I haven’t been really that happy with how I have been reviewing inks so I decided to shake things up. The main reason for my unhappiness is that I felt there wasn’t enough ink on the page. I am a lot more happier with this review and will continue in this style but maybe look at refining it a bit here and there.
Paper:Rhodia Dot Grid (80g/m - 21.3lb)
Pen: (Twiss Pens) Vintage Orange Ice, Extra Fine Baron/Senator Nib
When I first received this ink I really didn’t like it. I found that while writing I always seem to get more of a grey shade that actually a deep black. After a few days of this I decided to flush out my fountain pen and ink it back up. To my surprise this seemed to make a difference! Maybe I didn’t dry the fountain pen out enough when changing from a previous ink.
Overall this is a pretty good everyday ink. It has nice shades of black and the dry times is pretty good.
This ink has started to grow on me the more I use it. Who knows, this could be my go to black ink!
I would love to know what you think of this style for reviewing inks!
