We are continuing on with reader request week, so today's ink is Robert Oster Torquay. I purchased my samples of ink from Goulet Pens.
Torquay is a light blue with shading.
There is a little bit of pink sheen around the edges. Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 25 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. There weren't any flow issues.
Overall, it's pretty well behaved and is a pretty color. In the smaller nibs it looks a little bit more green, but in the flex nib looks more straight blue. Give it a try, you might love it.
