Bayou Nightfall falls in-between colors-it has a bit of blue black, grey, teal mix. I think it’s closer to blue black than anything else.
In large swabs on Tomoe River paper the ink looks more grey.
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: Medium-some of the ink washed away but you might still be able to read what was written.
Feathering: Low-there was a little bit of feathering in the flex nib on Leuchtturm paper.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
I used a Kaweco Sport Serenity Blue with a fine nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I find the color really interesting. It’s a great addition to the New Orleans collection.
