Recommended Posts

Some time ago Tinjapan send some Sailor LE ink to Sisnistral1 who, in turm, sent the rest of the samples to me. Thank you both of you :) S

Sailor is my favourite ink maker. Sadly their most interesting inks are available only in Japan or from internet retailers. Getting ink from Japan is expensive.

Ink of Witch is one of the inks I would consider adding to my collection. I like it a lot.

The other one is Nostalgia - has anyone used it?

I love this ink!

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

Easily my favorite black-purple or grey-purple from Sailor that I've tried.

The RGB codes are very helpful. Thanks for the detailed review.

Ask not what your fountain pen can do for you, ask what you can do for your fountain pen.

Vis, let me guess, you always see the young woman in the picture?

I really like this ink. Currently waiting for Vanness to get it back in stock.

I really like this one. It does come out black from a wet pen. Then if you look closely, you can see some hints of purple. I love using it at the hospital where we are supposed to use black ink. I can always find a page I've written on when I use one of these almost-but-not-quite-black inks.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

Not for me. It just looks black, and I don't use much black.

I have NO black inks NOR am I interested in black pens. BUT I wanted an Omas 360 & found a full size model that was a very good price & since I had NOT even written with one found it the best choice to "try" before wanting one of the new Arco models. I was VERY happy to receive the pen (even with a MEDIUM nib because it was "soft" & quite a "wet" writer) and used this ink for it's first fill. I loved it & afterwards have used similar "darks/almost blacks" in it. Each combination of the "mystery" inks in this pen have been "fun." I have since found a more preferred 360, yellow with a broad nib & it has appeared thru tracking with arrival in San Franciso. I will surely enjoy it but will always have a fondness for this ink because it made me appreciate a pen I was less than excited about.

A bottle of this, and a bottle of Oku-Yama, I save for those times I want to 'go stealth' and hide the fact that I'm not really using black ink.

 

In a fine or extra-fine nib, only fountain pen ink aficionados can tell that it isn't just black ink, but something special.

Sad to hear that Vanness won't be getting their next shipment of BungBox until December. Still waiting to buy Ink of Witch. Arghhhh

 

On a bright note, I have all the BungBox inks I want, except this one...so there's that.
