Another brown ink... I have never used a Waterman ink before but a quick search online tells me that Waterman inks are well loved. Comparing this brown ink to the Pelikan's Brillant Brown which I was using previously, I would sat that the Waterman is slightly more reddish. That gives it a bronze tinge to it. Waterman Absolute Brown works well with my dry Japense F nib. It has slightl shading and a reasonable dry time.
