I've just bought the Rose Cyclamen and I love it to bits! It's in my Parker 51 Signet with the broad nib and gosh, it's fun.

 

I want to get the R+K Solferino and Fernambuk, but it seems to be difficult getting it in France.

 

Me, too! Rose Cyclamen is a new favorite, as is R & K Solferino. Really rich colors and worth the extra effort to get them! And I cannot recommend highly enough Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline. The shading is tremendous and there's even a bit of subtle sheen on the right paper.

Hi everyone, with access to a scanner this week, I have started scanning some old comparisons in case people prefer looking at scanned images to photos of writing samples.

PS for some reason Fernambuk is not turning out as true to the actual color as it should via scanner (it looks too orangey) and I think the set of photos of this ink in the first post are truer to its actual color.

I like them all!

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

I couldn't agree MORE! Great colors --I was not acquainted with the Iroshizuku Yama-budo, but I will have to give that one a try!

I now have a bottle of Noodlers Black Swan in Australian Roses....very close to Yams Budo?

 

The colors might be similar but the writing experiences are so different and the sheen is very different.

Ooooo! I can't wait to compare them... :eureka:

For what it's worth, KWZI's Violet #9 leans to the pink side - and if the paper gets wet, the ink becomes more intensive.

 

I received a batch of samples shortly before Christmas. I had asked for Violet #9 on a whim, as I'm not usually partial to inks in that part of the spectrum (gave away my bottle of Edelstein Turmaline, as I couldn't get along with it).

This ink has been a pleasant surprise, and it's one of the (ahem) several full bottles I have now ordered.

 

You can see a full list of KWZI inks, plus swatches, links to reviews, etc, in this thread, started on 19 December 2014 (Violet #9 is ink #47 in the list, with the colour code 2011). Fair warning: if you like inks and don't know this range yet, think carefully before clicking on the link, as you may face temptation...

Do we have a Pink Swatches thread yet?

 

Okay, we do now....

Please add any pink swatches, we'd love to collect them.

I want to get the R+K Solferino and Fernambuk, but it seems to be difficult getting it in France. Whereas Herbin, of course, is everywhere - well, okay, not everywhere, but I know at least three places I can get it easily.

 

Just read the newest posts on your blog, your Phileas/Kultur collection is incredible. Please post the picture on the Waterman subforum in the Phileas thread.

 

I think one of your Phileas color is unique. (sorry for the off topic and use of an old post)

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
