After receiving a bottle of this as a gift (the very same day I received my sample, hilariously), this has become my go-to journaling ink. It runs a tiny bit dry, but in a wet nib it is just about perfect. Good shading. Looks lovely when mixed with R&K Salix, too.
Great deep purple.
Shading of this ink is really beautiful. I used it in my Custom 74 fine nib. I like the color and it flows nice too, but I am just bit scared of Iron Gall inks... Because I am too lazy to wash my pens every week like some suggested for Iron Gall inks to avoid damage to the pens....
