Continuing on with Colorverse week, today's ink is Colorverse #2 Proxima B. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending over samples for review.
Proxima B is a pretty dark blue.
In large swabs you can see a little bit of black 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 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved well.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Birmingham Old Glory Blue, Colorverse Proxima B, and Sailor Yonaga. Click here to see the Colorverse inks together.
I used a medium Pelikan M805 Stresemann on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, it's a pretty well behaved ink. It has a little bit of shading and sheen, which is nice.
