November is coming to a close, but I’m still using a lot of brown inks. Today’s Bungubox ink is Piano Mahogany. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Piano Mahogany is a dark brown with a heavy maroon undertone.
In large swabs the ink looks a lot more purple than it does in writing. There’s some bright green sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 15 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering, and some bleeding in the larger nib sizes.
Overall, the ink is pretty well behaved in most nib sizes, but there is some feathering and bleeding in really wet nibs. It dries pretty quickly too.
