I just put together 40 vials of ink, ready to ship out for trade. One set is accounted for, I have four of each of these:

 

PR

Dakota Red

Arabian Rose

Fiesta Red

 

Noodlers:

Shah's

Kiowa Pecan

BSB

Blue Ghost

Navajo Turquoise

 

 

I'd love to pack up eight vials and send them to you for eight random vials of whatever you want to send me. I will make a list of what I have, but I can tell you that my only brands are PR and Noodlers, so if you have an ink by another maker, and it is not black, assume that I will take it!

South Seas Blue is already vintage ? I am that old ? :unsure: When did they stop making it ?

And I gotta find my inner self (but I worry about being too flamboyant with lavenders etc...) so, perhaps a diversion into brown & copper tones, or some greens.

 

I tend to like saturated colours rather than pastels.

I have vials and am ready to play. My collection is limited but I'm very happy to share so I can get a better idea of what to add.

 

I have:

 

Noodlers

 

Standard brown

Blue/black

Purple wampum

Blue ghost

Ottoman rose

Luxury blue

Hunter green

For those making their own iron galls, I have some cochineal, logwood, madder root, and annatto seed which can be used to color the ink.

 

Would like to try:

 

Diamine china blue

a nice dark red

I'm open to any other suggestions/thoughts except iron gall inks as I'm brewing a whole kitchen counter full right now.

 

Let me know. I can share toys and play well with others.

My vials are playing the minx and until I can locate them, I have to bow out the ink exchange. I ordered alot of them, so it's not like it's a small package hiding from me. I suppose that's what happens when I make sure to put something where I know I can find it :rolleyes: To those with whom I've already made exchange agreements, not to worry I have plan B!

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
    • amk
      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
