    Default Re: Ink Review: Diamine Ancient Copper

    I like the color, but I've gotten horrible crud creep with this in the one pen I've tried it in so far, a vintage Parker Duofold. Normally, this pen works fine with other inks, but with Ancient Copper, brownish-blackish sludgelike stuff accumulates at the base of the nib, especially from between the nib and the feed where they meet the section, and also along the slit. When I cleaned it off, it was back after a few days. I'm going to limit my use of this ink to modern converter pens for short periods of time, making sure to flush whatever pen I use as soon as I'm done.

    Here's a photo. Sorry I don't have a decent closeup lens.
