Ink Review #153: Robert Oster Peppermint


Robert Oster Peppermint has been on my wish list for a while. I was provided a sample recently by Vanness Pens, and I'm excited to test it out.


The color...

Peppermint is a medium green with dark pink sheen.


Dry time: 40 seconds

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: Low-only in the flex nib and swab on TR.

Other properties: Medium shading and medium pink sheen

On Step Forward 21 lb copy paper, the ink was really well behaved-no problems there.

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Robert Oster River of Fire, Robert Oster Peppermint, and Robert Oster Green at Night. Click here to see the Robert Oster inks together. River of Fire is darker than Peppermint, but has a similar sheen, and Green at Night is darker, but has a silver sheen.


Longer writing:

I used a Pelikan m805 broad nib on Tomoe River paper. I didn't have any issues with the ink. It had an average to slightly wet flow depending on the pen.

Overall, I really like the color-it's a great green with some nice shading and sheen. I need a full bottle of this one because I really like it.
