I really was never a brown ink kind of person. It is not until recently that I've come into the fold so to speak, but even so, I really dislike brown inks that lean red, green, or yellow. I want an ink that is a dark brown that maybe leans a bit black or gray. Thus, it was love at first sight for JH Cacao Du Bresil. It's gray yet brown or rather brown yet gray!
- I'd describe this color as a medium-darkish brown ink that heavily leans gray. It really needs a wet writer to strut its stuff. In a dry writer it will simple look light gray.
- There is not bleeding or feathering.
- The shading is phenomenal.
- It dries relatively quickly.
- Waterproof? No, but the resistance is very good indeed.
