  • Not a bad brown - somewhat golden tones to it.
  • Shows nice shading in wet calligraphy nibs.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Adorable packaging (see Emerald Boa review for packaging).
  • Affordable.
  • Great color for water washes and art, or calligraphy.


  • 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.


Brown inks are not really my thing, unless they have yellow, golden, or red tones to them. I'm not wild about this one.

Use the new side-by-side Ink Comparison Tool over at Anderson Pens to compare up to five inks at a time, including discontinued/vintage inks. The database is ever growing, with over 800 inks. WOW.

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.
