Arguably, one of the most interesting new ink brands is South-Korean Wearingeul. With their series of ink, based on literary themes, they are certainly making a name for themselves. Recently, I bought a few of their inks and tested them.
The first one is Path, from The Color of Literature Project No. 4. A delightful olive green ink, in a beautiful, simple glass bottle. Perfect for personal notes and correspondence. The shimmer makes it less suitable for office in my opinion.When using at least a medium nib, the color and shading come out best.
I have tried the ink on both Tomoe River and Clairefontaine (Triomphe) paper. Stephen King quotes.
The ink behaved flawlessly, with a wonderful flow.
|Tomoe River 52g|
Drying time is a bit slow, 40 seconds on the Clairefontaine and roughly a minute on the Tomoe River.
The full characteristics:
|Shading||moderate to high|
|Lubrication||great, very smooth|
All in all, Path is a wonderful and surprising ink, a great addition to my collection. I have kept a pen filled with it since the moment I bought it.
Five stars, no doubt!
