Nice, dryish ink. Great shading. I don't own anything to really compare with, and have never written with anything even close. Apologies for the two toned review. the first part is with a dipped pen, so inconsistent, and then I finally emptied a pen to load this ink into.

Beautiful ink! Thank you for the excellent review!
The water test seems to show that it is highly water resistant - is that true?

Thanks for your review. I like subdued inks now. It reminds me of Herbin's Lie de Thé.

I just got this but haven't tried it yet (I'm trying to make up my mind about how much I like Tobacco Sunburst at the moment.

Thanks for the review.

Nice review.

It reminds me of Noodler's Polar Brown...

Thank you.  I got a bottle of the Cherry Sunburst on a recommendation and have been very pleased with it.  I think I like this Guitar grouping. The Desert Burst looks a bit pale for my taste, but is quite an appealing shade nonetheless.
