Thanks for the info. 

SBRE Brown seems tricky to get a hold of (the one spot in Australia with it listed on their site was sold out) but I will look at terracotta. 

I haven’t had a chance to get some nice photos happening. It’s been a bit overcast here and was hoping for the sun to come out to really take advantage 


I also haven’t inked the pen yet.  It might seem a little silly, but I’ve been looking at inks, and it seemed odd to fill it with something safe, like Aurora black, only to flush when my chosen ink arrives. 




Out of my excessive arsenal of brown inks, the two I always prefer for my bronze Arcos are Akkerman SBRE Brown and Diamine Terracotta. Both have that exact nuance that seem made of the same material of the pen, but liquid... Terracotta is brighter, for the days when one feels that life deserves a celebration. Akkerman's is a bit soberest, and almost perfect.


Please, let we know for which ink you eventually decided, maybe with a shot of your incoming pen...
