Taccia Classic Blue Jeans on Yamamoto Ro-Biki

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 a little shading and no sheen. I didn’t notice any feathering or bleedthrough on New Chiffon Cream paper. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

Taccia Indigo Jeans on Yamamoto Ro-Biki

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. On New Chiffon Cream paper, there is shading and very little sheen. There is no feathering and a little bleedthrough.

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.

Taccia Grey Jeans on Yamamoto Ro-Biki

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. I found the writing too light to read comfortably in less than ideal light conditions. It would probably do best in a wet or broad nib.

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats on Yamamoto Ro-Biki

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.
