Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Franklin-Christoph Honeycomb

I hope the list puts you at the top quickly.

Ink was provided for review by Franklin-Christoph.


It's time for another Franklin-Christoph ink! This one was introduced at the Ohio Pen Show back in November, and I found out about it a little bit after that. In the interest of full disclosure, my wife Audrey works at F-C. I try not to let that affect my reviews, so what you see is what you get.

So, how's this ink? It's pretty darn cool. I like brown inks a lot, and that's especially true if the brown is a little odd. As you'll see below, I used this in two very different nibs, and I got some very different results. The Franklin-Christoph Flex nib (this one is a "fine") is a wet nib, and so you get a darker caramel color on the page. The Aurora Ipsilon (here and here) has a comparatively dry nib, and so you get more of the light honey color on the page. You've got options with this one.

If you're looking for comparisons to this ink, then you'll have to scroll down to the end. That's where I'm keeping them these days. Also, there are a lot of them. Like I said, I like brown inks.

You get some bleeding from the flex nib on this paper, but tht's to be expected when you use a wet nib on a thoroughly average paper.

Yeah, not a lot of water resistance, but you can still make out the words and lines. So...could be worse!
