I do believe you are correct Gerry... opening an old bottle of Waterman ink is right up there with the smell of fresh baked bread and apple pie.

  • Aircorp blue-black
  • Navajo Turquoise

  • **I'll trade for pretty much anything I don't have, so this is not a conclusive list**

  • greens and browns
  • burgundy inks
  • any fast-drying inks (particularly dark, saturated colors)
  • dark colors--greens, reds, blues, etc. that seem almost black

I figure anything I don't have is worth trading for; cheaper than the whole bottle at least.

Stolen: Aurora Optima Demonstrator Red ends Medium nib. Serial number 1216 and Aurora 98 Cartridge/Converter Black bark finish (Archivi Storici) with gold cap. Reward if found. Please contact me if you have seen these pens.

Please send vial orders and other messages to fpninkvials funny-round-mark-thing gmail strange-mark-thing com. My shop is open once again if you need help with your pen.

Will someone with the name of "Jay" who emailed me through the email system provide me an email address? There was no email address provided, so I can't write back.

To quote KCat, I'm really saturated with ink. Engorged. And I'm in Italy, so it's not always easy to trade, like at the pen club meetings in the US or Israel, or wherever. I would prefer to trade than to sell and buy, so here's what I have for trade, and what I am seeking:

Omas Vespucci Red - full, brand new in Vespucci box, with Vespucci label, etc. (125ml) - I would like to trade this for, say three new bottles of PR: Blue Suede, Fiesta Red & Avacado.

PR American Blue, Visconti Ultramarine (turquoise) - large, old fashioned "hourglass" bottle with base, Herbin Poussiere de Lune, and 85-90% full bottles of Visconti Green (smaller hourglass bottle) and Noodler Ottoman Azure. I can also offer Sheaffer Peacock Blue (NOS), Visconti Black (large, old style bottle) and Lapis (same).

I'm looking for Sheaffer Burgundy, Caran d'Ache Turquoise, Jansen Stahlblau (and the items listed above).

Still seeking the One Pen to Rule Them All...
