    Edison and Danitrio pens are my 'core' writing pens... nibs range from true Japanese EF & F style, to JoWo EF. Kept a log to determine how much ink I use, and it averaged 50ml every 5 weeks during intensive writing times. My log was helpful in convincing my beloved that fountain pen ink should come out of the household budget, much like printer toner does.

    I know a couple of folks who 'blow through' 50ml in 2 weeks... writing exclusively broad nibs!

    It's been a while, but I have a 30 ml bottle of Blackstone Daintree Green that's close.

    There was a bottle of Krishna Peacock recently now that I think about it.

    Thanks for reviving this. About a month ago, a 50-ml bottle of Pelikan Level ink in royal blue bit the dust.

    It was THE DIAMINE " CARAMEL SPARKLE SHIMMER " it spilled empty around all of my other ink bottle drawer. HAHHHHHH It was a full bottles hardly unused and not a single drop remained.. I was scratching the head for months when I saw all the stained other ink boxes.

    Sadly, I just finished my bottle of Rohrer & Klinger Smaragdgrun. It was a wonderful emerald green that worked really well with all pens I put it. I have several other greens in that same hue that I am using now, but I will definitely purchase another bottle.

    Visconti Royal Blue - It's a great bright blue ink (IMO)

    I emptied a bottle of Aurora black. The Aurora bottle hinders drawing the last several fills, so I decanted the remainder into a Waterman ink bottle.

    Woohoo! A bottle of Doctor Writing Ink 304, scented, is now a dead soldier. It took about 15 years because the ink was scented. This ink wouldn't have crossed the threshold if I'd caught that in advance. For me, it was a nice dark black ink that worked on most papers if memory serves, but it had a weird smell.
