Don't forget to take my flex pen poll and win a brand new, high performance flex pen!

 

So I was on my quest for the perfect blue when I heard about a vibrant, waterproof, true blue. I jumped at the chance to try it. So far, my favorite pen to use with this ink is a Parker 21, and I just adore it with plain, basic cursive italic. LibertysElysium.jpeg

 

Here are some comparison photos of some comparable blues on a few papers:

 

World's cheapest notebook paper. (I bought 200 sheets of this stuff for about 50¢ in 1998. It actually accepts inks pretty well, so while it's the cheapest paper I've ever bought, and is see-through, I'm beginning to think it's not THAT bad.)

This is a timely comparison as I am trying to find a nice blue-blue ink.

I bought a bottle not long after it was released and although I don't use it much, it's a nice bright ink and I've not had any problems with it is the few pens I've used with it. Great review too!

I highly recommend this ink for a nice vibrant blue with some water-resistance. I've been using this ink for almost 2 years now for work and journaling.

Only one caveat, after 3 or 4 fills, I recommend flushing the pen clean with water. This maintenance is true for any pen/ink but more so for this ink.

Again, I use this everyday and I have this ink in 9 out of 16 pens currently inked.
Thanks,

Franz

It's a great color.  I have a rare 16 oz bottle of the stuff.

Forgot how much I liked this ink -- so much so that I filled a pen with Liberty's Elysium this morning (I have a slight preference for Noodler's Manhattan Blue) and was instantly cheered by its bright color (I like BSB, but that has slight violet undertones to it -- in addition to its staining issues; plus, sometimes I just don't want that much eye-sear on my retinas... :lol:).

Thanks for the review.

I was reading too quickly and saw "violent" undertones.  I thought, OH, yes, BSB does have violent undertones. :)

Obviously the sort of ink one needs in certain situations.

I must break out my bottle of BSB next time I need to write to particular bank underlings who are giving me an inappropriately hard time...

Yes, because in the words of Chicago .. that bank underling "had it coming".

A very vibrant and mostly well behaved blue.  I have had one issue - it leaves dry crusty bits around the threads of the bottle.  I was concerned about it drying out like that in my pen.  For a long time, I had no problems so I didn't worry about it.  Just recently, I was going to refill the pen (a Pelikan M600), and discovered that both the nib and piston were frozen and wouldn't unscrew.  First time I've had that happen. It took a lot of soaking in water to unglue it. I'm less happy with it now.

Thanks for the great review. I love this ink and the beautiful color, especially in a broad nib. The only issue I have had is it tends to dry up in the nib which makes me have to keep it capped if I don't plan on writing for more than 30 seconds.
