This is a superb, "old school" ink with a lovely hue: warm without being too
reddish, vibrant without turning loud or showy. In my opinion, it is one of the
best browns one can find at any price.
It is neither particularly water resistant nor fade proof, but then fountain
pen inks of this classic type never pretended to be. It does, as many inks do,
become more "permanent' as it cures on the paper: things written a year ago
don't wash out as much as those only a week or so old. If you are writing your
will, signing a legal document, or penning a manuscript, might I suggest
something like Sailor Nano Ultra Black? For everything else, especially if you
like brown, this is a lovely, beautifully made and affordable ink. Highly
