Yes this seems like a great matchup. Platinum Citrus Black in a Yellow TWSBI ECO-T. :)
Platinum Classic Inks are online :) Modern Iron Gall Inks made using traditional ideas but modern techniques making them safe for fountain pens. Not everyone likes Iron Gall inks. They can be dry and the colour changes over time and can seem a little watery. I (Jamie) personally love them. They work great on cheaper papers, the colour change is something I enjoy and they have a unique look on paper. I also like that the iron gall element is permanent on the page. :)
Today's Ink: Platimum Classic Ink Lanvender Black
Platinum Classic Ink是一組很有趣的墨水, 共6色, 名字全部有"Black"這字跟尾
因為是鐵膽墨水, 有著寫的時候顏色是明亮的, 但隨著墨水慢慢乾掉氧化, 顏色會變深😆的特性
有說鐵膽墨水寫感比較乾澀, 但這個我覺得還好, 流暢度沒有問題
又有說鐵膽墨水容易傷筆, 會堵筆塞筆, 然而我用的是沾水筆, 一寫完就清洗掉, 所以沒有此問題, 怕的話, 勤洗筆和別灌貴筆就好了
這個Lavender Black 完全沒有薰衣草的紫調, 就是偏紅, 由寫時的葡萄汁色🍇, 氧化蘊釀成香醇紅酒🍷😋Burgundy色

Is stark white ink a little too bright for you? McCaffery's Ivory ink has a perfect subtle, creamy hue to tone that brightness down. We've pictured this shade of ink next to McCaffery's Bright White to illustrate the difference! McCaffery's Iron Gall inks are perfect for pointed pen work due to its impeccable hairlines and smooth flow. Thanks to Ann Cobb, one of our favorite local calligraphers, for writing these samples!
