PROS
  • Beautiful caribbean sea colour! LOVE.
  • Gorgeous shading.
  • An outline is sometimes visible when using a very wet nib and ink is heavily deposited. Very cool. 
  • Resembles Caran d'Ache's Caribbean Sea ink (which is discontinued, this could be an alternative).

CONS
  • Expensive. 
  • Not water resistant.
OVERALL

This Kaweco Paradise Blue is beautiful and is well-named. I love the gorgeous turquoise colour and I love the shading. I think it's just beautiful. Given that Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea is one of my favourite colours and it's now discontinued (and I only have a smallish hoard of it), I have to find a replacement, and I think I've found it here.

I received this ink free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
