    Robert Oster Summer Storm

    Summer Storm doesn't get a lot of love, but if you're looking for a blue-grey (with a slight emphasis on the blue), you might consider it. Personally, I really enjoy it, but I like blue-greys, so I am biased in that. It behaves well, although it is on the dry side. It's dark enough to read without turning into black (a pet peeve). This isn't the perfect grey, but it's a nice color.

Choose from (in alphabetical order!): Chu Shu - Sailor Jentle Keshimurasaki - Kyo no Oto Sakuranezumi - Kyo No Oto Scabiosa - Rohrer & Klingner Summer Storm - Robert Oster Sydney Lavender - Robert Oster Challenge question: Which is your favorite?!
  3. I recently got in an order of Robert Oster inks and decided to try out the new Summer Storm. I don't know much about it other than it was given to some Australian FP users as an "Unnamed Blue-Grey" for them to come up with a name. "Summer Storm" definitely evokes images of stormy rain clouds, but whether they appear only in Summer, I'm not sure Here is a quick writing sample using a Pelikan M800 B on white Tomoe River: http://imgur.com/TIbxco3.jpg Here on Maruman Report Pad paper and on Rhodia Dotgrid paper: http://imgur.com/wTk6Cg5.jpg The shading is good, and the ink is quite light and reminiscent of Iro Fuyu-Syogun. Lubrication is not the greatest, it feathers some on Maruman and Rhodia, but has nice shading. I like the look of it most on Tomoe River compared to the other 2 papers. It goes down leaning more towards blue, but as it dries a tinge of lilac comes out. Overall, I feel this is a nice ink, but not a must have. I'm a much bigger fan of some of the other inks from this line. As for blue-greys, I prefer other inks to this as well. This is my first review, apologies if it is lacking
