Robert Oster Signature Ink - Emerald - A Short Review



Recommended Posts

Robert Oster Signature Inks are a new line coming out of South Australia and are making enthusiasts sit up and take notice! They are very competitively priced too. :D

So, I acquired a handful of these, thus:

  1. Moss
  2. Emerald Green
  3. Deep Sea
  4. Bondi Blue
  5. Fire Engine Red
  6. Yellow Sunset

In the following short reviews the writing samples are created using an Osmiroid B4 italic nib and an Esterbrook 2048 fitted to a standard XT Esterbrook dip-less pen holder.

 

All writing is by dipping. More time is needed to discover how these inks behave in cartridges, converters or eyedroppers.

 

Swabs and comparisons with other inks will be provided later in the week – I’m all out of Q-tips!

 

Okay, here we go, Emerald

Wow! Look at the richness of that colour! :wub:

 

Again, plenty of shading but no obvious sheen. It's a grey, rainy day here so perhaps with a bit of sunshine the sheen - if any - will show. Dry times were about the same as for the Moss ink.

 

Paper is Rhodia, as it is my usual choice.

 

Love the colour. Never thought I would be a fan of greens but these inks are turning my head for sure!

This is one of the colors I didn't get, but I'm going to add. This is beautiful. Thank you.

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

Those are some really slow dry times. Hopefully it will be a little faster in non-dip mode.

Thanks for the review!

Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

In the pen the colors I have tried are fine.
