Articles I’ve read
Lamy Benitoite ink, Lamy Peridote Ink, and Rohrer & Klingner Aubergine LE ink (Wondernaut) ✑ The new Lamy inks seem to be solid inks albeit for me a little generic at times (and I share the opinion here that the names are very uninspiring). The R&K I have an really like it.
Ink Review: Sailor Studio 150, Ink Review: Sailor Studio 162, and Ink Review: Sailor Studio 273 (The Well-Appointed Desk) ✑ Jessica is reviewing some of the Sailor Ink Studio 100 there’s still many more to go! My overview doesn’t go into individual performances only the visuals so we need more of these reviews (I have 935 covered)
Review: ASC Bologna Extra Arco Fountain Pen (The Pencilcase Blog) ✑ A great review of a gorgeous pen. Arco Celluloid is one of my favourite pen finishes. So pretty. I had the inspiration for this ASC pen and loved it.
Krishna Lyrebird Blue Black (Inkdependence) ✑ Not the most unique colour here but I really like it. Definitely has some “black” out of blue-black rather than just a dark blue.
Ink Review: Taccia Murasaki, Ebi & Sora (Hand Over That Pen) ✑ Some great inks in this lineup and a useful overview of three of them from Franz.
Pen Classics ✒︎ Sailor Ink Studio 100 inks are available! These are 100 unique inks based on the ink mixing studio Sailor put on in Japan. Lots of great colours to choose from.

Desk Bandit ✒︎ The only place I know that stocks Carpink! Full range of the beautiful Nagasawa Kobe inks as well as Nagasawa’s Sailor Pro Gears! Full Range of Colorverse. So many great things! They recently got ahold of Ginza Gold Sepia and DEN Premium Blue!
