Bungubox has recently released a series of limited edition inks named after the Zodiac. Although they’re intended for sale in Japan, we’ve been lucky enough to get some brought over. Taurus is a fresh, vivid green that writes beautifully. The Zodiac inks come in a 20ml glass rectangle bottle in a themed box. This review was done with a Pilot Explorer F, Lamy Safari B and on Rhodia blank No.18 paper.

Taurus is fairly saturated and has a similar appearance in both a fine and broad nib. At its lightest, the ink is a bright emerald green. From there, it shades to a somewhat traditional shamrock green. It finishes as a dark basil hue. I was hoping for some red sheen with this ink, but alas it is matte on Rhodia paper.

This is a Bungubox ink, so you already know this part about the properties will be glowing praise. In keeping with that, Taurus had good flow with no feathering or bleedthrough on Rhodia paper. Dry times were good at 20-30 seconds with moderate shading. The ink didn’t have any water resistance, but clean up was very easy.

What’s not to like about this ink? Its a fresh vibrant green that’ll be sure to get you in a cheerful mood. These inks won’t be around for much longer, so I think I’ll have to pick up a bottle of this one.

As with any ink review, the pen, paper, and person doing the writing will influence the way the ink looks. Due to their small bottle size and limited availability, Bungubox Zodiac inks will only be available in bottles.

Ink it Up!
