Robert Oster Signature Inks are handmade in Australia. The recyclable PET bottles are manufactured in Australia's first carbon neutral plastics plant. A message from Robert Oster:

"My great interest in fountain pen inks - and by extension, inks that combine many creative applications - began with the birth of my love of fountain pens in 1989. As Robert Oster Signature Inks are quite recent to the market, think of the interim between 1989 and today, as the fertile ground into which my present love of all things ink was seeded and grown.

The contents and packaging of my Inks are all nature friendly and the colors a genuine inventory of the Australian palette. Robert Oster Signature originates from one of the most famous wine producing regions of the world - the Coonawarra district of South Australia...an idyllic setting with great influence on the senses. There is my inspiration. It's a joy to share it with you."

We are authorized retailers for Robert Oster, so this bottle will come directly from the man himself.

Very good light purple

I bought this ink as soon as I saw what the color looks like. And, as Kim said in the last review, this should really be used with a broad nib!
It's sort of a light grey/lavender ink (imagine that combo, but with an almost imperceptible amount of grey). It is not opaque, it is lightly saturated, so bear that in mind. In my experience, the ink is on the dry side (it writes just fine, but I am considering adding some distilled water, since I prefer wetter inks), but obviously, my experience is limited to the single bottle I own.
Some similar inks, based on saturation:
Herbin Bouquet D'antan (pink) - dry, very light pink, very undersaturated.
Noodler's Polar Purple (violet) - extremely wet, purple, undersaturated.

Exquisite color

This may be the best color I’ve experienced in quite sometime. It’s especially spectacular when using a broad nib! I have no reserve in recommending this to my fountain pen peers
