Ink Snippet: Papier Plume Pecan

Papier Plume Pecan writing samples

Papier Plume Pecan. Okay, let me announce a total ink crush. Papier Plume Pecan arrived Saturday. The same day, I put it in a Pelikan Toledo with fine nib, and Holy Toledo! I’ve been writing with Papier Plume Pecan constantly since. It’s a perfect sepia color.

  1. Ha! I immediately thought of Cacao du Bresil, too! Cool to see that someone so much more knowledgeable than me saw it the same way 🙂 These are both lush!

  2. I got my 15 ml sample today. I think it is a great color. I loaded the pens up, but haven’t done extensive testing yet. It looks like I will probably be buying this ink once my sample gets low. I really like the color. I did try it on Rhodia dot, Tomoe River & Clairefontaine. It passed those with flying colors. Even if it isn’t great on low quality paper, I’ll probably get at least a 30ml bottle. I will know more after I have tested it further. I am so glad you decided to review Papier Plume inks!

  3. First, they totally nailed it with this color. Second, being from the South, this ink really does remind me of the shells on some varieties of pecans. I have spend many hours shelling pecans for all those wonderful holiday desserts and candies. It isn’t the holidays if I don’t have sore finger tips from shelling pounds and pound of pecans. 😁

    I have been meaning to sample a couple of their inks, but this one wasn’t on my radar before today. I will be adding it to the ever growing list of inks to sample.

  4. I like the color, it may be a little light for me though. Feathering though might be an issue. I don’t care for feathering, especially with a fine nib. I have a pecan tree in my yard. I’ve always loved pecans. This color is lovely in my opinion.

  5. Pecan is a wonderful color, but your observation that Papier Plume’s inks tend to feather applies to several inks in their line, and not just on cheap copy paper. I think they do better with narrower nibs.

    1. Thanks for the warning! I have six in total to preview — sounds like you’ve used a lot of these. Pecan’s feathering is within my tolerance range with the fine nib, luckily, because I have to have this ink. 🙂

      I wish more ink makers focused on that issue. I wonder if people like you and I may be in the minority in using fountain pens more regularly, and thus encountering a range of paper. It’s probably a chicken and egg situation.
