We trade ink in 5ml vials. You can buy them from Ebay or from fpninkvials at g-mail dot com (see the first post of the global ink exchange thread). I could send you some empty vials if you want to trade with me. You might also want a blunt syringe to make filling them easier.

 

As well as my previously posted ink list, I'll also trade Hero 329 pens (tested to write properly) for ink.

I have some Diamine Emerald and Turquoise.

 

I think I am currently using a cartridge (from a mixed selection from Diamine) which is Umber. Its a great colour.

 

In fact due to an error whilst ordering I ended up with 3 bottles of Turquoise, so if anyone wants to swop a bottle of something interesting for a bottle of Turquoise then I would be happy to do so.

I've got 1 each nearly full Noodler's Zhivago and Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris I would like to trade. I desperately need a waterproof black that does not bleed through or feather. Brand not important.

 

Would also like J. Herbin The de Lie.

 

Am in London and can trade in person if possible.

Can I edit my post? I now have a bottle of Oxblood and would like to add future acquisitions without clogging up the thread.

Hi... I am fascinated by the concept of a sample exchange, but I'm a little unclear as to how it works in practice. Is it a simple case of posting here the inks that one has and the someone contacts you via P.M. offering what they have? Trawling through all the posts does seem a little unwieldy.... Or is there some sort of database available?

 

On a practical level I am assuming that one buys some of the (hopefully leak-proof) 5ml containers from ebay and from then it's a case of a private exchange via the Royal Mail?

 

I have alsways used cartridges and only recently acquired a couple of pens suitable for proper filling and my only ink is Hobbycraft's sepia. I found the colour too dark so have lightened it slightly by adding just a little distilled water - I wouldn't like to offer that one up in exchange unless someone has really unusual taste - but will be buying some inks soon. I rather like the look of the Diamine range - my tastes run to brighter shades so when I get the inks and some vials I will post again.

Hi Rob.

 

How it works is people post a list of the inks they're offering. You contact them via PM to ask for a sample, and they send you it in the post, usually in a 5ml vial.

 

You don't need to pay postage or offer a sample in return.

 

Seeing as how I'm posting anyway here's an updated list:

 

Diamine

Imperial Purple

Oxblood

Imperial Blue [c]

Jet Black [c]

 

Noodler's

Baystate Blue

Bulletproof Black

 

Private Reserve

Electric DC Blue

hi guys.,,...

 

i'm not sure this is the right place...but i have a brand fire new bottle of Mont Blanc Burgundy Red.

 

It doesn't agree with me at all and I'm actually quite dissappointed but that's best left for an ink review...

 

My point is..it's here..I only inked one pen with it so it's as new..so if somebody fancies a swap then please feel free to email me...

 

On the plus side I am quite enjoying using Pelikan Edelstein Topaz so it's not all bad :)

 

cheers.

I have the following DIAMINE ink samples available to offer. I do not require any colours in exchange. I have a stock of sample vials.

 

As at this date, all the samples are BRAND NEW and have all been reviewed in the Ink Reviews forum with accurate scans.

 

Please be advised that Diamine Registrar's Ink is a modern FP-friendly IRON GALL ink which requires thorough cleaning before and after.
