from my screen it looks more greyish with a hint of blue, and a lot less saturated than most dark blue inks.  this i like.

A year ago I wanted another bottle of Cobalt Blue (wanted, not needed), it was not available locally but this ink was... Despite I really dislike blue-black inks in general (prefer dark blue) I like this ink. At first I did not like it at all. Later I discovered this ink needs a wet and quite smooth nib, then it looks very blue, shades lovely and the flow and perfomance in general is great (no spreading, no bleeding, dries reasonably quickly, is quite water resistant, rather a lot fade resistant and overall feels smooth). I have had a squeaky nib (some prefer "singing") in a very expensive pen that sounded and felt weird even with Aurora Blue ink and several other famous perfomers, I didn't think it would work with GvFC Midnight since it is not a very wet ink (and not wet inks usually make these things even worse) but it works perfectly - the nib is quiet, glides perfectly. Excellent.
