I present to test the ink Graf von Faber-Castell Cobalt Blue with a deep shade of blue. The ink feels dry, but well it writes. It is strongly saturated and can dirty the plunger. Too bad also that as long dries up, because it's very successful color.

 

Manufacturer: Graf von Faber-Castell

Series, colour: Cobalt Blue

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)

 

Specifications:

Flow rate: good

Lubrication: good

Bleed through: unnoticeable

Shading: noticeable

Feathering: unnoticeable

Saturation: very good

I like the water resistance on this one. How would you say it compares to Iroshizuku Shin-kai?

My experience is that this one is much bluer and darker than Shin-Kai, and less shading.

Thanks for the review! I really like the 'blueness' of this dark ink - not blue/black but dark blue!

 

Gotta have it!!
