platinum cassis black - extraordinary colour change and shades with most nibs - particularly the broader wetter ones.

Another vote for Platinum Blue Black. Great colour, and it's also the EDC Iron Gall ink, low maintenance, well-behaved and even comes in cartridges.

I almost coincide with @gyasko. Just add ESSRI.

 

ESSRI

Salix

MB BB

 

MB Blue-black was my go-to blue-black for decades. Now it is mainly Rohrer & Klingner Salix or ESSRI depending on fancy.

 

It is true Salix is a dry ink, but I have not had any meaningful trouble with it yet. I'm curious about why @RJS didn't like it.

I went with Pelikan 4001 BB as my backup to Salix.  For some reason which i can’t quite figure out, i don’t like it as much.  I felt the same way about Lamy BB when it was still an iron gall.

For me, the closest of the IGs to Salix I have found is Platinum Blue Black. It dries a *little* blue-er than Salix, but is otherwise comparable in terms of behaviour. 

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

      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.
