Every time Robert Oster releases a new ink, I immediately put it on my wish list. I’ll admit I have a weakness for Almond Roca; every year hubby gets me some for Christmas, and Robert Oster Toffee reminds me of the toffee center. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.
Toffee is just that-a medium toffee brown, so the name is fitting.
In large swabs the ink appears almost black, but doesn’t actually sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 50 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in half of the nib sizes.
I used a Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow, maybe just a touch dry.
Overall, it’s another nice ink from Robert Oster. I like the color and it has some pretty shading but the dry time is a bit long at 50 seconds.
