This week I’m excited to tackle the new Taccia inks! There are 13 colors that come in 40ml bottles. Let’s start off with Kuro Black. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Kuro Black is a nice basic black with some sheen.
In large swabs the ink is mostly black sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 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.
Kuro Black is similar to Sailor Jentle Black.
Overall, it’s a lovely black ink. It has high sheen, which helps it stand out from all of the other black inks.
