Despite using this ink...
Despite using this ink for several months, I'm not impressed with the color. When it's wet, the blue is attractive but as it dries, it fades to a dim blue. It looks like a color faded by the sun and the lack of contrast with the white paper makes it unpleasant to read with my old eyes. I've used a Lamy and an Edison pen while writing on regular copy paper and in a Miquelrius notebook. The results are the faded same.

Bleu Myosotis was "meh"...
Verified Purchase
Bleu Myosotis was "meh" for me. It's blue on cotton paper. In my journal it turned a light blue/purple, which felt more faded than anything. It didn't strike me as significantly different from other generic blues in Quink, Waterman's, or those generic universal cartridges. It's serviceable but nothing special. I was hoping for a blue that would wow me, but this did not.

Other posts have recommended J. Herbin inks for glass pens. I found this ink too runny for my glass pen. The ink flowed too quickly out of the groves on to the paper.

It's a glass pen, but...
Verified Purchase
It's a glass pen, but nothing great. The design and function is pretty utilitarian. The point was scratchy, so I worked on it with some 1k-10k sandpaper. It's smoother now. The initial line tends to be really think and then moderates as one might expect. The choice of ink matters. Other reviews have spoken well of J. Herbin inks but I did not attain good results. J. Herbin's Bleu Myosotis is thin and tends to quickly run to the tip of the pen and drain quickly. I preferred Noodler's Blue. Being slightly thicker, it tended to remain higher in the grooves rather than flow to the tip. I also found that the pen needs to be held at a 45 degree angle to the paper to work well. As it's tilted more perpendicular, the line is starved of ink. A lower angle will release a thick stream of ink. VERDICT: The pen is great for ink tests. It can be used to write a decent line on the right paper. So, its handy if you want to write a short letter or journal entry in a color other than the one in your fountain pen.
