This is a very interesting ink, very "vintage" looking. It does need a wet pen. :wub:

 

Check my quick review... https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/309740-robert-oster-signature-inks-part-2/

 

Sometimes copper can look pinkish, so I can see where the name can come from.

 

 

Thanks for the lovely review... :)

Your review is why I tried it! :) I liked it in the flex pen, but in other pens it seemed kind of flat. If I'm using a pink/red in that range, I already have some bottles to use up. I did get a bottle of Australian Opal Mauve & I like it a lot. Edited by julia239

I opened the thread expecting to see something resembling copper. I'm sure copper can sometimes be pinkish but that's probably not people's first thought. Aside from a badly chosen name the color is interesting. It reminds me of a slightly chalky montblanc burgundy red.

Oooooohhh.. I am waiting for my Opal Mauve to arrive... :wub: :wub:

Needless to say, copper can have any number of appearances according to the state of brightness, weathering, whatever. In my experience, I thought this ink looked as much like copper as anything else. Sort of like a moderately faded penny.

Thank you for the great review. I tried this one and really liked it. It is different and grows on you after a while.

It's an unusual colour, quite different from Diamine Ancient Copper (unless my monitor is way off!). This one looks more on the dusky red side of the spectrum. So much so that it looks like it's heading toward Noodler's BSAR.

Oooo that's it! that's what this colour reminds me of! (it's been niggling the back of my mind)

Great review! Doesn't look like copper! :huh:

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
