Cross Black Ink

Cross Black is a classic ink that has been around for a while. I'm not crazy about black inks in general and I find this one a little dry, but there you go. It's relatively easy to find and it's not a complicated ink to work with.

Franklin-Christoph Penvelope Six Leather Pen Case

Canoodling with the Franklin-Christoph Penvelope Six Leather Pen Case in Boot Brown Leather! Well, the pens are canoodling with the case. I'm just exposing their activities. What? A superb case that easily houses six pens but if you cray you can stuff in something like 13. Best with full size/clipped pens for easier handling but I've been known to stuff all sorts of things in it. Wow. Never write these things when you're having a questionable day. ⁣

Thank you to Franklin-Christoph for sending this over for me to check out and share with you. This has been highly requested for, come to think of it, YEARS.

Caran d'Ache Turquoise Green Ink

This ink came before Caran d'Ache's Earth series and you may recognize the bottle from J. Herbin's modern line up. I don't know who made the ink but perhaps we can assume Caran d'Ache had J. Herbin making them? The Turquoise Green is an exquisite shader - just the kind of color I love. Another disappointment that it's discontinued. My favorite and closest match so far is Toucan Aqua, which I have run out of as well. Le sigh.

Conway Stewart St. Blazey Ink

Back when Conway Stewart was still around - they have since been bought by British Bespoke - they had commissioned Diamine to produce some ink for them. This one felt like a let down to me. It's just not the right kind of red. Too ruby and washed out - not saturated red.

Caran d'Ache Sunset Ink

This Caran d'Ache ink was part of the Earth series that was discontinued several years ago. The bottles were a pain to fill pens from, but the labels and inks were beautiful. The elegance of the heavy glass inkwells was way cool. I wish they would stop discontinuing amazing things. This is a pretty color. The color is vibrant but not overly saturated, and it is eye-catching.
