I love this ink! A true brown with no hint of red, like Terre de Feu has. Unlike other reviewers, I've had no trouble with flow or hard starts with this ink. It behaves as beautifully as the rest of the Herbin line, so far. Looks great on cream colored paper, by the way. I'll probably buy the big bottle of this next time!

This is a really nice color. I did notice some little flakes that seemed to make my pen flow less smooth. I will try it again after I clean my pen to see if that helps. Love the color on ivory paper.
