Let’s start off today with Taccia Uguisu Olive Green. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Uguisu Olive Green looks more army green than olive on the Col-o-ring swab.
In large swabs the color is more forest green, and shows some red 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 a tiny bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
Uguisu Olive Green is close to Sailor Waka-uguisu and Robert Oster Verde de Rio. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.
Overall, it’s pretty well behaved, but it does look different on every paper. On the Col-o-ring swab it looks more army green, more yellow green on Rhodia, and classic green on Tomoe River.
