Don't have any photos, but my favorite blue/black is Iroshizuku Shin-kai, which is really more of a grey/blue. I like it because it has none of the green/teal cast of so many blue/blacks.

 

Another nice blue/black is De Atramentis Sherlock Holmes.

 

My real preference is for really dark blues, like Diamine Anniversary Regency Blue.


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

OH dear, you are totally right!
 
So, please post up some pictures, scans or samples of your blue inks in action!  We aren't looking for a real review or comparison, just a quick snap shot or slice of life image that shows the ink on paper and tell us what you like about it.

BTW, Blue was here.
Brown was there.
Red was in the woods.
Did you ask about violet (or was it vioLeNt) purples?
Green was leafing us.
Orange is bouncing around.
Black is back.
Here be Pink.
Yellow is Spot On.
Jim says we must share our Black-n-Blues or was it Blue-Blacks?

Thanks Amberlea!

 

Lot's of nice samples here. Beginning to think I should not have started this thread, my ink list just got longer!

 

I knew I liked the Starry Night (can hardly wait until it is available again!)

 

The ShinKai is gorgeous! Liking the 54th Mass Noodlers as well!
