Ink Sample Exchange - United States

Wish I could edit the post more than once :(

 

Hi rdugar,

 

I don't think you want to edit your original post. On the other hand, you can. :)

 

I am new here and just discovered this thread as a solution to the problem of wanting to try a bunch of inks in order to find the one version that you're looking for, or they are all great, but one eventually tires of them and wants to use some other colors. Which is some variation of what everyone else is doing on here.

 

With that in mind, once I read the first page from years back, I just jumped to the last page to get the current view of things. So if your original post ends up getting too far back very few new people will eventually be reading it. However, why rewrite some of that information again if it's still relevant? Make your old post a new post by copying the original with the ["Reply] button and then editing it to suit your new situation.

Delete the computer's quote codes at the beginning {quote name='rdugar' date='Feb 18 2009, 07:37 AM' post='940506'}

and end {/quote} of your message and it will appear as a normal post rather than in a quote box.

i have ink.

i want ink.

 

I hope that's clear and helpful.

- Waterman South Seas blue, Havana Brown

- Diamine Presidential Blue 2004

- Hero / Doctor Black, Blue/Black

- Penman Ruby (in cartridges), Ebony

- Mont Blanc blue/black (very watery and thin though, may be too old?)

Hi,

 

The only thing is I don't have any of those little sample vials. How/Where do I get those?

 

I only just started getting interested in fountain pens & inks so my collection is a grand total of 3! I have a few more inks, but these are the three that I have enough to share and trade with.

 

I have ink:

Noodler's

  • Zhivago (Dark Green)

The Heart of Darkness (Dark Black)

Seminole Sepia (made for Swisher Pens)

I want ink:

Noodler's

  • Red-Black

or any other suggestions for a nice RedBlack

 

Thanks!

Ummmm, out of curiosity, how long have you had those PR inks?

 

As best as I can tell from my records they are Summer 2006 acquisitions. I have older and newer P.R. blues and greens that are fine. I presume that they were contaminated by something since it appears to only the the red / burgundy / brown inks that are effected. Maybe I was dipping and playing around with that color range one day and some evil crept inside? No sign of mold though, so I am officially stumped.

BUMMER! I've heard tell that sometimes Burgundy Mist shifts color over time.

I am putting a hold on all trades until after April 24 when I can sit down and reinventory - a lot of trades have been done recently and as I am a CPA and it's tax season :crybaby: I just won't be able to do this properly until then - thanks to all those who have been trading with me.

      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

      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
