Krishna The Earth

Krishna inks are produced in India by Dr. Sreekumar, a doctor by profession, and a fountain pen enthusiast by passion. It’s not easy to get them but I received some samples and plan to review them.

The Earth is  a faux iron gall ink – it changes color very fast once the ink is on page but offers no useful water resistance. The ink is a bit dryish but not too much. The color is a nice orange in the vial and for a second when you put the line, it fastly turns darker and, at least to me, less atractive.

It behaves a bit like chameleon as the color perceived on different papers varies strongly.
