Whoops, Kaweco Paradise Blue. Looks like it didn’t survive my artsy photo. (Mental note, doodle the name at both the top and bottom next time)

Not usually a "matchy matchy" person either. Bur right now, not counting demonstrators (and what doesn't look good in a clear demonstrator?) of which I have two inked. (TWSBI 580 B stub/Noodler's Apache Sunset & Eco 1.1 stub/KWZI Pine Green)

 

Other than those, I have three inked currently with matching characteristics. (Pelikan M200 Brown Marbled M/KWZI Brown #4, Esterbrook transitional J 2464/Akkerman Shocking Blue, Platinum 3776 Century Borgogne B/Diamine Merlot) The last gets a pretty steady diet of Merlot. I think Brown #4 would be good in too. Almost a Doppelganger for Merlot.

I'll be scanning impressions/reviews of KWZI Pine Green, Brown #4 and El Dorado shortly. They arrived yesterday and I have been using them. (Eco 1.1/M200 M/Al Star 1.1) and comparisons with Merlot and Apache Sunset.

Thanks :)

 

I might have to look into getting a bottle of that... :)

I’ve got a package of cartridges. I don’t usually like to ink the same color twice in a row. But if I keep liking this ink it might well get a bottle. Maybe try it with an italic next...

Very nice.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Here is a scan of the same sheet, rather than a photo.

Some impressive matching going on! I am sooo late joining this party, but I'm determined to take part this year as well!

I regularly match pens with inks. Here are a few:

Funny —when I bought this pen many years ago, I thought that I must have been one of the few people who really liked the unusual color scheme (for Pelikan!). Who knew so many of us have one?!

The Pelikan M400 white/tortie is obviously a popular pen.

 

I recommend always check on Amazon.de for their price before you buy one. ;)

Love the pens and their inks ... really nice photos this month. Personally I like to match pens and ink, so I show what I'm using at the moment. On the photo, I show you my grail pen ... a Pelikan M101N Tortoiseshell Red, that's always inked up with a red/brown/purple ink. In this case, it's inked up with Mont Blanc William Shakespeare Velvet Red. A nice combination...

And here's another one that I'm currently using: the new Pelikan M120 Iconic Blue, inked up with Robert Oster Blue Water Ice.

Beautiful, subtle combinations, especially the unusual Oster ink with the Iconic Blue pen. Very nice!

      @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.
