Mini Review: Robert Oster Fire & Ice Ink

Continuing my series of Tessa-talks-about-the-thing-everyone-is-talking-about-but-a-few-months-afterwards, I’ve had a play around with the much-hyped Fire & Ice Ink by Robert Oster. I’ve called this a mini review, because I’m no ink expert and I can’t give you much more insight other than how it looks and a little bit about how it behaves. If you’re looking… Read more »

Diamine Orange: Mini Review

This is my second experience of a Diamine ink. You can see my review of the Beethoven dark green here. The orange is another shade that I got in my Wick & Hide ink sample package. It’s also my first ever orange fountain pen ink. I wouldn’t normally go for an orange, it’s just not… Read more »

A curious pen…

Last month’s Moustache Stationery box was on the theme of sustainability, and within it was one really interesting item: a bamboo calligraphy pen, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. Apologies, these photos aren’t up to my normal standards but this was un unplanned shoot! I was just sitting at my desk looking through… Read more »

Diamine Beethoven Ink Review

What better way to end National Stationery Week than with an ink review. The guys at Wick & Hide got in touch with me recently to tell me about their ink sampling service. You can either buy a set of samples from a certain brand, e.g. Diamine, J.Herbin or they have a monthly ink sampling… Read more »

Bureau Direct October Haul: Diamine Shimmer Inks!

Along with everyone else, I’ve been very curious to try out the Diamine Shimmer Inks, and Bureau Direct (check out their fancy new website) have made this happen! Their resident ink expert (inkpert? inxpert?) Mishka was kind enough to send me a few samples from the new range, so yesterday I had a play! And… Read more »

August Bureau Direct Haul 1: J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor

It’s been the talk of the town! The stationery town anyway… I was lucky enough to get one of Bureau Direct’s first batch of the long awaited J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor inks! There are a couple of people who have already done brilliant posts about this ink, who I couldn’t begin to compete with, so… Read more »

Bureau Direct June Haul Part 2: J. Herbin Rollerball

It didn’t occur to me that you could put normal ink into rollerball pens, but that’s the exciting thing about the J.Herbin rollerball. You can choose which colour you want to use, as you would a fountain pen, and change it whenever you like. To go with my rollerball, I got some J. Herbin ink… Read more »

J. Herbin Larmes de Cassis Ink

I’m going to start by saying that I found this ink VERY wet, hence the drying times, but I think that’s because it would be more suited to a (fined nibbed probably) fountain pen. I got this in the set of 4 mini inks I got from Bureau Direct. I have already reviewed the Diablo… Read more »

Cult Pens Mini Haul Video

After intending to carry on making videos after my first attempt, I’ve been meaning to do more, but have not been sure what would suit a video, rather than a blog post. I bought some stuff form Cult Pens a while ago and as I haven’t had a chance to review any of them yet… Read more »
