This is the most brilliant, interesting blue ink I've found, and despite not
being "business," it's still my favorite--I use far more of this than any of my

The ink is very close to injet printer cyan -- just a bit greener. It tends to
darken if you pause writing, but that gives the mass of text a lively apperance.
I use it in a Platinum Preppy converted to eyedropper fill. This combination is
very smooth, fast and fluid. Now I fall back to my old Castell TG .35 technical
pen only when tiny writing is needed.

Love, love, love this ink! This was the first bottled ink I purchased from
JetPens and it does not disappoint! It is an absolutely lovely turquoise color.
I filled it up in my pilot metropolitan and have never looked back. Just a
warning, the ink does bleed and feather on cheap paper such as leaf paper. When
I am taking notes with this ink, I just have to be careful to write on only one
side of the page. The color stands out well from the white pages and makes
studying a joy. I am very happy with this purchase.

This is my absolute favourite 'turquoisy' ink ever. For me it is THE perfect
I am not happy that the company chose to re-name the ink since "South Seas Blue"
really is what the ink looks like, but at least it remains the same beautiful
color no matter what the name!
Excellent flow in most any pen that I have tried to using it in, but no it is
not in the least waterproof . Unless noted 'water-resistant', 'bullet-proof' or
some such thing most fountain pen inks are not water proof or water resistant so
this quality is the norm rather than the exception.

this is an additional review to note that South Sea Blue is now Inspired Blue. I
have run two full eyedropper loads of this ink through my Platinum Preppy with
03 nib ("fine"). It is the fastest, smoothest pen/ink combo that I have. it is
great for high-speed note taking.
But beware, this is is not in the least water-resistant. Spill water on your
writing and it will be gone!
