CONS
  • Not an inexpensive ink. 
  • No water resistance.
OVERALL

I am a big fan of Robert Oster inks. I enjoy their saturation, shading, simple bottles that are easy to fill from, and they're well-behaved. Astorquiza Rot is named after a lovely woman I am honored to call a friend, and I think this is a truly stunning color.

I received this item free of charge because I bought something like ten inks from BauerInks.ca and she wanted to give me a gift! I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.

@BaronFig Squire Rollerball & Squire Clicky Ballpoint

Thanks to Baron Fig for sending the Squire Clicky in Fig Wine! I wanted to do a little comparison of the ballpoint and the rollerball to help you if you are torn between the two! ... You could also get both. I received the Squire Rollerball at a discount to share with you and the Clicky free of charge to share with you.
