3Oysters (or 3 Oysters? who knows) is a Korean ink company. Their ink comes in 38mL cube-ish bottles that have a corner missing, so as to allow you to tip the bottle over and refill better. Or so they say, anyway - I was sent this in a sample bottle from amberleadavis. Thank you, Amber! I am really fond of this ink. It's not quite purple gray; I would call it a mild and calming fuschia. It reminds me of the orchids that my mom zealously tries to keep alive. A very nicely behaved and beautifully shading ink, with no major problems except lack of waterproofness, I suppose. Smoother and wetter than other unsaturated shady colors I have encountered. I am beyond captivated by how it looks in a demonstrator - here is a PenBBS 480 in the Smog colorway. Anyway, on to ink characteristics. Bleeding: Better than average Dry time: Average, perhaps a bit fast? Feathering: None on fp-friendly paper Haloing: Yes! Lubrication: Just a bit better than average Saturation: Unsaturated Shading: Heaps Sheen: None Smudging: None at normal moisture amounts Water Resistance: None Wetness: A bit better than average Closeups: Fine Nib Wing Sung 659 F on Campus Business line (moderately fp-friendly) I would honestly call the overall experience "comfortably readable". Obviously, your mileage may vary. 0.6 Stub PenBBS 352 on Campus Business Line (moderately fp-friendly) 0.6 Stub PenBBS 352 on Maruman Loose Leaf (very fp-friendly) Honestly, I don't know why it looks like there's white flecks. Probably from reflective surfaces of the paper. it's a solid purple IRL. Medium nib PenBBS 480 M on Stalogy (moderately fp-friendly) Medium Nib PenBBS 480 on Maruman Loose Leaf (very fp-friendly) Once again, sorry for the white flecks. Ink Comparison (it's in the middle) And of course, a doodle.
3Oysters (or 3 Oysters? who knows) is a Korean ink company. Mustard is part of their Delicious line, which come in 38mL cube-ish bottles that have a corner missing, so as to allow you to tip the bottle over and refill better. Or so they say, anyway - I wouldn't know, because this is from a sample from the generous amberleadavis. Thank you, Amber! This ink is a delightful dark mustardy yellow brown. I noticed that is seemed to "soak in" to papers a bit more compared to the average ink. I think I will save this to use on TR and such for the nice crisp halo. Bleeding: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly Dry time: Nothing out of the ordinary. Feathering: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly Haloing: Yes, and beautifully so, but not in a fine nib on moderately good paper Lubrication: Less than average Saturation: Average Shading: Very much. Sheen: None whatsoever Smudging: None when dry Water Resistance: Surprisingly, a bit survived after contact with some droplets, but don't bank on it. Wetness: Average Closeups: You can see here some weird white-ish spots in the text, making it look a bit chalky. These are present under magnification but really difficult to see in real life.

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.
