    Mold In A Fresh Bottle Of Ink?

    I recently purchased my second bottle of Diamine Poppy Red from a reputable source that sells over Amazon, and I have had it on hand for about a month while I've been finishing up the last few drops of my first bottle. When I opened up the fresh bottle today, I was immediately hit with a strong scent resembling mildew (mold). I know some inks can have a certain "musk" to them (such as Diamine Imperial Purple), but my first bottle of Poppy Red had no discernible smell. I should also note that the new ink is much darker in appearance (more opaque) as seen in the bottle than my first bottle of Poppy Red. I compared samples of the new bottle's contents to some from my old bottle, and the colors matched up on paper. It could be possible that there was a bit extra of some ingredient put in my new batch that would darken the appearance and make it smell funny, but I'd rather play it safe until I know for sure. Thoughts?
  2. Okay, so I just bought a Jinhao 159 that came with a Goulet # 6 two-tone "M" nib and my plans are to use it for personal correspondence. Choices: Edelstein AVENTURINE Diamine POPPY RED Montblanc TOFFEE BROWN Waterman INTENSE BLACK I was thinking about Aventurine but a LONG letter in green sounds a bit much. OTOH, green is my favorite color and I like this one......but I STILL come back to it being overkill. Poppy Red is interesting because it is not that clownish or teacher's red, but it's STILL red. Hmmmmmmm MB toffee puts down a nice wet line and I like the color. The first pen I loaded it with had some issues, so I wonder if this may not be the way to go? W. Intense Black is another option, but black is black, right? I do have some Kon-Peki left, but a little of that goes a long way and I just emptied a pen with it. FINALLY, DA "Sherlock Holmes," but it seems pretty innocuous to me. Is the Green and/or RED too much of one thing or too little of another? Help a budding FP-lover out, will ya?

  4. Humble as opposed to the epic comparos found here! Still, might be of use to someone. Paper: HP laser 32lb, which is as nice as I read it would be. Iroshizuku fuyu gaki in Platinum Cool M nib.J Herbin orange indien in Parker sonnet with a beat up F nib. Deserves a better home.Pelikan Edelstein mandarin in Lamy Vista M nib.Diamine poppy red in Muji F nib.J Herbin 1670 rouge hematite in Lamy Vista F nib (over flowing with crud but hey, it flows). It looks darker and less red than on clairefontaine paper, more tyrian purple than blood. Colours look faithful at least on a macbook pro retina 13 except for Mandarin. Mandarin looks more like this: They are all distinct from each other and beautiful; I was worried fuyu gaki might be pink which I can't stand but it's definitely an orange with red undertones.
