Tragically I’ve been slow to the Robert Oster Signature Ink party. I recently changed that when I picked up some Robert Oster Summer Storm (via JetPens) which is a fantastic blue grey ink that I’m already planning on getting a second bottle of. … [Read more…]
Our friends over at Goldspont sent us this sample of Mont Blanc Oyster Grey fountain pen ink (find it here at Goldspot) for review, and for some reason I’ve really enjoyed using grey inks so I was excited to get my hands on this one.

Another item sent over to us by our friends at Jetpens was this 6 pack of J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges in the lovely color of Gris Nuage (Cloud Gray). I selected this color because it really struck me as being appropriate for the seasonal change to fall and some gloomy skies above. … [Read more…]
