I felt quite differently about this ink. I thought it was much lighter and not
what I had anticipated at all. I tried a cartridge in my Kaweco Sport Fine nib
and felt it flowed more freely than the Kaweco cartridge I had used previously.
The packaging is beautiful, but I might be giving these away. When I think
"Sapphire" blue, I think of a more vibrant blue for sure. Lesson learned: check
an ink swatch next time!
I would give this pen five stars for looks - it's downright sexy - but the
extra-fine nib is scratchy. Maybe it's just my pen. Trying on a variety of
paperstock and seems to only write semi-decently if I'm on extremely smooth
paper. Hence, this probably won't be an everyday pen for me. I'll stick to my
Lamy Safari fine nib or Kaweco Sports.
