SK -- do you have a picture of the official vials? I'm curious if it's what I have.

Many thanks,

Well, I don't have or particularly want to order any of the ink vials available here, but I do have some 0.25 oz (7.4 mL) jars for ink trading. I've sent them in the post before and have never had a problem with them leaking ink!

They will come labeled, just like the picture above.

 

My inks:

Visconti Blue, Bordeaux.

Diamine Mediterranean Blue, Umber, Emerald, Imperial Purple, Pumpkin, Damson.

Waterman Blue-Black.

Private Reserve Arabian Rose.

Aurora Black.

Montblanc Violet.

J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune, Cacao du Brésil, Terre de Feu.

Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-Ro.

 

PM me if interested in at least two of these colors and live in the CONUS! :)

Just got a generous supply of vials from Dillon which were backordered, but still only took just over 2 weeks from when I first contacted him. Wanted to thank him very much for his contribution to the community, and added a bit to help cover any losses he may run into over the years doing this.

 

:thumbup::notworthy1:

 

 

Edit: Let me even go a step further, and praise the quality of these vials. My questions were how water tight the lids are, and how strong is the plastic.

 

I filled one about 3/4 with water, added a drop of black ink, tightened the cap as tight as I could by hand (also to make sure the threads don't easily strip from overtightening, and went outside to test.

 

I shook it as hard as I could back and forth for at least 30 seconds, trying to make liquid come out the lid. 100% secure

I squeezed the plastic sides as hard as I could wearing a pair of garden gloves, and could not break it. I tried to break it too. Secure.

Final test, I set it on its side, placing onto dark slate in the hot 2pm sun, with the 1/4 air space which should have heated up nicely. No leaks.

 

So, I regard these as better than a glass vial for shipping, and about the only thing that could cause these to leak or break would be some mechanical metal trauma. To get these from Dillon for 10 cents each, and he send them to you on good faith, for you to reimburse him after seeing the amount of the postage + $1 for packing + $1 for PayPal (if used)--is an incredibile gift to the community.

Here is a thumbnail of what the vials look like, and size scale.

I am relatively new to FPing, so I only own colors at this point...obviously I need more variety. Hopefully I can trade both samples to the same person to keep shipping minimal. Thanks! Jeff

 

I have:

 

5ml Diamine Saddle Brown

5ml Noodler's Red

 

 

I want:

 

Noodler's Lexington Gray

Diamine Woodland Green (or equivalent...looking for a sophisticated blackish-green color of US currency)

Waterman Florida Blue

Diamine Sepia

Will consider other MASCULINE colors

I also would like a few empty Lamy cartridges if anyone had any to get rid of
