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!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
