This week I’m excited to tackle the new Taccia inks! Let’s take a look at Aoguro Blue-Black. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Aoguro is a nice classic Blue-Black.
In large swabs the ink shows some coppery-red sheen.
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
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in the larger nib sizes and bleeding in the flex nib.
Taccia Aoguro Blue-Black is similar to Sailor Jentle Blue Black. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.
Overall, I find it similar to Sailor Jentle Blue Black, but it’s well-behaved, a nice color, and pretty affordable too.
