    I find the black/grey/green colour odd as these fellas are definitely brown to my eyes!


    This is the correct answer. I have never been a fan of black inks, but when I ran across a writing sample of the Kingdom Note Dorcus Hopei Binodulosus ink I was intrigued by the potential for a green sheen. I love green, I love sheen, and I hoped it would make a black ink enjoyable. Unfortunately, at least out of the current pen/nib, I don't see any of the green sheen. I am terribly disappointed, especially for the difficulty in finding and procuring this ink and the expense to my wallet.

    Strange.... I thought this is exactly the goal of our game here.....
    A lot of my pens are in storage due to a house move... If I am right I will probably need to ink up a pen with something other than Pilot Blue/Black
    Well, we could have a small deviation from the norm and try and guess the pen, I suppose...
    I am OK with this. He has some lovely pens and I have been fortunate enough to get to write with quite a few of them.

    Ok, I had something in a pen so here we go.
    Lots of clues in the pictures if you can read my terrible scrawl.
    All pictures adjusted and reduced but look ok on my phone screen.
    Pen is a Sailor fine nib, paper is a Rhodia No.16 pad.

    I think I know what ink this is courtesy of your facebook / instagram feed. I'll sit this one out unless everyone else struggles.

    Take Sumi is a grey ink as the translation of the name suggests (bamboo charcoal), this is hopefully not grey on your screens?!?!?

    No sorry, it says it right in the text, not a Japanese boutique ink... In fact I'll say it right now, not a Japanese ink.

    FYI, both are OK. "Iro" means "colour", so for example, you could say "ao" = "blue" or you could also say "aoiro / ao-iro" = also "blue".
    Anytime you see an ink with "iro" on the end, it just means "colour" so you could say "Pilot Iroshizuku Asa-gao-iro" or "Sailor Yama Guri iro" and still not be wrong
