I was just about to proudly announce that I was this close to finishing my 30ml bottle of Diamine Ancient Copper, one of my very first inks (and a favourite from day 1) - and then I ordered a 100ml bottle of it from The Writing Desk... :doh: I know the small PVC bottle still counts, but it kind of feels like a Sisyphean task now. Also, I'm hoping that my new bottle is from the same crud-free batch as the first one; the crud is harmless, but unsightly, and it slightly diminishes the perceived quality of the ink.

 

The other two inks that I'm confident will be emptied this year are Diamine Oxblood (down to about 50%) and Diamine Eau de Nil (still about 75% left but will be my next exclusive journalling colour; approximately 20ml are used up that way for each Midori MD A5 notebook I fill), both of which I'll be repurchasing in the 80ml glass bottle. I wish they had Oxblood in the big 100ml bottles, they would sell like hot dogs with such a popular colour.

 

As for the fate of the emptied PVC bottles, I'll keep them for now, stripped of their labels, to put ink in them that I want to get rid of by giving it away. Glass bottles are a big reason for my buying preference for certain brands (Sailor especially - if anyone has Sailor bottles they don't want, I'd be more than happy to take them off your hands!), and I try to buy bottles in sizes and designs that will be useful for later refilling and decanting.

 

Will be updating when I hit bottom!

Well it's 2 1/2 years into this fancy ink lark and I just washed out my first empty bottle, J Herbin's Rouille D'Ancre!

I thought it was going to be Scabiosa, which I'm scraping the bottom of (and which is a bigger bottle, so more ink has been used), but the "Gentleman's Pink" just pipped it.

Those two and the marvelous De Atramentis Marone (green version!) are the only inks I keep a reserve bottle of.

I am this close (imagine your two fingers held closely together here if you will) to finishing a 10mL bottle of J. Herbin's Eclat de Sapphir, which will be the first "real" bottle of ink that I have ever finished. I've been this close for many months, though, because I have so many inks that I only reach for this one rarely.

 

What I did actually finish up recently was my entire stock of J. Herbin Perle Noir, but that was only 12 cartridges worth, and doesn't have quite the same feeling of triumph as draining an actual bottle.

I finished a 30ml bottle of Diamine Evergreen, or rather it finished me. I poured what little was left into the cap and dipped my Kanwrite Desire into it. I then noticed my hands covered in ink and a crack somewhere in the bottle or the cap. Into the trash it went, so little ink was left. I then noticed a few dark green spots on the left leg of my beige pants, and some lighter smudges on the right. I sprayed and toothbrushed some Möstenböcker's Lift Off 3, blotted with an old sock two times on the spots and left the pants sit on my washing machine until the next morning. This morning I sprayed some Shout on the already quite faded spots, and washed the pants in Tide. They came out beautifully clean and spotless! Now I need a new dark green ink.

Visconti Blue, the old glass bottle version. I bought a new (plastic) bottle and am decanting it into the old bottle as I love the old Visconti glass bottles and have one for each colour. But, the new bottle is larger than the old one.

I have almost 20 bottles of various ink of 50ml+. I haven't finished any. Must take out my pens with broad nibs and write like crazy! The Caran d'Ache Organic Brown bottle is looking promising...

I recently emptied an 80 ml bottle of Diamine Sherwood Green. My last fill I was unable to do so without putting it in a sample vial, after filling I have about 4 ml or so left. I have it in my Pelikan M200 Brown Marbled with an M nib at the moment.

Well -- it's finished, but not because I used it up...

 

Opened my bottle of Levenger Blue Bahama to find a layer of white fuzz on the top of the ink. Goodby 45 (of 50) ml...

Well, Diamine Eau de Nil is gone, fallen prey to some vicious mould. I first noticed a spot on the inside of a Wing Sung 601 demonstrator, then went on to sniff the bottle and was greeted by that typical greenhouse smell - down the drain it went. It's a shame, the colour is gorgeous, but I still have another teal (Sailor Jentle/Shikiori Yama-Dori) and several dozens of other inks to use up, so all in all not a terrible loss. I might get another 80ml of Eau de Nil once I'm through with the others.
