We are moving our way through the Platinum Classic inks this week, and Khaki Black is up next. The ink is available in 60ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review!
Khaki Black is a medium, warm tone brown.
In large swabs the ink shows a lot of shading.
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, since this ink is an iron gall I expected a lot more water resistance than I got.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, and a tiny bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
Overall, it behaved very similar to Platinum Sepia Black. Since this ink has a dry flow, it performs best in pens with a wetter flow. I didn’t notice much color change with this ink as I did with some of the other Platinum Classic inks. I was expecting a lot more water resistance than I got, this one had very low water resistance.
