Writing sample of the Korean ink 3 Oysters giwa, rather than a full review. Giwa is dark gray with a tinge of green. North Americans would describe it as slate. Fans of murky greens will like this one. Kim Jong-hae is a poet born in Busan, South Korea.

Thank you for the sample.  I would love to get your opinion of the formulation.  Is it wet, dry, lubricated, etc?   Thank you so much!

Neat! If I may say so, I see less a tinge of green but more a hint of bronze. "Slate" sounds good. And... nice poetry!!!

Bronze is a good way of putting it, just on the border of a green patina.

I havent used the ink in enough pens to get a great idea of properties, probably. In a Platinum Preppy with a medium nibs, its smooth and flows nicely, moderately saturated and just a little shading, a fluid experience writing these few lines. Its definitely not dry.

I have the 3 Oysters Mustard ink and really love it, because it is such a unique color! -- in my opinion!  I will be very quick to order the other "colors," if they too are somewhat unique!  I know that the word unique could mean different things to different people. Just let me say ---- the Mustard is NOT the color of fresh "store bought mustard" used on sandwiches ----- NO! --- NO! --- I don't know how to describe the color!  Could be "brown mustard."  or dirty mustard--- But the word "dirty" there should NOT mean something that is spoiled, or soiled!!!!!! If you have the other 3 Oysters colors, please tell me if these colors are unique! I am really ready buy them if they are unique! ---- Chas. Skinner
