Birmingham Pens Emerald View Park Oxidized Brass

 

Based on the positive review of some of the inks from the Birmingham Pens shop in Pittsburgh, PA I ordered the full sampler pack of 30 inks. I know some won;'t be to my taste, but many seemed quite interesting. The inks certainly win the award for the longest names. I stashed the samples away for relatively easy access, and this was the first ink I blindly selected for review. Interestingly (or not) it has also been reviewed recently.

 

This is a dark gray ink with a strong blue undertone. To me it appears as dark gray in most light, but often will appear as a dark, neutral blue. It's quite neutral in appearance, and would go well in a business setting. Normally I don't favor gray inks but this one is quite nice. It is also quite water resistant. It has decent saturation, but is easy to clean from the pen. The ink seemed quite shady across a broad range of papers, and has some sheen on Tomoe River. The handling was very good with no show through or bleed through experienced, no hard starts or skips, just a pleasant writing experience.

 

Pen: Pelikan M400 (M)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory.

Camera: iPhone 7 using Camera+ app

The images were fairly decent, but the FPN uploader seems to modify the images making the ink appear darker and with less range than in reality. As always with ink reviews, you may want to order a sample prior to diving in on a full bottle.
