    Sailor Manyo Nekoyanagi

    SAILOR MANYO NEKOYANAGI Sailor created another line of inks, the Manyo line. The inspiration for this line of inks are flowers found in the Manyoshu, an ancient collection of Japanese poems. The inks are presented in lovely square glass bottles and contain 50ml of inks. While the caps appear to be plastic, they are faceted for ease of opening. The opening of the bottle is 25mm in diameter and should fit most fountain pens. Now to the fun stuff! I first saw a review of this ink at mountainofinks.com (https://www.mountainofink.com/blog/sailor-nekoyanagi)

  3. Recently, I acquired several samples of Taccia Ink. Taccia Ink is newly developed in California, but made in Japan by experienced ink makers. There are 13 colors that are vibrant and pleasurable. The inspiration for the colors comes from the "Japanese way of seeing colors in a pure, honest and innocent way". The bottles are similar to Sailor bottles, but I do not know if they have the pen filler insert since I have not purchased a bottle yet. (Photo compliments of Vanness Pens) This is a lovely ink that is a well saturated red that goes from a medium violet red to an inte

    Waterman's Patrician Purple

    I like old ink (and pens) This is not a secret Why? Because when vintage ink was made, it had to WORK. Period. It wasn't boutique or eccentric. Fountain pens were PENS, not bling (ok, some were bling, but they still had to function as pens, without fail!)So badly behaving ink was an impediment to writing!People were FAR less likely to tolerate misbehaviour, be it bleeding, feathering, clogging of pens, etc. Think of it this way:What do you do when you are FORCED by circumstance to use a ballpoint, and then that ballpoint doesn't work within the first 5 seconds or so?That's right, you throw i
  5. Ink Review : Diamine Händel (Music Collection) Pen: Lamy Safari, M-nib Paper: Rhodia N°16 notepad 80 gsm Review London, summer of 1727. “I have been commissioned to write an anthem for the coronation ceremony of my benefactor Prince George – but what to use as a theme? Now, while attending mass in Westminster Abbey, my eye is drawn to the minister’s vestments. A whirlpool of dusty red and purple shades in the muted light of the cathedral. Ah… this setting inspires my muse. I see the theme of my anthem now… Zadok the Priest anointing King Solomon. Yes… that will be it.” In 2015 Di
  6. Winter Miracle was by far the standout for me from the Diamine Inkvent calendar, and now that they're going to be available in 50 mL bottles, I'm sorely tempted to buy a bottle. But I don't have many large ink bottles, and before I commit, I'd like to see if there are similar inks that are worth trying out first. I don't care that much about the blue shimmer aspect of Winter Miracle, so mostly I'm looking for recommendations for your favorite deep purple inks with crazy yellow/green sheen and, if possible, how you think they compare to Diamine Inkvent's Winter Miracle. From what I've see

    Diamine Vivaldi (Music Collection)

    Very nice ink, that has been reviewed before. Colorful, yet subdued enough to be used at work. I made a mistake in not having enough ink in it to start the review, so the review is a bit two colored. The first part, seems a bit dryish, when the ink was nearly over. When I filled it, it was very wet, and you can see the sudden change to a dark color. Towards the end of the page it evens out to a more realistic shade. I'm using a 0.6 mm JoWo stub, that is not overly wet, I think. Thanks to all the other reviewers before me to make me aware of this ink, so I got a sample. Will likely buy it on

    Pif Review: Noodlers N. African Violet

    Here's another amberleadavis special. http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/7715/9033/4330/African_Violet_001-640p.jpg Forgot to indicate this is Rhodia Dot paper... Chroma seems like a single dye component.... http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/5915/9033/4331/African_Violet_Chroma_001-640p.jpg Pretty color, again suitable for spring, and this is the only tested PIF ink which seems at least a bit water-resistant. I don't have many purple or violet inks, but North African Violet seems similar to J Herbin's Violette Pensee. Which stains nothing. Wonder why none of my sc
  9. Hello dear FPNers, We have a common enemy. An enemy who is obsessive to take out what we have in our bank accounts or even what we got in our purses. A decisive, a talented, a perfectionist, a world wide known enemy who keeps releasing some magnificent items which we really don't need to but have to buy. Please welcome, Montblanc Le Petit Prince The Planet - Rose Burgundy: It is part of Le Petit Prince The Planet collection. It has the standard 50 ml cube-shaped bottle of Montblanc. It is freshly released. As far as I see, it is not claimed to be "limited edition", but it seems

    Some Purple Inks

    I like writing in purple and wanted to expand my current ink collection (I have J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune and Nemosine Alpha Centauri), so I recently bought some samples to try. I thought I'd share the quick writing I did to compare the colors. I used 3 pens, dipped the nibs in the ink, then rinsed and dried the nibs a little before switching colors. So the colors may not look as they would if the pen were filled properly. Paper is Tomoe River. Photos were taken under artificial lighting. I didn't attempt to do any color correcting.

    Kobe #18 Sannomiya Pansy

    Ink Review: Nagasawa Kobe #18 Sannomiya Pansy Overall Impressions: The color does make me think of the dark purple in a pansy. It has very nice shading. Shading: Yes, from medium purple to very dark purple. Very dramatic looking with a big nib. Sheen: There was little bit with a wet nib, on the outlines where ink pools. Flow: Good Water Resistance: Low, leaves behind a pinkish-purple line. Ease of Cleaning: Seemed easy to clean out of the pens. Nib Creep: None seen. Tomoe River Paper: Dry Time: around 15-20 sec Water Resistance: Leaves behind a pinkish outline. Writing Samples: A little bit

    Rohrer & Klingner Cassia

    Ink: Rohrer & Klingner Cassia Overall Impressions: A vibrant purple. I like the way it shades. The ink seems well-behaved; it doesn't take overly long to dry, and it flowed well in the pens I tried it in. Seems like a great everyday purple with some flair. Shading: Yes, with bigger nibs on most paper. On Tomoe River paper, I saw some shading even with an EF nib. The color ranged from a medium purple to a dark, eggplanty purple. Sheen: I didn't see any with normal writing, but there was a slight sheen in the drawing where I layered lines. Water Resistance: It is not water-resistant. Ease
  13. TAG Kyoto - kyo-no-oto - sakuranezumi TAG is a stationary shop in Kyoto (Japan) that produces some interesting soft watercolour-style inks. With the kyo-no-oto series they produce a line of inks that replicates traditional Japanese dye colours. According to available only info, the manufacturing process of the kyo-no-oto inks follows traditional dying techniques dating back to the Heian era between the years 794 and 1185. The inks come in 40 ml bottles, packaged in luxurious thick paper with a texture that feels like heavy watercolour paper. In this review I take a closer
  14. When I tried Diamine Eclipse the first time, I just loved the color. It was such a unique blackish purple. And it seemed to work pretty well in my pens. So I started using it in one of my daily carries. Well, I've been using it for about six months now, and, while it certainly isn't the type of ink that would ruin a pen or anything like that, I just have gotten so I don't love the way it flows. In comparison to waterman or iroshizuku, it seems relatively 'dry' to me. And, well, I'm tired of it. But I still love the color. Has anyone come across another ink with a similar color?

    Robert Oster 1980S - Dusky Pink

    Robert Oster 1980s - Dusky Pink Robert Oster is an Australian ink maker that is well-known for its unique range of colours. With this mini-series he gives us a conglomeration of colours inspired by the anything goes world of the 1980s. These inks fit my personal preferences: muted pastel-type colours with great shading. In this review I take a closer look at Dusky Pink, a dim muted purple with a definite vintage feel. The ink feels sub-lubricated in dry pens like the Lamy Safari. Saturation is very low here, but there is still enough contrast with the page to make for
  16. Hello people of FPN! It’s been over a year since I’ve last posted here, I’ve been busy with my first year and a half of college. In the last month or so, though, I’ve started lurking around reading the forums again, and I’ve been wanting to write another review. I just needed to find a pen that was the right balance of inexpensive and interesting, and luckily I found just the thing. As I was browsing the shelves of my college’s bookstore, procrastinating studying for my final exams, the blister pack these pens came in caught my eye. Zebra fountain pens. “An easier fountain pen” the box pr
  17. A new calligraphy ink by Manuscript with extreme shimmer. Definitely not something to use in the office but it looked interesting to write some cards with in the upcoming holiday season. This ink is clearly not meant for long notes or letters. A very dark violet or purple with heavy gold shimmer. I find it a hard to use ink. OK to use in a fountain pen like the TWSBI ECO with a stub nib, but a dip pen made the ink feather and spread, even on Clairefontaine or Crown Mill Vellum paper. On Lalo Vergé it was much better. The ink is very wet, causing considerable show-through and even some bleed-
  18. Rohrer & Klingner is an old German company, established in Leipzig in 1907, reputed to be one of the best ink manufacturers in the world(yet at the same time keeping a low profile....or at least seems so IMO). Most of their inks are well-behaved, relatively cheap, and with steady quality. Among their 18 regular colors, two are iron-gall inks, and Scabiosa is one of them. The word "Scabiosa" refers to a genus in the honeysuckle family of flowering plants. FIY, here are some beautiful Scabiosa flowers( picture credits: google search) http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/S
  19. I love dark purple ink. Currently I have my Pilot Custom 823 inked up with Poussière de Lune but I almost run out. Im looking into Montblanc Lavender Purple now. I wonder whats the difference? Herbin Poussière de Lune is great for me. Since its dark enough but still have some shade. It is quite nice to take academic notes with. I have the following questions: 1. Is Montblanc darker or lighter? 2. How does the inkflow compare? 3. Saturation? 4. Any side by side comparison? 5. Anything else you would like to elaborate on. Thank you all!
  20. Papier Plume - Mardi Gras Indians Purple (New Orleans Collection) Papier Plume is a stationary shop in New Orleans, that's been getting some attention lately on this forum with their "New Orleans Inks", that celebrate the rich colours and history of the city. One of their inks in this series is Mardi Gras Indians Purple, a very nice grey-puple ink that I immediately took a liking to. Mardi Gras Indians Purple is a dark purple ink that looks surprisingly good on paper. Sometimes an ink instinctively appeals to you on first use ... that's what happened to me with this Papier Plume
  21. Inky folks: Looking for advice on choosing an ink. Your help will be greatly appreciated, and *will* result in a purchase! I’m nuts for purple inks. I’ve got way more of the stuff than is rational. And, until recently, I’d sworn off buying any more, because, really, I’m unlikely to go through my current stock in my lifetime. It’s that bad. But, now, I’ve decided to break my self-imposed prohibition, because I’m dying to try one (or more) of the super-sheeny inks that have come available in recent years. Other than a few conventional inks that had some sheen as an incidental property, I h
  22. Rohrer & Klingner has recently released a "2018 limited edition" ink called Aubergine. As a big fan of their inks, I think they deserve more recognition for their wonderful inks. Solferino remains my top purple/magenta/violet ink with its retina-searing brightness and vibrancy. I've bought a bottle of this new Aubergine and I like it very much. Aubergine comes in a cardboard tube packaging and their regular understated bottle. I like their bottles because they are functional. The ink itself is a low-key yet gorgeous purple that leans to the blue side but never so much as to become a blur

    Sailor Kobe Le Monet Violet

    This is a limited edition ink from Nagasawa Kobe, Monet Violet, to celebrate a Zurich Museum exhibition in Japan. One of the painting exhibited is a Monet's Water Lily Pond. Obviously the ink is violet, to replicate the colour of water lilies. PACKAGING This ink comes in a gorgeous box. http://s1.homezz.com/201503/5915/50375_z.jpg I unfolded the box and scanned it (and joined the two parts with software): http://s2.homezz.com/201503/5915/50369_o.jpg As you can see it's the box that attracts me and motivated my purchase. And the bottle, very pretty as well: http://s1.homezz.com/20

    Giovanni Gnocchi Ink

    Hello! I'm pretty much a beginner in the world of fountain pens and ink, and could use a bit of help. I have two bottles of ink from Giovanni Gnocchi. Both are 'new'/unopened. The smaller one, with red ink, has a few tiny bits floating in it. Is it still usable? The other bottle is a 250ml glass bottle with a cork stopper, still sealed with wax. I'm really eager to try the purple ink in it, but am worried about whether the ink will stay okay in there once opened. Would it be better to put it in a glass bottle with screw cap? Any info you might have about these inks in general would be
