Brownish Co-Razy View

Here are the brownish inks I have in my very modest collection. The scan is a tiny bit off in that these all look just a slight bit more brown in real life.

 

The Private Reserve is from a bottle I've had since the late 90's and may be a first edition bottle. I have a couple of the very early bottles with the computer-printer labels. This is Copper Burst. I also have Naples Blue and a green.

 

The old Sheaffer is a small bottle of the Burgundy I got free with my new Sheaffer touchdown Legacy (#840) around 1998.

 

The rest are new inks.

You have a nice collection of inks. Grenade is my number one choice among these.

That vintage Sheaffer burgundy looks comparatively purple.

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

I was surprised how purple it came out. I hadn't used it in quite a while and I remember it as more, well, Burgundy. Which is why I included it. Not sure if it's changed in the bottle, or if my memory is suspect.

 

I haven't seen the new Copper Burst. I suspect I should add some water to this Copper Burst before using it. Or at least filter it. It seems to have a fair amount of precipitate, or at least dark splotches that stick to the inside of the glass bottle.

 

And from the post last week about the new Manuscript Brown, I may have to try it. I like the reddish brown of the old formula, but I liked the look of the more true brown of the new, as well. Though I do like the new Sheaffer Brown, even if many think it too dull.

Thanks for re-posting! I definitely have the ink on the left. But in it's defense, when you use the older GMB on cream paper, it really does look like old ink. Great stuff.

When you play with the copper burst, watch out for ink crystals. You want them to dissolve before you put them in your pen.

Andrew, the new stuff is much wetter when writing and I've found it be less fussy.

Thanks, that's good to know. I'll have to check it out. I like the new color better, and for a red-brown, I've already got Sailor Jentle Grenade.
