This ink would have to be one of my favourites in the Toucan range - though if I'm honest, I wasn't as excited on first glance. It wasn't till I saw another mini-review on this site that I decided to take a second look - and boy, am I glad I did. How is it different from the Turquoise? Hard to say - except that it's somehow 'bluer'. This ink really looks great in a wetter pen - like the Noodler's Ahab I used to write this review - but it's pretty good whatever pen you choose. Like the other inks in this range, it's dye-based and cleans out very well - though for that reason it's not very water resistant. You can buy a 2ml sample of this ink for AU$1.25 (don't ask me what you'll pay for shipping, though - it's normally a flat rate of $5!); for AU$5 you'll get a 60ml pouch, or it's AU$15 for 400 ml. When you consider a 30ml bottle of J.Herbin retails for around $18.95 plus postage, you're talking serious value for money. After 3 months trialling these inks in my pens, I have yet to see a down-side - other than the lack of waterproofness, which they share in common with most dye-based inks - and I'd have no hesitation suggesting you try them out for yourself - though at present these are only available for shipping to Australian and New Zealand addresses. There is another mini-review of this ink on FPN, and a few samples (I think in the threads in 'The Mall') - so I won't bother with the photo, just the scanned image.
