This is a bottle that I picked up from Bert at Bertram's Inkwell in the DC area over Christmas. His shop can be a little difficult to find, but it's worth the trip. If you're in the area, stop on by.
This one is a deep blue that goes down super dark and then lightens up as it dries. There's a good bit of violet in there, too, I think.
This one is a bit on the wet side, and it has a tendency to bleed just a little. It would probably be a little better in a fine nib, but I really like it in the broader nibs.
I just got this fancy Tomoe River paper, and it really shows off the sheen and shading in inks.
And now, compared to a close relative that has more sheen:
