  1. https://www.jacquesherbin.com/en/shogun-by-kenzo-takada-k3-flacon-50ml.html Colour: Always presented as dark brown in the marketing images, and the manufacturer calls it “twilight-coloured”, but while the ink goes down brown-black, once it dries on Rhodia DotPad 80g/m² paper, it's nothing but charcoal and black, without any hint of brown that I can see. Flow: Rather wet (and you probably know I don't say that of inks very often) Shading: Limited to when the ink is laid down rather dry on Rhodia DotPad paper, and given that it's a wet ink, for ‘normal’ applications I don't think you'll see much shading manifest in handwriting. Sheen: None observed, even when laid down so heavily it starts to bleed through the paper. Shimmer: Quite a lot. Herbin says it's “fine red and gold glitter”, although I see red and cyan in the reflected light. Some of the red particles are really fine; after I left the bottle undisturbed for hours, when I dipped the Pilot steel nib carefully so as not to cause any movement, I could still see a few tiny flecks of red in the ink that gets picked up by nib. Once I turned the bottle over, the shimmer particles that had settled on the base of the bottle immediately started falling away; no clumping whatsoever, and shaking wasn't really required to get the particles to move away from the glass. Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia DotPad paper. Show-through: Between minimal and nil on Rhodia DotPad paper. Bleed-through: Only when I shaded and filled a square completely twice over, and probably damaged the paper's sizing/coating in the process (and the difference in the degree of bleed-through in the two squares, which I filled using different facets of the nib's tipping, attests to it). Drying time: Within 15 seconds, including where pen strokes intersected, except for heavy application of ink in for dot in the minuscule ‘j’ (and so probably ‘i’, and the full stop as well), where even after 45 seconds I can see the slightest hint of black being smeared. Water resistance: In terms of the black ink marks not being eradicated or eroded by water, resistance is high. However, when a water brush is applied, the run-off can make a complete mess of the area and render the written text difficult to read.

    Lists of PenBBS pigment and shimmer inks

    From the album: Translated third-party content

    This information on PenBBS inks was pretty difficult to find, not the least because the source material was presented as an image file that does not lend itself well to text searching; that it is written in (simplified) Chinese just makes it all that much harder for non-Chinese-speaking pen users, who cannot copy-and-paste the text, or have any hope of manually entering the text, into a language translation tool to make sense of it.

  3. "HERE IT IS: The Kyanite du Népal from our exclusive 1798 Anniversary Ink Collection available 06/21 [21st June] About the ink: Kyanite is bright blue and pulling toward turquoise. It is magnified thanks to a cloud of silver glitter for a powerful and elegant writing. Since the discovery of the famous mining region of Nepal, Kali Gandaki, Kyanite has been recognized as a noble mineral because of its similarities with the rich tones of sapphire." https://www.instagram.com/p/BxPo8LxDyiC/ And see here https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/bmajwk/this_years_j_herbin_1798_ink_kyanite_du_n%C3%A9pal/
  4. I've heard that the release date for these new inks is 4th November; Fountain Pen Day, so I'm posting separate reviews for them on here. I assume they will come in the same type of bottles as the previous set of shimmer inks, but I haven't seen the retail bottles yet. Currently I only have samples that Diamine very kindly sent me to test, and to review 'if I wanted to', but I've noticed that my samples don't need much shaking to mix the particles in, and the pens need very little shaking once they are filled.Generally speaking, I found all 12 of these new shimmer inks to be wetter than all of the other shimmer inks I have used.I have had these inks in these pens for over 2 weeks now. Every pen/ink combination has started straight away without a problem, and I have experienced no stopping or skipping.Some take longer to dry than others, and a couple just soaked into the paper straight away. The most saturated inks will show through and bleed through on cheap paper.None of them are waterproof inks.Diamine Shimmer Inferno Orange is a bright orange ink that is a similar colour to Diamine Pumpkin. It's a quite saturated ink with gold shimmer. The gold shimmer shows up quite easily. I used a Lamy Nexx M (Orange) that has a 1.1mm nib and I had no trouble seeing the golden effect. This ink is quite wet and has quite a long dry time. The first picture is a scanned review form, and the second is a photo. These have been adjusted with Photoshop to get the colour you see to look as close as possible to the actual ink colour.

It's a well saturated ink with silver shimmer. The silver shimmer shows up really easily. I used a red Lamy Safari that has a M nib and I had no trouble seeing the silver effect. This ink feels quite wet, but dries fairly quickly. The Lamy Safari loved it. The combination was a pleasure to write with. The first picture is a scanned review form, and the second is a photo.

  6. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Shimmering Seas This ink is blue-black with a great gold sheen. My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the bottle to mix the particles through the ink before filling your pen. They also recommend that you gently agitate your pen to mix the particles with the ink in your pen when starting a new writing session. I recommend good FP maintenance when using ink that contains particles. I suggest you clean your pens out a little more frequently than you might do with normal ink. These inks will come in 50ml glass bottles, and they have either gold or silver particles in them.
