Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue Ink Ink Review
 This ink dries at what I would consider a normal speed - not fast, not slow. With fine nibs, it's pretty quick, and with wetter nibs, it takes a little longer (30 - 40 seconds) but that's not all that long with a wet nib.

OVERALL

Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue fountain pen ink is a classic deep blue ink. It's a well-behaved ink - it doesn't feather or bleed, and for a fairly saturated ink, it has minimal show through. It is quite affordable and is a great basic blue for work, school, and everything else, especially if you can ignore the unattractive label. The only real downside is that it's not water resistant so if you need a water resistant blue, you'll have to look elsewhere. Otherwise, I recommend you give this ink a go.
