Pif Samples


Recommended Posts

After discovering a small local shop that carries vials and bottles, And receiving a few samples myself from a PiF friend I'm now offering a sample of each J.Herbin "Stormy Grey" and Lavenger "Amethyst" Samples are approx 3ml in a small glass vial.


Recipients must be in the contiguous 48 US states. It would also be appreciated if the empty bottle could be returned after samples have been enjoyed. Please simply state which of the two samples you'd prefer or both, Ideally for new enthusiasts, or those wanting to try new colors but open to all. Will decide on Friday unless samples are already taken by then.


First come first serve. One of each. Additional samples of other inks to come later.

And thank you... We will send your vial back with a couple of other samples...



Thanks Kindly, and If you'd like your sample bottles back, just let me know. Hope you're enjoying the ink sample, and sorry again to hear of the Stormy Grey samples fate. I thought a plastic bag, foam, bubble mailer and Fragile glass labels were sufficient. I'll have to step up the protection further for the Levenger Amethyst Going out next.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
