First... thanks to Amber for putting all of this together. You are indeed the Chief Enabler.


Second... please forgive my humble attempt at a review. I don't have any real experience with it, but I agreed to accept these SuSeMaI samples at the cost of reviews so I figured I'd better follow through.


Third... I'll retype what I wrote below knowing that my hand isn't all that great.


ICU ink review - Blue Cashmere (Blue batch C)


Paper - Rhodia Bloc #16\

Pen - Parker 45 medium nib


OK - so this is one of the infamous SuSeMaI inks - purveyed on FPN by Amber Lea Davis.


The first thing noticed is that the ink goes down on the page darker but dries a bit lighter.


Second - it is a little dry writing with this P45.


Third - it seems to dry on the nib very quickly.


All of that said, I like the color - I tend to favor darker colors. It would be fine to use in a professional context.


How does it dry on paper - let's see:

Seems to dry fully by 10 secs.


It's a bit purplish, isn't it?

Seems to be a bit of red in here somewhere.

Yet, I don't own another ink quite like it.


To fully evaluate it, I'd want to try it in a few more pens - like my L2K, for example.


Would I buy it? I'd say - a maybe.

Great Job! Thank you!

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