De Atramentis Dornfelder Ink review

Friday, November 27, 2009

I saw a website of a German ink manufacturer De Atramentis. They have a large assortiment of all kinds of ink. They have scented inks, inks based on whiskey and inks based on wine. That last was some kind of decadent idea for me. But I could not let it go and had to do a review on this inks. Hmmm drinking a real German Dornfelder red wine writing a review.

Noodler's Forest Green

Monday, November 23, 2009

This bottle of Noodler's Forest Green I bought at World Lux. I like green color's. Most Noodler's perform well in Moleskine's, that's the reason why I like Noodler's ink so much.

The color Forest Green is a really vivid bright dark green color. It does indeed remind of a forest jungle green. If you like green, it is a color you could use for everyday use.

J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir ink review

Monday, November 16, 2009

J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir is a nice ink from a French manufacturer. J. Herbin is represented and distributed in the United States by Exaclair, Inc. located in New York City. I put this ink in my Visconti Van Gogh Maxi (fine) that I bought in Florence Italy. I had a great weekend with my wife their. This ink costs about $ 0,30/ml.

It is a very nice blue color. A bright medium blue that jumps of the page in a distinctive way. It reminds on a great summer day with the blue in the sky. When dry the ink has no shading it is just plain blue a little bit darker, saturated and more vivid then Aurora Blue.

Reading my previous posts on Iroshizuku inks you can't have misunderstood that I am impressed by the Iroshizuku line-up of fountainpen inks. This review is about the kon-peki and was bought at Jetpens.
