Love it. Reminds me of Ssilor Yurameku Amamoyoi. However, this color looks exactly like 123

Great dual shading / chromoshading. A special occasion ink only.

This ink is excellent for use in broader nibs and flex nibs. Shades a lovely graypink-greenish. It has a strange chemistry, the ink feel very thin and dry, I see the ink being laid down on the page, but it does somehow feels different from all other inks I have ever used, it feels like writing with pen without ink in it. When not used it feels like the different ingredients in the ink evaporates at a different rate. Because when I use a pen with the ink in it that has not been used for some weeks, the ink is a purely light green ink. After some writing when the feed is fed by more ink from the ink chamber the gray-pinkish shading returns. I love this ink, but only use it for cards/letters and other creative uses. Its definitively not for daily writing.

Beautiful ink

It's nice ink and pretty friendly on most paper I've used it on. It seems to run a little dry in my sailor fm but it's really a non issue. The shading is nice but you need a much wetter pen to utilize this to it's full effect

Delightful Ink

This is a great ink. It's a lovely combination of blue, purple, and grey and transitions between those colors with wetter nibs. Photos don't do it justice. Photo with a sailor MF nib

Nice flow, even in my somewhat dry calligraphy nib Kaweco sport. Beautiful transition of color in stub-nib fountain pens. May even try using like a watercolor paint with a brush. Just lovely.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
