Review: Franklin-Christoph Dark Denim Writing Fluid @PiperFC

Scott at Franklin-Christoph sent me samples of the new Franklin-Christoph Writing Fluids - a.k.a fountain pen inks - to try out and review. I reviewed the Black Magic a little while ago, next up is the Dark Denim.

  • A very nice blue-black color.
  • Has good shading.
  • Dries pretty quickly on Rhodia.
  • Water resistant.

  • A little dry in broad nibs.

Franklin-Christoph's Dark Denim is a really nice, quite well-behaved blue-black fountain pen ink. I wasn't sure what I would encounter after using and experiencing the Black Magic ink, which isn't a bad ink, but it sure bleeds! Dark Denim is very nice, a little on the dry side, but it has nice saturation, nice shading, dries pretty quickly on Rhodia, and is water resistant. If you are in search of a blue-black, I do recommend this ink to you.

I received this sample free of charge from Franklin-Christoph to review and enjoy. My opinions are 100% my own and completely honest. I was not compensated monetarily to write this review.
