A List Of Chinese Ink Brands



Recommended Posts

Unfortunately most of them are shimmering or calligraphy ink that is definitely not fountain pen friendly despite what the Mfr might say about it. And even for those that are not formulated so they tend be be temperamental or over saturated. A few individual pigment based ink for documents are fine. Right now I wold concentrate my collection to the Hero 7200 series ( which now consist of 24+1 color , the +1 being just basic Black ) and its by the Mfr mixable. And the Ostrich color set which is pretty nice.

 

I do enjoy some of those off beat or boutique ink , some time they do come in color that's ard to come by ut more often I found tha there's really little difference between various ones that's basically still on same hue

 

Those are exactly my observations as well.

Most of the new fangled inks are unsafe for fountain pens and are part of this fad for glass pens. As far as Chinese boutique inks in non-standard colors go, I think Penbbs can't be beat. Although, even they have fallen into the glitter trap with several of their recent collections. You also can't go wrong with Hero.

I recently got the Medicine & Wine set from TheBAI (non-shimmer version). Inked up the wingsung 618 with one of the colors, and after about 2 weeks it's still behaving well. Really nice packaging!

My pen is smaller than yours. Now get off my lawn.

Has anyone been able to actually buy ink from taobao and have it shipped internationally?

All agents I have found won't ship anything more than 10ml per shipment.

There is 15ml bottle inks seller in Aliexpress, called Zycc. They told me exactly this when I asked for registered tracking number:

 

China Post registration does not accept liquid delivery. Only e-packets can be sent for information tracking.

 

The cheaper method was SunYou economic Airmail. I got a 30ml delivery with SunYou shipping method.

 

Last year, when I purchased some goods from TaoBao over a proxy, they had a e-packet option as far as I remember. Maybe a TaoBao proxy may help you out there.

I can't read the Chinese characters. But the M:G.....(60ml) ink is very high quality. It is available here in local Pakistan market for Rs. 200 ($1.35). It comes in only 3 shades. Blue, Black and Red. 

I have been IMG_20210709_083417_746.jpg.0ca2f8beef79c4c768b5a407b1978452.jpgusing the blue and it is, to my understanding, at par with Pelikan 4001 inks.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
