I swore I would never pay 43.00 for a bottle of ink. I just had to get the Beatles purple. It is a beautiful purple. But, everything about the ink is good. Writes smoothly, highly saturated and intense colors. Each color is unique in a way I can t explain but thiscolor is teally different. It is sort of a grey taupe or taupe grey either way you could see it. Highly unusual color and I recommend.
