Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually is a true sepia True story: there is actually an ink out there made from the actual ink secreted by squid, from which sepia gets its name. It's made by a Japanese company in very small batches and it's very expensive. Of *all* the inks on the market that carry the name "sepia" and are just varying tones of brown or red, this one is actually closest to the actual color of sepia ink. So in that case, it looks like R&K is your best bet if you're looking for the real deal. A grey-ish brown color that's not very saturated, it has the same great qualities of all R&K inks and it does give an antique flair to off-white and yellow papers, but sometimes it just reminds me of muddy water. That's why I just use it sparingly even though I'm a fan of brown inks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ink! Another great one from R&K. In my view, this is best described as a medium to low saturated, warm gray with brown overtones. Atmospherically it is somewhat similar to "Scabiosa": the same transparency, high shading, a foggy, misty character. Shows a small amount of water resistance (i.e. remains legible after dripping on it or brushing with a thoroughly wet brush). When water-brushed or diluted, it does not separate into different colors. A great pen for journal entries and sketching, both warmer and milder in contrast than most blacks for which it can otherwise be a good substitute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Antique-Looking Ink! This is one of my most favorite inks, in a collection that spans most brands and colors. R&K Sepia is a well-behaved brownish-gray ink that has an antique quality that looks wonderful on paper. I highly recommend this ink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, vintage color I really like brown and sepia inks for journaling and drawing, and I have had very good luck with Rohrer & Klingner products. This sepia ink is no exception. It has a beautiful, vintage quality, and the flow is smooth with good saturation, but with the potential for shading with a medium or broad nib. To help give an idea of this particular shade of sepia, I think the Rohrer & Klingner version is similar in saturation and tone to Kaweco sepia and to De Atramentis "Deep Water Obsession" black-brown, which is just a bit darker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good sepia color This sepia is about as close to what my artist brain thinks it should look like. If you picture an old sepia tinted photo then you are pretty close. It certainly has it's place in artwork, but it is a fugitive color and won't work for long exposed to the light of day. However, in a journal or diary it looks just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ink A bit dry, say 4/10 but that's fine. The color is hard to define. Grey is there, so is brown. There's a tinge of green. What the ink looks like depends on how wet your pen is and what colors are arround it. This ink does not work well in a flex pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best brown ink A true brown grey w No ruddy hints of red. Flows beautifully w nice shading even w fine nib. Pretty much my fav new signature color. Especially nice on ecru or off white papers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soot? Smoke? Amazing! I loved the ink at first sight. The color is some kind of brownish gray which looks like soot. It performs well, very wet. The shading is gorgeous. I do recommend!
