I’m not one for trying multiple inks as a pursuit in and of itself, tending only to try inks to see if I like them and stopping at that colour once I am satisfied. I have tried recently to be more adventurous picking up some samples.

I easily do 90%+ of my writing at work, which is why I have not been too adventurous to date. I need appropriate colours avoiding anything too flashy or out there that would elicit odd reactions. The bulk of my writing is in Rhodia Webnotebooks or Rhodiarama notebooks which have ivory coloured, 90gsm, paper making inks appear darker. Finally, I need ink that is easy to clean and does not damage my pens (or my desk on the occasional burp/spill).

The following is a list of inks I have tried or own and the details of which pens are currently carrying particular inks.
