It's my first ink comparison on FPN, I hope you'll find it useful.

A great, comparative review. It's given me more to think about before I visit them in April. Nice to see the colours like this as well.

I too think that the colour comparison is nice and up to very persuasive, but... what does that have to do with Amstel, Hertog Jan, or Grolsch ?

Thank you for this!
I only have the Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indigo, but I really enjoy it!

It shades very nicely.

I'm glad you find it interesting :) My list (from the one I like most to the one I rather dislike) is as follows: 24, 5, 3, 18, 13, 22, 23, 8, 7, 27, 9, 15, 17.

Are these samples, or do you actually have the bottles?

I don't have scans to share, but I just got a bottle of Akkerman Treves Turquoise and one of Akkerman Oranje Boven.

The Treves Turquoise is reallyreallyreally close to the Diamine Aqua Blue, and the Oranje Boven is reallyreallyreally close to the Diamine Orange.  I'm seeing them in the light of near dusk, though, so maybe I'll be able to tell a difference in strong daylight, but so far, they look so close as to be virtually identical (Oranje to orange, and turquoise to aqua, that is). 

Nice colors, both.  Hardly any shading at all, though.
