    No - not that one.

    I just found out that this brand has a website - you just have use Google Translate. They make several different "grades" of ink. This appears to be their best, although the colors are similar for all the inks.

    This is great fun! I am learning lots! Thank you for letting me do this.

    I will give you another hint - from the link that Yazeh just posted - TyLee Pen Shop carries this brand's fountain pens. I don't remember if they carry the ink, though.

    SKB is a Taiwanese pen maker and ink maker.

    Here is a link to their website: https://www.skb.com.tw/product/skb%e...ml11%e8%89%b2/

    Use Google Translate.

    The ink that I called "Sky Blue" is actually called Bo Yun and means something like "Dial the Cloud".

    I did an ink review for Fountain Pen Network on the ink a few years ago. The ink is actually pretty nice. It reminds me a lot of Stipula Calamo inks - not super saturated but moderately wet.

    Well done, thi!SKB BOTTLE 2mp.jpg

    Oh well done thi! I don't think I'd have got there for quite a while yet

    Just read the review and I like it a lot - and what a pretty bottle as well.

    The funny thing is that my search had found the Ty Lee shop, but not the inks. Which is a shame, because I really like the look of some of the colours.

    Oh dear - now I've seen the price on these - and I want some! I wonder if they ship internationally. I can't seem to get that bit of the website to translate.

    Here is their contact information. As a result of doing this, and writing with this ink again, I am thinking about ordering some of the other colors. I wished I had bought all of them at the time, but I had enough trouble just getting the one bottle home.

    Wow! You weren't kidding with the difficulty. I was not prepared for that! Haha!
    Is it alright if I try to get the next ink posted within the day? I'm a bit occupied at the moment, but I think I can post one this time.
    Or if you're eager to keep things going, feel free to post another ink!

    Whenever you're ready thi - I don't think anyone's going anyway (unless DrPenfection's off to far flung inky emporia...)

    I have to say, I enjoyed that - I feel inspired to add a bit more difficulty myself

    I’ve really enjoyed these last few inks, but who am I kidding… they’re all fun!
    Did I say that I needed a day? I think I’ve figured out attachments…

    D57DC0CC-835F-43BD-AE03-66D951CBAC37.jpg

    That should be a bit easier right?
    The doodle was just meant to show shading, and isn’t representative of anything.
    (If you’re having difficulty reading any of it, I will gladly translate my chicken scratch.)

    I've considered KWZ Honey as a substitute for this ink when the bottle is empty! However, I own neither of these.
    There are swatches of the guessing ink that are a good match to El Dorado, but in the case of my bottle, it's closer to Honey.
