  • Such an intense and vibrant blue! Not just "another blue". 
  • Adorable little bottle.
  • Bottle is easy to fill from when it's full.
  • Comes in a cute set with a storage box.
  • Shades beautifully.
  • Perfect name, once again.

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Exhibits a little bleed through with wet use. 


This is such a vibrant, deep blue with so much intensity. So pretty. Another great color in this set!

I received this item/these items 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.

Franklin-Christoph Flex Nib Teaser Video

Franklin-Christoph sent me their new flex nib (14kt gold, fine) and their SIG flex nib (14kt gold, SIG grind, fine) to play with. This is not sponsored - I was not asked to make this video or even post a picture of the nib or writing samples on this blog. I was just feeling creative and had shot a few videos and pics, so I sat down to share some of that fun!

Visit Franklin-Christoph for a flex nib of your own, and I definitely recommend the SIG grind. It's a lovely combination of italic and flex! Please visit me on YouTube and subscribe & like if you enjoyed it!
