It’s time to tackle some brown inks! Let’s get started with KWZ Cappuccino. I received a sample of this ink from a sample swap with a friend.

In large swabs the ink looks more grey than brown.

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

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: medium shading, no sheen, and no shimmer.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in every nib size, and some bleeding in the flex nib.

Noodler’s Walnut is a cooler and just a bit darker than Cappuccino.

Longer writing:

 I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River 68gsm. The ink had a nice wet flow.

Overall, it’s a nice ink-it has a wet flow, pretty color, some shading, and an average dry time. I really enjoyed this ink in the Pelikan M800.
