I think I have said before, this ink is truly the colour of Sydney Harbour on a cold, grey, wintery day when going on the ferry from Circular Quay (Sydney) to Manly.
One of the things I truly love about the Blackstone inks is that their colours truly reflect the places they are named after.
It's been a while since I last visited Sydney, but I've been on the Manly ferry (and other ferries across Sydney Harbour) many times and I concur. This ink really reflects the water colour. It's a wonderful ink, lots of shading, very intense. A full page of densely scribbled text might be a bit overwhelming (I've slowly drifted more towards understated inks), but if you use dotpad grid paper and leave an empty space between each line, the result is stunning. It's very wet, though. A bit too wet, in fact (never thought I'd say that). I put it into one of my two Sailor pens instead of the usual Sailor ink that I use, and Sailor inks are wet. This Blackstone ink is much more wet and requires really good paper.
