Really good review! I like the color it just seems like the ink is missing some... character. Its unexciting to me for some reason.

I felt the same way when I tried this ink the first time. I stopped using it, but I returned to it lately, realizing that it was a good answer for an easy-to-clean, high-contrast ink for use extra fine and dry-writing pens. It's a very similar color to Montblanc Royal Blue but a lot more saturated (and more pH neutral, if that's anything to care about). I just picked up a backup bottle from Nathan Tardif at the Boston Pen Show (and also a bottle of Qin Shi Huang, which would qualify for a "And now for something completely different..." lead-in).

I know my id is "mhosea", but you can call me Mike. It's an old Unix thing.

Jokob, thank you for a great review. I love this ink, but my goodness it behaves like a complete diva! The dry time is crazy, but worth the wait. Yes this is my most diva ink and get pandered to way too much! :lticaptd:

Hmm... you seem to have gotten a much prettier shade of LCR ... I recall the color being boring, but now I don't actually remember.... hmm....

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Thanks, I'm glad you liked my review! ^^ It's definitely worth a sample if the deep, regal color interests you, like it did me.

Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you liked my review. ^^

 

Jakob, thank you for a great review. I love this ink, but my goodness it behaves like a complete diva! The dry time is crazy, but worth the wait. Yes this is my most diva ink and get pandered to way too much! :lticaptd:

 

You're very welcome! ^^ I haven't had as much trouble, but I haven't written with it much, mostly a little drawing and playing with it. I think longer dry times are inherent to inks that shade; if an ink dries too quickly, the pigment has no chance to flow back along the line and create shading.

Are you using it in a dry nib? In that case, it wouldn't be nearly as striking.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
