Lubrication is sometimes a tricky aspect to assess when reviewing inks. Reviewers choose pens, and papers, then they can say how lubricated an ink felt in those pens on those papers, while writing.
My Clairefontaine Triomphe writing paper actually has some drag to it, where the nib sinks into the surface slightly. Certainly more drag than the 100gsm paper that I used for this review.
I love smooth surface papers like Apica and Mnemosyne, but others like to feel some slight resistance. Each to their own I suppose.

I have this thing for burnt-orange/red colors, but, as I already have Ancient Copper, I'm trying to decide if Blood Orange is different enough to get as well.
Scans are tricky sometimes. They look awful close to one another.
Sometimes, I swear that it seems like the ink base is so close when comparing inks, especially if the inks come from the same manufacturer, it's near on impossible to separate two close inks like this, without doing water dropper splashes or chromatography.
I recently got a couple of bottles of ink (same orange-red range), did my usual q-tip swab thing with both, and well as a paper chromatography just for the heck of it, and, I honestly thought that I had received the same ink, in two different labeled bottles when I was done.
It wasn't until I took my samples outside in various lights, that I saw the difference, yet it was so tiny, I still wondered.
Whats maddening is that the mfgr web site swabs were noticeably different. I know paper absorbency makes a difference, and seemingly a more porous paper sometimes makes inks look completely different, when compared to their non-porous smoother cousins.
