This swatch best represents its colour and sheen - the Rhodia scan has come up a little contrasty  :huh:

Nice! :-)

Did you get the copper sheen? I get it from my original production trial bottle from autumn last year but no-one else seems to get it from the current production inks...

I love your ramblings and I tend to agree it gives nice, silky feel to writing. It's one of two black inks I'm planning to keep - the other is Octopus's Schwarz.

Thank you.

Lots of sheen.

 

(Get you, with your original production bottle. I only found out about this a month or so ago  :blush:  :blush: - I'm so not connected )

I'm all out of Octopus Schwarz. I managed to use it all up. So, so lovely. That was another ink introduced to be by one of your reviews if I remember correctly . . . :rolleyes:

I really like the label.  :wub:  However, I'm not so keen on 'black' inks that pretend to be different colours. So this one isn't for me. Sheen for me is either there or it isn't. If it isn't I'm not that bothered.  :)

Wow, how do you use them so fast with EF nibs ;) I do understand that bottle won't last long is extremelly wet nib - in Lamy 2000 OB nib I use easily 2 ml a day. I could go through a bottle of ink within a week - two. But, as it happens, I have too much samples to try. It's fun to try new things all the time, but it would be nice to finally nurn through some old favs :)

Once an ink makes it into my Namiki Falcon, any Ahab / Nib Creeper or my "Parase" (which is a vintage Faber Castell I think) then it gets guzzled.  :unsure:

 

I also had a phase of sketching everything with Octopus Schwarz and then I used what was left to make a few mixes.

This is really nice and I'd considered getting a bottle. I thought there was another way to order (rakuten?). At $25 I would have considered ordering a few of these inks and some seem quite nice. But at a higher price I'm not so sure.

 

Good writings and ramblings as always!

white_lotus, my first bottle was via Rakuten who rather naughtily didn't confirm shipping costs (three times the price of the ink) before debiting my credit card and sending a "Your item has been shipped" email.   :crybaby:  :gaah:

 

Never again. :closedeyes:

Rakuten is $15/bottle plus I believe $19 shipping...have not placed an order so not sure what the final total might be..or how many bottles can be ordered with the $19 shipping, before hitting the next shipping cost level..

Nice ramble :P I don't really buy blacks, so I passed over this one. However, I did buy SK Navy Blue because of you :P Haven't inked up pen with it yet, though!

That's correct.  I got 5 bottles at the same shipping rate.  I think the 6th moves things to the higher bracket.   I am so sorry Tas got a bad experience...  :(
