It’s time for the final Platinum Classic ink, Forest Black. The ink is available in 60ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review!
Forest Black is an unsaturated medium green.
In large swabs the ink turns very dark when concentrated, almost black.
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: Medium
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, but no bleeding. The feathering wasn’t really noticeable until the broad nib, so I would be ok with using this ink on junk paper as long as it’s in a medium nib or smaller.
Overall, the ink has a dry flow and high shading. It performed pretty well on copy paper, and even had a little bit of water resistance.
