Our fourth Colorverse ink this week is #3 of Spaceward Season 1, Saturn V. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending over samples for review.
Saturn V is a beautiful dusty blue.
In large swabs you can see the sheen. In some lighting it looks black, and in some it looks dark pink, which makes this ink interesting.
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
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and a little bit of bleeding.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Vibrant Blue on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I was impressed with the shading and sheen this ink has. The shading even showed up in the extra fine nib, which is rare. I love the color.
