Robert Oster Verde de Rio

Robert Oster is new player in fountain pen ink market. He operates through worldwide network of wholesalers. The inks are sold in 50 ml PET bottles with a tightly secure twist cap. I don’t know who makes the inks for the shop, but the colors look interesting and fresh. At the moment Robert Oster inks are available in billion colors – I lost track how many.

Sample of Verde de Rio was sent to me by Akszugor. The color is fresh and nice. I like it a lot. The ink feels rather wet but, as most RO inks, lacks lubrication. There’s no water resistance.
