5 of 5 Nice! July 21, 2018
Reviewer: Dennis from Millbrook  
This is a great orange ink. I only use orange inks in my Kaweco Sport and Lamy Lx, and I've tried quite a few at this point. This is my new favourite. Cornaline d'Egypte is smooth-flowing, dries at the right speed (i.e. doesn't smudge but doesn't immediately dry on the pen if you pause), and has good shading. The colour is saturated enough not to look too "pumpkin" (like Orange Indien) or "tangerine" (like Iroshizuku Yuyake) yet not so saturated that it might read as red (like Habanero).

One thing: you have to shake the bottle like a maniac to get the sparkles to distribute uniformly. The actual sparkle effect is quite subtle and gives your writing a "wet look."
