Eclat de Saphir is a vibrant blue-purple or blurple.
In large swabs the ink looks much darker, more purple than blue.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 15 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes.
I used a Pelikan M600 Violet with a fine nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I really enjoy this ink. It has a nice flow, gorgeous color and dries quickly.
