For this week, we are picking the wettest ink in our collection!

 

As usual, don't forget to share with us your choice of ink, your writing, drawing, doodling or anything with the ink in this thread. You can take a photo, make a scan, or even better, write letters and CRV reviews (what is a CRV?) and mail them to the many ink pals here. You are welcome to check back on this thread even when we've gone past this week.

Click here to read more about this community project. Links to the two previous links can be found there too.

I am still not really wholly sure which of my inks are the wettest, I wrote a pretty rough shortlist of 5 and this was my top choice - Monteverde Brown Sugar, one of their newer colours. The box claims it has improved ink-flow quality and lubrication, and it seems to be so.

 

It was one of the wettest and just a really gorgeous colour. I've put it in a BB-nibbed Artpen for now, but will try it in an italic later in the week.

The Merlot seems wetter than all of the others below it. Red Cashmere the only one close.

The funny thing is I see very little difference between them on the paper, too... the scanner actually shows their differences much better!

After a few days of really paying attention, I'm thinking the Van Gogh Starry Night is the wettest of them all...

I had forgotten about Golden Wattle, but it's up there anyway, and I bet no-one else has this one...

(except Amber, who has at least one, and possibly two or more, of every ink) (ever).

I do like Merlot. Not quite red or purple. I feel I can get away with it at work.

I LOVE :wub: this ink. I flows well in all pens including the dryest, the color is one of my all time favorites ( a bluer fuscia) and though it is suuuuper wet, I still find the dry time decent (says the lady who walks around the office with a notebook containing blotting paper :P.

 

Honestly, I do not have anything bad to say about this ink other than it may feather on the cheeeapest papers I found but hey, most of the inks I like do and I try to steer clear from the office copier paper (at home I have Clairefontaine DCP :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

      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

      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.
