CONS
  • Only available in cartridges in the EU. (What is that? Who makes up these absurd rules?)
  • No water resistance.
  • Medium difficulty for cleaning - it is a purple, and saturated, after all.
OVERALL

I love purple inks, and a great, saturated purple ink is not all that common. This one is a beautiful deep purple, not so laden with sheen that you can't see the base color, but exciting enough that I want it. A whole darned bottle of it.

I received this item 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.
