INK SAMPLE - Aurora Blue is rated 4.3846 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Sketching I use a blend of Aurora Blue and Aurora Black (Slightly diluted) in a Noodler's Ahab for sketching, and it is my DREAM combination. It is the most water soluble ink in existence, which makes it perfect for ink and wash, and the blue has undertones of purple, which makes a gorgeous blue-black when they are blended. (I go to great lengths to use exactly the materials I want). The shading is excellent as well. Since I have tried out this combo, it has barely left my hand, but anyone looking for a speck of water resistance will be disappointed. It's wonderful for my purposes, but will not be perfect for all; just keep that in mind and you will be fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't work well on the paper I've tried. I've seen plenty of enthusiasm for this ink, so I can only assume it's really good on the paper other people use. But it's no good on any of the paper I have used recently. Sure, it's the paper's fault, but Noodler's Black works well on them, so it can be done. I didn't really know what feathering was until I used this ink! Aurora Blue does have qualities I like. The colour is really nice -- that's preference, of course, but objectively, it expresses its colour well -- and when it dries it retains nearly all of its colour rather than appearing washed out. This 2-star review is for its performance on common paper. Please don't take it as a bad review if you know the qualities of the paper you are using. I hope to get great satisfaction from this ink one day when I buy some better paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have the same bottle, but older label At first I hated this ink, however I now blame winter on the flow problems I had. Once spring came, I found this ink to flow very well. The biggest fault in my mind is the color itself - a bit dull to me. It also has ZERO water resistance - the ink up and runs off the page instantly, unlike Noodler's Eel which although not waterproof, will at least hang on to the paper for a while, has great flow and gets you double the ink for the same price. Although I personally don't care for this ink, the excellent flow made a non-fountain pen user in my house convert. So that in itself deserves some credit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit purplish, but a nice flowing blue ink I like using think with broader nibs because the shading is more apparent. Finer nibs get the benefit of it's wetness. One thing is the drying time...pretty long on papers like Clairefontaine. There are other blue inks that have better value, but this is still a nice ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day in, day out, the best blue ink This is the ink I would unhesitatingly choose if I could only have one ink (perish the thought). Great darkish blue moderately saturated color, good shading, no feathering, good flow in most pens. Not the most exciting ink, but the best ink. Buy this today!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I found Aurora Blue pretty good in fact it is now my second choice for ink for my Vac 700. I found two problems with this ink- 1. It particularly bleak through the paper. 2. It is not waterproof. But overall rating will be Goood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My desert island ink If I could only have one ink, I would choose this. It is conservative enough for office use, with a slight vividness, a hint of purple in the right light, to make it stand out. And it is also trouble-free in every pen I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant color and very free flowing I liked the shade of blue. It is much vibrant than the inks I've used before, though, the ink bottles are a bit on the pricier side.
