I have one more PenBBS ink to try this week-137 Wisteria Sinensis. This sample was provided to me by Vanness Pens, the only retailer to carry PenBBS in the United States as far as I know.
Wisteria is kind of a light magenta, not quite pink, but a very light purple.
You can see the tiniest little bit of sheen on the edges, it's very faint.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Please ignore the torn edge-tore it by accident.
Show through: Low-medium
On 32 pound copy paper there is just a little bit of feathering in the broad and flex nib.
Depending on the lighting, the ink can look a bit more purple or a bit more pink.
I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point on Tomoe River paper. In the beginning, after I had freshly filled the pen, the ink flowed fine, but as I kept writing the ink seemed to be a bit drier than average.
Overall, the ink is a bit too light in writing, and a bit too dry for me. It's not a bad color, just not the most practical for everyday use.
