    Oh darn, now this is tragic ... on the hunt again for more Pelikan blue-black.

    I wasn't sure I would ever be able to post in this thread, but ....


    Next on my journey will be my bottle of Hero 232, Blue-Black.
  3. I have emptied 50 ml bottles of Levenger Cobalt Blue, Levenger Raven Black, Levenger Pomegranate, two 62.5 ml bottles of Pelikan 4001 Blue Black. I think I may have a couple of bottles getting close as well.

    I'm on bottle #3 of the 4001 Blue Black. I did like Raven Black, but don't need another black. Pomegranate was discontinued. I loved that ink. (actually have 1-2 ml left in a vial) I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the Levenger bottles.
  4. That's a lot of bottles you have finished! About how much writing on average do you do a day?
  5. Depends. Between 1998 and 2013 it was Cobalt Blue, one 4001 Blue Black and Raven Black. The others since then. I keep about 10 pens inked at any given time.

  6. Finished off a bottle of Private Reserve Black Cherry, and a 2 oz bottle of Sheaffer's #32 Jet Black. Almost finished my Noodler's BBB with the Ouchette artwork. I'm rationing my Noodler's 5 O'Clock shadow. Dreading the day I finally use it up as it has been my favorite so far.

    It took a while to find this thread! I rarely use the same color for more than one or two refills in a row, but finally managed to actually empty a bottle. This has been on of my favorites over the years. Probably will eventually be replaced. 20190318_084750.jpg

    I have a bottle of Noodler's Liberty's Elysium that has about one more full to go, but I have given away several samples, and spilled some as well! Good news is that I don't have a cat!

    I've used up 2.5 bottles of Pelikan 4001 Blue Black in 12+ years. I'll probably never finish another of anything; now have 15+ bottles (different inks)
  9. I've emptied a few bottles over the years (been using fountain pens on and off since about 1965). Latest was a bottle of Skrip blue-black, not really finished but it got junk in the bottom when it got really low, and it's replacement is about 3/4 gone.

    With all the ink I've bought (25 or 30 Noodler's, etc) I still use Skrip Blue-black the most.

    Well, you were right, John! :001_cool: About six passed ...
  13. Just killed this 30ml bottle, on the last reload. Good thing I have some ESS Registrar’s in the mail.

    I've got a bottle of Registrars ink about to bite it too.
  15. And the ESS was sitting in the mailbox today.
