Hi everybody,

Firstly I would like to apologize as this would not be a thorough review. Just sharing my experience with an ink I just bought earlier.

I got this ink from a local store for RM1.50 (~$0.40). My first impression of this ink is that this is more towards a grey ink than a blue black. However, the flow and wetness of the ink is quite good especially at this price. The ink is also surprisingly water resistant! I've read some reviews that it might be an IG ink, can anyone confirm this?

These are written on rhodia lined pad with sheaffer agio M. Here are some pictures:image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

The ink shades more on printed words than cursive

Water resistant ink! :D

That's it for now. Thank you for reading. :)
Cheers

I like this ink which, before mixing with a wetting agent, I found it on the dry side. But now is perfect. Although don't use it with a gold plated nib. My Pilot 78G did not like it, but in my Lamy Safari is a dream.

I see. Is there any reason why I should not use it with gold plated nib? My sheaffer agio is gold plated *scared*

When I cleaned my Pilot I discovered that on the inside the plating was gone, although I'm not so sure of the gold plating quality of the 78G

It is probably an iron-gall ink. Put some drops of 10% bleach on it. Those areas should fade to beige.

 

Iron gall inks are generally quite dry, dry to a grey or black colour and are very water resistant due to the fact that the ink has turned into black iron III oxide particles embedded in the paper fibres. However bleach turns those particles a beige colour.

I'm more curious about the extremely prime number, 59, stating the amount of ink.  Why can't it just be 60???
