  • A lovely, caramelly, toffee-type brown.
  • Nice sheen.
  • Adorable little bottle.
  • Bottle is easy to fill from when it's full.
  • Comes in a cute set with a storage box.
  • Shades beautifully.
  • Well behaved.

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Not so exciting in dry writers or fine nibs.


This ink reminds me of Diamine SBREBrown (or the other way around?) and I really like it, but only with wide, wet writers. I'm not usually crazy about browns but this one is warm with reddish tones that I prefer in my brown inks.

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.
