March 2014 Ink Drop "Lasting Impression"

This month's Ink Drop is a set of permanent inks. The handwriting is my wife's. It's always better than mine.


These pictures were taken out in the sunlight.



I actually got a sample of this from my wife for xmas, but I haven't tried it yet. It looks cool.

This is the other iron gall ink (Salix is, too) in this collection, and I've been a little chicken to try them out. I will, though. 

I've used this ink before, and it's awesome. Here's the review.

I've heard that both Salix and Scabiosa are really well behaved in pens. I only have personal experience with Scabiosa and it was great! Used it in my Noodler's Nib Creaper (in case it ruined a pen, I wanted it to be a cheap-ish one!) and it behaved very well. No staining or corrosion to speak of.

Thanks for the comment. I've been using Salix in my Pilot VP for the last week, and it's really well-behaved. I like that the ink kinda oxidizes, but I wish it was a little darker.
