    Wancher Ebine (Red-Violet)

    Received Wancher Ebine last week, loaded it into a Baoer 388 fine and have been using it off and on since then; now it's time for the review. As you can see, Ebine is a dark-ish red-violet color. It's somewhat similar to Yama-budo, except lighter and redder and, of course, no sheen at all. I came across Sandy1's review of Ebine after having bought YB based on dizzypen's comparison of it and Saguaro Wine. Ebine seems to fall squarely between those two - lighter & less purple than YB, darker & less pink than Saguaro. The color itself is pleasant enough (if you like red-violet), bold yet slightly understated and not as in-your-face as Rose Cyclamen. OK for casual inter-office use, not for client-side. Same for school, ok for taking notes but not for turned-in assignments. Definitely fine for personal use. Pretty well-behaved, overall. Flows pretty well once it's started; took a couple minutes to get going after the pen sat for a couple days. Ever so slight nib creep but no evidence of nib crud after eight days. Seems fairly water resistant (that was probably 15-20 secs on the water test). Shading appears pretty minimal, the line looks fairly consistent. As you can see from the next scan, show-through is very slight on the 24 lb copy paper, better than both YB and Cyclamen; bleed-through also more apparent on the Rose. So, any reason to use this particular ink over something else? Well, it's a pretty color and it's pretty well-behaved. And it's also really cheap inexpensive. The color is somewhat similar to Yama-budo but my Yama-budo cost $18.50 with free ship for 25 ml while Ebine cost $7 + $5.50 ship for 100 ml, so 4x as much ink for 2/3 the price. Now, am I saying Ebine is as nice as YB? Um ... no. There's no sheen, for one thing, and the purple color of YB is a little more appealing. But for casual everyday use where you might go through a lot of ink it's a good alternative. I think that's about it; if I think of anything else, I'll add it.
