In case you’re wondering: yes! Iron gall ink is more acidic than many of its inky peers, and it may “eat” your nib a bit quicker than other inks. As per usual, make sure you have a couple of extra nibs on hand to use when your nib goes kaput. I promise: the slightly increased wear on your nibs is worth it. You’re going to love this ink!
I purchased the Iron Gall ink recently and I’m so glad I did!! I love it!! 😊

Love this iron gall ink! Very smooth, nice gradients and able to create lovely fine flourishes. Thanks Lindsey for for the supplies!
I love the consistency and color of this ink! It is smooth, easy to write with, and has a beautiful gradient to it. I don’t think I can ever go back to using another ink 🙂
I enjoy practicing with this ink. I had been using Sumi ink but the consistency of the iron gall helps me make the thin upstrokes. I also can do my flourishes more easily!
