This is one of my all time favorite blue, and I always have several pens filled with it. I think I definitely love it more now than when I wrote the review, which was over a year ago. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/673/CkHYfi.jpg I do have to note, of the three bottles I have, two of them are exactly the same, but the third has a major violet shift, which I feel is even out of Nathan's regular range of making every bottle unique. It's still an awesome ink, just more violet than the other two bottles.
Living a few hours from NYC I am very fortunate to be able to personally shop at Fountain Pen Hospital. Sadly a city of 8 million can only support one fountain pen store. Well, perhaps my pocketbook is happier that way. They do have some custom Noodler's inks, one of which is this one: Henry Hudson Blue, an eternal security ink. I'm not sure what that means, but this ink is totally waterproof. It may also be "proof" to a lot of other things as well. It's also a very nice color, not totally saturated, but slightly greyed blue, but not in a bad way. It's just not as bright on the page as say Aurora Blue, J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir. It's a very professional looking ink. I like it quite a bit. The papers used were MvL=Mohawk via Linen, Hij=Hammermill 28lb inkjet, TR=Tomoe River. There is another review on the forum that's very good and shows this ink as well. If you're interested in getting this ink you might want to check it out. The ink in my bottle doesn't seem to lean as far towards the red as that review. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/288711-noodlers-henry-hudson-bluea-handwritten-review/?p=3329914 Not sure how well I've captured the color. Seems a little more saturated in the images. There is a very slight wash of red from the ink when placed under a running faucet. But the main body of the ink is totally permanent.
