there was a smidgen of interest is a separate thread for turquoise ink. Amberlea suggested the person who seconded the motion might just do it, but the conversation went off in another direction, and it did not happen. So I did it. I have no new review to add to this opening post but the link above will take you to the twenty or so turquoise inks I scanned and put in the blue thread. Also on that page you will find a picture of Lamy Turquoise that looks more accurate on my screen than does my own scan.

"Sheaffer Turquoise" is actually Sheaffer Peacock Blue.

Sailor Yuki-Akari. I'm not a fan of this ink; the shade is too pale and it is a dry ink.

Thanks for all the support for this new thread! I am seeing some scans that differ from what I see with the same ink, but that was true of my own scans as well. Maybe this is just a tough color for scanners. It was interesting to see a scan from someone else of Noodler's Turquoise, which looks close to blue-black -- exactly my experience.

Here are a few of my most used Turquoise-y blues, with the last few moving towards blue-green:

Bondi, Pacific, South Seas, and Fire and Ice are the ones I use most, and keep loaded in pens.

Wait, you are missing some, where is Krisha Peacock?

You noticed!

 

Actually, Krishna Peacock is good, but not great. Krishna does spectacular inks in the warm range, but cool range is not as impressive, IMHO. I can send you samples of some of the ones I have, if you're interested in trying them out...

Did you realize that Peacock ghosts through?

 

And I'd enjoy small samples, thank you.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
