Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Good comparison for me as I just put Solferino in a demo.

 

Is Cactus Fruit the same as Saguaro? I'm confused.

Different inks. Cactus Fruit is one of the Eel inks. Saguaro is a similar color, but I don't have a sample for a comparison. I was surprised how similar it looks to the Organics Studio Emily Dickinson Posie Pink.

Thanks! They look the same in swatches & I like the Saguaro when I've tried it as it's wet enough & dark enough to write pages from one of my huge nibs without hurting my eyes when I go back to read.

Great review Amber!

I have CFE and do like it! It is a really great wet ink and has such a bright-in-your-face-magenta that I love to use sometimes!

I have Emily Dickinson too and love that one as well. It is slightly more tame, more reminiscent of a bright pink rose yet not as searing as CFE. I love both. And of course Monteverde Purple I adore that one the very most!

I love how you do your reviews! Thank you for sharing!!! :)

Since I already did this one... I shared my sample, but I'm still crossing this off the Shawndo List.

 

Two years ago, FPNer Shawndo, purchased a lot of samples including every blue ink Goulet's had to offer.

http://www.shawndo.com/images/content/forum_stuff/ink-samples.jpg

Alas, Shawndo ran out of free inky time. I agreed to do these reviews. So here we are.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
