Here is my mix:

4 drops of Blue gouache.

5 drops of Higgins Eternal black ink.

10 drops of water to make it runny.

I used this mix in a Noodler's Ahab, but only for 10 minutes or so, I didn't want to ruin my pen, but it is good for special projects if you do not have a dip pen (I heard you can use a Brause nib in an Ahab ;) ).

Using 80gm paper, it has some shading, little bit of bleed,no feathering.

I had railroading but that might be the pen, it keeps up when speed writing, no skiping at all.

I call it:

I do not know how to "use" this section of FPN. Am I to believe that there is only ONE mixture that uses Sailor inks? Seems very strange! C. S.

Gee ----- All of this is too complicated for me to understand! All I wanted was a suggestion on what would be a good color to mix with Apache Sunset. ----- Something like, 2/3 A. Sunset, and 1/3 blue ink! ----

so these are fusions not necessarily recipes. I prefer the scratch method, looking forward to experimenting with others.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
