A fairly new brand on the market, Robert Oster and his team hand-make these beautiful inks in their workshop. The inks are all nature-friendly and inspired by the landscape - an inventory of the Australian pallette. They hail from Naracoorte in the Coonawarra district of South Australia, one of the most famous wine-producing regions in the world. The inks have had rave write-ups with reviewers finding these inks to be very wet and nicely saturated with a good sheen. Suitable for all fountain pens.

Total 7 question(s)
Is there any chance that you'll one day offer ink samples for purchase? There are currently only two online retailers in the UK who do this, so I know it would be appreciated ;) (I actually felt guilty buying ink elsewhere!)
Bureau replies: we'll have a think about samples - for now you can come and visit the store and try all of our inks :)
When can we expect new availability of Fire and Ice?
Bureau replies: we areexpecting more ink in couple of weeks...
should I be shaking this ink up - just got Fire and Ice in the post and filled my kaweco adapter with it, but so far just ice and no fire ....
Bureau replies: the sheen is a combination of three - pen, ink and paper. It will show better in wet writers and on coated paper - Tomoe River (Taroko), Rhodia, Clairefontaine. I'm sorry it's not showing for you - try it in a different pen and on a different paper :)
How does the Aus Sky compare with, say, Pelikan turquoise? [ordinary, not Edel] I wouldn't want it if it is lighter than the Pelikan. The R.O. Turquoise looks too greenish and a bit muddy in your sample. Basically, I want the ink that most closely matched Pelikan or Sheaffer turquoise. Please advise. Thanks
Bureau replies: Robert Oster Australian Sky is brighter and lighter turquoise - compared to Pelikan's 4001. Have a look at Lamy's Turquoise or Robert Oster Bondi Blue :)
Hi. Any update on Fire & Ice availability?
Bureau replies: we have more Robert Oster coming in around mid-April...
Update: Robert Oster Fire and Ice ink is back in stock now should you still want one.
Will you be stocking Gold Antigua?
Bureau replies: we are always looking to expand the ink range, so maybe one day Gold Antiqua will be part of our line-up :) If you are looking for warm amber colour, then I'd recommend KWZ Honey as an alternative...
Hi there, will you be stocking the new River of Fire shade?
We will do but there is a long lead time on orders from Robert Oster so it may be a while. Sorry about that. We will announce any new products in our newsletter which also gets you 10% off.
