Matching inks in some smaller pens. I especially like C D'A Amazon in my 1980s retro Kaweco 'Soap Green' Skyline Sport, with its soft Perkeo-like nib.

 

Apologies for wonky photo..........

Noihvo,

 

Thanks again. I will definitely look for them.

I think 4001 is the darker blue in this? If so, I like. And the combination overall is very nice. Not too bright and full of shading.

Well, this is a bit late because I didn't get the photos taken until earlier this week, and then didn't get them downloaded from my phone to my laptop until this afternoon. :blush:

Paper in all cases is EcoQua A5 85 gr/m2 dot grid Bioprima Paper.

Of course I just noticed now that I've misspelled Coord-ink-ation every time.... :headsmack:

You got the first one right, LOL.

 

I once wanted a blue striped M405/605/805 very much, but somehow the desire went away. Money saved!

I think the striated blue is my favorite color of the Söuveran series. I could have save a little money and gotten an M400 instead, but there was just something about the rhodium plating setting off the trim -- even more than the plain gold trim did, for that color barrel.
Of course my first Pelikan was an older M400 Brown Tortoise and the rhodium would have looked weird. And if I ever have the money for a striated Red one, I would probably also get an M400 (did they ever do the Red as an M405?).

Hmmm. This one is an EF, the Brown Tortoise is a very juicy and springy F, and my M405 Stresemann is a B. So I guess I should maybe think about getting a striated Red with an M nib. Unless I decide to have the nib on the on the Stresemann reground... maybe something like a cursive italic. Then I'd have to get a red one with a B nib, wouldn't I? :rolleyes:

Late to the party -again-; here is my entry (I apologise for the poor quality photo):

 

P1090349b.jpg

 

The pens and inks matches:

- Montblanc G.B. Shaw with Iroshizuku Syo-Ro ( :blush:not Tsuki-Yo like I wrote on the paper...)

- Visconti Voyager Deep Burgundy with iroshizuku Yama Budo

- Montblanc Schiller with Monteverde FireOpal

- Kamilea Kahakai with Diamine Aqua Lagoon

(The paper is Rhodia)

Looking great!

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

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

It's been overcast and rainy lately, so the photo is not very well-lit, but you can still see a bit of sheen in the ink and shimmer in the pen (I think the camera app cheated and added some contrast and saturation, too)fpn_1528493871__04_april.jpgfpn_1528493885__04_april2.jpgfpn_1528494235__04_april3.jpg

Even the sheen on the Midnight ink matches the pen. Smart match!
