CONS

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Some bleed through.
  • Can be feathery with wet use.
  • Not the most well behaved ink with moderately fountain pen friendly paper - use some good paper for this one.

OVERALL

I like a good green ink. This one is quite pretty, shades beautifully, and is a true green - no yellow or lime or anything else. I particularly enjoy this ink on Tomoe River Paper. I think it works best with seriously fountain pen friendly papers.

Abraxas Inks of Switzerland at Laywine's @laywines

You might have heard me mention Laywine's in Toronto before. I did a Field Trip not too long and a visit with Eric as well!

Laywine's is carrying a new ink line from Switzerland - Abraxas Inks! They come in cute little bottles with corks and wax seals. The four inks I have tested are all scented, and there are many more colours in the lineup. You can contact Laywine's for more details or to purchase your own. They're premium inks with a hefty price tag of $29.00 CAD + applicable taxes.

Abraxas Inks describe these inks as the Classic Line, available in many colors - some are safe for fountain pens and others are not. These ones are!

Please enjoy this little preview of the inks before my reviews hit the blog here!
