  1. Hello Fellow FPNers - I'm in love with J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor, not only for its gorgeous teal color but for its shimmering qualities, its saturated color and its wetness. Can anyone recommend another ink that has all these qualities but is a blue ink, rather than teal? Must be saturated, not milky or muted.

    Pif Robert Oster Turquoise Review

    Only my second experience with a RO ink! This is a moderately thick, saturated turquoise that exhibits good shading, decent flow, but slightly problematic dry time for southpaws. I like it anyway. It also makes a good drawing ink, especially in an italic nib. Thanks once again to amberleadavis for the PIF! http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/5715/9019/0851/RO_Turquoise_001-640p.jpg The chroma twins show some separation into greens and blues. Which makes sense...it's turquoise! http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/3115/9019/0851/RO_Turquoise_Chroma_001-640p.jpg

    Can You Recommend A Blue Ink?

    A colleague showed me his Twsbi Eco and I was so impressed by the piston-filler concept, it re-kindled my love of fountain pens after a 4-year hiatus. Now I need a nice blue ink to go with it . I've been using Parker Quink permanent blue for most of my life and I love it. My other favourite ink is Waterman Florida blue (last bottle I purchased was in 2009 so I still use the old name in my head ). Looking for an ink that's slightly less "purple" and more "blue" than these, with the following qualities: Quick-drying (I'm left-handed) Wet/smooth feel of nib on paper (I currently use a Lamy EF nib) Saturated/strong colour. I don't like dilute inks that show shading (I dislike Quink washable blue and Pelikan 4001 Blue for this reason) Won't stain the polycarbonate barrel of the Twisbi (hence my hesitation to try anything by Noodler's) Won't fade over time (Quink washable blue was notorious for this, school notes would be grey by the time I needed to study from them a year later)Regarding the shade of blue, - something that's more light/blue than the Quink/Waterman, but far from torquise (I use it for work so it has to look "serious"). No darker colours - I'm not a fan of "murky" hues like Quink blue-black, much prefer pure blue or pure black.
  4. Can anyone recommend any saturated inks with good flow? I know mostly inks are either saturated and quite viscous, or very well flowing and much more wishy washy. I'm looking for saturated inks which also have good flow and and relatively easy to clean/ not damaging to fountain pens. The only one that comes close to me is Iroshizuku Take- Sumi, but I'm sure there must be an even darker black ink, which is still well behaved. Any recommendations? If they have good shading even better.
  5. I'm looking for an ink recommendation. Specifically, I want a very dark, BOLD blue ink. My favorite inks right now are: Noodler's Heart of Darkness, Diamine Majestic Blue, and a blend of Iroshizuku Kon-peki and Asa-go; that should give you a sense of my desire for bold colors. More specifically: I want a BOLD, dark colorIt should be closer to black than to blue but the blue should be reasonably visible. (I've tried Diamine Eclipse which is a close-to-black purple ink (IMO). I'd like the recommended ink to display the blue more than Eclipse displays the purple.)It should be darker than Diamine Majestic Blue (which I use and love)NO green or teal tints, no purple tint--genuinely blue tint onlyWaterfastness is not an issueShading and/or sheen are big bonuses but not requiredWetter inks preferred over dry inksNo iron gallWho can tell me what ink(s) I should be sampling? I have in mind to try Diamine 1894 Blue-Black; is that a good option? What else?

    Recommend A Dark Purple

    I would like a nice, dark, saturated purple, but don't know much about anything other than your blues and blacks. Does anyone make a purple-black ink? If so, who and is it any good? Otherwise, what is a nice dark purple? Thanks, Tom.

    Diamine Inks

    I've always tried to avoid highly-saturated inks. They seem to be more of a pest to clean out of my piston-fillers, I worry about long-term problems, and I tend to prefer more muted, traditional colours anyway. Diamine used to sell its inks in two ranges, a traditional and a modern range, and the latter tended to be the more saturated inks. Now that they have merged them into a single range, is there any way to tell which inks are less saturated and which are more?
