I love taking reader requests for ink reviews. Krishna Sea at Night is another reader request that I’ve gotten recently, and it is a super sheener.
Sea at Night is a dark teal, hidden under a ton of red sheen.
In large swabs you really only see the sheen with hints of the teal underneath.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in all nib sizes.
I used a Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had wet and sticky flow.
Overall, it’s pretty similar to Organics Studio Santiago Sea Blue, so you probably don’t need both. I found it better behaved than Santiago Sea, but not as well behaved as Sailor Yama-dori. I’m just not in love with it, it’s really hard to clean out of pens and it’s rather smeary.
