Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color love the color and the ink so far has been very well behaved. ?I like the brown ink" was my wife?s comment as I was writing notes and working on office routine. Now she borrows it to write notes to her friends. Fountain pens open the creative to more color in the world and this color is one you can use professionally and still have some fun. Shading is good, ghosting on notebook paper is not bad, and pens clean up very easily when changing inks. An excellent reddish brown color predominantly but use in different nibs and the color shifts, part of the joys of being distinctive in the use of a true fountain pen and choosing your inks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but Troublesome I have to say this is a beautiful color and looks like a brownish red. I used it with my Monteverde Mts of the World Fuji pen but soon afterwards started having issues. My nib would crust horribly overnight. I have never had an issue like this with any other fountain pen or ink. I do not know why this ink does that. I also had issues trying to get it to flow. I had to twist converter quite a bit to get the ink flowing and even then it would railroad here and there. I have read other reviews and apparently other people are having the same issues. I think from here on out I will only use this ink with my glass dip pens to avoid the terrible crusting issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really awesome looking This is a very fun ink to write with. Through a fine nib, it just writes as a vary dark almost black-brown, but put it in a flex pen, or wide italic, and it really comes alive. It goes from a dark chocolate brown, to a brilliant autumnal orange, with a slight metallic tone. It even has a bit of a sheen that sits on top, similar to inks like the J.Herbin 1670. When you lay down a large patch of ink, either drawing or through a flex pen with, it will sometimes have a cool metallic outline. I keep this ink in a Pima Tortoise Ahab and a Wing-Sung 590 with a broad nib, and absolutely love writing with both because of the ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terra Cotta Orange/Red/Brown Like the title says, this ink has a lovely terra cotta orange/red/brown color. In natural light, it has the color of a clay flower pot. The ink has excellent shading from a lighter orange to a darker reddish orange when used in a pen with a wetter flow. This ink is similar to Diamine's Oxblood, but tends to the red-orange end of the spectrum rather than the red-brown of the Oxblood. Diamine inks are well behaved across the board and this one is no exception with great flow, lubrication, saturation, and shading. I highly recommend this ink to anyone looking for an understated orange-red shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamine Ancient Copper Ink I've been waiting for this ink to come available for a while, and I loved the feature that Goulet has that meant I got an email when it was back in stock. I ordered it right away, and (as usual) it was shipped pretty much immediately. The ink itself is wonderful. It's exactly the color that I was looking for (I had previously tried Private Reserve's Copper Burst, and while it was a lovely ink, it didn't have the reddish color I was looking for in my copper). I find the shading in this ink to be truly amazing, on top of its lovely color. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high-quality, copper-colored ink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty, but Crusty I bought this ink as a sample. By coincidence, I got an Inkdrop sample of Noodler's Antietam at the same time. Honestly, the Noodler's is almost the same color and the far superior ink. The Diamine has a beautiful color. It has nice shading and a brownish-red color. It's not copper really, but maybe a copper oxide. The trouble is, it is not a very nice ink to work with. It crusts easily in my pen overnight. It's awful for flexing: it railroads in a heartbeat. It just doesn't flow well at all. I won't be buying any more of this ink. But I do recommend the Noodler's Antietam as an alternative.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's cool!! There isn't any other ink on the market quite like ancient copper. It gives amazing shading and dries with hints of red, brown, and black. The ink has a distinctive copper sheen that really makes your writing come alive. That being said, this is not an everyday ink. Dry time is medium-long and it has a tendency to bleed on cheap paper. Even so, I would highly recommend this ink especially if you write letters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Writes well, not perfect, but not terrible either. In my TWSBI 580 EF Rose Gold nib , it writes quite smooth once you get past the 10 seconds of start up. I like my writing quite sharp and this ink shows a suprising amount of shading for a EF which is pleasant. I think that for the price it's not bad . I'm in the market for trying out many samples of different colours, I have only tried Noodlers X feather and that was like silk pouring out of a spiders abdomen , very lubricated and glassy. This ink isn't as lubricated and I do not mind the slight feedback due to the lack of lubrication. Overall I think the ink is great. However, I'd still try many other inks from other companies to explore what is out there. Btw , I have been writing in an OXFORD 90GSM . Regards IBRAHIM
