It's very blue. Good for correspondence. Despite the fact that this ink is washable, it is a nice, vibrant shade of blue. This is the blue cartridge that comes with all Lamys. If you liked that ink color, stick with it.

I do not understand why people are complaining that it looks dark grey. I admit the first time I used it, the ink DID look grey. However, I realized that my pen wasn't fully dry yet. When your pen is dry after cleaning, it is a very nice black. Of course, my standard nib is a medium nib. I also use it in my Lamy Joy 1.1. It really makes my handwriting stand out and gives even my cursive a calligraphic look.

It is MUCH darker than the ink in my Pilot B2P ballpoint or gel pen. It's why I switched to fountain pens in the first place.

I love this fountain...
I love this fountain pen. Totally beats the Pilot Plumix. The cartridges are easy to use (unlike the Pilot Plumix). I use it every day. I like the blue color of the fountain pen. It can take abuse. Usually when I drop it the cap is on. It is easy to clean. I don't have a converter yet. I just put the nib section under warm running water until the water is clear. Make sure you dry it thoroughly with a power towel before you start to write. I keep making that mistake.
