Recommended Posts

I just wanted to give a quick posting of this lovely MB special edition Carlo Collodi ink I got from Pen Boutique.

 

Comes in 35ml round bottles and has exceptional writing, flow, lubrication, shading, and easy pen cleaning characteristics. (thumbnails)

Added a couple other ink comparisons and on Clairefontaine paper:

This is after 20 seconds under running water on Staples eco Sugarcane paper:

Hi,

 

The orange-brown shading makes for a strange-looking ink, no?

 

Many thanks for preventing an unrewarding purchase. :thumbup:

 

Bye,

Strange shading indeed... But the colour looks different and good.

Sam,

 

Thanks for the review. :thumbup:

 

Question: how does the ink react to water? Is it water resistant?

I actually also wanted to see it next to Toffee, so did the water test, and added Toffee & the MB Sepia from before. You may have to refresh the page.

 

You can order it still at Pen Boutique here, and see a photo of the bottle/box.

I love the orange-brown tones. It almost reminds me of a browner version of Sailor Red-brown.

Guess what I just happened to have in one of my trays of vials. I went back and added Sailor R-B to the Clairefontaine paper. Quite a striking difference!

Thanks for the review...I really like the "different color" shading...really interesting.

Now added to my "want list"

Is this a short time limited edition or will it be available for a while?

I think I read in the MB forum that there were a limited number of bottles being produced, and less than the number of Carlo Collodi pens, so I suspect it will quickly become unobtainum.

 

Also this ink has a sticker on the bottom that says made in Austria.

Sam, is that all of your samples? I would have thought you had more.

 

No, those were just the trays of vials in the one drawer I took out to find another ink. It is a part of what is proving to be a very effective system for keeping original bottles stored and organized, and having a large quantity quickly and easily available with the vials.

Sam, thank you for adding the Sailor Red-brown comparison. I ended up ordering two bottles from Pen Boutique last night, and they shipped today! I can't wait!

Hmmm. If my monitor conveys the colours accurately, Collodi looks alot like Toffee brown with more and lighter coloured shading.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      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.
