Those of you clamoring for more fountain pen related content--I've heard you! I do have to say that I'm still (very) engaged in my pencil kick right now, but of course I keep four or so fountain pens at the ready. This morning I inked up my Edison Pearlette with Organics Studio's Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red, from their "Masters of Writing Series." This ink was introduced, I believe, at the 2013 Baltimore Pen Show, where I picked it up directly from Tyler. Raven Red is a very nice well-behaved ink that works well on office/student quality paper, as I understand most of Tyler's ink range is designed to do. The only nit I have with EAP Raven Red is the tendency for the ink to crust up a bit on the nib, which is a property somewhat common to red inks and not at all unique to this one. (Yes, I'm talking to you, Visconti Bordeaux.)
I love the color of this ink--it's reminiscent of Montblanc's Limited Edition Alfred Hitchcock, which is perhaps my favorite red ink of all time. I've added my earlier reviews of MB Hitchcock and MB Bordeaux to the gallery below, for comparison purposes.
