Used this ink in a Platinum Plaisir Fountain Pen - Medium 05 Nib - and I'd say they are a match made in heaven.

The blue itself is a very lovely color. I often get some places in my writing that are a lighter blue than others, which can become a very deep blue, and it gives the overall appearance a sort of watercolor feel. While I do say lighter blue, I do not mean anything unreadable, just slightly lighter, enough to give a nice depth to everyday writing.

I've never had an issue with the ink being slow to dry or drippy, seems to dry or soak into my page fairly quickly, little to no bleed (depending on the paper quality).

It's a beautiful every day blue, and while expensive, I highly recommend it. The bottle will last quite a while, so I see the investment being very justified.

  This was definitely what..., January 16, 2013
This was definitely what I was looking for when buying my first fountain pen. I'd wanted something that I could use every day, maybe loaded with a pretty color of ink. So, I picked up this ink, a converter, and a bottle of lovely blue ink, and it's been nothing short of writing instrument heaven.

The nib flows very nicely on a page, gives a very nicely weighted line (05 is the best descriptor there), and there have been no breaks in my strokes, even on signatures.

I plan to pick up another color to load with a waterproof basic black, for more official uses (such as checks and whatnot).
