This is a very light blue. It's a pretty color, but when you're writing with it, it seems like it's coming out so pale. It does tend to dry a little darker.

 

It flows really well. And it has water resistance. Win.

 

It's hard to tell how light this ink seems when viewing the swatches online. I think this scan gives a good idea of how it is when it dries. If you use a broader nib or a really wet pen, this would probably be darker, judging from my smudges :) So perhaps I should try it in my stub nib and see how I feel. But since I tend to use finer points, this is probably just a little more pale than I would usually use.

I'd say your scan is pretty dang accurate to real life and I can't get myself to love this ink. The color is too muted. It's too bad because it behaves very well.

Interesting that we -- the users -- often find an ink out of our pen onto our paper much less promising than the companies' swabs. E.g. the written lines above, the judgement in Post #2 as well as elsewhere just don't look like what i see on the box.

Apparently too faded, subdued, watered down, unsaturated. Thanks for saving me the dough.

I agree. The color on the box looks awesome. I wish reality would have matched expectation.

It does indeed flow a lot darker from a larger nib or a wetter pen. I tried it from a Jinhao pen I had that flows really wet and has a wide nib. It came out a lot closer to the online swabs.

Okay, and thanks, I know exactly what you mean to say. I might try it out in a few different pens, at least with my 1.5 mm Lamy Joy and then take it from there.

Overall, it has nice performance.

I really like it; there's probably something wrong with me then. :wacko:

 

 

Nah, you're Abby Normal. (I too like it).

I found I really liked it a lot more with a wet medium or broad nib. My little fine nib just wasn't giving it enough space to shine.

I do agree that it works better with a wider and wetter nib; it works quite nicely in my Sheaffer 300 with M nib. I might try it with a fine stub or flex... all in good time.

No, I am not going to list my pens here.

The color on that box is stunning. I don't even like blue ink and I love that color. :yikes: Ah, if all advertising were true.

Indeed, the broader and wetter the better. And the color is pretty close to the box when you're writing wet and broad. I shall have to get some pics.

By the way I have also been trying to compare its fade resistance against some other blue inks, on Fuji-Xerox laser paper, one of the most common paper available in Australia (Reflex being the most common). After a month in the Australian summer sun, Jules Verne has lost a little of its chrominance, but the current French-made Parker Quink blue suffered a lot more. I am looking forward to Amberlea's long-term report!

Me too. Amber's fade tests are fantastic and have really made me rethink a lot of my ink choices.

I have a long post for you, but I've goofed up my image uploading.

 

Just know that I have a list of paper / ink fade tests.
