Hater here.  Nah, just kidding!

 

I have a bottle of ESSRI.  It is used as my go to ink for testing vintage pens (when I am unfortunate enough to have paid good money for one that is).  I've had no problems with it. Ever. Not even as a dry writing ink.  It seems tailor-made for vintage pens <talking about early 20th century pens, mostly flexible nibs and eyedroppers.

 

So, the review is a bit perplexing.

How badly did it clog up pens? IIRC all iron gall inks deposit sediments over time, the trick is to flush the pen with vinegar (others say bleach). I have some sediments buildup in a cartridge where I keep Scabiosa, but has thankfully never clogged my Safari

I use a sturdy third-tier lever pen fitted with a Cross Townsend nib and a friction feed.  Washout?  No problem.  I get all the benefits of ESSRI and none of the problems.  :)

 

Yes, I have many other pens, but I won't use ESSRI in them.  I just restrict ESSRI to a reliable pen I can maintain easily.

 

Life is that way:  choices and compromises.
