Ink Review: Robert Oster River of Fire

 

Robert Oster is an Australian ink manufacturer and has developed a large number of colors in recent years. I have tried several of these inks, and have found most of them to behave quite well. Some of the colors are unique, and have unique names. Overall I like the brand and the inks that I have tried.

 

River of Fire is a lovely dark green ink with a very nice red sheen, especially when used on Tomoe River paper. I purchased a sample of this ink from Anderson Pens last fall during a period of time when I was trying many dark green inks. This ink does not disappoint. It behaves very nicely in every pen I have tried with it. It is deeply saturated and flows well. There are some not so positive issues with the ink. It does show through on lesser quality papers, and also bleeds through when pooled. While I would likely not use this ink to take notes at a conference (conference materials are generally printed on very cheap paper), I would not hesitate to use this ink at work on even good copy paper. While it does have a nice sheen, it does not shade well.

 

Here is my handwritten review of the ink:

This is a very nice ink which I do recommend.

A very interesting color, looking like a dark blue green. I would think this ink is rather a wet ink. With a seven-second drying time, it would probably get my left hand inky. It is beautiful. Nice review.

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

It is an interesting in. I am also a lefty, and the dry time doesn’t seem to cause me any problems.

I am always busy doing something. I never let the grass grow between my toes (of course it is winter and the grass isn’t growing much under the snow - well, it doesn’t grow very fast in No. Nevada anyway).

Thank you for your tireless ink reviews! River of Fire is one of my favourites - a champagne ink I would say! In my ink tests it expresses more liveliness and shows strong sheen.

Thank you, great review! Interesting ink, to me and on my display it looks like a very slightly bluish green, or perhaps I'm used to way more yellowish greens like Chiku Rin and Verde Muschiato.

 

The name... :huh:

It is a very nice ink, and does have a lovely red sheen. You can't see it in the scan, but the actual sheet has a nice red sheen around the edges.

I had a sample of this and, apart from not understanding its name, found it to be an interesting color. I already have others in the same family, but I think this one sheens more than similar colors that I've used, so fans of sheening inks should be pleased. I seem to remember its flow being more generous than the average RO ink in my experience, but don't quote me on that.
