Season 1 seems like the underdog season of Colorverse Ink, but nevertheless it has some amazing colors!  The ones I have tried have exhibited lovely shading and this is no exception.

For this review I decided to ink up my Nakaya Blue Rose Raden – SM nib, recently tuned by Masuyama at the ATL pen show.

Writing Sample

This color strikes me as brown with tones of wine, it is capable of dramatic shading and even has a nice copper sheen in wet pools.  Colorverse has such trait rich inks, I’m looking forward to writing a letter or doing more swirls with this one.
