A year and a half ago I wrote about my then collection of 637 Bottles and 33.47 Litres of Ink and now, after cracking 1,000 thanks to my recent purchase of all 100 Sailor Ink Studio inks (from Pen Classics) I thought was a good time to give an update to the collection.Read More
On July 31st last 2017 I reviewed the Nakaya Piccolo Writer Kuro-tamenuri. Twenty-eight days before that review was published I had ordered my own Nakaya. Ten months later it finally arrived; the Nakaya Decapod Writer Aka-tamenuri with a broad bi-colour nib. It's been a long wait but I think it was worth it and having this one has made we consider another Nakaya purchase down the road. I bought the pen from La Couronne du Comte.
I'm going to be doing more pen reviews moving forward as well so if there are any requests from for a review from all my pens please let me know!Read More
It took a while but I finally cleaned the space around my ink shelf and and arranged the bottles somewhat to take a photo of the entire collection. The title is a bit untrue because as of these photos, 619 bottles of ink were on the shelf (well, one I forgot was on my desk) but I have 18 bottles of ink that are on the way as well making for a total of 637 bottles (593 if you discount the 44 duplicated). That's around 33.47 litres (8.84 gallons) of ink. I have an additional 99 samples and swatches of 165 inks that I have neither bottles nor samples of. In total I have 858 swatches of unique inks.Read More
