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 6 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...
