Get your hands on Krishna Inks ! Now available on Ink Crib!
Krishna Inks is the brain child of Dr. Sreekumar who is also well-known in the Indian Fountain Pen community for his hand-turned fountain pens and almost 20 types of nib tuning.
Dr. Sreekumar's intense desire to produce high quality fountain pen inks in India gave him the inspiration to develop Krishna Inks.
The inks itself belong to many sub types, though the users may be interested in writing qualities only. The colors you may perceive as similar in the monitor actually differs much when comes to the writing properties in the real world.
All inks are neutral or near neutral and very safe to pens except the Kot-massi series. Inks are made for free flowing and clog free writing. Some inks like Sea & Storm may be more flowing which is specifically used for a dry writing pen.
For some inks shading may be the character, for some others bold lines, and for some it may be water fastness. Like Orange crush & Cool breeze for shading and After Dark for Bold lines, to exemplify a few.
Note that pure water fastness is only for Permanent Blue black and color changing capabilities are only for some Kot- massi series inks only.
