Feels like its been a while since I’ve done a review! I’ve been moving for the last few days and anyone who has moved can tell you that it is definitely not fun, and certainly time consuming :(. But now, back to what is important, the ink!
I’ve had this bottle of Kingdom Note Marsupenaeus Japonicus sitting in my untried pile for a while, so I decided to give it a go. With the exception of Bungubox Tortoiseshell Brown, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by browns so far.
The box features a prawn type creature that is super adorable.
This ink has a very interesting shading. It can have a very light saturation or a very dark one at unpredictable intervals. Some may find this characteristic charming, however for my purposes I think the saturation is a bit too low for me to use on a consistent basis. During regular writing I noticed no sheen, but there is a tiny bit in the wettest pools of the ink blob. This may be my least favorite KN ink so far, but nothing is perfect right? ^_^
I leave you now with this awesome photo of the replacement nib with the lovely shading of this ink in the background.
