    Purple Black

    Hello all! I am looking for suggestions for my first ink in my Lamy safari Dark lilac medium nib. I am looking for something that I can use professionally but something that has character! I looked at Diamine eclipse but it seems too black, then I looked at PR ebony purple but it seems to have mixed reviews...I was hoping for something with a little more purple. I prefer the bluish purple, not the ones that tend toward red. I am just reaching out to you because you have so much more experience than I do! Hoping someone can offer me some advise! So grateful!!

  3. Hey there! I am looking for inks which can be used in a professional setting but have a tiny bit of fun with them. For me, these inks should be very dark, so that by not taking a closer look you could mistake them for a blue or even black ink, but at a second glance you can see a tiny pop of color. So almost black, but with something extra. Some inks that could be used as examples: - Noodler's red-black - Mont Blanc British Racing Green - maybe Mont Blanc Albert Einstein I am happy to hear your suggestions, as I am not that knowledgable about all the inks yet, and I am sure you have many good ideas.
  4. Hi, Mini introduction first: After recently picking up (or rather buying) a couple of cheap fountain pens, I have had great use of these forums, and kind off rediscovered writing. It is an amazing feeling to actually write something by hand again. It has even given me the mental kick in the but to get writing on an idea for a paper I have had in the pipeline for a long time, although that is, for practical purposes, done electronically. To the question: I am looking for a dark green, professional looking ink. After reading in this subforum, I decided on the Diamine Sherwood Green - and I absolutely love it! The shading is wonderful yet discrete, and the flow is good in the Jintao X750 with very little feathering even on cheap paper. A collegue hinted the other day, though, that it might not be dark enough to sign official outgoing letters. I kind of agree. So I am looking for something darker. The problem is, after looking at the samples on Goulet Pens, I can't really find any. Private Reserve Ebony Green looked up to it, but after reading reviews of it here, it seems no darker than Diamine Sherwood in the writiing samples. Faber-Castell Moss Green looks like a "maybe", but it surely is expensive for a maybe. And that's about it (I don't really count Noodler's Zhivago as a green.) except for De Atramentis Black Edition - Black-Green, which is sold out and doesn't look THAT dark. Does anyone have any experience with a darker ink than Diamine Sherwood that they have compared to Sherwood on the same paper? I was hoping I didn't have to start mixing inks so soon, even though I was planning on trying it eventually. Maybe a black blue would look good mixed with the sherwood? Or even brown? Any suggestions after reading this long, rambling first post?
