Eclat De Saphir - My New Ink

Quite a few months ago I became addicted to blue ink. I used to be the guy that believed that if you weren't writing with black ink then you might as well not be writing at all. That all changed and now I only get slight urges to write with black, blue is my new black. Obviously, I was excited when Karen from Exaclair offered up some blue ink for review. I requested Eclat De Saphir or Bleu Nuit. Karen, being the kind person that she is, sent both. Around this time I also acquired some Hero 616s and I was dying to try out both the ink and the pens. I like both of the inks but there is something about the Saphir that is perfect for me. It is what I have been looking for in a blue ink.

It is a very vibrant color but it also has a deepness to it. I get no feathering in my journal and no bleed through. It writes wonderfully. I have filled and used three fillers full of this ink in my journal.

This is a nice crisp color and I plan on using it until I run out.

I hope you enjoy this ink as much as I do. Remember, you can view more pictures on my Picasa Album and on my Flickr page. Thanks for stopping by! Nr
