Calllifolio Équinoxe 6: An Ink With A Mind Of Its Own

Recommended Posts

There are couple of very good reviews, this is just to give an idea of the metamorphosis this ink goes through, and how it looks next to others.

 

Notice the first doodles in row 1 and row 3: when it starts it wants to be a (not purplish but certainly not as greenish) blue, closer to Souten, but eventually settles on a green blue, closer to Kon Peki, but still distinct, even if this shot doesn't capture that perfectly. When it starts it also has a lot of sheen. This is with a Faber Castell Ambition in extra fine, on a Rhodia n. 8 pad. By the time I started rows 11 and 13 after filling in the other colours, it had gone back to its darker self; it was kept in a box in the few minutes in between, I don't think we can talk about evaporation: sediments??

Row 4: Ama Iro, Kon Peki, Souten back side of the nib, Souten, Tsuyu Kusa.

 

Row 6: Chiku Rin, Vert Empire, Verde Muschiato, Ina Ho, Asa Gao.

 

Row 8: Orange Indien, Fuyu Gaki, Mandarin, Inti, Myosotis.

 

Row 10: Ancient Copper, Rouge Hematite, Diamine Poppy Red, Lie de thé, Ajisai.

 

Row 12: Verdigris, Perle Noire Pilot extra fine, perle Noire Muji fine, yama Guri.

 

In the end I don't mind the colour shift since I've come to expect it, I really like this colour in its different variants anyway, and it looks good coming out of the pearwood pen, but I can understand why it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

 

Vert Empire is misbehaving and looking a lot darker than it is, there's always one in the family shot!

 

Edit: reshooting just for Vert Empire

I don't think any of those squares of bright blue ink show L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio Equinoxe (6). :( That is a teal ink that's never close to Sailor Jentle Souten.

 

I believe you might have a mislabelled bag like the one that I have, and that Lgsoltek has. See This review thread :(

OK then, you have a mislabelled bottle rather than a mislabelled pouch. It's not Equinoxe (6). That's a teal ink that looks more like Sailor Yama dori than Souten.

It's really irritating that the "wrong" ink comes in bottles and pouches. "sigh" :(

 

Do we know what the actual colour is yet? :huh:

      @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.
