    Ink Review - Camlin Scarlet Red

    This is my second review of the ink from the another popular brand in India, CAMLIN KOKUYO whose presence is pan India. Camlin used to manufacture 4 colors of ink in India under brand name CAMEL as follows: Scarlet Red Royal Blue Green Permanent BlackBut lately they have stopped manufacturing the Green and there is a rumor in the market that Scarlet Red might also go of the shelves. This CAMEL Scarlet Red ink , which I will be reviewing today was procured from local market in Delhi for meagre Rs. 15 for 60 ml glass bottle. Camlin Scarlet Red It is a dye based ink and it has turned out to be one of my all time favorite inks. Its bright shocking red ink. Love it. Camel inks or Camlin inks are currently the most used inks in India because of their pan India presence. INK SPLASH Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on Bilt Matrix – 70 gsm Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on JK Executive Bond Paper – 100 gsm DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Drop on Paper Napkin COLOR MATCH Camlin Scarlet Red – Color Match WRITING SAMPLES Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Camlin School Notebook using 3 pens of varying nibs widths The writing makes it clear that this ink offers no or very little shading. But still i love the brightness of this ink, the red brightness it has to offer. So in to your eyes. The ink does not feather at all even on the normal school notebooks and is a very well behaved ink. INK SWABS Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Bilt Matrix (70gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Camlin School Notebook – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right WATERPROOF TEST Camlin Scarlet Red – Waterproof test Its not waterproof at all. Just one run of tap water and all gets washed away. BLOW UP WRITING SAMPLE Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up on JK Bond paper (100 gsm) Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) CONCLUSION: I like the shade of Red thats offered by Camlin. This ink is nice wet ink and has a normal dry up time. It does not clog up the pen even if kept in the pen for a week or two. One more thing is that doesn’t stain the Pen if you are using any demonstrator. Moreover i find it better than other inexpensive red inks in India and some international inks. Must buy if you are in India and love the Red Color Ink. For further details and entries, please visit my blog LINK
  2. 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. I am really happy to see someone in India has taken initiative to standup and make good quality and non standard color Inks. These inks are sold for Rs. 100 (1.5 USD) each for 30 ml ink bottle plus shipping. The inks that are being produced are currently limited to 28 nos. : GOLD RUSH MEADOW GREEN BLUE MAGIC AFTER DARK SAPPHIRE BLUE LAKE BLUE BRONZE LEAF ORANGE CRUSH AUTUMN SINDHOOR GLORY VINE DARK ROSE NJAVAL WILD CHERRY PURPLE PEACOCK YELLOW VALLEY MELLOW BLUE VIVID VIOLET ORCHARD LILY DARK CHOCOLATE COOL BREEZE SILENT NIGHT SKY FORGET ME NOT SKY BLUE GHAT GREEN PUMPKIN GIRL PINK Krishna Inks – Color Chart 1 Krishna Inks – Color Chart 2 I will be reviewing all inks one by one.And I have reviewed the Bronze Leaf Ink Here : LINK Ink can be bought from : LINK (Ebay India Store)

    Ink Review - Bril Laurel Rose

    As mentioned in my previous reviews for the inks, Bril inks are one of the most used and admired inks in India. Bril has been in existence since 1964 and are based out of Bangalore in India.The review is about the BRIL LAUREL ROSE which is my second ink review from Bril. This review is simultaneously posted on my blog which is more detailed. Link to blog is here : INK REVIEW Bril Inks can be purchased from their Webpage as they have launched the webshop recently with nationwide shipping. Bril inks come in following colors: Royal Blue Green Red Laurel Rose Turquoise Blue Violet Black My earlier Ink reviews are listed as below: BRIL ROYAL BLUE CAMLIN SCARLET RED CHELPARK BLACK Also I would like to add that i got the inks as a gift from one of my friend and fountain pen enthusiast, Rakshit Pai. Bril Laurel Rose Bril Laurel Rose is a wonderful color ink which comes in 60 ml glass bottle and is priced at Rs. 18 (USD 0.28). INK SPLASH Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Splash on BILT Matrix Paper – Angled View Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Splash on BILT Matrix Paper – Top View Angled view shows the the sheen ink gives apart from the variation in shades. DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Drop COLOR MATCH Bril Laurel Rose – Color Match WRITING SAMPLES Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on BILT Matrix paper Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on Century copy paper Bril Laurel Rose – Writing samples with three different pens on Camlin Kokuyo Notebook INK SWABS Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Swab on BILT Matrix paper ( From top to bottom – 1 to 3 swabs) Bril Laurel Rose – Ink Swab on Century copy paper ( From top to bottom – 1 to 3 swabs) PEN SCRIBBLE Bril Laurel Rose – Pen Scribble on BILT Matrix Paper WATERPROOF TEST Bril Laurel Rose – Waterproof Test I felt that ink has decent water resistance. 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 – Waterproof Test INK DRYING TIMES Ink drying times were tested on the Bilt Matrix paper and pen used was Jinhao X-450. 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.

    Ink Review : Bril Royal Blue

    I have stocked up lot of inks, especially inks like Chelpark, Camlin, Bril and Sulekha. All these are region specific like Chelpark is easily available in North India and Bril's availability is limited to Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai, and Sulekha only available in Kolkatta that too few colors against 11 colors listed on webpage and lastly Camlin is available pan India. The review is about the Bril Royal Blue Ink, which happens to be my first ink review. And before I go further I would really like to thank Visvamitra and Lgsoltek, whose ink reviews I personally like a lot and is the inspiration for the ink review. Bril inks are one of the most used and admired inks in India. Bril has been in existence since 1964 and are based out of Bangalore. Bril Royal Blue is one of the most used inks in India after Camlin Blue and it is priced at Rs. 15 (US $ 0.25) for 60 ml glass bottle.
