Need Some Help Finding An Ink To Match My New Pen

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!
I just purchased a Pilot Vanishing Point from a local pen store, and naturally I want an ink to match. Any ideas?

The pen: http://cdn-tp1.mozu.com/6639-8588/cms/8588/files/ff8a8740-e169-43dd-96a9-0e81680d8b31

I recommend that you should look through some blue Ink Reviews on here, to see if there is one that you like.

 

However, if I had this pen and wanted to match it up with a great ink, I would use Diamine Tchaikovsky from the Music Set. (Now available in 30ml refill bottles from Diamine)

Diamine Majestic Blue, Sargasso Sea or Bilberry.

A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

If you want to try a Pilot ink (they do seem to do particularly well in Pilot pens), how about Iroshizuku Asa-gao?

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Pilot Iroshizuku - Deep Blue (Deep Azure Blue), bit pricy but a nice blue...

 

on a budget I would go for Parker Quink Royal Blue (good allrounder in my opinion)

I vote Sailor / Kobe #14 Maya Lapis. It's one of my favorites. Below is a writing sample from Saskia Madding.

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

Levenger Cobalt is just about that hue.

I'm going to go against the grain and recommend an ink I've never used, but still find appealing: Iroshizuku Shin-Kai -- Deep Blue Sea.
