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?

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
