This ink is a really neat brown. It flows consistently well, has no problems with cleanup, and is decent on lubrication. It's a really good all-rounder ink if you don't mind it not being permanent. Or, for that matter, water resistant at all.
On a ten-point system, 10 being the best:
Dry Time on Tomoe River Paper : 20-25 sec
Shading: 7 (Depends largely on the pen)
Ghosting: Just a bit, nothing too heavy.
Color: 7 - I like it a lot, especially in my Monteverde Invincia with a Pendleton BLS Nib. Its a very nice brown with good shading in this pen.
Overall: 7 - This is a brown ink I could see myself returning to!
After capturing, I noticed there were bits of these really neat silvery black sheen where the ink pooled up enough. It probably won't be seen unless your pen is REALLY flowing on very ink-resistant paper, but it is there! I'll leave two pictures. One of the sheen circled and one not circled.
The pictures do not do it much justice as in real life it sheens much more especially under light. I had real trouble picking up any sheen on my camera.
Thanks for checking out my review!
