    I got a few of the Krishna inks, but I have to say I'm kind of disappointed in Anokhi. I put it in my pen (a Woodshed Co pen with a JoWo nib), and after two days the ink changed color. Not just on paper, but in the pen. It now looks more like Shigure than anything else. Do you think it was the interaction with the nib? Or air? Am I going to have to use it with dip pens to get the color that is in the bottle? Just wondering if anyone else had this happen with this ink.

    Latest ink acquisition are the special / limited edition release inks for Anata Burando in Japan. Many thanks to Sammyo for trading ink for a pen...and for sending candies and gifts!

    We received two bottles of the black (Ryu Nou), one bottle each of the Purple (Jyakou) and green (Kiyara), and while we weren't too interested in the yellow (Hinoku) Sam threw in a sample vial of that as well. Now I need to use up the Mystery Ink #16 and Mystery Ink #17 that are currently occupying my daily carry pens and make space to try these ones.

    I think you are going to live the Kiriya, the colour and the smell are probably my favourite... Although the smell of the Ryu-nou is also lovely.

    Some very interesting inks entering the market these days. I’m waiting on some bottles of Ink Industries inks from Taiwan.

    Gave up on the sample idea and bought a bottle of MB Antoine de St Exupery.

    This turned into an interesting mistake on my part. I picked the charming box with the Fox on it and received the other St Exupery ink, which is a lovely red/orange Fox color.

    Went back and ordered the box with the author on it. I may soon have the entire MB "Little Prince" collection!

    I’ve been going after a number of the Organics Studio crazy sheeting inks...Hemingway - Santiago's Blue Sea, Thoreau - Walden Pond, Nitrogen - Royal Blue and the Emerson - Hunter Green. Since they ship in plastic bottles I took advantage of Vanness’ free etching of any purchased empty bottles. So the Oas inks now sit in an Iroshizuku bottle, two from PenBBS and one other...I forget which at the moment. For a couple of bucks each this, to me, is very cool.

    I've really only properly tried one KWZ ink (Chicago Blue - a gift from one of the very,very few friends I have in the pen world). Anyway, just found out that Rene Versteegh of Pen Classics, right here in lil old New Zealand, carries this brand now. And so...

    Mr Postie brought me a parcel today, with the drawing inks I ordered direct from Diamine. They have a pack of four drawing inks on special offer (Ultramarine, Sepia, Black, and English Red), and I added one each of Emerald and Gold too. Now I've just got to wait for my dip pen to arrive from the Far East before I can use them

    As this came to over £10, I not only got free postage, but a 5ml sample of fountain pen ink an a colour of my choosing. I decided to get Oxblood, as I've been meaning to try that for a while.

    Default Re: What Are Your Recent Ink Acquisitions?

    My most recent additions are both the result of me trying to save a buck.

    First, in my search for a less-expensive alternative to GvFC Garnet Red, I rolled the dice on Edelstein Ruby. Unfortunately, I came up "snake eyes."



    It's not a bad ink by any stretch of the imagination, but it's nothing like Garnet Red, so it fails on that count. Ruby is much lighter, much less saturated than Garnet. Though in characteristic Edelstein fashion, it does shade well (which is to say, subtly) and it behaves well. Unfortunately, because it's so pale in color, I can't really use it as a "mark-up" ink, which is where red inks go to die. So I suppose it'll end up being a replacement for Garnet Red after all. At least until I use it up.


    Next up is an ink for which I had very low expectations - Montblanc Royal Blue. Honestly, I pretty much bought this only so I could use the bottle as an inkwell, but I'd be damned if I was going to pay good money for an empty bottle!

    Royal Blue seems to be everyone's least favorite MB ink, but it's also the least offensive. I figured I could always find a use for it at the office.



    To my surprise, at least in my limited use thus far, I haven't found it to be as bad as I'd read. Yes, it's mundane, but I don't think it looks as much like ballpoint ink as others have said. It's actually closer to Pelikan 4001 Konigsblau, though with a tad bit more purple. And as an extra bonus, it feels like it may be lubricated. A big plus given that it'll likely be used exclusively in a piston-filling pen.
