What Ink Is In Your Pen?

what ink is in my pen?

Here's what's in ours!

I’m always fascinated by the inks we all choose to use, and just a bit envious if I am honest! It seems that we also change our inks on an amazingly regular basis – when I started out with the idea to do this post last week I could swear that there were other inks in use but they had all changed by the time I got everyone to write out a short line with their ink of choice, and photographed it.

Who chose what?

diamine imperial blue
Dominic is using Diamine Imperial Blue ink
diamine ancient copper ink
Pawel is using Diamine Ancient Copper ink
j. herbin lierre sauvage
Faisal is using J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage ink
caroube de chypre ink
Emma is using J. Herbin Caroube de Chypre 1670 ink
diamine shimmer moon dust
Jo is using Diamine Shimmer Moondust ink
lamy pacific blue
Mishka is using Lamy Pacific Blue ink (amongst many)
j. herbin perle noir
Armi is using J. Herbin Perle Noir ink

  1. Depends which pen your talking about…
    Pelikan m400 has Mont Blanc ruby red
    Faber ambition uses herbin rouge d’ancre

  2. Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-Syogun in a Lamy Accent. As a left hander, I love the way the ink flows and dries. The colour comes across as a gentler, more understated alternative to black.

  3. I have over 30 fountain pens all with different colour inks. I use a different colour everyday depending on how I feel.
    Yesterday I used Lamy Safari Pink pen with Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji.
    Today I am using Lamy Blue pen with Herbin Ocean Blue ink
