Waterman Serenity Blue Review - Keep Calm and Write On

Waterman Serenity Blue Review

Waterman threw the fountain pen world in a confused frenzy a while ago when they had renamed their entire line of fountain pen inks. While the ink formulas have stayed the same, the names have taken on a vague complexion that requires us to relearn the colors over again. Let's get reacquainted with one of Waterman's best-selling colors, Serenity Blue (formerly known as Florida Blue).

Keep Calm and Write with Waterman Serenity Blue

Deep with saturation and rich with color, Serenity Blue can be categorized as a royal blue, leaning a bit towards the purple.  Dry time is 3-4 seconds on Rhodia 80gsm paper. Doing a water drop test reveals the ink as not being very water resistant. There is a slight bit of shading, even with an extra fine nib.

As with any Waterman pen ink, when the ink level starts running low, you can shift the 50mL glass bottle to make it easier to draw ink.

Waterman Serenity Blue (50mL) is our Ink of the Month for September 2014. An additional discount applies to this ink for the entire month of September or until stock runs out.
