Gorgeous color, some feathering

I love purple inks especially darker ones. I ordered a sample in hopes of finding a wetter, more usable replacement for Diamine Damson.

By comparison, the color of this ink is slightly lighter and less subdued but equally gorgeous. Subtle shading is apparent, ranging between nearly black and dark purple. Dry times are on the long side, between 40-60 seconds.

It writes quite wet in my Pilot Stargazer with fine nib. It resists feathering on my Clairefontaine Triomphe 1951 notebook and on one of my Rhodia pads but had some spots of feathering on another Rhodia pad (with the same paper) for some reason. Feathers badly on cheap Ampad paper as is typical for most inks.

Maybe with a drier pen it would be less prone to feathering. It does have a nice, lubricated feel.

I would buy a bottle but the dry times and tendency to feather are a bit beyond what I can stand.

They won't let me post without a title T_T

It was much darker than I thought it would be, and not as much shading as I was hoping for. It's still a pretty color, just not what I was looking for.
