My very first Krishna ink. This ink is a part of their Limited Edition IPS Ink, specially formulated for the Indian Pen Show which I was unable to attend. They have two inks as a part of their collection. Winnolam, which I am about to review, and Sufi, which seems to be a green/brown color similar to the Jungle Volcano.
This ink is a beautiful deep royal blue with a red sheen wherever the ink pools, which kind of reminds me of Organics Studio Nitrogen, but doesn’t show nearly as much sheen. This ink costs Rs. 225 for 15 ml on thepenworld.com. Definitely pricey, but most Krishna inks cost that much.

Colour: Deep Blue with Red Sheen.
Drying Time: 25-30 seconds. Doesn’t smear afterwards.
Water Resistance: Low. Reacted very quickly. Some line definition is seen but it is low.
Sheen: Medium. Not a sheen monster like the Jungle Volcano, but still visible on the edges of the ink.
Packaging: Like many others who have reviewed Krishna Inks, the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. But for those who don’t care about how the bottle looks, this doesn’t matter. My only issue with it is that there is no larger bottle available.
