I thought I would update on my Red Cashmere test! I mixed the powder with 25ml of water back in December and before going home for the holidays (around the 20th) I filled the ink in a Pilot Custom 74. It's one of my only c/cs so I love using it when I'm still trying to figure out how an ink behaves before putting it in one of my go-to piston and/or vintage pens.

 

I used the pen lightly until about the second week of January and decided to leave it inked for another couple weeks to see if/how it would evolve. Fast forward to today. The ink has been unused in the pen for about a month and it started immediately without any priming when I tried to write with it. There wasn't any ink dried in the feed or on the nib. Cleaning was very easy using a bulb syringe and the converter had 0 staining after rinsing. Overall I would say this is one very well behaved ink! :wub:

I am so glad you have enjoyed it!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

OK, I know, right?  Where have I been?  Just got ahold of some Tomoe River paper, and the sheen from Red Cashmere is phenomenal!  You almost can't tell what color it is for the shiney surface!
