I've tried many different blues, J. Herbin Saphire and Periwinkle, Pilot's Blue,
Parker Blue, and even Platinum Blue Black. This is by far the best ink I have
ever used. It flows great, and the color is unbeatable. I need to use blue for
office work, and this makes my writing so much more enjoyable. Highly
Seems very watery and has a lot of purple in it. I was really disappointed in
the color of it and how transparent it was, I used up a converter full, refilled
it, hoping for a darker line on the second fill, but no go. I emptied it out and
refilled with J Herbin perywinkle blue.
I bought this off a friend in the office who is a pen enthusiast like myself. I
had a handful of Preppy's, and a Pilot extra-fine fountain pen. I had read about
the Safari's on this site and was hoping to get an extra fine when they came
back in stock. I traded him a Pilot G2 with a Mont Blanc refill and some cash
for this pen, and I have to say this pen is by far my favourite of my
collection. I've been using it for school notes lately and the medium nib makes
it so smooth to write with, and doesn't bleed at all. I used up the cartridge
and loaded in the converter with J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir. and it's a machine.
No problems with it at all. Worth every penny in my opinion.
