Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

September's Goulet Ink Drop

I don't know if anyone else does this, but I always check my birthday month in a calendar before I decide to buy a calendar. If it's one of those desk calendars with jokes or comics, then the comic for my birthday had better be funny. My month is September, and don't buy calendars anymore, so I'm looking to the Ink Drop this month. It's a pretty solid collection this month.  Even better, I've only got one of these in my collection.

Merlot and Navy are more interesting than I thought they would be. Navy is brighter than I was expecting, and I'm never really sure what to expect with wine-colored inks. 

Zhivago is the only one in this collection that I already have. I think my sample of that ink might have run out, though, so I'm happy to see it again. Sepia isn't one of my favorite flavors of ink, but this one has a couple of things going for it. 1. I've never tried any Omas inks and 2. it looks more like Kaweco's sepia than Visconti's. That's a plus for me. 

Last up, Ebony Purple is probably going to be the least interesting of the lot. I like the PR Ebony Blue that I've tried, but PR inks are so saturated that I'm going to have to put it in some kind of a stub nib to get any color variation out of it. It could happen, but I don't know that it will. 

The text here was written with my new Sailor Jentle ink. I'm really liking this Sky High ink. It's good stuff, and it makes my Esterbrook feel very smooth.
