INK SWAB: 128/365 – Diamine Bilberry



Lots of people talk about Diamine Bilberry. I don’t know why I’ve not had it in a pen yet (so many inks, so little time!). I plan to rectify that situation as soon as possible. Stay tuned!

Is this purple? Is it blue? Does it matter? Here’s a link in case you’re curious about what a bilberry is. Have you ever tasted one?

INK SWAB: 103/365 – Noodler’s Black Swan in Australian Roses (BSIAR)



Oh, Black Swan in Australian Roses. Beloved by so many. Changed at least twice since it’s inception and at least once since this swab.

People dislike change and that includes changes to their favorite fountain pen inks.

I reviewed it here and then I compared it with Pilot Iroshizuku here.
