4 of 5 Beautiful colour, awful bottle. June 17, 2016
Reviewer: Helen Skibinski from Toronto, ON Canada  
I've been using this ink in a Noodler's Konrad for the last few weeks and I really like the colour and the amount of shading I'm getting with the flex nib. The colour ranges from dark burgundy to an almost pink shade. It is a  beautiful colour and I would definitely buy it again, however, the bottle is awful. By the time I got my pen filled, I was covered, my kitchen countertop was covered and it looked like a crime scene. As soon as I have an empty Noodler's bottle, this ink is going in it.

4 of 5 Good shading, short bottle, grows on you August 31, 2015
Reviewer: Tim Parris from Ottawa, ON Canada  
Initially, I had to fight to fill my Conklin Duragraph Stub pen. Eventually, I used a blunt syringe to fill the pen. The bottle is very short and I have yet to get the insert out of the bottle so that I can fill pens easily.

It would be easier if the bottle was taller.

But the bottle opening was good and I am certain that, when the insert gets removed, I will not have the problem.

The smell wasn't bad.

My first thought of the colour was, where is the sheen that people tell me about? It was not showing. I did not like the colour initially.

But the ink goes well on basic photocopy paper and frankly, the colour is growing on me. It writes smoothly and very little feathering. I prefer this ink to the mandated Red Ink and very few people have noticed.

The colour is more burgundy, with shading that approaches (occasionally) green, via red-brown.

This ink is a keeper, but hate the bottle.
