Ink Shot Review: Bookbinders Blue Racer @AppelboomLaren

Thanks to Appelboom for sending this ink for a review! I like Bookbinders inks and I think new colors are always a welcome addition! This was added to their ink line up after the first batch.

PROS
  • Shows nice shading in wet calligraphy nibs.
  • Affordable - not the most inexpensive ink but not the worst either.
  • Great color for water washes and art, or calligraphy.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Nice blue - a little different from just another blue!

CONS

  • Not water resistant.
  • Bottle is hard to fill fountain pens from when it gets around half empty, especially if you have larger fountain pens. 
  • Narrow bottle opening.

OVERALL
I generally like Bookbinder inks - especially the Eastern Brown, Everglades Ratsnake, and Emerald Boa. The blue doesn't seem outstanding until you consider they're all named after snakes of Australia. Suddenly, it becomes a lot more beautiful!


I received this item/these items 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.
