http://www.fountainp...001-royal-blue/ here's a very comprehensive review I think you will enjoy! Also includes comparisons with similar colored inks and other opinions.

It's a wonderful ink with a nice color. It's easy washable and erasable and so it became the standard school ink over here. It can fade over time (especially when exposed to UV/sunlight), but has really good writing characteristics.

I can't remember a time where I didn't have it in the house (and most of of the time a pen was inked with it); I have used it so excessively that I got bored of it a little bit...


Greetings,
Michael

You are very welcome.. I personally don't use this ink because I don't like Royal Blue inks in general (the color, it's too 'standard' per se), but I'm really glad you enjoy it! And your writing is very neat and personal, never forget, beauty is in the eye of the beholder ;)

There are dozens of "favourite" blues, not to mention "Royal Blues" -- see 2 or 3 other threads available today -- but the one I admire the most is MBs. Even if it is somewhat more expensive. It is also less dry than Pelikan's.
