Battle Of The Inks - Doppelgänger Edition


Cyber6

Recommended Posts

 

Yes, Konrad is the Ink Master. Right now the easiest/affordable way to get them is through a Group Buy. Follow the link in my signature, the KWZI Second Group Buy is completed, but I will announce in that thread when we are ready for the next one. It won't be until the new year

 

 

In the meantime, drop me a PM with your mailing address and I can mail you a sample of #36 for you to play with and decide if you really want it.. (You will... :P)

 

 

Thanks! I'll do that!

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 :)

Wow what an awesome resource!

Thank you Cyber6 and everyone who is contributing! I am definitely going to follow this thread!

 

 

Quick question - I use a small Clairefontaine notebook for my ink/pen journal which is perfect for me. But what do you guys use for the ink swab cards (are they pre-cut cards? Or are you cutting out your own out of certain papers?) And how do you store the the cards?

 

Thank you for any advice!

I use the Marumam Nmemosyne Cards.. (you can find them at JetPens)..

 

But that is cause I wanted an easy way to keep track of my inks without much effort from me. I am sure you can find better paper (the Mnemosyne paper is good but not the BEST fountain pen paper) and cut your own. You can also buy the ring tops in a dollar store. I have them organized by alphabetical by brand and then by ink name. Once I locate the ones I want.. I can remove them and scan/compare them side by side. VERY useful.

The rich Montblanc Lavender is difficult to source within Australia - is there a substitute? Anything even close?

Thanks, Visvamitra, the 60 violets purples comparison is one of my favourite threads, your work is outstanding.

 

But even amongst that many inks there's nothing quite like the Montblanc Lavender.

These cards have changed my life. Seriously.

 

Migo984, I'm eternally grateful.

 

PS. The Journal shop are out of stock at the moment :(

I'm totally impressed! Like Vis, I'm too messy.

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

Well, I'm messy in other ways! But thanks, amberleadavis and visvamitra!

And Visvamitra, your purple samples are awesome! I love that you did them in different ways, so we can see how they behave under different circumstances. Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing all this!

Great thread!

 

Here's my contribution: Now defunct Organic Studios Maganate (Maganese) is very close to new up-and-comer KWZI #23 IG Blue #2. The KWZI is only a touch more blue.

That is the most visual means of use and comparison I have seen yet; wonderful!

      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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
