I was wondering the same thing, so I did a Google search and found some of their colors.

 

I also found this old post on FPN of comparisons of 13 colors, and if you scroll down further Amberlea added a bunch of samples which help put colors into perspective.

"Vanness offers free shipping in the US on Akkerman with the purchase of 4 bottles at $29.00. We will not be offering it on our website- at the request of the Akkerman staff."

As far as colors, I knew from the Atlanta Pen Show that Vanness (what a great store/nice people!) did not have or had sold out of a number of colors and was wondering more about what was in stock at this time.

Thanks for the link. Even the great Akkerman ink with free shipping at $29.00 a bottle is a bit much for me right now.

 

Guess I'll have to make do with what I have until I can afford to buy it or possibly set up a group buy.

 

Anyone have an empty bottle for sale at a reasonable price or I will swap for an Iroshizuku bottle?

How much does it come to per bottle in a group buy?

Wow you really love that #5 Shocking Blue. It seems to be a popular choice. It wasn't one of my 4 first choice colors, maybe I'm just not seeing it right and something is lost when I look at it on screen. I was thinking #8, #15, #18 and #24. Now I'm thinking #5, #8, #13 and #18. (since they're sold out of #15 & #24).

 

Edited to fix my reply, somehow my text got mixed it with the quoted section. Hope it works this time.

I'd love some - but I'm in the UK - any realistic options?

 

If I understand correctly, Akkerman is sold in the Netherlands? Shouldn't it be more cost effective to order directly since you are closer?

I picked up 4 bottles at the Atlanta Pen Show - #5, 11, 15 and 28… The 28 has wonderful shading with a broad italic nib! Highly recommend the nice folks at Vanness - Lisa and Wendi were so nice to work with at the show!

I am sorry for the delay in responding- We usually get on FPN during the weekend - The bottles are $29.00 each- we typically carry all colors- we did run out of 11,15, 16, 20-24 and 29 during the week. We will be restocked by end of next week.- the most popular colors overall are 5, 11, 15, and 22. We had never taken the ink on the road until Atlanta and orange as well as grey were popular choices as well.
