I'm back! After (what, a year?) I finally have time to do reviews again! Well, I've still been doing them, but without a working scanner, and with no time to set up a photo situation that's up to my standards, I haven't posted a new on in a while.

I used to scan the reviews at a high resolution, but photobucket started to hate on my data usage and I had three separate PB accounts full of review pics. Getting accurate color out of the scans was always exceedingly difficult, and I'd always wanted to switch over to taking the pics with a camera using noon daylight (CRI of 100 is hard to argue with) using a custom white balance, but until recently I just hadn't had time.

So no more super-high resolution reviews, and unfortunately I'm still using my first DSLR so the best I can do right now is 10 megapixels (not including any cropping), but the color should be much more spot on.

I'm also going to do something new with newly posted reviews—a poll. You'll be able to vote! A simple question: "Do you like the ink?" I'm not asking if you like the reviews, just the inks. :)

So enjoy! I'll be posting many more—and with a backlog of about 70 already-written reviews and more being written all the time, the supply should last a while.
:D

I love this ink for how vibrant it is, alas it has no fade resistance.

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

The "poorly behaved" part - experienced firsthand - led to a no vote from me. Other purples feed my fetish and play more nicely.

I really like the colour, depending on the grapes I can think of but IMO the maintenance is not good.

I've yet to try this one. The color is nice, but too bad about the rest.

 

And yay, you're back! I have missed your reviews, so a backlog of 70 sounds wonderful! :)

Welcome Back! I am big fan of your reviews and love the way you do them. :wub: They have the content that I want to see which can help with the purchase which for me is bottom line really. I just wish that you recommend the alternatives for the ink you review. Nevertheless, awesome review; keep up the good work and know that your effort is appreciated. :D

 

Regards

I've just recently inked a Pilot Metropolitan with Baystate Concord Grape - it just doesn't write very well - lots of spreading, even on some of the better papers I have on hand.

 

Love the color and saturation - too bad.

      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

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      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
