Ink Review: Newest Penbbs Inks

Ink Review: Newest Penbbs Inks

  By Jessica Coles Black Friday (and the related Small Business Saturday, In-Between Sales Sunday, Cyber Monday…) has come and gone and packages ordered online last week are now being delivered.

Ink Review: Diamine Handel

Ink Review: Diamine Handel

By Jessica Coles This week I decided to take a break from my normal lines of Sailor Studio and Montblanc inks and instead show an ink that is beautiful, inexpensive, but hard to find. Diamine makes an astoundingly large variety of inks for a wide variety of clients. Some people even joke that Dimaine makes…

Guest Post Ink Review: MontBlanc Ladies Edition Pearl

Guest Review by Jaclyn Myers (AKA Inkpothesis) Typically my opinion of an ink forms long after I have opened it.

By Jessica Coles Recently I decided to try to track down all Montblanc limited edition inks. This was a bad idea. Montblanc LE inks seem to be one of the most coveted in the fountain pen world, especially those that are no longer available. Even current Montblanc inks are among the highest-priced inks available. These pieces of…

Ink Review: Sailor Studio 237

By Jessica Coles Sailor Studio has 100 inks in their lineup – plenty of space to explore various nooks and crannies of ink properties that are not usually present in commercially available inks. Because of this freedom, Sailor has created many distinct inks in the Studio line and 237 is one of them. Dromgoole’s is the…
