I thought it would be nice to start the week with a review of a bright, sunshiny color:
I like Private Reserve inks as a whole. They have some really nice, saturated colors and are quite similar to Diamine in terms of overall good behavior. This one, though, I am just not excited about at all. It was a bit dry (though that could have been my pen - the stub for my Lamy Safari is overall dry), it’s a light color that I would never have a use for, and it just wasn’t spectacular enough to wow me. On the plus side, it did have a touch of water resistance, which I did not expect for such a light colored ink.
Overall, I think that there are a lot of variations of this yellow/gold/orange colored ink, and I think that there are better ones out there. There’s Yu-Yake, Apache Sunset, etc. Check out this tool to see other colors in the same range and I think you can probably find a better orange. Like I said before, I like PR, but this color is just not one I would ever use again.
This ink was purchased with my own money and I am not being compensated in any way for this review. All opinions above are my own and you are free to disagree with them if you like.
