Next let’s take a look at Taccia Murasaki Purple. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Murasaki Purple is a beautiful medium purple. This color actually reminds me of Barney. It’s Barney purple.
In large swabs there is some pretty shading and just a little bit of bright green sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in the larger nib sizes and a little bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
Murasaki Purple is closest to Monteverde Amethyst. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.
Overall, it’s well behaved at an affordable price, but I can’t help thinking of Barney every time I see it. It’s a lovely purple ink.
