    I believe so. If not there's a shop here in town with about 20 bottles that I could pick up. ^_^

    My understanding is the Kodak version is gone or going away. I recently got some "Legacy" stuff from Freestyle which is purportedly equivalent , but haven't had occasion to try it yet.

    Kodak Brown Toner...

    I've heard that the Kodak stuff has already GONE away and anything left is old stock.

    Houston Camera Exchange still has a few bottles on the shelf, which is where I got mine. I'll probably pick up three or four more next time I'm there.

    That's bottle instructions and you can certainly do that. There was a pretty long thread here about using the stuff where we discussed it. I use 1/8th oz per quart of water but I often want a subtle tone.

    Last I looked Kodak was available but you had to buy a gallon for something like $300. That may be gone too, I don't know, but I use the Legacy Pro and it works fine. I believe there are other equivalents too.

    Another safer alternative is to use warmtone paper in a warmtone developer like Ilford Warmtone. It won't get you as profound a brown as brown toner, but you don't have to work with it under a fume hood either.

    Chris, had I known you were interested we could have toned as well. I have a few bottles here.

    I tried just that and it's nowhere near as toned looking as I had hoped. Also, I couldn't seem to get a true black either. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but it was fresh paper and fresh chemistry.

    The brown toner felt a lot more controllable and I was able to get the midtones/highlights just ride and retained true black through and through.

    Kodak Brown Toner...

    I use reasonable precautions by toning in the open part of my basement with a door open not in my much smaller darkroom but certainly not a fume hood. I ain't dead yet. Be mindful but there's no reason to be afraid of it, just use reasonable care.

    I print on Ilford MGWT FB developed in Ilford WT developer when I intend a warm image and then tone. It certainly isn't even similar without toning.

    As far as I know, stuff FreeStyle sells under their house brand is a copy of Kodak Brown Toner. I do all my toning in garage with door open. Not only do I not need to worry about the fume but also if I spill it, I can just hose it down....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
