We are almost done with Taccia inks, just a few more to go. Today we are looking at Taccia Ao Blue. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Ao Blue is a beautiful medium blue with coppery red sheen.
In large swabs there is some beautiful coppery red sheen (it’s hard to photograph it just right).
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in the larger nib sizes and a little bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
Ao Blue is a bit brighter than Sailor Jentle Blue, but they are similar. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.
Overall, its pretty well behaved and has a really nice flow. I like it.
