A newbie's option on this ink:
For my first foray into using a fountain pen converter I chose this ink as I felt it would be functional for work and yet different enough in shade that I would have some fun with it as well. I basically did not want to buy a fuchsia pink color that would only be suitable in specific circumstances.
I have not been disappointed with this ink at all. It is my initial run through with ink however, so I am not sure if that is just a newbie's opinion.
This shade is slightly different than the eyedropper swatch available. I thought that the swatch showed a bit of shading and that the ink was a bit more blue. There is almost no shading and the color is what I am thinking is a grey-blue, perhaps even gunmetal blue.
I do really like it and I am glad I chose this shade for my first go around! I am having a lot of fun with it so far.

No complaints; it's a nice addition to my growing fountain pen and ink collection. Subtle shading and a nice kind of night sky color, although that depends on the width of the nib used. It's a lighter blue-black in my finer nibs, but with my broad, it lays down a nice, saturated wet line. Not disappointed! I use it for taking notes in school, to-do lists, etc. It's a very nice all-around ink, appropriate in any setting, whether academic, business, or personal. But beware: it does tend to feather on cheaper papers, especially with broader nibs. Nor is it very waterproof, but because of that, it's fairly easy to clean out of your pens and you don't have to worry about it clogging up the pen's feed.
Please note that the swatch shown here is quite different from the true color of the ink. I suggest looking up multiple reviews elsewhere on the internet to gain a better understanding of how the ink looks in different types of nibs and lighting.
