This week's Pen Addict podcast had a segment about buying with intention. I thought it might be worth while to put together a list of inks that I think are "Best In Class". In some cases I would likely only buy one of the two since the colour is so close (Turquoise, and possibly Blue and Black as well) but for the most part I would purchase all of the ones listed. If you were ever curious, these are my favourites.
In all cases the text was written with a dipped, broad, Lamy steel nib on Tomoe River paper.
