Feathering Test of 3 Brown Inks

Hi All,

I’ve been assembling my arsenal of inks that show little to no feathering on office-quality paper, and in this pursuit, I got to experimenting with brown colors that I had available at the time.

The three inks that I tried were the following:

  • Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Brown – Pelikan M200 Italic pen
  • J. Herbin Terre de Feu – Noodlers Konrad & Monteverde 1.1 nib
  • Sheaffer Skrip Brown – Noodler’s Konrad & Monteverde 1.1 nib

All three pens have more or less the same flow (two of them being identical)

I did my tests on two types of paper. One was the OfficeMax writing pad and the other was plain old copy paper.

Here are the results of my testing on OfficeMax Writing pad:
