Where do I start on this ink? Well, it is just about as blue as blue gets, and I really like that (even though I am not much of a blue ink fan!). It behaves very well in my experience, with great flow, about medium wetness, and it isn\'t very hard on pens in my experience. Another great thing you will find about this ink, is its water resistance. I tried to wash it off a Rhodia page, but it held up right along with an Iron Gall ink and a \"Bulletproof\" ink, actually retaining more of its colour than the Noodler\'s \"Bulletproof\" ink! Then we get to the bottle.. It has a huge capacity (70ml), and the \"ink reservoir\" system is a wonderful innovation by Pilot to allow you to suck up every last drop of this ink. Even for the $ I believe this ink is a great value!

I e-mailed JetPens and requested that they suggest a true blue ink. I did not want any green, red or black shading. They suggested this ink from Pilot. I bought the blue and the black. They are indeed true colors and work well in any pen I use them in.
I like the design of the bottles so well, that I keep them on my desk.
My only complaint is that the plastic well inside catches on some of my pens and starts to come out of the bottle when I remove the pen.

This is my favorite blue ink. It flows well, it's definitely waterproof and it's a nice bright blue color without being in-your-face blue. My Pilot Custom 823 has been continuously inked with this ink since I bought the pen in 2010. (I did flush the pen out once just because I thought I should from time to time, but I don't really think I needed to.)

While I like the shade of blue from Pilot's ink, I have read some reviews stating it's a fast drying ink - it's not. I doubt I would purchase it again.

Pilot Blue is a rare exception among a multitude of blue inks by being both a pure blue and very water resistant. It has no cast that I can detect with different papers, dries reasonably fast, and is well behaved in different pens. There is always a "but". It can be on the pale side depending on the rate of flow with various nibs. For me it works well with a Pilot medium nib or with a Pelikan M-800 fine nib.

Nice ink, smooth in my new Plumix, very precise, and the bottle is beautiful and stable, just like the color.

I was hoping this would be the same blue that was used in the Pilot Plumix. It is close in color but isn't as well-mannered as that ink. Nonetheless if you're looking for a nice general blue ink, this should be very good for you. Here are two things you need to know:

1. It works best on good to better paper. Even with a dip pen and a flex stub or flex nib it writes well right out of the bottle. No noticeable spreading. Very saturated. Does not shade well, however it is more water-resistant than most inks.

2. If you use this ink on cheap paper, be prepared for it to spread and soak through rapidly. If you're taking notes on a common legal pad for example, this ink probably will be very disappointing unless your pen/nib naturally runs extremely dry.

Old reliable. Your basic ballpoint pen blue. Use it everyday for notes and more. Free flowing, cleans up with just water. Works in almost every pen. Semi-permanent. A real easy going, Good looking blue ink in a big old bottle, that will last you a long time. I always have a pen filled with this stuff on my desk.

Pilot blue ink Is good-flowing blue with excellent water resistant qualities. It can be a little on the light side of blue in extra-fine nibs, but it is a true blue colour. The ink bottle is brilliantly designed, and the cost is pretty low—I think Diamine has a lower per-volume cost, but I generally like the Pilot ink better. This Pilot ink has a slight tendency to feather, but less than Diamine in my experience (at least Diamine Kensington Blue). I also found Pilot to be more free-flowing than Diamine, and also Sailor.
