Interesting. On my screen it looks a bit like Noodler's El Lawrence (an ink I like a lot, even though it's a seriously weird color). It would be interesting if someone could do a side by side comparison, especially as to Smoked Iron's water resistance.

I love that color, but I just don't want a 30mL bottle. I want 50mL at least to be worth the space on my shelves.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)

The bottles are square and do not take a lot of space.... ;-)

And not just square, but very slim rectangular, similar to Diamine’s compact 30ml bottles (but much better looking, remind me of vintage medicine cabinet bottles and labels).

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”
