blue inks are my fav
Permalink Closed


i use blue inks a lot, specially for signing docs. here is a scan of most of the inks i use. i've included some others, like shoreline gold by PR and cocoa by Swisher (made by Noodlers). there still atwo others i didn't include cos' i got no pen inked with those. they are emerald and midnight black, bothby Swisher.

my most used are the Private Reserve midnight blues, whichIMHO, isa true blue-black;and dc supershow blue which lubricates very well. i just bought Naples Blue and it has great shading. i also got a bottle of Diamine Blue black, but i don't have any comments on this one cos' i haven't used it too much yet... pretty color though!!

here's the scan:

I'm more of a green & purple kid, but blues make it into the rotation from time to time.

I really like that Naples blue. I've not tried it yet, but it's now on the list. 80% of my inks are either PR or Noodlers. The rest are either diamine or vintage sheaffer skrip. I love the persian rose & peacock blue I found last month. My all time non green (my signature color) is Diamine Imperial Purple. The richest most intense purple I've found.

I am into Blue-Black inks myself Peter!
So, what do you think of the Diamine BB?

I like this ink, but it's more of a dark teal to me!
I like Sheaffer BB, and MB BB.
I also mix inks to make my own dark blue/BB colors.

diamine BB: love the color!!! but is a bit dry, doesn't flow very well. it performed terribly in my aero p51.

i use it in some of my wet writers!!

another thing to watch out for is that it condenses on the nib always leaving a wet powdery residue on the nib and section and have to wipe and clean often.

i'm not buying it again; others love it!!!
