  1. Here's one of the lesser-known Baystate inks, Baystate Cranberry. It was a really big disappointment, considering how much I like Baystate Blue. If you need a similar color that's actually brighter (punchier?), I definitely recommend Diamine Cerise. It's an all-around better ink. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/537/H1E0Jp.jpg
  2. I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Carnation from the Flowers Gift Set. I think it's well named as the ink is certainly a close copy of what I would call carnation pink. Some might call this baby pink. It's an unusual pale pink colour, and I found I didn't have anything similar to compare it with which was a shame. J Herbin Rouge Bourgogne was much too dark. Despite the fact that I had this ink in these 2 pens for several days before doing this review, some users might think it looks like a watered down red ink. In fact it really doesn't write like a watered down ink. As usual for a Diamine ink, it's a well behaved, reasonably saturated ink. It shows slight shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the 2 Lamy Nexx M pens I used. This ink exhibits no showthrough and no bleedthrough on my Xerox ColorPrint paper. That's not surprising as it's quite a pale colour. If you're looking for a pale pink ink, it might be worth trying out a sample. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and the nibs used were a M and a stub, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry. That's quite normal on this paperIt flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests and changed over uncapped pens.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or cartridges.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price

    Ink Review: Diamine Hope Pink

    I have heard many good comments about Diamine Hope Pink so I thought it was time I tried a sample. I like quite a few pink inks, although many of those I write with are darker than Hope Pink. So I was interested to see what it was like. It's what I would call a bright pink. Maybe a bit brighter than I thought it would be. I like it very much. I also have Cerise to review, and that's another pink. It performed really well in both of my Lamy's, neither too wet nor too dry. It flowed well, and I experienced no problems with it at all. Quite surprisingly it dried very quickly even on my smooth 100gsm paper. That would normally suggest it might be a dry ink, but it didn't feel at all dry when I was writing with it. On this occasion, no matter what I tried, I couldn't get Photoshop to exactly match the pink colour of Hope Pink. The scan looks very slightly more purple than the writing on the paper. This isn't a waterproof ink, but it has reasonable water resistance. The water was on the grid for about 2 minutes.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny, smooth surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink only took 3-5 secs to dry. That's really quick on this paper.It flows very well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts despite leaving the pen uncapped while I did the swab tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic refill bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.

    Ink Review: Diamine Scarlet

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Scarlet A bright pink ink from the standard range. ‘Scarlet’ might make you think of bright red berries, but this Scarlet ink is definitely pink. The colour band on the bottle label is pink. Imagine this Scarlet as a raspberry colour. Pink inks are notoriously difficult to reproduce online, and I’ve seen some online swabs and writing with Scarlet that look quite different to my sample. So, as usual, I have colour corrected my writing to resemble as closely as possible the shade that I can see on the paper. This messed up all of the comparison inks, so I corrected all of those separately as well as I could. Flow Rate: Good. Not too wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.Lubrication: Good with the M nib on several different papers, a bit more would have been nice with the Safari F nib.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Good.Shading Potential: Some shading seen.Sheen: None seen, although it might be a sheener if I splatted an ink spill.Show-Through:Rhodia BlocCiAK by InTempoField NotesCheaper generic 80 & 90gsm printer papers & lined pads.Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Only a little seen on Field Notes.Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days - easy clean-upStaining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap. Two hand washes required with liquid soap.Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof, but shows reasonable water resistance.Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.

    Ink Review - Bril Laurel Rose

    As mentioned in my previous reviews for the inks, Bril inks are one of the most used and admired inks in India. Bril has been in existence since 1964 and are based out of Bangalore in India.The review is about the BRIL LAUREL ROSE which is my second ink review from Bril. This review is simultaneously posted on my blog which is more detailed. Link to blog is here : INK REVIEW Bril Inks can be purchased from their Webpage as they have launched the webshop recently with nationwide shipping. Bril inks come in following colors: Royal Blue Green Red Laurel Rose Turquoise Blue Violet Black My earlier Ink reviews are listed as below: BRIL ROYAL BLUE CAMLIN SCARLET RED CHELPARK BLACK Also I would like to add that i got the inks as a gift from one of my friend and fountain pen enthusiast, Rakshit Pai. Bril Laurel Rose Bril Laurel Rose is a wonderful color ink which comes in 60 ml glass bottle and is priced at Rs. 18 (USD 0.28). INK SPLASH Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Splash on BILT Matrix Paper – Angled View Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Splash on BILT Matrix Paper – Top View Angled view shows the the sheen ink gives apart from the variation in shades. DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Drop COLOR MATCH Bril Laurel Rose – Color Match WRITING SAMPLES Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on BILT Matrix paper Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on Century copy paper Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on Camlin Kokuyo Notebook INK SWABS Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Swab on BILT Matrix paper ( From top to bottom – 1 to 3 swabs) Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Swab on Century copy paper ( From top to bottom – 1 to 3 swabs) PEN SCRIBBLE Bril Laurel Rose – Pen Scribble on BILT Matrix Paper WATERPROOF TEST Bril Laurel Rose – Waterproof Test I felt that ink has decent water resistance. As ink did not fade away too much even after running the paper under tap water for complete one minute. Rather paper started to give away but not the Ink. Bril Laurel Rose – Waterproof Test INK DRYING TIMES Ink drying times were tested on the Bilt Matrix paper and pen used was Jinhao X-450. Bril Laurel Rose -Ink Drying test BLOW-UP WRITING SAMPLES Bril Laurel Rose – Zoomed in Writing Sample You can see from the above zoomed in writing sample that there is certain bit of shading in the Ink. CONCLUSION I like the pinkish color of Bril Inks. I have used this ink in lot of pens and have realised that this ink stains the converter but gets washed out after using ammonia flush. Still i recommend not use this ink in demonstrators. Must buy at the price.
  6. Here's my first review of the Diamine Music Collection inks, all of which are awesome in my book. Diamine Handel is a soft, red-leaning purple ink with an attractive green sheen on heavier deposits. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/912/5lYrjg.jpg

    Ink Review: Diamine Claret

    My latest ink sample from Diamine is Diamine Claret Diamine Claret is an ancient ink from Diamine. It's been around for a long time. Bearing in mind Diamine celebrated their 150th anniversary last year, when they first manufactured this ink, real claret was used to make it. However, there are now many rules about what inks can be made from, so Diamine have had to recreate it from available dyes, to try to get as close as they could to the original colour. So if any of you used it many years ago, you may have noticed a change. The colour really surprised me, as I expected Claret to be a darker red. I looked at my pen wondering if it wasn't properly clean when I filled it, but I knew it was. I'm fastidious about that. This ink is a full blown raspberry pink shade that leans blue. Not that I'm suggesting it's any the worse for that. It's reasonably saturated, and exhibits plenty of shading. It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping with both of my pens on several different papers. The flow is very good and so is it's lubrication at the nib. Although the flow feels slightly dryer than some of the inks I've recently tried, in that I couldn't see wet ink glistening on the line above the one I was writing, it didn't feel particularly dry. The dry time was quite quick and there were no smears after it was dry. It has no water resistance at all. The red inky water spread very quickly. I didn't really have any inks that were the same colour to compare it against. The ones I have are either brighter, with even more blue, leaning more towards purple, or darker leaning more red. So it was an interesting colour to try out. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink,and shows no noticeable water resistance.Bearing in mind the review template is on thick paper with a shiny surface, and I used a Lamy M nib and a Lamy 1.1mm nib this ink took 16-17 secs to dry. No smear when dry.It exhibited good flow and lubrication and I found it well behaved to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did my swabs and dry time tests.It exhibited some show through and bleed through on cheap paper.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.
  8. My latest ink sample sent to me from Diamine is Diamine Flamingo Pink I received a PM from 'Thelonelyinkwell' asking me if I had a sample of Sailor Renoir pink ink that I could send him. Sadly, I don't have that ink. However, it started me wondering if Flamingo Pink might be a similar type of colour. This ink is a bright salmon pink shade that leans slightly towards the blue side of the spectrum. It's reasonably saturated, and exhibited plenty of shading in my tests. It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping with both of my pens on several different papers. The flow is very good and so is it's lubrication at the nib. Although the flow feels slightly dryer than some of the inks I've recently tried, in that I couldn't see wet ink glistening on the line above the one I was writing, it didn't feel particularly dry. The dry time was quite quick and there were no smears after it was dry. It has no water resistance at all. The pink inky water spread very quickly. I didn't really have any inks that were the same colour to compare it against. The ones I have are more blue, although Diamine Carnation was the only pink ink I have that is similar. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink,and shows no noticeable water resistance.I used a Lamy M nib and a Lamy 1.1mm nib and this ink took 15-16 secs to dry on my Rhodia Dot Pad 80gsm paper. No smear when dry.It exhibited good flow and lubrication and I found it well behaved to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did my swabs and dry time tests.It exhibited some show through on cheap copy paper.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.

    Montblanc Pink (Cartridge)

    Review of Montblanc Pink cartridge. MB Pink is a pretty bright pink that has good flow and offers nice shading - some on copy, more on good - along with oodles of gold sheen. The ink starts right up in both tested pens even after many days of just sitting. The color is darker and redder in the wetter, thicker line of the Pelikano due to more sheen being deposited; it was darker initially in the VFM, too, but once the ink that had sat in the feed gave way to fresh ink from the cart, the color brightened considerably. There were the merest hints of the sheen on the copy paper but the BnR showed a fair amount from the Sheaffer and copious amounts from the Pelikano (rather like the Lamy Coral in my P460). The color is similar to the Sailor Clear Candy Pink; the Sailor is brighter than the MB in the CC MF pen but slightly darker than then the MB in the Waterman JIF fine, again due to more sheen from the wetter JIF. Here's the scan of the review form: Here's a crop of the sheen from the P67 on the BnR (lol, just noticed I wrote P64 in the sample): And from the Sheaffer; the sheen is heavier on the first words as the pen had been sitting, the next lines are more representative. As well, the color in the photos, especially here from the Sheaffer is more accurate than the scan. Would I use this on a regular basis? Hmm. I find the Sailor a bit more 'happy' (especially in the lighter line of the very fine CC pen) and I'm curious to perhaps try the MB in a fine nib, like a JIF. For now, I'll leave it in the Sheaffer - this was the one I thought was going to be a sparkly bright red that turned out to be more of a dusty rose color, which actually complements the ink quite well. Serendipity at work.
  10. Here's a quick written mini review of Sailor Clear Candy Pink ink cartridge. This is a bright, cheerful pink and, while the color in the scan is fairly close, it's a little too heavy - the actual color is more delicate. The line, also, is too heavy in the scan; even with such a fine line there's some really nice shading, much of which is lost in the scan. Flow is good, and on the cheap copy at work there was no feathering or show-through to speak of. What really surprised me, though, is that there is gold sheen, too, apparent even with this very fine nib. I was even more excited when I saw this. I've ordered more cartridges and another Sailor pen with, hopefully a slightly broader nib (F, as opposed to MF) to maybe bring out the sheen more; I could always try the fude nib again, on the good paper. I got my Montblanc Pink carts but am still waiting on the Pelikan pink carts (and a pen to use the MB in); when I get everything together, I'll do a comparison. Also have Shaeffer pinks coming, as well. Here's the pen, btw.

    Ink Review: Diamine Cerise

    In my latest set of samples I deliberately chose two pinks, so that I could compare them. I was confident that when I reviewed Hope Pink, I really liked it. I'm now reviewing Diamine Cerise and I'm not sure which one I like more. Todays review of Cerise shows that it isn't a purply pink with lots of shading like Hope Pink. Cerise is a lovely 'pure' pink, more saturated than Hope Pink, and it also behaved extremely well in both of my Lamy pens. Interestingly, it took longer to dry than Hope Pink, and it showed through on my 100gsm paper. It's still a bright pink, in no way subtle or boring. It's very bright and cheery. The cherries that I buy are a darker colour than this though. This isn't a waterproof ink, and it isn't particularly water resistant. The water was on the grid for about 15 minutes.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny, smooth surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink took 11-12 secs to dry.It flows very well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts despite leaving the pen uncapped while I did the swab tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic refill bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.
  12. My latest ink is Diamine Flowers Gift Set: Bougainvillea I decided to review a brightly coloured ink today. It's Bougainvillea, one of the Flowers Gift Set inks. All of the Flowers Gift Set inks are bright colours, and this one is no exception. It's a bright carmine pink. Great fun for Spring. I'm looking ahead hopefully. Bougainvillea has very good flow and lubrication. I had no problems with it while I was writing. It felt quite wet and I could see it glistening all along the lines as I wrote. It really suited my Lamy Nexx well.​Although this isn't a waterproof ink, it shows quite good water resistance, as do many Diamine inks.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink took 17-19 secs to dry. That's slower than some other inks I've reviewed recently.It flows through the pen very well and lubricates the nib very well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in the Flowers Gift Set of 10 x 30ml glass bottles, and you can now buy 30ml refills in plastic bottles.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
  13. Pelikan Edelstein "Ink of the Year 2012" Turmaline. From the GIA: "Tourmaline’s colors have many different causes. It’s generally agreed that traces of iron, and possibly titanium, induce green and blue colors. Manganese produces reds and pinks, and possibly yellows." According to Pelikan, their Edelstein Turmaline is a plum coloured ink. I would call it pink. Some might call it dark pink, and some might call it bright pink. It is a lovely shade of pink for writers who like to use pink ink. It's very well behaved, very smooth to write with, flows well and lubricates the nib well. It's a high quality ink. This is what Pelikan say about it: "Every 50 ml high-value glass flacon is unique. The rich weight and soft curves make it a pleasure to hold in your hands. It‘s an ornament on every desk... Eye candy in every detail, a perfect gift for yourself and those you love. Please note our always changing Ink of the Year, which brings a fresh and modern Edelstein Ink color to you – limited to one year only. Product description Exclusive Ink Collection in a precious 50 ml flacon. The Edelstein Ink Collection comprises twelve brilliant colors with a special ingredient that ensures extra smooth writing and care for the fountain pen. The German word Edelstein translates as gem stone, and each color corresponds to the beautiful coloring of a gem." This isn't a waterproof or archival ink. Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib was a Fine, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry. It flows wet, and lubricates the nib very well. It's such a smooth writing experience. It is currently available in beautiful 50ml glass flacons and cartridges It is available from many B&M shops and online retailers worldwide, but is a one year Limited Edition.
  14. Here's a BRIGHT pink ink from Diamine. It's very similar to Noodler's Baystate Cranberry, but much better behaved and even brighter. It's definitely an interesting ink, though I personally prefer the color and look of Diamine Coral. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/913/JBu0r0.jpg
  15. I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Deep Magenta. I would call this a bright Fuschia pink ink. My idea of deep magenta would be a darker shade than this. It looks much better in writing than in the cotton bud swabs I took. I've always quite liked J Herbin Rose Cyclamen, and this is a similar colour. If the swabs are anything to go by Rose Cyclamen may be slightly more saturated. I remember De Atramentis Dianthus being very similar to this because I once had a sample, but sadly I don't have any left. As usual for a Diamine ink, it's a well behaved, reasonably saturated ink. It doesn't show much shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the Waterman Phileas and Lamy Nexx M pens I used. Sorry, but for some reason they were both stub nibs. I made the mistake of filling 2 pens with similar nibs. This ink exhibits slight showthrough but no bleedthrough on my Conqueror paper. My guess is that this would showthrough much more on cheaper paper. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink, but it seems quite resistant.Bearing in mind the paper I use is quite absorbent, and the nib used was a stub, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry. That's a long time on this paper.It flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and comparisons with other inks.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or cartridges.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price

    Ink Review: Diamine Amaranth

    I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Amaranth. I would call it a bright, slightly purplish, pink. It's a very good colour match to the Amaranth flower. Sorry about my poor drawing representation, but the flower is that sort of shape. If you compare this ink with Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline, you could almost call this a slightly muted or toned-down version. I plan to review Turmaline very soon. Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib used at that time was a 1.1, this ink took 11-12 secs to dry.It flows through the pen well but feels drier on the page than some other Diamine inks. Some may call it slightly chalky. Especially as I have reviewed Bilberry recently which is wet. It still seems to lubricate the nib quite well, although I could hear some feedback. I saw no skips or hard starts from either of the pens that both stayed uncapped while I swapped and changed, and did swabs and comparisons with other inks.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic refill bottles. It's also available in cartridges.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price
  17. Here's a very unique ink from Noodler's named after the first emperor of China. It's slightly on the acidic side (while most every other Noodler's ink has a neutral pH), and meant to look like terra-cotta (I suppose; it seems too bright for that to me). It also glows under UV, but isn't terribly dramatic. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/910/QoGL6d.jpg

    In The Pink

    Still loving my pink ink. This is my writing kit ready for the start of National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo for short. Rose Tendresse ink, pink Lamy Safari pen and a pink and silver notebook. I plan to write longhand during the day and type and upload in the evening, at least that's the plan that's in my head http://i866.photobucket.com/albums/ab228/Mariella_Moon/PinkforNaNoWriMo_zps35231023.jpg

    Toucan Magenta

    Review of a sixth ink in the Toucan ink range from Tintex (Dye Manufacturers of Australia) - Toucan Magenta. A bright-ish pink - comparisons to Pilot vpens and Platinum Preppy hopefully will give a point of reference! I don't mind this ink - but don't tend to use pink very often in my line of work... http://i.imgur.com/SQUMYgA.jpg
