Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats is from the Freshly Squeezed Collection.

The ink looks like a minty green to me. It is a lovely colour with shading and no sheen. However, in writing, I find that it often lays down too light a line and the high contrast of the shading means I have to put more effort in reading. Flow-wise, it is on the dry side. This ink would probably do better in the wetter nibs.

Taccia Indigo Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Indigo Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a dark blue with a wet flow, shading and sheen. The sheen is easily visible in normal writing when it catches the light at the right angle. However, I don’t see any sheen on Leuchtturm1917 paper. There is also a little feathering and some bleedthrough.

Rings of colour residue

Cleaning a pen filled with this ink is more troublesome. It leaves faint rings of colour residue that can be remove with a gentle scrubbing with a cotton bud. This may a deal-breaker for some.

I really like this shade of blue and like it enough to put up with the more involved cleaning process. This is a keeper for me.

Birmingham Pen Company Leuchtturm1917

Birmingham Boysenberry on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Birmingham Pen Company is a small family-run business that makes fountain pens and fountain pen inks. While the company started with making fountain pens, it seemed their focus is now on inks.

Boysenberry is from the Swift Formula collection where the inks were designed to be wetter than average and performs well in a wide variety of fountain pens. This ink is a maroon with shading and no sheen.

The ink has a very wet flow. Due to the wetness of the ink, it will perform well on some papers and worse on others. I think the ink will be more suitable in the finer nibs. On Leuchtturm1917 paper, there is hardly any shading and no sheen. I would avoid this ink and paper combination because there is a lot of feathering and bleedthrough.

Taccia Grey Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Grey Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a pale blue-grey with an average flow and some shading. I feel this is pretty accurate to the colour that was seen on some types of jeans. This ink shows up better on Leuchtturm1917 paper but I still find it too light to read comfortably in less than ideal light conditions. It would probably do best in a wet or broad nib.

Taccia Classic Blue Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Dark Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is an unsaturated mid-range blue with beautiful shading. There is no feathering but there is some bleedthrough on Leuchtturm1917 paper. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

Taccia Black Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Black Jeans ink from the collection.

This is a black ink which shades from dark grey to black. I do like my black inks to be dark and black. I tried to see if there was sheen in the writing, like the other inks in the Jeans collection. However, the ink was so dark that it was hard to tell whether there was any sheen.

Taccia Navy Blue Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Navy Blue Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a medium shade of blue with a slight teal undertone. The ink has a wet flow and I enjoy writing with it. I think this is a lovely shade of blue that really resembles the colour of blue denim. On Leuchtturm1917 paper, there is shading, no sheen and no feathering. There is tiny spots where the ink bleedthrough, mainly on the dots above the “i” and at the end of the stroke where the ink pooled.

Taccia Light Washed Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Light Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a light, unsaturated blue with shading and no sheen. This is the second lightest ink in the Taccia Jeans ink series. It is readable but not a shade of blue that I like for writing. There is a bit of feathering and bleedthrough on Leuchtturm paper.

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser is a lovely pink colour that does resembles the colour of pink erasers. It has shading and no sheen. I don’t like the dry flow of the ink which can cause the pen to feel scratchy on certain papers.

Taccia Dark Washed Jeans on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Dark Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a dark blue / blue-black colour with shading and displays a noticeable red sheen on some papers. There is shading and a tiny bit of sheen on Leuchtturm paper, but it is difficult to see the sheen. The ink has a wet flow.

The ink takes a little more effort to clean as it leaves a bit of colour residue behind. I was not able to flush it away with water and had to use a cotton bud to gently scrub it away.

Rings of colour residue left behind in the pen body

This ink colour makes me think of a bruise. But not just an ordinary bruise, but a magnificent one ranging from deep purple to a blue so dark that it looked almost black. Because of its sheening properties, I think the ink will look good in a wet nib.
