I loved the color of Israel zeeblauw, in fact I still had a tiny bit that I'm writing with now, I just like a wetter more lubricated ink since I only use a lamy fine nib as my daily.

    Thank you again for putting on this event and I'm very much looking forward to what is brought to the table next time

    I have an untame-able gusher of a pen, and the Akkerman just might be its solution.
    It might be I have a feeling if my lamy had a crazy flow it probably would have been great. My only other pens I have is a cheap noodler eyedropper that can be a real pain (it likes to let out blobs at random times) and a Monteverde Mountain (F) that was gifted to me by a wonderful member of FPG and its my baystate blue pen (which I use a almost half and half mix of baystate blue and water to keep it writing halfway decent but it still has hard starts a lot). My Aurora was my absolute best but sadly the threads separated from the pen and can't be reattached, so my lamy al star (F) has become my daily carry and daily use pen. One day I hope to have the extra funds to get a few new cheap-mid range pens and some more inks but medical bills take precedence.

    Thanks

    I didn't find it dry with any of my M nibs. Diamine Eau de Nil is a very popular ink. Here is Mountain of Ink's review of it.
