In Indian Fountain Pen industry or Circles, Dr. Sreekumar is quite known for his hand-turned fountain pens and almost 20 types of nib tuning. However recently he has shelved in to making fountain pen inks under the brand name of KRISHNA.

These inks are sold for Rs. 100 (1.5 USD) each for 30 ml ink bottle plus shipping.

As ink did not fade away too much even after running the paper under tap water for complete one minute. Rather paper started to give away but not the Ink.

Bril Laurel Rose -Ink Drying test BLOW-UP WRITING SAMPLES Bril Laurel Rose – Zoomed in Writing Sample You can see from the above zoomed in writing sample that there is certain bit of shading in the Ink. CONCLUSION I like the pinkish color of Bril Inks. I have used this ink in lot of pens and have realised that this ink stains the converter but gets washed out after using ammonia flush. Still i recommend not use this ink in demonstrators. Must buy at the price.
