This is a short review of OS Manganese, originally manufactured under the name Manganate. There are a number of reviews of this ink under that name, so I won't belabor the review. A good basic blue-black. Both Anderson Pens and Vanness Pen Shop have this ink available at the time of writing. I'd bought my own bottle and have a backup. No affiliation with any retailer or pen/ink company. The black marks on the page are due to printing problems. Nothing with ink.
I think the current name is Manganese, instead of Manganate. Is an ink with two names twice as interesting? I like this one. Very similar in depth and saturation to my De Atramentis Sherlock Holmes ink, which is just a little bit more vibrant blue hue. This one flows well, really smooth. Has a bit of shading, but it's pretty dark so it's not going to show in a fine nib. Dry time is on the long side of average.
