Has anyone tried the Nioi Sumire? Looks like an interesting lighter grayish blue violet.

The Nioi Sumire is a perfect Lavender! Not really greyish at all. Unfortunately just cleaned the pen that held it so cannot post pictures but I would recommend it.

Wish list: Aurora Optima

Current inked Pens: Pilot Decimo - Noodlers BBH, MB Mozart - MB Lavender

Pelikan M150 - Noodlers Kung te Cheng

It's definitely back! Sailor Yama-dori March 2014 edition.

 

Even under my horrible office fluourescent lights, with a rubbish camera phone, you can see the wonderful sheen!

 

 

*ignore the colour tones of the ink - the lighting changes the background to a deep cream and the ink to a very dark shade*

bleair - here's the link for the ink review index section that covers Sailor inks. There are a ton of reviews to check out. :D

 

 

 

I never got around to trying Nioi-sumire. In some pictures it looked great -

... but in most it looked totally insipid. I tend to prefer really saturated, vibrant colours, so the plethora of these types of pictures did not inspire my confidence. I'll wait until someone I know gets it, or until people put up a lot more reviews. :P

Mmmmm, just got my shipping notice from Atsu. I am beyond excited. Putting in in my MB and going to town. Yessss. I have not been this excited about an ink since Visconti Purple...I hope these are better than that one, and I am sure they are.

Thanks Saskia for the great scans and information. I have Scabiosa, Kujaku and Tsukiyo so I can imagine what the others look like in person.

 

Atsu was out of Yamadori when I ordered, so I'll have to wait until more arrives, but I was able to pick up Tokiwamatsu and Kobe #19 Lime Green. I'm eager to start using them.

Darn it. It looks like I will have to wait as well then.

Thanks for all the comparisons, saskia! I'll definitely need to clear some space in my ink drawer for when Todd gets these in stock.

How is Waka-uguisu? I never got to try it out. Id' be THRILLED if they re-released Rikyu-cha though! :D

Boy I wish I knew! I fell in love with the color according to what I've seen in ink reviews, but was late in the game of inks and fountain pens to get any when it was available. I have Alt-Goldgrun and warmed up to its subtleties. I'd like one just a tad yellower/greener.

 

I tried Iro chiku-rin, tried to like it, tried to want it, but it's the worst of the Iro's for behavior of the ones I've tried and the color was sheepishly *meh*. I did see where someone added some blue and it looked quite nice.

Couldn't get Yama-dori as it's out. :bawl:

However I did managed to order Tokiwa-matsu and a Bungbox Emerald from Atsu.

Can't wait till it arrives! :D

Mine were last seen in Japan waiting to board the plane.

      @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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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.
