PROS

  • Nice, safe blue.
  • Shades pretty well.
  • Easy to fill from bottle - accommodates even large nibs.
  • Bottle is eco-friendly. 
  • The label on top of the cap of the bottle has the name of the ink printed on it, as well as a tiny ink swab so it's easy to spot in your ink drawer/cabinet.
  • Not a bad price, especially if you add on to a notebook purchase or something.
  • Very work appropriate.
  • Well-behaved.
  • Easy to clean.

CONS

  • Personally, I have a lot of safe blues and would love to see other colors! 
  • Minimal water resistance.

OVERALL

The Darkstar Collection x Robert Oster Blue is a solid, decent color. Work appropriate, well behaved, easy to clean, all the good things. I think it looks best in wide, wet nibs - as most inks do - which may not be work-friendly! This kind of blue is not my favorite blue ever - I prefer turquoises or lighter blues, but that's ok. Perhaps it'll be the right one for you?
