So many votes but no discussion?
I use the Shin-Kai ink for daily writing in my Pilot Custom 92. That is an absolutely gorgeous combination. I absolutely understand why it is on top of the list.
I also voted for the JFK and the 54th Massachussetts Inks, both of them are absolutely nice and they are very hard to get in Europe. So as much as I'm fine with the Iroshizuku ink, I'd prefer the more rare ones to see here.

Right there with you. Shin Kai is my daily driver right now. I'd love to get my hands on one of the rarer inks.

Hey @jsfuller13, thanks for starting this poll - it's a great idea! Most polls are for a specific brand.
Because of the relatively low price of (most) inks and the relatively high costs of shipping liquid-filled glass, it's often the case that we're only able to make ink a great value on Massdrop if we can place a very large order - which means members ordering multiple bottles in one drop.
I am curious to know if you, and other members, would be more interested in a drop for 2 or 3 different colors of Blue-Black, or if you would rather have 2-3 bottles of the same brand.
We've been able to make some new inks available recently, and I will keep an eye on this poll.

Thanks for the reply Jonas! Like MarkIV I'm more interested in a sampler in the same color scheme. Blue-blacks are particularly awesome because they look professional, allow for some nice shading, and have really varied color even in the same family. Hopefully we can get some more discussion on this, but I think that the color family idea might be better, particularly for more serious collectors/fp users.
If you can get a few manufacturers to work together (not sure of the mechanics on your end) it might be a cool drop to have a couple different options - blue-blacks, blacks, and another color or two (maybe something like red, blue, and green?) If you want some ideas for complementary color schemes/ideas on how to put a nice package together you might check out Goulet's ink drop: http://www.gouletpens.com/ink-drop
Obviously we're not looking for a monthly program, and we'd like full bottles, but some themes like this might be interesting for collections of like-colored or complementary-colored inks as a drop.

Hi, I'd love to have 2 or 3 different colors of Blue-black because I'm no sure yet which brand I like best.
