Let's See Your Ink Collection Set-Up!



Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody!

 

if you're anything like me, you have a very specific way that you like to arrange your collection of inks on your desk or in a drawer etc. Time to show them off! Ill begin by posting mine and a list of the inks there.

 

Please don't mind the tequila in the background....

 

Thanks

-M.

Inks:

 

Lamy Blue

Lamy Blue-Black (my first ink)

 

Montblanc Leonardo (maybe my new favorite)

Montblanc Toffee Brown (my everyday ink for my Montparnasse)

 

Diamine Turquoise

 

Noodler's X-Feather

Noodler's Rome Burning (awful)

Noodler's Forest Green

Noodler's American Eel Black (my everyday ink for my TWSBI 580 and it smells great)

Noodler's Baystate Blue (proceed with caution)

Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses (my everyday ink for any flex pen)

Noodler's Red-Black (my everyday ink for my Platinum 3776 with its awesome 18k "c" nib)

Noodler's Apache Sunset (my go-to "impact ink" when I want to show off)

Noodler's Saguaro Wine

Noodler's Zhivago (one of my all time favorite inks, probably going to switch my Montparnasse to this ink)

 

J. Herbin Lie de The

J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir

 

Pilot Ishorizuke Tsuki-yo (my everyday ink for my Lamy 2000)

Pilot Ishorizuku fuyu-syogun

What are the large bottles of golden brown ink in the background?

One is Tequila and one is probably Sailor Jerry at a guess?

I definitely believe that this "large bottles of ink" help my drafting very much, I highly recommend them. :lticaptd:

 

Also, nice collection Attila! What is the flagon of ink I see?

 

On an unrelated note, I also have a really good friend in Budapest named Attila!

This is the best collection I've ever seen of these bottles. WOW thank you for sharing.

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

Eeew ... do I see Concord Bream in Amber's collection? Doesn't that even top LRM for bad behavior on paper?

Hmmm, I don't see TX Pecan with the "Big Nuts" on it.

Good eye, yep, I have both the Big Nut (next to the heart) and the lousy concord bream but no LRM. However, QSH was the WORST performer for me.

Wow nice collections! I just saw an interesting 1 liter OMAS bottle for sale and I got tempted to buy it...I just worry if I buy one that I will end up with lots of vintage ink bottles and it will start to look like clutter.

 

Since I am in the middle of a huge remodel all of my inks are in various boxes...not sure I will ever have a proper display though as my style is modern and minimal.

The reason mine is so small compared to what it could be ... I give away samples or even bottles.
