Wancher Ebine Violet

Wancher is a brand offered by Engeika in his shop. First five inks were introduced few years ago and names as a Silk Road series.


The inks come in few kind of bottles. The one I have is a simple, cheaply looking 100 ml bottle. It’s not bas as long as tehre’s more than half of it. When the ink level decreases it becomes harder to fill a converter pen – the neck is too long and when you want to insert nib and feed into ink you’ll have to make your hands disrty. Also some converters and nib/feed assemblies are simply too short for this bottle.

Ebine Violet is fun ink. It’s not violet. It;s not pink. It’s somewhere in between. It’s not as saturated as R&K Solferino but it’s definitely not subdued. The ink can cause feathering and bleedthrough. It’s quite wet and I would say it’s decent ink.
