worth a try. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/547/rd75.jpg Please remember to vote on this ink in the poll!
