Oh yes :wub:

This looks like my beloved 54th Massachusetts (that I poured down the drain after years of frustration)

Does this fella behave?

Thanks for the review. I'd have to see this one in person to see whether it leans more teal or more grey....

Don't know about this one, but in my experience most of the Birmingham inks I've tried (although admittedly only a handful so far) have been on the wet side, except for USS Requin, which I had hard starts with. I've put a couple into vintage pens with no apparent ill effect (and right now have diluted Smithfield Street Bridge Truss Blue in a Parker 61 with a capillary filler -- and the only reason it's diluted is because I'm working on starting to flush the pen out to get pens out of rotation and put other ones in, and to try a bunch of inks I've been acquiring...).

Man, if I had known you were having issues with 54th MA, I would have taken it off your hands....

I would say more greyish.

Birmingham Thomas Melon Evergreen is coming up, this one I would describe as a teal.

 

Oxidized Brass behaves pretty good, I agree with Ruth that these inks are mostly on the wet side.

Ha. Thanks Ruth. I like you too much to have done that.

 

I thought I whooped it following Sandy1's Photoflo recipie but no. I was going through (and still am) zero tollerance phase and I'd given the 54th far too many chances. I SO wanted it to work in a pen, ANY PEN.

 

I may, like my recent revistwith Pelikan's 4001 Blue Black get hold of a decent batch.

 

This Birmingham ink has gone on the wish list along with, Southside Dark Fern Moss, Riddle Green & Steel Building Smoking Iron.

Yeah, but I LIKE 54th MA. It behaved very well in my ebonite Konrad.

Tried it in my Konrad, both Ahabs and both working Nib Creepers :unsure: .

 

I love hearing though that it's working for others and seeing it posted here every now and then :).

Thank you for the great review. Interesting color, but not one that I would buy.
