Colorverse inks seem to have just shown up to the scene. They are from South Korea and are a little pricey, but my experience so far is very good. The colors are very vibrant and seem to be pretty well behaved so far. What follows is my ink review of Colorverse Quasar, which is one of my favorite colors.... burple. I absolutely LOVE burples of all shapes and sizes. I hope you enjoy the review. I'd love to hear what everyone thinks.





Come see some of my handmade pens!!!

Thank you for the review, this is a nice ink, but as you mentioned, pricey.

I also like burples very much (as opposed to mostly disliking teal leaning inks).

Which other burples would you recommend? my favourite is Diamine Bilberry, and I usually stay away from Noodlers (too saturated and generally not easy to find here in EU)

Thanks for the review! I do love this ink. I zeroed in on it from all of the Colorverse colors. It looks a lot like another ink I really love, Parker Penman Blue. It seems to be much better behaved however.

I have the mini bottle of this ink in a trade.


thoroughly unimpressed for the price. It's not great behaved, it smears a bit, it's more purple than blue, overall just so meh on it for the monstrous amount of money they ask.


if it was $10-12 for 50mL, I'd have much nicer things to say, but it's an ultra premium ink at that price, and the performance doesn't matc.

I really enjoy Colorverse inks, although I dislike their practice of putting in small bottles of differing colors. Great review, and Quasar is a really nice color.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
