    Red face Brighten Up Your Winter PIF

    Winter PIF

    In purple and green, because this time of year is a bit gray.

    One bottle of Rötring Ultramarine, about half-used. One bottle of Chesterfield (Now Unobtainium!) Cobalt. These blue inks read purple to me. What is is you kids today call this...blurple?

    One Wing Sung fountain pen with clear Pilot-type feed. They look vaguely Pilot Prerarian, and shut with a nice satisfying click. Writes a fine line.

    One little memo pad. Probably fountain pen capable.

    I would prefer these went to Absolute Beginners. Ten replies or a week, whichever comes first, , then I will employ the highly scientific Eeny Meeny Miny Method to choose a recipient.

    To CONUS only. Thanks.

    That little Rotring bottle is so sweet. I've never seen one before. I agree they are called blurple.

    At least you didn't include any Bay State Blue this time.

    Great PIF. If only I were a beginner...
    I use a fountain pen and a paper planner - paperinkplan.wordpress.com

    Recently I was listing all of my inks on a spreadsheet and when I got to BSB I was in 2 minds whether to put it on or not....

    My house is now a BSB-Free Zone.

    Having made an error in the initial post, that being the pen is possibly a Jinhao rather than a WS...and having found a taker, I will now close this thread.

    Thanks for the smiles!
