Hero's Iron Gall ink has quite a reputation here so I thought I would give it a shot.

 

It turns out that it is no longer on Amazon or ebay, but I did manage to find it on a site called ebuy7. I was a little reluctant to place an order, but the checkout was (seemingly) legitimately handed off to Paypal so I didn't have to risk my credit card details and if the ink never arrives I am confident I will be able to claw back the miniscule investment it cost for two bottles.

 

I'll update the thread if and when the bottles arrive.

 

If anyone has a more reliable, potentially reputable, source, please do share...

# edit. I found them on aliexpress eventually, but they are a lot more expensive, don't deliver to my part of the world, and that website is such a royal pain in the asset, I refuse to patronise it. :)

Give it four to six weeks before it qualifies as a "new source"... :P

 

Here's hoping, though!

After the discontinuation of the original MB BB, Hero 232 has been my daily goto ink for work. Behaves well, flows well (better than the old MB BB). A bargain at that price.
