It's reader request week! Today's ink request is Colorverse #13 Quasar from Season 2 Astrophysics. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Quasar is a dark blue with a hint of purple in it.
In large swabs there is some reddish-coppery sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering on Leuchtturm paper.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in every nib size so it's not an ink I would recommend for cheap paper.
Overall, I like this ink, but it is pretty similar to Monteverde Ocean Noir (which is better behaved, and much cheaper).
