(I C U) Ink Review - Susemai - Red Cashmere



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Thanks Amber.

 

The ink is 3 parts R&K Sepia, I part Diamine Grey, I part Noodler's Black.

 

It's a mix I made to use in my Visconti Homo Sapiens. (Damn that OCD trait)

Whilst it's lived exclusively in my pen since January without a single hitch I understand that R&K do not encourage mixing of their Sepia ink so would like to mention this, FYI, as they say nowadays.

I love your work.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Add some water to it, and see it is red. It's the sheen you are seeing. See the first post on this page. That is all Red Cashmere just different dilutions.

Now this attracts my attention with it's potential in the dark-red, blood-neighborhood. I'll have to go look at the other cashmeres now.

 

And as for the op: "Allegedly." I love it. Appropriate vocabulary is a wonderful thing.

General observations of Red Cashmere:
Well behaved

Easy to clean up

Excellent color

Excellent flow

Would definitely buy this

Don't believe everything you think.

And, would you buy this one?

 

Absolutely. So far, the only one I wouldn't buy is Green Cashmere because I'm not fond of the color. That may change when I dilute it. I am very, very impressed with the quality of these inks. I know I haven't used as many inks as many of your testers but these are among the best I've used: excellent lubrication, great saturation, easy to clean.

We've got another keeper here. Great color, sheen (according to other testers; I wouldn't know sheen if it came up and jumped on my couch), and great shading.

Rather than flushing my pens I went ahead and wrote two pen pal letters, starting with the X450 M, and then when it ran out, with the Calligraphy 1.3mm. I really do like this ink -- the color and shading are such a treat to watch coming out the end of my nibs.

I understand, of the Susemai inks, this is my favorite.

Diluted to 8% and 4%, F nib, Sustainable Earth paper. I'm not happy with the color rending of my scanner but it's close.
