Aubergine - De Atarmentis


Recommended Posts

I like De Atramentis inks, I feel they deserve more attention than they get in the fountain pen community :)On the other hand they're not really cheap.

Anyway Aubergine is really great color.

Ink Splash (Mondi 90g)


















As you see color difference between Pilot B italics and "regular" nib is quite strong. It's not however difference - the thing is iridium tipped nib leaves stronger, more saturated line with some "mauve" accents and Pilot's italic reverses these proportions paler shade becomes dominant and the stronger tones create shading.

Hi Visamitra...


An excellent job you did on an excellent ink...


I agree thtat De atramentis deserve moe attention. I am helping the uttterly passionate and freindly owner Dr Jansen to do so...


Dr Jansen allowed me to make the 4=3 offer for all FPN members...


Order 4 pay 3 order 8 pay 6 etc etc.


Maybe nice to know you can know order Ink Drops at De Atramentis.... 2 Ml ink tubes for testing.....


May be you can use these.... I will send my adress to you great fellow country man King Konrad for some samples... Will of course test them here.. I will ask him to send me other colours than the one u tested.... So more of his inks get exposed.


I spoke with Dr. Jansen of De Atramentis I will post a comparison of all De Atramentis standard inks soon. Just like Good old cybaea did wiht Diamine.


Good to see your as assionate about inks (and DA) like I am. I simply have a soft spot for the smaller passionat ink companies like De atramentis and the new KWZI...


Thanks a lot Visamitra

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism :)

Great review, as usually. This one went on my wishlist after the recommend a purple thread, and this moved it up on the list! I'll definitely be picking up a sample whenever I place my next order. It'll actually be my first DeA sample.

So many inks, so little time...

Great review of a really nice color. If you're a fan of purple inks, their Magenta Violet is one of the most vibrant purples I've come across.


Nice colour.


Is this the De Atramentis Puccini Aubergine?


My understanding is it is the same color, just relabeled for their Great Composers series.

      @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

      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

      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.
