I need more

I absolutely love this ink. I can't stop writing and drawing with it, I wish they sold it in larger bottles as well...

My favorite!

I've used all three iron gall inks (McCaffrey's, Old World, Blot's), and Blot's is my favorite. As it ages and the water base evaporates, it thickens and darkens. I have a bottle that's 4 years old, and the ink writes *beautifully* -- writes smooth, black, yet still retaining the thinnest thins.I add a few drops of distilled water every once in a while and it just keeps going.

Interesting ink

You have to be willing to roll the dice a bit with this ink. It does transform after drying. It darkens some but has some beautiful wash grays. My wife said she liked my drawings with this ink over others. Worth the experience for sure.

Not my first preference

I tried Blots Iron Gall Ink with various papers and many different nibs, but prefer the results I get with McCaffrey's Penman Ink (which I have used for years).
