Dept is a beautiful dark blue.
In large swabs there is a hint of pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
Overall, it's well behaved and a nice color, I do wish the flow was just a little bit wetter.
