My affair with Franklin-Christoph continues with their purple ink.  Of course when I heard F-C and purple I had to get it right?

This is the color that arrived quite leaky and damaged.

Despite very very careful packaging on the part of F-C.

Sometimes these things just happen, and they made it right in a big way.  Not only did they send a replacement bottle they also sent replacement labels the next day!  So now the picture is more like this.

I decided to ink up my Pelikan M205 Aqua F nib for this review.  It is a great writer with a nice juicy line for an F nib.

The flow even in this regularly wet pen was very low.  It actually made it not enjoyable for me.  It even had low shading, and no sheen!  The saturation was ok, and it could probably be used in more relaxed business settings, but overall I was quite disappointed.  It seems like F-C and purple turned out to be a bad marriage, at least for a juicy line loving girl like me.  The color itself was ok, but not enough to put up with the rest of the ink.

Has anyone had a different experience with this ink?
