Diamine Ancient Copper Fountain Pen Ink Review

Diamine Ancient Copper – Ink Review

Diamine Ancient Copper
Ink Review

PenHero 9015 Fude Nib
Ink: Diamine Ancient Copper
Paper: Kyokuto F.O.B. COOP B5 Dot Grid

Pros:

  • Great Shading
  • Awesome Color
  • Writes Smooth

Cons:

  • None!

Notes:
First off, this is my second review with the Hero 9018 and it’s awesome for doing ink reviews. The variation in line width that’s obtainable with one pen/nib is great for showing off how an ink looks in different configurations. Onto the ink…all signs should say that I shouldn’t like this ink (because it’s orange) but I totally do. The great shading and burnt color bring the ink well outside of the typical range of oranges. This ink would look super great in the Kaweco ART Sport in Amber acrylic, and that’s probably where it will end up next. Practicality is questionable, but it’s a great ink that would nicely compliment a brown pen. One thing worth noting is that this ink likes to gunk up feeds and nibs when left unattended for a while. I only experienced this a little bit, but keep an eye on anything you have it in. It doesn’t appear to damage anything, but may be a bit hard to clean out. Also, huge thanks again to Azizah over at Gourmet Pens for sending over the sample!

Thanks for reading and enjoy the review!

Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki Fountain Pen Ink Review

Pilot Iroshizuku: Fuyu-gaki Ink Review

**Welcome to the new layout of edjelley.com – please let me know what you think!*

Pilot Iroshizuku: Fuyu-gaki

PenRotring 600 Lava
Ink: Pilot Iroshizuku fuyu-gaki
Paper: Kytokuto F.O.B. COOP B5 Dot Grid

Notes:
Another day, another Iroshizuku is loaded up for review (I wish there was really one per day…). The time it’s Fuyu-Gaki, which translates to Winter Persimmon. This ink should not be confused with Yu-Yake (the other Iroshizuku orange) because of their similar name and similar color. Orange is one of my least favorite colors, not just for ink, but for life. I actually don’t mind this one though. There are elements of red and almost pink that blend with the yellow to make this ink stand out from the rest. It’s elevated above a standard orange. The ink itself is quite transparent, so expect to see the ruling on the page through your writing. It’s definitely not an every day use color, but it is fun for doodling or drawing. It may even fit in as an underlining ink. The Iroshizuku line has great performance across the board, and Fuyu-Gaki is no exception. While I don’t think I’ll  be adding a bottle to the collection, I’m definitely enjoying the sample.

Also, thanks AGAIN to Azizah over at Gourmet Pens for sending me a sample!

Thanks for reading, enjoy!

Pros:

  • Bright!
  • Good Performance
  • Easy Clean Out

Cons:

  • Tough color to use every day

Noodler’s Ellis Island Blue Black – Handwritten Ink Review

Noodler's Ellis Island Blue Black Fountain Pen Ink Review 3Noodler’s Ink – Ellis Island
Blue Black

Handwritten Review

Pen: Lamy Al-Star – Graphite – EF nib
Ink: Noodler’s Ellis Island Blue Black
PaperRhodia dotPad, No. 16 - Top Spiral Bound

Notes: I should probably stop using EF nibs for ink reviews, but this ink was just so smooth in the Lamy EF that I decided to continue anyway. Noodler’s Ellis Island Blue Black is a Fountain Pen Hospital exclusive ink, so if you like what you see, you know where to go. The color is very interesting for a Blue Black, because this one has a hint of teal. It reminds me a bit of Rohrer & Klingner’s Verdigris, but this ink is a bit darker. The ink also has an interesting smell to it, almost like licorice. Ellis Island Blue Black is nothing crazy, but it’s a good smooth ink. I’ll definitely use up the rest of the sample I have, but it’s just not unique enough to purchase a bottle.

Pros:

  • Very smooth in EF nib
  • Unique color

Cons:

  • Nib Creep

Noodler’s Ink – Apache Sunset

Handwritten Review

PenNoodler’s Ahab Flex, Fine Nib, Medieval Lapis
Ink: Noodler’s Apache Sunset
PaperRhodia dotPad, No. 16 - Top Spiral Bound

Notes: I’ve been wanting to try this ink for quite a while. I don’t know why I waited so long because it’s amazing. There are a few things about the ink that are less than ideal, but they are easily overshadowed by how this ink looks on the page. Orange is actually one of my least favorite colors (not just ink, but everything) but the intense shading from orange to yellow drew me in. The ink performs well, although it’s a bit slow drying. I went a little picture heavy here, because this ink deserves it. Apache Sunset can be a bit difficult to read at times because of the shading. Sometimes the yellow is a bit tough to pick out. But, this isn’t really an everyday writing ink, and it’s right at home in a flex pen. Overall, I liked the ink, and I would definitely consider picking up a bottle. Enjoy the review, the pictures speak more than my words with this one.

Thanks!

Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki

Pilot Irozshizuku: Kon-Peki – Handwritten Ink Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pen: Pelikan Souveran M605, Fine Nib
Ink: Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki
Paper: Rhodia dotPad

Notes: I received this ink for Christmas (I asked for it) and I couldn’t have been happier opening it up. I have tried out a few Iroshizuku inks before and liked their overall performance, the colors, and their presentation. The ink comes in a very minimalistic box that’s silver with a block of color that matches the ink. Open the box though and this is where the real fun stuff starts. The bottle is absolutely beautiful. It is slim in width, but has a taller and wider profile than most of my ink bottles. It has a great textured paper label with very minimal print on it. There’s a silver cord tied around the neck of the bottle which just adds some class to the overall appearance. A nice bottle is great to look at, but it’s even better when the ink inside is just as nice.

Kon-Peki is a vibrant blue with lots of shading qualities. It dries nice and fast. So far I’ve had it in my new Lamy 2000 and the Pelikan, and it was great in both. The color pops without being obnoxious and I’m glad I have an entire bottle. The Iroshizuku line doesn’t come cheap at around $28.00 US per bottle, but I think it’s worth it. I also received a bottle of Fuyu-Syogun as a gift from my girlfriend. I didn’t even have to ask her for it, she just happened to pick it out. I’ve gone through three samples of the Fuyu-Syogun and had been debating a bottle for a long time. Check back soon for a review of that!

Enjoy!

The flow and shading of this ink are great. At first, I thought it was a bit watery. After writing some more and noticing the quick dry time with the wonderful shading, all negative thoughts went away.

Close up of the shading test. This stuff would really shine in a broader nib. I can't wait to get some in my 3.8mm Pilot Parallel.
