TallDarkStranger

My collection is rather limited compared to that of others. I have the following:

 

 

Bottled Ink:

Quink: Blue-black, and green

Noodlers: Sequoia

Private Reserve: Blue suede, spearmint, dc supershow blue, and tanzanite

Pelikan: Turquoise

Aurora: Blue

Doctor: Red, Blue, Blue-Black, Black

Mont-Blanc: Black and Blue-black.

 

In addition I have a delightful very dark green (with a faint tinge of blue) that I mixed myself.

 

 

Cartridges:

 

Parker Quink Blue and blue-black

Sheaffer blue-black

Cross blue black

Assorted generic international short cartridges.

 

I would like to try colors I don't have especially browns, reds, purples, etc.

 

Many thanks.

Honestly, though, I'm open to just about anything that's not on my "owns" list. At this point, I'm a bit Noodler's-heavy and would like to branch out to some other brands of inks (but there are also so many more Noodler's that look fantastic!) I welcome recommendations from others. Blue is my favorite color, but I particularly love jewel toned colors (blues, browns, burgundies, violets, and deep greens). Not especially interested in blacks unless someone wants to convince me there's this great black I have to try!

 

Thanks for looking,

Jeff

Cartridges I have:

 

My Levenger cartridges are dual ended Parker/large International sized. Be aware they're slimmer than a normal Parker cartridge or a large Waterman cartridge. These do work in my Waterman Kultur, but your mileage my vary because I understand Waterman carts are at least slightly different from International. I have:

 

Levenger Amythest

Levenger Cardinal Red

Levenger Cocoa

Levenger Gemstone Green

 

Bottled ink I have:

 

Parker Quink Blue-Black

Private Reserve Arabian Rose

Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue

Private Reserve Grey Flannel

Private Reserve Midnight Blues (NOT the fast dry version)

 

Bottled ink I'd like to try:

 

Both FPN inks

Noodlers - Various Bulletproof Inks (most notably Old Manhattan Black and Legal Lapis)

Private Reserve - Sonic Blue, Chocolat, Black Cherry

Visconti - Blue, Sepia

Caran d'Ache - Storm, Grand Canyon, Sunset

Conway Stewart - Dark Green

J. Herbin - Terre de Feu, Gris Nuage

Omas - Sepia, Grey

Sailor - Red-Brown, Grey, Brown

Rohrer and Klingner - Alt Bordeaux, Verdigris, Sepia, Leipziger Schwarz

Stipula - Sepia, Deep Blue, Dark Red

Waterman - Havana Brown

 

(Note that I don't have vials just yet, so bottle ink trades probably cannot happen until 2008 -- if it's 2008 when you're reading, assume I'm all set)

Since the long term editing feature seems to have gone the ways of the Dodo :crybaby: , Here's a list of my current collection of 138 bottled inks:

 

My Big Fat Ink Collection

 

Sorry to send you to my blog, but a sad lack of self-control means that I'll adding to the list soon.

 

The short list of inks I's like to sample is here:

 

Inky Wish List

 

However, I'd be interested in almost any ink I haven't already tried. So if you have an ink that isn't in my current collection or in my sample list (see link below), PM me and perhaps we can do a trade.

 

Samples I've already traded for

 

Thanks,

Kate

I mistakenly bought a 6 pack of short blue/black Cross fountain pen cartridges last night. I thought it might work in a pen that only takes the short international cartridges. But after a lot of cursing and blue/black fingers, I realized that it won't work. I bought these hoping that the ink would be slightly more water resistant than the PR Lake Placid Blue that I'm using right now, unfortunately, I won't be able to find out.

 

I would be willing to trade the remaining 5 for any other colors in the short international cartridges. Send me a PM if you'd like to trade.

I've updated <span style='color:red'>(04-11-07)</span> - Red indicates an ink added as of this date.

 

Private Reserve: DC Blue, Tanzanite, <span style='color:red'>Black Magic Blue</span>

Herbin: Amber,

Diamine: Claret, Prussian Blue, Sepia, Umber, Woodland Green

Aurora: Black

Waterman: Violet (NOS - with that lovely camphor smell), Havana

Noodlers: Saguaro Wine, Squeteague,WP Black, FPN Brown, <span style='color:red'>Apache Sunset</span>

 

Here are the inks I'm interested in but if you have something else let that you might want to suggest, just let me know.

 

PR: Sonic Blue,

Diamine inks: Any but Prussian Blue, Indigo, Claret, Emerald, Umber or Woodland Green.

Caran D'Ache: <span style='color:purple'>Storm</span>

 

Also - since i'm actually saturated (NPI) with inks, I'm open to trading for paper samples such as a couple of sheets of Clairefontaine, Rhodia, etc. I'll trade for postage as well. That is, an unused US 60c stamp for a sample of ink. or two 37c. it's typically 60c to send one vial.

 

for future reference - NPI= No Pun Intended

 

Hi KCat,

 

I noticed that the posts in this thread are old. Would you still be interested in trading ink for postage? Postage may be more now. I'd be happy to send whatever you need. Also, your list of inks available may have changed. Just let me know. I'm new to fountain pens and have only two bottled inks so far: Aurora black and Waterman Havana brown. Thanks!

See this thread for all the details, but it's pretty straightforward:

 

PM Dillo with how many you would like and your address. He'll pm you back with the cost ($0.10 each) + postage. You PayPal him the $. He sends you the vials (although he is traveling for the next two weeks). You sample the inky goodness through trades with other FPNers.
