This Week’s Ink – December 22, 2012

Time to get back to a this week’s ink post, but with a slight variation. Rather than inking up six or seven pens for the week ahead I’ll just recap the pens that are currently inked.

The currently inked pens are:

The Diamin Oxblood ink is new to me and I really like it. I tried it in another pen long enough to know I liked so ordered a bottle. But that pen leaked, so when the E-motion arrived it seemed like a good choice. I’ve run through most of a convertor already.

I’m still trying out brown inks. The Diamine Golden Brown didn’t make the cut but I really like the Diamine Ochre. I bought a bottle after trying the sample and I expect this ink to be in one or another pen on a nearly permanent basis.

The Private Reserve Ebony Brown is a nice dark brown. But I’m not sure I like it enough to make it a regular or buy a bottle. But I will be finishing up this pen and try the remaining sample in another one or two pens.
