Ink Sample Exchange - United States


Guest Denis Richard

Recommended Posts

This is mainly a one time request for samples of J. Herbin's Eclat de Saphir and Visconti Blue.

 

I am trying to find the best behaved, closest match to Noodler's Baystate Blue and started this thread on it

in Inky Thoughts; https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/in...howtopic=101490

 

The bad news is that two of the probable front runners, J. Herbin's Eclat de Saphir and Visconti's Blue are

out of stock at Peartree Pens (and thusly can't be included in the sampler I ordered) and James has no

idea when they will be placing another order for them. :(

 

Now, I don't have alot of inks I can trade but I do have some vials and could trade;

 

Noodler's Midnight Blue

PR Copper Burst

PR Midnight Blues

Pelikan Brown

Waterman Black

and a few Cross Black catridges which is supposed to be the same as Pelikan Black

 

I also have a spare new Field Notes pocket notebook and a couple spare 1oz Nalgene travel ink bottles I

could also trade. If necessary, I'd pay for these 2 samples also.

 

Please PM me if you can help out here.

 

Much Thanks,

 

Bruce in Ocala, FL

Saguaro Wine***********

Something bulletproof

 

Diamine:

Each cartridge holds a little over 1ml of ink. Ideally, I'd like to do something like 6 carts for 5ml of ink or 6 carts for 6 carts.

 

Even if you don't use carts you could always pop them open and extract the ink with a syringe.

 

PM me with trades. Thanks.

Looks like my "want" list keeps growing, and "have" list is the same :(

 

I have

 

- Noodler's Gulf Stream Blue (Waterproof)

- Pelikan Royal Blue

- Parker Quink Black (Nice flow, shading)

- ST Dupont Royal Blue

- Camel Blue

- Pelikan Blue-Black

 

I am interested in

 

- Pilot Iroshizoku Ku-Jaku

- Pilot Iroshizoku Kon-Peki

- Noodler's Navy

- Diamine Teal

- Diamine Majestic Blue

- Diamine WES Imperial Blue

- PR DC Electric Blue

- ST Dupont Blue-Black

- J Herbin Bleu Nuit

 

I have tried

- Noodler's Navajo Turquoise (lovely, but too light after drying)

- Noodler's Eel Blue (true blue, but not exciting enough)

- Sailor Blue-Black (nice but too dull)

- J Herbin Eclat De Saphir (nice but lighter than I want)

- Waterman Florida Blue

- Pelikan Blue-Black (dull)

- ST Dupont Black (nice shading and flow)

 

Need a bright and dark blue with good shading, free flowing and reasonable drying time. I don't mind green or even purple undertones. Suggestions on others will be welcome.

Hi,

 

Thanks to my trading partners here I'm now up to 109 sample vials. So, I'm taking a break from the Ink Exchange until I've tried them all. I'll try and add reviews to my blog as I do. You can see my current ink reviews (99 as of today) on my blog at Harmless Dilettante.

 

I'll post when I'm ready to start ink swapping again.

 

Thanks everyone,

Kate

To get the vials we use for the ink exchange system, contact Dillo (Dillon).

 

Though vials will hold about 7 ml of ink, the user's nib will displace some--thus filling with about 5 ml for trading is recommended.

 

 

This is where you post your requests and offers for the "KCat system" of vial sample exchange. I propose a simple format such as :

 

"I have :

<list>

I am interested in :

<list>

Contact me by <e-mail/PM/etc...>."

 

 

Denis.

Diamine:Damson,Florida blue,Blue Black
