A match made in Heaven : Diamine Apple Glory ink and Safari Apple Green pen

Last week I received a long awaited parcel from cultpens.com. Inside, a green festival : a Lamy Safari Apple Green and a bottle of Diamine Apple Glory. These two are made to be together, a match made in Heaven for anybody who loves bright green colours.

The pen is a M nib, and as most Safari, it writes wonderfully. Wet poen, no skipping, always ready to write, it glides on paper without effort, leaving behind a lusty trail of ink. The colour of this 2012 LE is a bright, happy, joyful green, and I really like it a lot, my favorite Safari color.

And what about the ink? The perfect match for the pen, Diamine Apple Glory is a vibrant light green, almost the same colour than the pen. I really love it!

Pharmacist's iron gall ink

My first review here...

Pharmacist is a member of Fountain Pen Network, the biggest (and best) fountain pen forum in the net. And he makes his own ink, a wonderful old style iron gall ink.

Two weeks ago, I received a parcel from Belgium. Inside, two bottles of Pharmacist's iron gall ink. Since then, I've been using it as my main daily ink in my Parker Frontier.

Pharmacist's ink is truly superb, a true blue-blac waterproof ink faithful to the spirit of old iron gall inks, but fountain pen friendly. It's very close to be my Grail ink, so I told myself it deserved a review. And here you have it !
