Continuing on with the epic #inkmail I received from Japan the other day, I inked up Writing Lab – Vintage Denim.
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M805 Stresemann (F nib) which is fast becoming my favorite writer.
The sheen on this ink is just gorgeous. During regular writing it is a dark red, but in the blob it goes from dark red to green. Against the super dark blue it almost has an oil slick effect, which actually made a small comeback in the high fashion scene around a year ago. I’m not sure that this reminds me of denim, even of the vintage variety, but I absolutely love the color. The ink has a great flow, more than enough saturation, and even some nice shading. So far the Pen and Message/Writing Lab inks have been very much worthwhile! Can’t wait to try the rest of them!
