I have a 95% full bottle of De Atramentis Aubergine that I would love to trade.

You know, loved the sample, bought a bottle and it's just not hitting it for me.

I much prefer the Sailor Shigure.

 

I am looking for:

 

Sailor Oku-Yama

Robert Oster Deep Sea

Blackstone Blue Cypress

De Atramenits Indigo

 

(I am open to partial bottles of 15-20ml. This wasn't particularly expensive and I am sick of looking at it)

 

OR

 

A #6 1.1 Stub nib (Conklin ok, lol, just in case you have one lying about that you love to hate. I really need an extra nib to swap out from time to time).

 

DM me to discuss even if you don't have exactly what I am looking for. I am partial to Sailor & Iroshizuku inks.

Thanks!

I'm on a kick to find a green that I really like--probably a dark/forest green. I'd really like to swap some samples of what I have, rather than buy new stuff. The catch right now is that I only have 2 empty sample vials, until I use up some samples and can reuse them. am out of vials! Please PM me if you're interested and we can work something out when I get more.

 

I have plenty of inks, though, and some Parker cartridges to offer up. So if anyone thinks a swap might work, please PM me. (If you have spare empties, let me know; you could send your exchange to me first and include a few empties for me to fill and return.)

I'm after samples (or even full/partial bottles) of either Papier Plume 011 (Chicago Pen Show special), or Diamine Blood Orange. Also, a bit of Bungubox Kabayaki Hamanako Eel or Green Tea 88 or Nostalgia.

 

 

All of these seem really difficult to find, anywhere. I have inks, including some nearly full bottles I can trade. I don't have a ton of ink, but, maybe just PM me, as I'm preparing my list as we speak. I will list them as needed. Or, we can just trade samples. Heck, I'd even be willing to just buy some if I could find some. :)

 

Just kinda trying to find some of these inks here in the US, to keep shipping costs down.

 

Thanks.

I wish I had any of these to offer up. Diamine Blood Orange is, at least, available; Goulet has samples.

Massdrop is running a drop on Diamine 150th Anniversary inks right now, and Blood Orange is one of the available options. (I've checked.) Easy as.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
