Franklin-Christoph Honeycomb is somewhere between a yellow and a brown, it’s the color I think of when I think of honey. I got a sample of this ink from a sample swap with a friend.
Honeycomb is a true “honey” color.
In large swabs the ink looks more brown, and you can see the little bit of green undertone.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Low
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a bit of bleeding and feathering in the flex nib but it did okay in the other nib sizes.
I used a Pelikan M605 White Transparent with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink has an average flow.
Overall, I love the color of this ink. It’s a pretty honey gold, with plenty of interesting shading. I’m adding a full bottle to my wish list.
