Nice color December 21, 2015
Reviewer: Jonathan Whitehorn from Flagstaff, AZ United States  
The color itself darkens over time, but the ink offers a lovely shade of purple with great shading and waterproofness.

A good Iron-Gall Ink! June 24, 2015
Reviewer: Don Greenwood from Bangs, TX United States  
I love the color and the permanence of this ink! It didn't do well in my Twsbi 580 (M) however it's doing amazing in my Jinhao 159. Starts every time and no skipping! Drys fast too!

Lovely Ink
Reviewer: Martin Leverton from Kettering, Northamptonshire  
The two Rohrer & Klingner "Iron Gall" inks (Salix and Scabiosa) are lovely inks, and the swabs accurately match their colour. They also both have a fascinating hue which is hard to describe but makes them "different" somehow, to my eye. They're a modern form of Iron Gall inks, which are apparently perfectly safe for modern fountain pens, dry quickly and are then waterproof. They have a dry flow, and would be best in a pen with a wet nib. These are not ones I use all the time, but I do love them, and regularly return to them. I, personally, have found both these inks to be excellent for use with italic nibs. I suspect that this is because they flow slowly and dry quickly. In my own particular experience this seems to enhance the italic qualities of the nibs, in a way that can't be measured simply by quickly drawing the usual criss-cross line variation grid.
