Two more KarasKustoms Inks arrived today, further feeding my obsession with them. These are two new finishes but I reviewed the Ink here. With eight fountain pen versions and three rollerballs it’s rather obvious I like them.
The new additions include a Tumbled Raw Aluminum finish. I went with a aluminum gripping section, although I can swap with any of the others. I picked a medium nib since I already had a fine nib in another aluminum section. Although I can swap nibs if I ever want to fine aluminum sections inked at once. I like the raw look of the aluminum. It’s a finish I didn’t see in the Kick Starter or on their website until very recently.
The second addition was the Gold version with a brass gripping section and a fine nib. I already had a brass section but I really like both the gold and orange finishes and the brass section is ideal for both pens. I can envision inking both pens at the same time and wanting brass sections.
I included a comparison photo showing both the my new gold pen and the older orange (which looks more gold in most light).
Also new, at least for me, was that the raw aluminum pen arrived in a actual box. It’s a simple but functional box. Even though it’s apparent in the photo, I missed the section and converter in the box and opened an empty pen.
I think this will satisfy my obsession for awhile. At least until they come out with a brighter orange finish.
