This beautiful bottle has been sitting in my collection for a while, but until now haven’t reviewed it. The only reason I can think of is that this was one of the first inks in my collection and I hadn’t really started blogging yet. This is a beautiful color though, and I hope that it inspires/enables!
The first thing you’ll notice about this ink is the fantastic packaging.
It comes in a high quality box, with a glass bottle within. The bottle itself has a very interesting slant. The cap is very heavy and its easy to tell that they put a lot of effort into the presentation. But how is the color?
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M600 M Nib, its a fantastic, wet writer, and while this ink lacks sheen in writing, it shades!
Line going down on 68GSM TR:
This ink is a shader! It has a bit of red sheen but only in the wettest pools, and I could not find any during regular writing. The consistency of the ink feels a bit different than normal as well, it feels a bit thicker than normal ink if that makes sense. I can’t wait to try more Caran D’Ache colors!
I leave you now with a teaser photo of an exciting new development….Details coming soon! ^_^
