The Odd Ink Sniffer...

Recommended Posts

So I am just sitting here working on some math for college pondering over the fact that I just turned 30 and wondering where the last few years of my life went..

 

As I'm writing with Noodler's Black ink I catch of whiff of the inks aroma and Its a familiar pleasant smell lol.. I don't know what it is but I just really like the smell of Noodler's black ink. It's like when I'm writing with it I can't help lifting my pen to my nose to smell it..

 

Really weird..I know.

 

But now I'm wondering if anyone has any inks that they just really like the smell of? Or am I just a complete weirdo..(Don't answer that lol)

I have some scented inks from that I like to smell. One is cinnamon and the other is whiskey. Regular ink is not an enticing to me, but I do smell it once and a while, partly to make sure it has not gotten any mold or turned into something untrustworthy.

The only ink I have with a distinct odor is Diamine Sargasso Sea. It has a slightly funky smell. Like the sea. LOL

 

It's a good thing though because when diluted it has the same look as Iroshizuku Asa-gao. When I've forgotten which I have inked in a pen one whiff and I know which it is.

 

So yes, I do sniff my ink (sometimes).

OP, you said I shouldn't answer that question about "weird", so I won't :-). Really, though, I do not sniff ink. I don't have any inks with an aroma strong enough for me to smell it over a house full of toy breed dogs. Too bad, sometimes! :-p I love the smells of honey, cinnamon, and vanilla. I'd enjoy smelling THOSE scents while writing :-).

Noodler's Texas Bluebonnet. Don't know the smell, but I almost always have a pen loaded and with me with this ink.

Peace and Understanding

Haha Well I don't go out of my way to run around sniffing inks. But for some reason when I write with noodler's black it has a distinct smell to it that I kind of like. For me its like "the scent of fountain pens" lol . Its not really strong but it has a distinct smell that just represents fountain pens to me, when I think of fountain pens that smell pops into my head. While I'm writing sometimes I will lift the pen up and smell it but its not like I'm a huffing ink or anything haha.

The smell of Noodler's Black reminds me of the smell of india ink, which I remember from my days as an art student. It's been a couple of decades since I've actually used or smelled india ink, but for some reason, Noodler's Black reminds me of it. To me it just smells like what I'd expect ink to smell like.

Not sure I have ever really done much ink sniffing, but when I first got my resin Noodler's Konrad (Red Mesa Tortoise), I had heard how bad the smell was. I actually thought it was quite pleasant and not overly strong. While I don't do it anymore, the last time I did that smell was long gone. Sort of reminded me of "new car smell", but different.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
