Actually I am studying dentistry and will be working on patients soon, so maybe I will have to look more deeply into the ink properties.

 

Thanks for everyone's help and keep'em coming!

 

Goodness! First dental colleague that I've come across in FPN!

I am very glad that a young dental colleague is thinking to use FP. Beware though that in patient clinics using FP may be difficult, as it is quite a rough environment. Inks will also have to be fast drying and permanent.

I now have more of a desk job, as an oral pathologist, and this allows me to use FP far more than when I was a general practitioner.

Nice meeting you again.

I second the recommendation for Cult Pens Deep Dark Inks (exclusive to them by Diamine). Additionally you might consider DeAtrementis Deep Water Obsession series. Both series are appropriate in a professional setting and are quite well behaved.

Nice to meet you! I'm just starting my 4th year, so I am starting to work with patients. Maybe some day later in life I will have a desk job aswell, since I am not sure which direction I will be going yet.

 

While I may not always be able to write everything with a FP (especially at the clinic), I can still use it some times and especially during lectures and the like. I prefer fast drying anyway, wet ink only gives me dirty hands and smudged papers lol. The only permanent ink I have so far is Mont Blanc Permanent Grey (Meisterstück Ink), so maybe I will have to use that one for some time, but I really like many of the suggestions here.

I use Diamine Sherwood Green, but have been thinking about the even darker Green-Black.

 

Note also that how dark the ink looks on the paper depends on how wet your pen is, and how absorbent the paper is.

- Wetter pens seem to write darker. More ink = more dye. But more ink takes longer for the ink to dry.

 

- Less absorbent paper seems to dry darker. The ink dries on top of the paper, leaving the dyes on top of the paper, not hidden inside the paper as would be with an absorbent paper. But less absorbent paper takes longer for the ink to dry.

I noticed some Noodler's inks like Kung te Chen and Legal Lapis mentioned. They are nice, but not as dark as the OP is hinting at.

 

Noodler's standard blue-black is extremely dark and probably should have been called black-blue. The black part is bullet-proof if exposed to water.

      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
