Nostalgia - Bung Box

Recommended Posts

Bung Box is japanese retailer. They offer wide variety of pens and inks. Also Sailor makes some exclusives for them.

When I first saw internet samples of Nostalgia I thought "wow - This is the One".

I wanted to try it. Cyber6 who is amazing ink enabler send me a sample. I'm really grateful because she's spared me disappointment. Yup. It's the first time I kind of dislike the ink I enjoyed so much on scans. And scans weren't bad, they were fairly accurate. It's just the color lacks richness and depth on most of the papers. I see no reason to pay 40 $ for an ink that looks good only on best papers.

I'm kind of undecided. I bought a bottle of this a few weeks ago and haven't had the chance to use it yet. It really does look very nice in scans and in your review. Hopefully I won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the review. I bought a bottle of this a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't opened it, yet.

Oh no, Vis, I had hopes that this one would make you and Cyber6 grin from ear to ear.

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

In this review, Nostalgia looks beautiful. Maybe I'll see it in person at the SF Pen Show.

 

Vanness Pens says they'll be there with their Bung Box inks. You can even order in advance and they'll bring what you want.

I just read that, but I've also been looking at Octopus inks - Pinie and Karamell.

 

Oh inks... why do you have to be so appealing?

Excellent review. Especially the 18 comparisons, and done like that and not just swabs.

I too find the ink okay but not good enough to buy it.

To quote you: "I see no reason to pay 40 $ for an ink that looks good only on best papers".... what a good motto! I think I'll give up on coughing out my money on ink like that plus on an ink (brand) that is such a pain in the ahh, y'know that it not only costs that much in the first place but then is finally so hard to order and get and end up having to pick it up from customs too....
