Rated 4 out of 5 by Kassandry from Great Blue Waterproof Ink This is a beautiful, well-flowing, professional blue ink. Not too dark, not too light, and very, very waterproof. I am planning on using this as my everyday blue ink, because it is a lovely blue ink, that stands up to water and coffee spills well. I have used this on basic Mead notebook paper with no bleedthrough, very little showthrough, and no feathering (though that may be because of my preference for needle sharp nibs). Dripping it with water shows little to no color loss, and rubbing it with a cotton swab shows only a little color spread, but bits of the paper come along with it. Moleskine paper has similar behavior to the Mead paper. It does requires a bit more diligence and care with the cleaning of the pen. It has slightly stained an extra-fine Platinum Preppy that I bought for ink testing, but nothing that didn't go away with an evening's soak in an ammonia/soap/water solution. I imagine I would need to rinse every few fills to make sure everything works well. I have been duly impressed with this sample of ink, and will look at purchasing a bottle of it to use regularly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Abner C Kemp from Feathering Lots of feathering even on Clairefontaine paper. Not impressed.
