Week #45 / 5 Nov: My Significant Other - 2017 Weekly Ink Project

I find it not lubricating enough. I remember Akkerman #28 being an extremely similar colour but writes somewhat smoother.

Mh, so not all Diamine inks are lubricating inks?

See, I'm planning a mini Diamine haul sometime soon, around 5 30ml bottles from the official website. I'll prioritize blue, blue-black and deep, true red. Can you think of well-lubricating Diamine inks that come in 30ml bottles in these colors from the top of your head?

If my memory serves me right, here's what comes to mind:

Sargasso Sea, Blue Velvet, Wild Strawberry (maybe), Cornflower, Pansy...

 

I don't remember how the others do, but anyway don't get Autumn Oak. That's the driest ink i've ever used.

The feeling of lubrication depends to some degree what pens and paper you're using. Many inks will feel more lubricated on smooth paper, through a wetter flowing pen.

 

I would add Red Dragon, Tchaikovsky and Steel Blue, to your possibles list. :)

Got it, thank you!

Oh. I thought I was imagining that weird sensation while writing on Rhodia and Fabriano.

Thank you for the recommendations!

60 cartridges! Now you can make a full bottle out of it!

 

That was a few years ago :unsure:

There are simply too many beautiful browns :) Every time I think "this is it", another brown catches my eye.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

My one and only (well,.. I wish it were...), Robert Oster's Fire & Ice:

(sorry about the odd page hue shift, I had the worst time trying to present the ink accurately, and ultimately failed. In person it is an almost fluorescent blue-turquoise. The photos in Chrome browser make it look washed out, comparing to how it is in person, photo viewed in Microsoft Edge is super vibrant and is closer to reality).

Still looks pretty nice though!

      @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

      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.
