What Bottle Of Ink Did You Just Finish?



Recommended Posts

 

Bottles last really long. For me a Lamy cartridge lasts 2-3 weeks, hence a bottle really lasts more than a year, however I somehow managed to build a very large collection, while knowing that these bottles may last a lifetime.

 

Sheesh. I go through a cartridge in about three days. But I'm an old, so I write all kinds of nonsense by hand.

What is this madness called "finish" with a bottle of ink? I have never experienced this, because I keep myself in so many inks that I can avoid it with ease.

 

Although I'm close with my Namiki Blue. Oh-so-close...!

 

I actually liked the question, such a change from which ink did you just buy/open.

Show us those empty bottles!

btw I am planning to refill my Florida (alas with Serenity) but will pretend it is...

I also like finishing inks. I have an extensive (or excessive) collection too, but when I start a bottle, I use it till it's dry. I cannot ink many pens, because maintenance takes a long time after a certain point, and having all my notes written with a single ink for a period of time looks very pleasing to me.

 

Another policy that I have is I acquire the same ink as soon as I start to use it and like its behavior, so I can use the ink again in the future, and I always get the largest bottles for a given ink.

Ha, I never seem to empty a bottle anymore! Too many flavors to choose from!

EM P TY a bottle!? The number of inks I have but I yet to try is so great that I probably never even try all them all before called on. Can’t imagine finishing a bottle.

I just finished a jar of Sailor Jentle Blue. It's my fiction-writing ink of choice, and I've gone through at least ten jars in nine years. Great ink. Worst container. I refuse to use the B word.

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

I also like to preserve my empty bottles as trophies. Sometimes I decant other inks with less useful bottles to more useful ones.

Does it count if the emptying happens by accident?

 

I "emptied" a bottle of Tsuki-yo when I had it in my backpack to put on my desk at work. Except it decided during transit to turn over and the lid got loose, and then it ended up all over my backpack and several things inside. Fortunately, I caught it before the ink caused too much damage to my backpack, and most things inside were able to be cleaned off. A notebook and notepad got stained on the outer edges, but were still usable.

 

But that's the only bottle of ink I've emptied in over three years now.

Maybe I shouldn't say I emptied it, because I haven't used the last drop, but there was finally so little left in my bottle of Pelikan 4001 Violet that I decanted the last few milliliters into a sample vial and discarded the bottle.

Hmm. Last would be either another Quink bottle full of Pilot BB (I decant off a 350ml bottle and am down about 200) or the bottle of Diamine Registrar's I've gotten down to dregs I won't use due to the usual IG sediment.

The 15 ml bottle of Colorverse Hubble Zoom. Am still using the 65 ml bottle. I really, really, really like this color.

I'll post my empty Lamy bottle when I got home, if you're interested. I also like to keep the empties.

I choose to answer this on the household level. Iroshizuku Bamboo Charcoal (*cough* my husband *cough*) and J. Herbin Lierre de Sauvage (*cough* my son *cough*). I feel I should get credit for these empty bottles as I am the pen enabler and did most of the actual pen filling.

 

For the record, I personally use much more ink than the rest of my household combined. I just tend to give my love to many different colors.

Yet another Sarah.

I have too many bottles so it is hard to finish one.

 

I did finish a bottle of Diamine Eclipse over the summer. I am getting very close to finishing a bottle of Diamine Registrar's Ink and a bottle of Encre Classique Gris de Payne.

 

I have recently fallen in love with Akkerman #10 and have been hitting that bottle HARD. I bet I will drain it before the year is out.
