While I do my best, especially recently, to only buy inks I’ve already tried, sometimes that isn’t possible. Because of this, I have some inks that are incredibly similar in color.
I’ve decided to have “ink battles” to figure out which to keep. I’m going to put the similar inks into pens with the same nib, then test them out to see which I like better. Or, I may find out that, when used with the same nib, they’re sufficiently different to keep them both.
This first ink battle is between Colorverse Space Needle and Lamy Bronze. Both inks are in a TWSBI Mini with a fine nib. The paper is a Rhodia Goalbook with white paper.
As you can see, when written with separately, it’s easy to tell them apart. But, when used together, like in the title, it’s much more difficult.
Jim and I both prefer Lamy Bronze if we had to choose, but I don’t know if they’re similar enough to get rid of one.
What do you think? Should I keep both? Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
