Black and Sheeny November 19, 2016
Reviewer: Jason Waskiewicz from North Dakota  
I bought this ink on a whim, but I really enjoy it. As a black ink, it has a nice color, but it is black. Since I usually use black ink for situations where I need it to be waterproof, this ink did not make the grade. What sets this black apart is the red sheen when it dries. That moves this ink from the category of "work ink" to "fun ink." It lays down a good line, does not seem to feather or bleed much, and the red sheen is a nice surprise. The snake theme is fun, and the packaging is fun, though I haven't found any use for the burlap sack.

Not very well behaved September 25, 2016
Reviewer: MTW from Seoul, Yeongdeungpo-gu South Korea  
I heard about the problems this ink has with drying out nibs, but thought I could dilute the ink and get around them.  

Nope.  The pen still clogs if I hold it uncapped for a moment.  

The service from Anderson Pens, though was great.  I have never had something shipped to Asia so quickly.

It's black May 30, 2016
Reviewer: Thomas from SoCal US  
Loaded in a Parker Frontier, on cheap paper it's intensely black, on BnR spiral also very black.
Bad problem with drying out if pen unused more than ~14 hours, took a drop of water on the nib to get going. Was pen, not ink. Put in a Parker Vector, made sure it was writing, let sit for 48 hours, it wrote straight away; all seems good now. If you have problems with it drying, try a different pen.
In Vector, color is still very black on cheap, on BnR, still black but not quite as intense, there's even a little shading, not a lot but noticeable.
Not seeing any red sheen on the BnR from either pen.
First time customer, bowled over by service. Ordered early Thurs morn, received on Sat! Extremely well-packed and greeted by a delightful mint smell when I opened the box from Wintergreen Life-Saver they put in. A+++++ on presentation.
Price (incl shipping) very reasonable, 1/2 what I'd have paid ordering it direct from Bookbinder.
