Our next 3 Oysters ink this week is Red Wine from the Delicious collection. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Red Wine is a dark but rather unsaturated maroonish-burgundy.
In large swabs you can see some shading but no sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Medium
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in all nib sizes and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Red Wine is closest to Kobe Bordeaux. Click here to see the 3 Oysters inks together.
Overall, this ink had some flow issues from being so dry. I’m just not crazy about it.
