New Ink

I got two bottles of ink last week. Thank you Crazy Alan’s Emporium in Chapel Hill NC. I’m not real familar with Private Reserve ink. This color looked pretty close to Noodler’s Black Swan with English Roses, which I really like. And I am not usually a red fan. The Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-Ro looked very interesting. Especially since I just got a bottle of Ku-Jaku back in August.

I sampled them by dipping the nib of a clean pen in to get an idea of how they will act and look. So far I like both inks. I’ve included my sample. I was using my Hero 359A with an extra fine nib. I dipped the pen a couple of times before writing. I was amazed at how much I wrote using Syo-Ro vs Black Cherry.

I have two new pens on order and they should be here soon. One will be for the Black Cherry and the other will get Syo-Ro. One most likely the Syo-Ro will be a work pen. Or maybe I’ll continue to travel back and forth with them. A nice soft eyeglasses case make a perfect travel case for 4 fountain pens. Thank you Dollar Tree.

Cheers, james
