On Robert Oster's shop website Barossa Grape is described as follows: " Flows on like a Cab Sauv, dries on like a light Shiraz with excellent shading"



I enjoy this ink although in some pens it looks boring. In order to fully enjoy it - given that you like such hues - broader or really wet nib would help. In old Waterman

In a fine nib, does this ink look nearly black, or can one see that it is a purple?

 

It will depend on how wet is the nib. On a wet nib, yes... it will look black.

Good to know. Maybe I'll be able to try it at the San Francisco Pen Show next week!

Nothing's lost ;) Now you have a reason to make a second order. With his pace of introducing new colors, RObert Oster has probably another 50 new inks on his website :) A lot to choose from. I'm tempted by Graphite.

Yeah me too.. but Graphite is no where to be found... :bawl: :bawl:

 

I did ask him if he can "whip" a batch of Graphite... :D

 

 

if you see Graphite on his site, you know he is listening to his fans... ;) ;)

So the image of graphite somewhere on the web was only to tease us ;)

 

 

Yes and Yes.... He did have Graphite at one point.... I think I read somewhere he was discontinuing graphite and black.. (don't quote me.. I can't remember the source, maybe his facebook page)..

 

In any case, when I saw Graphite I emailed him asap.. and ask if he can whip out a batch of Graphite. :D

 

 

I am sure he will .. he is lovely like that. :wub: :wub:

Interesting color. Reminds me of J Herbin Poussiere de Lune (which I actually didn't like all that much), and maybe the scans I've seen of KWZI Grey Plum.

Thanks for the review. This one is a maybe for me....

In my pens, Poussiere de Lune is a dusty but distinctly reddish purple. I am happy to see some dusty purples that lean toward blue rather than red.

@vis A 2nd order might make me lose my relationship, house and home :D I might be tempted if he keeps putting out stunning blues/blue-greys and greens...

 

@Cyber I just made my order a few days ago and asked for a bottle of Graphite, he had them in stock. In his emails he let me know that Graphite is only available through direct order from him. Hence I ordered directly from him rather than through ebay/website. I'm sure you can get some! :) I also ordered the new Summer Storm... Will post a pic once I get it :)

Nyx!!!! What is Summer Storm?? Is it a Blue Gray?

I'm sorry o benevolent ink goddess! :notworthy1: :notworthy1: I can't wait to see Graphite out of your stubby wet nibs!!

 

Yes it is the "Unnamed Blue Grey" but has now been named Summer Storm. I saw it on Yagan Kiely's blog macchiatoman.com. He mentioned it's not so saturated but the colour just calls to me :wub:

      @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
    • Texas42
      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.

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
