After researching reviews on this ink, and wanting to write all my letters using
a dip pen I bought a bottle. This ink is superb, tolerates amost any type of
paper without any feathering or bleed through. It's a joy to write with and the
colour is pleasing to the eye.

This is truly beautiful ink, and I can't wait for R&K's two iron gall inks to be
back in stock at JetPens (please?). It should be noted, for those not familiar
with iron gall inks (IGIs): they are more acidic than traditional OTC ink, thus
they can damage your fountain pens if you leave them inside. To avoid corrosion,
simply rinse your pen or other instrument after using IGI. If you've refilled a
cartridge with this ink, remove the cartridge and rinse your pen thoroughly. I
prevent my cartridges from drying out by stopping the opening with a bit of
kneaded rubber eraser. Store them upright in a repurposed cream container, such
as Neutrogena or Origins. The lid further prevents exposure to air, and you can
add a bag of cheap beads to keep one or two upright if you do not own enough
cartridges to prevent them tipping over. Better yet, reuse the cute yet
functional tin provided with a pack of 6 J. Herbin cartridges. Bleu Myosotis
(Forget-Me-Not Blue) is lovely and in stock now at JetPens!

Smooth and relatively free-flowing for an iron-gall based ink. Beautiful color
shift from blue to dark blue as the ink dries and oxidizes. Seems very safe in
my pens, and washes-out as easily as any other ink I've used. Highly
| Highly recommend.

I've run Salix Blue through two pens and I am pleased with how the ink performs.
Easily becoming my go-to ink for journal writing. Behaves well on all grades of
paper without feathering or bleed-thru. Delivers subtle shading. Dries to a nice
blue-black. Best of all, it is permanent.
