The ink is smooth and wet. I didn't like it much in my wet Parker Duofold, but in a TWSBI Eco (B nib, cursive italic grind) it was very pleasant to write with.The amount of shading is high and immediately shows the sheen too, especially on Tomoe River paper. Just to give an idea of the amount of sheen, two pictures of the same text, under different angles. The sheen is already quite visible on the left image, but when turned, the text apparently changes from blue to red.
No feathering. The ink is wet and smooth. Drying is slow at 110 secs. Water ruins your writing immediately.
|Shimmer/sheen||Huge amount of red sheen|
|All in all this ink is a nice addition. The bottle is a true gem, the ink is definitely expensive, but manages to be different from other blues.|
|Four stars out of a possible five.|
