Upon looking up the price, I see that Noodler’s changed the name from Apache Sunset to Southwest Sunset. They are the same ink as far as I can see, though.

This is everyone’s favourite orange, it seems. Many claim it’s their favourite ink, period. I can see the appeal, because the shading is lovely but I have yet to ink it up in anything and don’t yet feel drawn to purchase it in a big bottle. But if I ever get really in to bright inks, this will be here for me.
