Well, you can’t expect a post every day!
I didn’t get around to Sunday’s ink, Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine, until quite late and then had a bit of a near miss as I tried to fill a pen that already had Cornflower blue ink in it. I don’t think I adulterated the sample as it’s still a nice deep green, but if you are familiar with the ink and it looks wrong, please let me know.

I have to admit that I cheated! Today’s ink should have been the Diamine Shimmer Mystique, but since I only just reviewed that and FB seems to have chosen that particular image for the blog post link, I decided that would be a bit dull and blind swapped it with another day. Thus, today’s ink was actually Pelikan Edelstein Ruby, along with a Rose Cream chocolate.

Tbis year I decided that, since I have so many ink samples, a good way to utilise them might be the have a “sample-a-day” Advent Calendar and use that ink for the whole day. Obviously, it would make a certain amount of sense to review the inks whilst I was at it. Continue reading “Inkvent Calendar”

I was truly excited to receive a sample set of Nick Stewart’s CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK) inks, thanks to the United Inkdom group.

Thus, if you only have room for 4 inks, these will enable you to create any other colour you need.

Today’s post for United Inkdom is a review of the Nettuno 1911 Tritone, on loan from iZods for review purposes. As someone who prefers slim, elegant lines over pretty resins, I really didn’t think I was going to like this pen, with its flat ends and fairly wide body. The Tritone is a very pretty resin though – pearly highlights gleam out from within the blue grey – you want to pick it up just to look at it and touch it. It has a nice weight in the hand too. I must admit that I found its looks very appealing.

Welcome to my second review for United Inkdom. This time I will be looking at the other item I received in the post that brought me the Inventery Pocket Pen, the rather lovely A5 Notebook Cover from Elrohir Leather.

Welcome to my first review for the United Inkdom group.
I’m very excited to be part of this review group, not least because the postman brought some really special items for me today. I thought I’d start with this jaw-droppingly amazing little Pocket Fountain Pen from Inventery. The box is surprisingly compact, considering it contains all this: Continue reading “A Modular Delight”
