Blueberry is a medium blue with lots of red sheen.
In large swabs on Tomoe River paper the ink has a lot of red sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
Blueberry has less sheen than Organics Studio Emerson, but more than Robert Oster Lake of Fire. Click here to see the blue inks together.
I used a Edison Collier Blue Steel with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. I didn’t have any issues with the ink smearing.
Overall, I was impressed that it doesn’t smear! A lot of high sheening blue inks smear on Tomoe River, so I was so happy when this one didn’t. I like the color, it’s affordable, and has some great sheen.
