    I now have a vision of Detman in full teddy bear mode flexing his nib whilst guzzling scented cookies I can't decide whether it's disturbing or cute

    Disturbing. Definitely.

    The worrying bit was that I was seeing Detman as the teddy bear. And if those cookies are laced, he might end up looking like my panda...

    Excellent review, and great comments from the peanut gallery! Truthfully, I am not wild about the color. It reminds me too much of teddy bear . . .

    Thanks for alerting me to using flexible nibs with this ink. In I chase shading, I normally don't use semi-flex or superflex in they are often too wet and swallow shading.
    I do use good to better paper.
