Gulf Blue – GVFC

Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company’s introduced six inks. Last year they’ve added three new colors to the line. This year they’ve done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelves.

Graf von Faber-Castell joined forces with world-famous designer Kera Till. The collaboration resulted in new, fresh colors Gulf Blue is part of Kera Till’s Colour Concept for Graf von Faber-Castell.

The ink is moderately saturated but legible in all conditions. The flow is smooth and problem-free. It feels quite wet, even in drier pens and drying times are reasonable.

Overall impression – acceptable. Probably, I’ll even use all carts that I bought.
