I have been wanting to try this ink and also to finally try my Opus 88 demonstrator – truly a thing of beauty in itself. A great review of the pen can be found at papergirl.
This ink has been around since 2015 but it wasn’t until 2017 that I finally treated myself to a Mont Blanc pen buying a Blue Hour Le Grand. Of course by then the limited edition ink released when the pen was released was no longer available – I was in blissful ignorance. Recently a fountain pen-pal offered me some ink samples which included this ink, I snapped up the opportunity to try the ink in the pen of the same name.
Krishna inks are handmade by Dr Sreekumar in Palakkad, Kerala state, India. Dr Sreekumar has been making ink since 2010 and he is also known for his pens and nib tuning. It does surprise me it has taken this long for an Indian pen / Ink manufacturer to make a name for themselves outside of India as there are a lot of pen / ink manufacturers there but product is not easy to obtain.
