Pens and Ink: Visconti honey almond and SBRE Brown Ink

One of the things I like is to find a perfect fountain pen and ink match (and with the occasional nail polish match) and I thought it would be fun to add this segment to my blog. Starting off with a very special combination.
The Visconti Opera Club Honey Almond with SBRE brown ink.

A special ink deserves a special pen. I quite like this combo :) #fountainpenink #fountainpen #sbrebrownink #sbrebrown #visconti #operaclub #honeyalmond #fpgeeks #fountainpennetwork #FPN #writinginstruments 

This is a special ink, is launched by SBRE Brown just recently and is available at La Curonne du Comte at their webstore and also at the Tilburg Penshow this saturday. I was lucky enough to be one of the few who got to test this ink at an earlier stage. Seeing that Stephen Brown has a love for Visconti's, I thought this pairing would be quite fitting.

A closer look. I really like this brown. #sbrebrownink #sbrebrown #fountainpenink #fpgeeks #fountainpennetwork #FPN #visconti #operaclub #honeyalmond
It's a nice rich medium brown with red tones. Has some great shading. 
Not too wet but flows really well in this juicy 14k gold Visconti nib (F).

A page from my gratitude/mindful meditation journal where you can see the flow and shading of this ink pretty well. The older gold nibs from Visconti write just so well and it's a shame they discontinued them (also this older opera model is no longer easily available either, it was another lucky find).

Very excited to try this! Cool bottle and labeling :) #sbrebrownink #sbrebrown #fountainpenink #fpgeeks #newink #fountainpennetwork #FPN

The ink is also a limited edition! Only 300 bottles are made so if you want one, grab one while you can at La Couronne du Comte! I am definitely enjoying this ink and pen combo :)
