KWZ makes some great shades with a nice saturated color and good seen and this one is no expectation. The only things I can add to the reviews below is for a comparison of you have...view more it is it's very similar to Robert Oster Blue Denim on cream colored Tomoe River paper... The main difference is with a glass pen Blue Denim's sheen more outlines my writing where the seen makes a "two-tone effect" with this one. Also... The packaging is high quality...

Dark blue ink for people who don't usually like dark blues
I don't usually gravitate toward dark blue inks, but I fell in love with this one. It shades dramatically between an almost-turquoise through an almost-black, even in fine nibs. Th...view moreough it has noticeable sheen on most good papers, it's not so extreme that you can't see the original color of the ink or the shading it creates. Like many highly saturated inks, it can be a little easy to smudge after it's dry if you have sweaty hands, etc., but it's not nearly as bad as other super saturated inks I've used. Cleaning it is as expected for a highly saturated ink, i.e., it can take some more flushing than normal inks, but so far I've seen no problems with staining or damage to my pens. It could be used in a professional setting but is in no way a boring ink. view less
