The top one here is the before, and the bottom is the after.Nathan's pictures. I think the issue is that I've only got a sample of this ink, and it has probably oxidized enough that it's not exactly what Nathan intended. So, if you get a sample then you might not actually get the same results as you would with a bottle. I can't say for sure, but that's my hypothesis.
So, that said, I dig this color. It's a dark blue (for me), but not quite a blue black. It really reminds me most of Air Corps Blue Black, but with less green. I think I'd like it much better if it were the bright blue that is shown in Nathan's pics. If you've got this ink, I'd love to see what yours looks like.
Anyway, on with the (possibly inaccurate) pictures. I can only show what I've got.

Video Review and Water Test
For me, the jury is still out on this ink. It seems like a good one (aside from the bleeding), but I can't be sure that my results are typical. I might get a bottle at the Raleigh show just to see what it does from a bottle. If I do, then I'll amend this review. So this one is a maybe.
