British Ink Sample Exchange


Carrie

Recommended Posts

Hi Chris,

 

I'd happily try a British ink exchange.

 

I've not tried Waterman's red or Lamy green from your list.

 

Inks I can offer that don't appear on your list include:

 

Noodlers: Baystate Blue (dangerous!) or Navy (a misleadingly named Greeny Blue).

Diamine: Sapphire Blue, Indigo, Imperial Blue, Imperial Purple, BlueBlack, Washable Blue, Prussion Blue, Florida Blue.

MontBlanc: Blue, Purple, Green

Watermans: BlueBlack, Green

 

Let me know if you want to try any of these and I'll send a PM with my address.

 

Best regards,

Andy

If only I had found this forum BEFORE I moved to Australia!

 

Anyhoo, rather than incur the outrageous postage rates to ship ink samples out to Australia, would people be kind enough to post pictures of writing samples with the various inks they own?

 

My collection of FPs has thus far only extended to Parker pens of various description but I have just received a Waterman that I would like to try with something other than Quink ink. I don't really want to waste money on a hit or miss purchase of various inks so it would be great if some of the guess work was removed from the equation if I could see examples of how the various inks write.

 

Pretty please????

If you head over to the Ink Reviews board, I think you'll find what you're after. The vast majority of reviews have pictures of the ink in question.

Hi UK traders!

 

Is anyone here still actively trading?

 

I'm based in Northamptonshire. I have a large stock of plastic vials, microfuge tubes, etc. in return for samples.

 

In terms of inks, I do have some new unusual inks from the USA like Noodler's White Peacock, and also a few Dr Ph. Martins Hydrus sets if anyone would like to try these as inks.

 

Please PM me, and I will try contacting some of you via PM in the coming days...

IrisEve, it would be useful if you list your inks. If you have something interesting, I'm sure vials can be found ;-).

 

Update on my inks:

I'm not trading CdA inks anymore. The rest is as listed.

Adam
