Another sample from Goulet January 2014 ink drop. This is a dark, darl purple. I wouldn't really describe this shade as grape coloured. Regardlesss I enjoy this shade. It looks mysterious but yet a little naughty. Hey! Maybe it's just me. Flow is quite good in my Lamy Safari. It behaves much much better than Private Reserve Electric DC Blue. Show through is a minor problem but it seems to be a recurring problem with darker inks on cheap paper. Dry time is pretty standard, on par with other inks.
