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.

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
