Blackstone Golden Wattle

It's a pretty yellow with a touch of orange. It may be prone to crystallise on the nib, although it can be wiped away easily.

Thanks for this nice review, LG. Looks good on the Maruman but on the copy paper it looks like MB Golden Yellow, i.e. orange - good old Indian Yellow.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

It's a pity I don't like yellow, or I would buy it just for the name. (That's why I ended up with a sample of Dragon's napalm; orangey-pink is not my game, but how can you resist a name like that?)

LG, I love your reviews and your doodles.

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

Very nice review.

 

Can someone explain why it seems that yellow inks form crystals on nibs? I have tried many yellow inks - R&K Helianthus is an example - and they all to do this. I really like yellow ink for highlighting and making side notes, but I haven't found one that doesn't do this.

What kind of time frame are you talking about - a few days, a couple weeks, a month or two? I haven't noticed any crystals with Skrip Yellow in my Sheaffer school pen or with the MB Golden Yellow in any of the several pens I've tried it in. The Skrip is maybe going on two months now, with the MB ranging from a few days to 2-3 weeks.

The crystals or "nib crud" begins usually within a week, possibly two. I generally clean my pens every 2-3 weeks anyway. But the last time I used Helianthus, I noticed the "gunk" forming within a few days on my Lamy Studio (gold nib). Part of the issue could be that I live in a dry climate. I like Montblanc inks, so I will keep the Golden Yellow in mind.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
