The most expensive ink I own (owned) is (was) Sheaffer Skrip Black. Unfortunately I couldn't prepare a review of it, because I forgot about the $nk week and sent the bottle to a friend of mine, who was willing to give it a go. Why 'the most expensive'? Because I had paid some money and received nothing in return (except for a headache). I believe it was a bad batch or something, as many people love Sheaffer's ink and I have never had any issues with any other ink by Sheaffer. This one was terrible: very poor flow, clogging, feathering (really massive) and bleedthrough. I hope that it was really just a bad batch.

So sorry for your bad experience!

Thanks LizEF, thanks Lgsoltek.

I always look forward to both of your posts. Your handwriting is adorable :wub:

Thanks, Lgsoltek. Happily I've treated myself to a bottle of Aurora Black - now *that* is a black ink for me.

 

Wow, Tas, what a great post. I'm glad I'm not that much into black inks. I do admire your drawings and doodles, though.

 

I can't remember which of my inks was the most expensive on the basis of price per millilitre - probably either MB William Shakespeare or MB Leo Tolstoy. GvFC Moss Green was the most expensive per bottle, but I have also Iroshizuku Yama-Budo, which would be the most expensive if I hadn't bought it from Japan (got a pretty good deal on this one).

      @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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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.
