Our first 3 Oysters inks today is Blue from the Delicious collection. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Blue is just that-a medium blue.
In large swabs there is some dark pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 50 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in all nib sizes and a little bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
3 Oysters Blue is darker than Kon-peki, but just a little bit lighter than Yunnan Blue. Click here to see the 3 Oysters inks together.
Overall, I prefer Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-peki over 3 Oysters Blue since it’s so dry. It’s a pretty color, just doesn’t flow well.
