The color:

Uguisu Olive Green looks more army green than olive on the Col-o-ring swab.

Swabs:

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

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: low shading, low sheen, and no shimmer.

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.

Longer writing:

 I used a broad Kaweco Al-sport Rose Gold on Tomoe River 68gsm. The ink had a wet flow.

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.
