It's the last day of reader request week! Today's reader request is Colorverse #18 Dark Energy from Season 2 Astrophysics. This ink comes in a box set with both a 65ml bottle and a 15ml bottle of the same ink. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Dark Energy is somewhere between red and brown.
In large swabs there is a little bit of dark brown 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: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
Overall, it has a nice pop of sheen in the larger nib sizes, and flows well. Colorverse does seem to have more browns inks than any other color.
