First off, this is my second review with the Hero 9018 and it’s awesome for doing ink reviews. The variation in line width that’s obtainable with one pen/nib is great for showing off how an ink looks in different configurations. Onto the ink…all signs should say that I shouldn’t like this ink (because it’s orange) but I totally do. The great shading and burnt color bring the ink well outside of the typical range of oranges. This ink would look super great in the Kaweco ART Sport in Amber acrylic, and that’s probably where it will end up next. Practicality is questionable, but it’s a great ink that would nicely compliment a brown pen. One thing worth noting is that this ink likes to gunk up feeds and nibs when left unattended for a while. I only experienced this a little bit, but keep an eye on anything you have it in. It doesn’t appear to damage anything, but may be a bit hard to clean out. Also, huge thanks again to Azizah over at Gourmet Pens for sending over the sample!
Thanks for reading and enjoy the review!
