An all around blue ink with a bit of pizazz! Why use a dull faded blue when your writing can stand out?
This ink is wonderful! It is a very vibrant blue and works well in my Pilot metropolitan pen. The best thing about it is that I can use regular highlighters with this pen and the ink does not smear or smears very little. I have a fine point pen so this may play a part in the smear resistantance, but it does smear MUCH less than my Cross brand ink did.
Lovely ink for my fountain pen. Nice color and flow. I like that it is the oldest ink manufacturer in world.
