Slightly Wild Sixpack of Levenger Ink
These are fun colors!
I bought a set of this ink 6 years ago -- and promptly lost my fountain pens. I didn't bother to buy another pen until a couple of weeks ago, and these inks are still fantastic! I can tell from the description that the colors and style have not changed at all -- which says to me that people must really like the product. I find these inks to be of good quality and in fun colors. I did suddenly realize that I don't have any "normal" colors -- and promptly ordered the classic 6 pack. I haven't received it yet, but when I do I will review it (with attention to whether the details of the product have changed at all in the last couple of years). The only color in this set which is acceptable for "business" use is the "Skies of Blue" (and perhaps in a pinch the "Smokey"). As long as you know that, these are attractive colors that allow you to express yourself!
I will say that changing colors is a little more complicated than the instructions would have you believe -- the pigment is very strong, and it takes multiple fills and emptys of water to get the residual ink out of the nib and the reservoir. I'd personally recommend different pens for different colors (or at least different color families). Also, I'd recommend wearing disposable (health-care type) gloves when filling -- I have ordered the ink remover, but it seems easier to just prevent the ink getting all over your hands in the first place.

COLOR 'N COLOR
I LOVE the colors that I use with various colored pens for a grand variety of color in my prolific journal writing.

It's certainly the best ink I've ever tried (and I have tried many).
