    This is a helpful review, thank you. It would be wonderful if it had just a hint of water resistance. Still even with this sad defect it is a lovely colour.

    I received some inks from a friend and an original bottle of 3/4 full Florida Blue. Now thanks to this review I can use it knowing what to expect.

    It truly is a wonderful blue ink. I use it on a daily basis, with an EF nib. Always flows well, no hard starts and doesn't dry-out on the nib easily.
