CONS
  • Only available at Franklin-Christoph! I guess that's not a huge deal...
  • Low water resistance.
  • If the traditional bottle gets sloshed around, ink can get into the threads of the cap, and then transfer to the threads on the mouth of the bottle, and it can cause very minor ink leakage. Try to keep the bottle steady. I occasionally clean out the threads (I also have to do this for other ink bottles, so it's not exclusive to these, but it is something to be aware of). 
OVERALL

Another hit from Franklin-Christoph! Great red that makes me think of Urushi fountain pens. Delicious. Again, I don't see this one often enough so I'm happy to share it with you here. $12.50 for 60 ml of this, in a glass bottle (if you opt for the traditional bottle) is a great price for a well-behaved, good looking ink.


I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
