I finished a fill of Deep Sea just yesterday evening. I have marked it as one of my favourite Robert Oster inks, among the half dozen I have from his catalogue of billions and billions. I find it better on paper than I am seeing here on the monitor, though the colour is true enough.

Deep Sea's a favourite of mine too. Deep, beautiful colour, well behaved ink.

However no water resistance at all.

 

To add to Jan2016's review, I had posted this in the 'art gallery' thread some time back - all done with Deep Sea. It shows how the ink behaves on drawing paper, in pen (Delta M 'fusion' nib) and on brush - pure and diluted.

I didn't have time to do Fire and Ice but it is on the list. Now with the holidays coming I am a little bit short on time, but my next review I will do the Fire and Ice.

Great, Thanks. I have the Fire and Ice so I am interested to see how they compare. I have noticed Robert Oster makes several inks that have twins like Bondi Blue and Blue Water Ice.

Nice artwork!

 

Too much green on the blue for me, though... Or is it too much blue on the green? Oh well.

 

Thanks for another nice review, love them!

I really like the look of this. Never had an Oster ink before so I feel a purchase coming imminently.

      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
