I've gone through the five stages of grief with this ink (Sailor Bungbox Kabayaki of the Hamaneko Eel) which cannot be had for love or money unless their ink-sensei decides to make more.
The sixth stage, of course, is making a substitute.

2/3 Iroshizuku Yama-Guri, 1/4 Diamine Oxblood and a bit of Diamine Ancient Copper for the bit of yellow. It's simpler, but close enough for rock 'n' roll.

Oh, yes, please, pictures.


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

I'll put something together - a before/after page. 

 

I figure there's only fifteen people who like this ink in the first place...it's so variable.

This is a decent sample for your delectation and also a sort of handwritten review.

Does adding Ancient Copper cause any nib crud in the mixture, when in use?

The ink seems to flow pretty freely in the pens I've filled with it. The other inks are all on the wet side, so it seems to balance out.

I've now added a bit of Noodler's Forest Green to the mix and a bit more Ancient Copper - the spread on Kleenex is red-to-green.

The current formulation is smooth and wet, and so far I haven't noticed a particulate issue:
21 ml Diamine Ancient Copper
4 ml Noodler's Forest Green
3 ml J. Herbin Vert Olive

It's close.

Oh! Looks a lot like MontBlanc Toffee Brown. You are getting close.

It shades well, which is something I really like about that ink. I may put a ml of Yama-Guri in it to make it a hair darker, but it may be close enough for rock 'n' roll.
