ORANGE ZEST Robert Oster Singature Ink
My first review here ;)
I really like Robert's inks. I like them in particular for a wide palette of colors, good price and good qualities. Robert is also a very nice guy   ;)

Bottle is plastic, quite modest but I like her design. Its capacity is 50ml.

Rhodia dotpad
The color is well saturated, with a hint of red. It works perfectly in thin lines as well as in wider. Here I use it in nibs: Sailor H-M and Bexley's stub. Shading present in a broader line. Without shining. ;)
Properties good. The drying time is about 12 seconds od Rhodia dotpad, on other papers shorter. Good flow.
Some Oster's inks are a little dry, but Orange zest not.
Ink works well in fountain pens, I had the opportunity to use it for a long time. It's safe.
Here's a sample on various papers.
On Clairefontaine with Noodlers Apache.
Filofax notebook.

Oxford notebook in hard cover.
I like Orange Zest. I can recommend it. Oster has many other interesting oranges. Below the sample. The card has a few months already, so you can see if the color loses its intensity over time.

Thanks for the review and especially the final comparison shot!  I think I prefer the regular orange to the zest, and I would never have known without your picture.  :)

Oh, wow great comparison. Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
