Ink & Pen Notes: Ryan Krusac Legend (EF) with Diamine Ancient Copper

Ryan Krusac Legend with Diamine Ancient Copper writing sampleThe Ryan Krusac Legend with its extra fine nib was another DC Pen Show purchase from August. I was surprised to see it had been unused for just over two months. This time I picked Diamine Ancient Copper as it’s ink when I inked it up back on November 7th. It was just over a month when I wrote it dry on December 12th.

Diamine Ancient Copper is a reddish brown I like a lot, but this this extra fine nib doesn’t allow the ink to shine. There’s no shading or line variation. But still, it’s a nice color and I enjoyed the ink.

Being a clip-less pen does limit my use of the Legend. It won’t stay in a shirt pocket and I’m not sure the relatively soft wood would do well in pants pockets. So it took just over a month to write the pen dry.

The Krusac Legend and Diamine Ancient Copper combined to provide a pleasant, if uninspiring, writing experience. I don’t have any complaints but I wasn’t left wanting to immediately re-ink it. In fact, the Legend is back in storage.
