Great for art

When writing with a medium nib, I find this to be a fairly boring (but pretty) lavender shade, with a slight edge of green if I manage to pool a lot of ink. When spreading it on watercolor paper, it really shines, breaking apart into blue, purple, pink, and a nice mint green. Overall, I really like it, but I'd probably put it in a stub or a broad if I wanted to actually write with it.

Sailor 123 ink sample

Usually don't get excited about two toned inks, but I like this one. I've put it into a medium nib Preppy hoping to see more of it. It pretty much looks like gray. I also color with my inks and this one tends to not go on evenly but gets blotchy. Still, I like it.

Lovely!

Sich a beautiful ink. Just the right viscosity. This would be great for artists, as the green under sheening is breath takingly beautiful. It's hard to see in normal writing in regular paper though.

Love it

Fairly light ink while being just dark enough for everyday writing. The chromoshading is noticeable in a variety of nib sizes and paper types. Will likely buy a whole bottle

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
