Rated 3 out of 5 by Daria from I want to love this ink...really I do I think I'm in a dysfunctional, co-dependent relationship with this ink. I know it's not right for me, but I keep trying to make our relationship work. PROS: 1. The color is gorgeous. The perfect turquoise, not leaning to aqua as so many do. 2. Well behaved in every pen. 3. The permanence. This is true waterproof ink worthy of signing legal documents. CONS: 1. The bleed is out of control. I don't have the same problem with the DeAtramentis Document Ink - Fuchsia, but the turquoise spreads even when using the finest of Japanese nibs. 2. It's a bit on the pricy side. If it delivered in terms of the flow, I wouldn't quibble at the price. But for this amount of spread...sigh. The value just isn't there when I look at the results. Thank goodness I got a sample...I think this relationship isn't going to be long term, and I will be crying and regretting "the one that didn't quite work out" for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JFred SLowvehicle from The Color of the New Mexico Sky This ink is, simply, gorgeous. Bright enough to whimsically stand out; dark enough to be taken seriously. I habitually color-code my own note-taking, and this blue is restful enough for primary text while still providing good contrast with the other De Atramentis Document colors. On good paper (I use Circa and Arc white), with a 1.1 stub nib, this ink is smooth and wet, with just a hint of shading, very minimal feathering, and no bleed-through. I do not hesitate to recommend this as a daily "go-to" ink.
