3 Inks from Caran d’Ache Colors of the Earth

Colors of the Earth

Caran d’Ache produces quite some nice colours of inks, and while I have done a couple of ink samples late last year, I haven’t gotten down to reviewing them on this site yet. The brand has had a range called the Caran d’Ache Colors of the Earth inks, which has been discontinued and replaced with their Chromatic range. I was lucky enough to have snatched up 3 of the old inks before they were all out of the market. Before…

TWSBI-Vac-700-knob

They will probably continue to contribute posts once in a while, though, via the form of guest posts, but not as…

Grey Kakuno vs White Kakuno

Kakuno-Sumino-caps

EDIT: Pilot Pen has contacted me to correct the error in my post – there is no Pilot Sumino, and the white Kakuno is still known as the Kakuno. So do note this as many sources online call it the Pilot Sumino, which is not correct! I have made the necessary changes in this post to correct the name of the pen. Thanks to Pilot Pen for pointing this out! As promised on my Fukubukuro sale post, I was going…
