Ink Preview: Robert Oster Frankly Walnut (Federalist Pens Exclusive)

Federalist Pens released their latest ink collaboration with Robert Oser: Frankly Walnut ($18 for 50ml bottle) which was unveiled at the DC Pen Show this year.

Frankly Walnut looks reddish brown on Col-o-ring paper but on Tomoe River it looks almost purply. Fascinating.

When compared with other brown inks, many Robert Oster were similar but different. Robert Oster Chocolate is probably the closest but is a bit more red orange in undertones where Frankly Walnut is a little more reddish in undertone.

Everyone looks for different characteristics in a brown ink: some prefer cool browns, others a warmer brown. Some want a more orangey color, or lighter or darker shades. Some might want a brown closer to black. Frankly Walnut provides a new option in the ever-growing rainbow of browns.

  1. That is beautiful. I adore brown ink. I use it fairly often and always have one pen inked in brown in my edc. So far I have just used the J. Herbin, but I like how dark this is.
