If it were to pick from these three, which one would you chose for your daily writer?

Ebony Purple.....

 

Well, I love grape, but 2 years later and I haven't gotten the stains out. Syrah is beautiful but too dry for me. I just loaded up Ebony Purple and it's a sneaky color. It looks black. Then, it looks purple. I could take it into court and get away with signing a document.

 

:) And you made me smile.

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

LOL :)

 

I've just tried them again with a Japanese F nib. Interesting result, it lays a finer but much darker line, so the Grape looks as dark (black) as the Ebony Purple in the pictures above. A black with violet tinge, very classy. I guess the japanese pen manages to lay down the same quantity of ink except in a thinner line thus the increased saturation.

 

The Syrah with extra saturation looks gorgeous too. :wub:

 

Now that you scared me about staining, I'll refrain from inking an ExtraFine.... :P

In fairness, purples are more prone to staining.

I also say the Ebony.

 

 

Have you all seen the Officially Licensed Pacman Ghost lamp? My husband is already chomping at the bit for me to buy it for him (he's a big fan of the game).

They're alll nice but I think i'd go with ebony purple because it's the most conservative for general purpose use. I think syrah is the most aesthetic though

      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
    • adamselene
      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
