  1. TACCIA DAIDAI (ORANGE) Review of a sample of Taccia Daidai received from Vanness Pens. Taccia inks are "born in California", but manufactured in Japan. This is a very nice orange color - well balanced and strong - not yellowy-orange or reddish-orange but a strong orange-orange. The ink flows very nicely from the nib, and is lubricated in much the same way as Sailor inks. This ink has no sheen and moderate shading even on Tomoe River paper. It dries fairly quickly and has some water resistance. It does not bleed through or show through except on very cheap paper. Pros: Nice flow Moderately lubricating Minimal bleedthrough, showthrough, feathering Fast Drying Moderately saturated. Some water resistance A nice orange for even fine nibs Cons: Little shading or sheen Just orange (but that might be enough) Took just a bit longer to clean from my pens Price: In the US: $12 for 40 ml at Vanness Pens, Anderson Pens, PenChalet Overall: Of the four Taccia inks I have tried, this is my least favorite only because it does not have all the "bells and whistles" of the others (i.e. sheen, strong shading, etc.) I prefer my orange inks to shade, but this does not shade as much as Yu-Yake or Sapphron (a much lighter yellow-orange). But this is the most lubricating orange I have used. In terms of other orange inks I have tried, I do like this one more for the ink quality than for the brilliant color. If you are in the market for a nice quality orange ink, this is a good value.
