I like this ink a lot. I prefer it in medium to bold nibs. Seems like it dries out too fast in my fine nibs.

I am using this ink routinely in a Franklin Christoph Piper and have not diluted it during its use. I like it very much as once dry it's not running or smudging on porous or glossy papers. I have also had numerous hard starts and have to dip it in water to get the nib wet and the ink flows well until a short period to dry out the nib.

I also find it changes colour is sorta dull if I shake the bottle and it's a nicer blue if I just fill it without shaking first. I suspect some aspect of the ink separates without agitation. I cringe at mixin inks but may add some purple or blue ink later to see if the blue can pop just a little more when it dries and still rely on its water resistance if someone happens to spill water on my paper.

I use this ink for baseball line up cards and thus far it holds up in the rain until the paper disintegrates in the worst of storms.

I would recommend this ink as an excellent ink for anyone with a budget and who wanted to have water resistance.

Great review thanks for posting.
