Lifeguard posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsI stopped into a local thrift store a few times over the last week and picked up some nice ink. The Parker Super Quink Permanent Turquoise came new in the box in the Blue Diamond bottle and just cost me $1 on Friday. I picked up the rest of it all today for $11 and all are full bottles. Included were Parker Penman Ebony, Waterman Blue Black and Havana, and a bottle each of Mont Blanc Blue and Black. Nice finds and no repeats at a good price. No pen finds this time and the only regret was that the Parker Penman ink wasn't Sapphire Blue. It's the same shop where I found my Parker T1 and 51 pens and some other assorted finds. I'll have to meet up wth the Pen Posse to show them off some day.
Here's a quick review of some Parker Penman Emerald cartridges I had laying around for years. It's a beautiful, rich ink. Even though there are plenty of alternatives these days,I wish they'd bring back the Penman series.
I received an email from Fahrney's Pens advertising new Edelstein long catridges. Upon checking the Fahrney's site, http://www.fahrneyspens.com/Item--i-363266S?src=WP200714SENTTOEL&utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=Inhouse&utm_campaign=140710, I found the option for Edelstein Sapphire Blue. Since I had purchased a lot of Parker Penman Blue Sapphire ink before it became impossible to find and since I have been using Private Reserve American Blue catridges for the travel needs of my pens taking international size cartridges, I have not tried Edelstein Sapphire Blue ink; having a lot of Parker Penman Blue Sapphire ink, I have not needed to buy bottled ink. Since the picture of an ink blob on the Fahrney's site looked promising in regard to color, I wanted to ask how the Edelstein Sapphire Blue ink compares in color to my beloved Parker Penman Blue Sapphire and my substitute Private Reserve American Blue. Has anyone used each of these inks? If so, how do they compare in color? In particular, how does the color of Edelstein Sapphrie Blue compare to the rich deep color of Parker Penman Blue Sapphrire? Thanks! : )
A week ago I saw they have four colors of Panman listed on the site, and I asked about the availability. I know they are discontinued, this is why it was interesting. They answered they have the "Ruby, Brown, Black and Blue". I guess this means the Ruby, Mocha, Ebony and Sapphire. As I know they are pretty high maintenance inks, so not sure if I'll try them though...
