Here's a brief review of an ink from another Chinese manufacturer.

Their inks are some of the most expensive Chinese-made inks in China, but this one is too dry for most of my pens.

 

Please pardon any grammar mistakes or nonsensical remarks. I wrote this all at once without stopping to think. :)

You've got it! In stores here they only offer the boring old black, blue, and blue-black colors for Medici inks (part of the Picasso brand), but these look interesting:

I've tried to order three of them via Taobao and, in theory, they're on the way to me. I'm not so enthusiastic though as the last time I ordered ink from Taobao I never received it.

I know what you mean. The problem goes both ways. I just had a Pelikan Silvexa disappear somewhere on the slow boat to China. :sad:

You're right. Sadly, it tends to happen everywhere :/
