Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange Ink Review

Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange
This is the fourth in this batch of ink reviews, for Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange.

For a description of the bottle and box, please see the review of Diamine Crimson ink and for the Cult Pens variants please the review of Cult Pens Deep Dark Blue ink. In this case there were small labels on both the box and the bottle cap. The sole supplier is Cult Pens and the ink is low priced.

The test pen in this case was a yellow Pilot Prera with a medium nib.

Water resistance was minimal again, only very faint lines were left under running water and lines were obliterated by water drops. Cleaning was easy and the drying time was around 45 seconds.

The scan shows the attractive deep brownish-orange colour which really pops off the page. The slight restriction in the flow was really only noticeable in comparison to the other inks in this series.

Decent results on this paper despite the feathering.

Perhaps the slightly drier flow contributed to the patchy overage, but the results were still acceptable.

This shows the range of shading possible although the darker shading is only likely to be achieved with a wet pen. No sheen is visible in this case.

Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange – Conclusion

The brightest colour in this series is also possibly the most attractive of all and the most suitable for markup. Although all the Deep Dark inks are meant to be appropriate for business use this is the least sober of all the inks so may not suit note-taking in a business setting. I’ll leave the reader to be the best judge of that.
