Interesting chromatography: a lot of haloing/outlining. I really like Oster inks (one is my favorite out of all inks) and would use them more, but very much dislike their lack of water resistance :(

@Intensity:

I do not test for water resistance, but your observation is right. Nothing is left at the line, so I do not suspect any water resistance. As comparison you can see the chromo of Noodler's Walnut were there still is a line visible.

Thank you, I've learned that from your explanation in a different thread. It has been a very useful indicator, and I really appreciate your chromatography samples now!

Have you done a review of Waterman's Absolute/Havana Brown? It does a good deal of outlining with a wet flow pen, even on thin lines. I like it a lot.

I will try to do the review of Waterman Havannah Brown on short notice

Sorry, I did not mean to rush you! Please take your time and focus on enjoying writing out the reviews of the inks YOU want to review :D

I don't mind a teal. At the moment I will stick with Deep Sea.

 

Not a paradigm for naming consistency, Oster inks.

      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
