Here's a nice, heavily shading ink from Private Reserve that I enjoyed reviewing. However, I still think Apache Sunset—more saturated, even heavier shading—is the better orangey/yellowy ink. Apache Sunset is the benchmark by which all other shade-heavy orange/yellow inks are judged. Still though, Shoreline Gold is a great ink most definitely worth a try. :)




Please remember to vote on this ink in the poll! :thumbup:

Thanks. I agree with you... if AS didn't exist, I'd buy this Shoreline. It seems unfortunately in comparison to AS a bit watered out, or I still look down too much towards the water to see the reddening sky above just above it.

It looks like a nice ink, but I'm not a huge fan of orange/yellow inks (although I have happily made an exception for Apache Sunset) so I am not likely to buy it.

I like it a lot. One of my favourite inks for flex pens, because of how well behaved it is and the wonderful shading. I personally find the slightly more washed out look and less intense colours of Shoreline Gold over Apache Sunset.

I think I like it more than AS (not that I have much of a use for either - orange inks aren't really my thing) because the shading seems more gradual. The quite sudden color changes I see with AS are not really my idea of shading. Thanks for the beautiful review! :-)

Any opinions on Apache Sunset vs. Shoreline Gold vs. Edelstein Amber? I know of the last two --and like them both very well, but I do not know the first. Significantly different and more complex?

You can see Apache Sunset in the sample at the start of this thread. It is more fiery, a stronger and starker mixture of deep-red-orange and gold. Not so much a blend of shading of one color, but more a mixture of two colors that appear to separate (in a sense).

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
