I keep telling myself that I wouldn't have enough use for this ink to justify the purchase, but I still want it. Your photo didn't help my resistance.

Sigh...added to the 'inks to buy' list.

Thanks for posting this. Gorgeous. It's really cool to see how the color somehow feels different in Chinese -- although I don't read Chinese :( -- I just mean visually. I have really been enjoying this ink a lot.

I can`t read chinese, but I like the way that letters / words look. Anyway I can`t imagine using this regularly, too light for me.

I agree, it was too light for me also. I ended up mixing in some MontBlanc blue and it gave the color some depth. It is not a color I use routinely at all, but in case I want to fill a fountain pen and write a pen pal, I think it will be fine. It still has its color, it just has a little something more to give it a kind of more solid presence.
