Paper: Kyokuto F.O.B. COOP – Dot Grid – B5

Notes:

J. Herbin caught some flak when they released a blue 1670 ink a few years back and it had no gold flake. Well, no need to worry any more, as they’ve added a good amount of it to their deep blue 1670 ink. The gold flake (shimmer, whatever you want to call it) is a very fine powder, so be careful about leaving it in any one pen for too long. I haven’t had any clogging issues with regular use, but there’s no harm in being a little bit more cautious with this ink. Flow and saturation are good, and the gold flake really pops against the darker blue. Although some may have preferred a silver sheen, don’t knock it until you try it. The blue and gold looks pretty great in my opinion.
