I really like this ink. So much so I just ordered more along with Skull and Roses. There are three sources in Germany I've found. However, I was frustrated trying to navigate their German sites. The solution was to go through Amazon. Same price.

But, I do have a question. Chrissy, you said no evidence of nib drying. I have it in two wet pens, Visconti HS Lava and Pelikan M800. Both dried out to the point of no flow several times yesterday; even with the cap on. I've never had that problem with either pen, regardless of ink. Still love the ink.


How long did it take for shipping from Germany to Kentucky? Just wondering.


All the Best.

I understand that it is the sheen that smears.  Yet, they are the only ones of the sheening inks I own that are this bad.
Rhodia and Clairefontaine paper make the "problem" worse, as they are not very porous.

Lay down enough ink to sheen, and it will smear just from rubbing with a finger, on which there are microscopic beads of sweat/moisture on the skin.


The paper I used for the card stock is Arttec Como 210gm drawing paper, and so should not have a problem with ink taking hold. The November Rain splats were done four days ago, and the other others about three weeks ago.

Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. I believe we're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but no shared values and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative.
