Writing sample of the Korean ink 3 Oysters giwa, rather than a full review. Giwa is dark gray with a tinge of green. North Americans would describe it as slate. Fans of murky greens will like this one. Kim Jong-hae is a poet born in Busan, South Korea.

Thank you for the sample. I would love to get your opinion of the formulation. Is it wet, dry, lubricated, etc? Thank you so much!

Neat! If I may say so, I see less a tinge of green but more a hint of bronze. "Slate" sounds good. And... nice poetry!!!

Bronze is a good way of putting it, just on the border of a green patina.

 

I havent used the ink in enough pens to get a great idea of properties, probably. In a Platinum Preppy with a medium nibs, its smooth and flows nicely, moderately saturated and just a little shading, a fluid experience writing these few lines. Its definitely not dry.

I have the 3 Oysters Mustard ink and really love it, because it is such a unique color! -- in my opinion! I will be very quick to order the other "colors," if they too are somewhat unique! I know that the word unique could mean different things to different people. Just let me say ---- the Mustard is NOT the color of fresh "store bought mustard" used on sandwiches ----- NO! --- NO! --- I don't know how to describe the color! Could be "brown mustard." or dirty mustard--- But the word "dirty" there should NOT mean something that is spoiled, or soiled!!!!!! If you have the other 3 Oysters colors, please tell me if these colors are unique! I am really ready buy them if they are unique! ---- Chas. Skinner

      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
