I have stocked up lot of inks, especially inks like Chelpark, Camlin, Bril and Sulekha. All these are region specific like Chelpark is easily available in North India and Bril’s availability is limited to Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai, and Sulekha only available in Kolkatta that too few colors against 11 colors listed on webpage and lastly Camlin is available pan India.
The review is about the Bril Royal Blue Ink, which happens to be my first ink review.
Also I would like to add that i got the inks as a gift from one of my friend and fountain pen enthusiast, Rakshit Pai.
Bril inks are one of the most used and admired inks in India. Bril has been in existence since 1964 and are based out of Bangalore.
Bril Royal Blue is one of the most used inks in India after Camlin Blue and it is priced at Rs. 15 (US $ 0.25).

I like the shade of blue this Bril offers. Also it is dirt cheap and yes it is somewhat not washed out by water. It definitely gives many expensive inks run for its money.
To add to all this i have been using this ink in lot of my expensive pens and never faced any problem even in demonstrators leaving no stain marks.
MUST BUY even if the price is not considered.
