  1. This collection has been made in an intensive attempt to find the most ideal and complete shades of brown color fountain pen inks over the internet and as long as writing with a medium size fountain pen is what I'm concerned of, the "infinity symbol" on a regular paper is the thing I've considered saving these samples. I've also benchmarked the index card samples for those which were not available in infinity sample. All the top-rated fountain pen inks – even those which are not mentioned here probably for the lack of a quality brown ink – have been taken into account. ~ Here's t
  2. Reportedly, Private Reserve is one of the companies that paved the way to the overabundance of ink colors we have now, as early on there were mostly the basic inks available, such as basic blue-black, red, green, turquoise, brown, black, and blue. PR inks come in a multitude of different hues. The original creator and owner of the ink company passed away, and the company is now under new ownership and management. I personally became very interested in Private Reserve Avocado a while ago, after seeing its fantastic color range on some others' reviews when used for drawing. Behind its very

Ebony Blue has been on my radar for a while. I love dark teal inks, but I'm usually pretty picky about them in person. Ebony Blue is a kind of turquoise mixed with black, and
  4. I've been testing both ink samples and inexpensive Chinese pens. Yesterday I put some Private Reserve Lake Placid Blue into a Wing Sung 6359, and today I inked a Moonman 600S with some Pilot Iroshizuku Asa-Gao. I wasn't really thinking about them being similar colours. I've been working my way through the various Private Reserve blues, and today something reminded me that I'd been meaning to look at Asa-Gao. I was amazed to find the product of these two pen-and-ink combos to be virtually identical. And so I did an off-the-cuff side-by-side comparison on a page in an A6 Leuchtturm 1917. Y
  5. Private Reserve Ink was founded by Terry W. Johnson and Susan Schube in the workroom of Avalon Jewelers/Gallery in Zionsville, IN, as an addition to the fountain pen department. Terry's vision was simple... "Why not have fountain pen ink in a rainbow of colors to expand the bounds of writing beyond standard black, blue, red and green." That's what's written on their internet site. My experience with their inks is ambigous: I like most colors, but the inks I've tried weren't best behaved (Orange Crush, Shoreline Gold caused nib crud; Hor Bubble Gum is PINK and it stains everything).

  7. Hello FPN! I'm a 17 year old guy from Michigan and I've recently become enamored with fountain pens. I've mustered up enough money to buy two Lamy Safari's (one of which unfortunately someone decided to steal from me at school) and a Joy with a 1.5 italic for calligraphy as well as a bottle of Private Reserve Avacado. However, I'm looking to buy another ink or two (probably more later on), and some other pens once I eventually get some money. Since I picked up the first one a few months ago I haven't been able to stop writing. (An added benefit is that I'm writing more notes in class and

    Private Reserve "blue Suede"

    I don't usually put an ink's name in quotation marks, but honestly, straight out of the bottle, I have no idea how Private Reserve could call this ink a blue and not blue-green at best. I suppose "Blue-Green Suede" lacks a certain…something, but not accuracy.

    Private Reserve: Invicible Blue

It is interesting that while writing the ink is dark blue, which dries up and shines. Very interesting color. Currently I use it every day. I'm impressed. Clerical and technical values ​​are also good. I would recommend a particular account of its waterproof! I highly recommend.

    My Inks - 8 Month Fade Test

    I must partially apologize. I no longer have a scanner. I have a camera, but no light box as of yet. I am working on that.

  12. (This was penned with one of the inexpensive, high performance flex pens I am working on. If this kind of thing interests you, send me a PM, or fill out my poll.) I've always loved this ink for its performance on cheap, thin papers, and for its bright pink sheen. Shading requires a sensitive flex nib, or some kind of broad or italic. I'll say this: I frequently fight with myself over the use of this ink, mainly, not to use it all the time. It's too special to me. But then again, man lebt nur einmal. (One lives but once...)
  13. Here are the next batch of 20 bleach swatch tested Private Reserve inks in the blues and purples range. Of note, there are 2 Mindnight Blues with the second one being the fast dry option. Since my my first post I have done some digging on this particular brand. This a quote from Jordan, posted in August 2016, who is a member of the Fountain Pen Network: “The man (Terry W. Johnson) behind Private Reserve passed away recently, and he failed to properly document his knowledge before passing. His family has tried their best to keep the business running, but has had persistent quality issues, cau

    Private Reserve- Velvet Black

    Private Reserve is a US-based artisan ink company, originally an addition to the fountain pen department of Avalon Jewelers/Gallery. Most PR inks feature being highly saturated/concentrated, neutral pH, lubricated, drying crazily slow, of reasonable price and with a cheap looking(IMO...). First, let's take a look at it's box and bottle: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/PRVB01_zpsx6nbka7v.jpg The bottle shape reminds me of that of acrylic paint here in Taiwan. At first glance, it doesn't look like something you'd expect to find in a gallery/ FP store, but in an art sup

Terry's vision was simple... "Why not have fountain pen ink in a rainbow of colors to expand the bounds of writing beyond standard black, blue, red and green." That's what's written on their internet site. Hot Bubble Gum was sent to me by Cyber6, who - I believe - find it enjoyable to torment me with scary colors. This ink is simply scary. I hate everything about it: the color and the fact it's almost impossible to

    Private Reserve - Ebony Blue

    Private Reserve is a US-based artisan ink company, originally an addition to the fountain pen department of Avalon Jewelers/Gallery. Most PR inks feature being highly saturated/concentrated, neutral pH, lubricated, drying crazily slow, of reasonable price and with a cheap looking(IMO...). Ebony Blue is one of the PR ink that is inaccurately named and labeled---the name suggests it being "blue" and the label is also a grayish Prussian blue. However, its color is in no way, blue.

    Private Reserve Ink

    I have noticed some retailers are no longer stocking Private Reserve, and several members are concerned where to get their favorite colors. A&D Penworx is going to continue stocking Private Reserve. We do not have all of their colors in stock. If there is a color you would like to see us carry, I will be placing an order for more ink at the end of January. I am asking the community to take a look at my website, and let me know if you have a special request. Please indicate bottle or cartridge in your request. Please reply to this thread or PM me your request. I will let you k
  22. Hello FPN I was going through my inventory of ink that I bought and never used and decided to give them away instead of pouring them down the sink. I would like to find a new home for the below inks since I will probably never use them since I have way to many. Just to let you know, you must pick up the ink/s since I will not ship them. Also, you must bring your own containers to hold the ink since I transferred all my inks to empty Iroshizuku ink bottles. Here is what I have so far: (1) Diamine Majestic Blue (2) Diamine Washable Blue (2) Diamine Florida Blue (2) Private Reserve DC Su

  24. Do you ever find yourself in awe of a particular pen and ink combination? As if the ink was made for the pen and is the only thing that brings out its full potential. In my experience it's not a very common happen stance. Even rarer still is the perfect pen ink combo that seems to write well on just about any kind of paper. For me I found this combination in a full size black aerometric Parker 51 made in Canada. After doing a full restoration the pen came out looking like new. Moving on to the ink. The ink is Private Reserve DC Super Show Blue. I have tons of ink both new and vintage but I

If you'd like to take a look, click here. The giveaway is also only available through that site. Click here for more details. Yellow just happens to be my favorite color. However, it is also notoriously hard to read under light, and therefore is not often used for pen ink; although, given that yellow is my favorite color, I had to try it out. So, I decided to pick up a bottle of Private Reserve Buttercup, and I was
