Beautiful, my absolute favorite turquoise. This was my go to "look at me" ink until I bought BayState Blue. To me this is what turquoise should look like, and very inexpensive to boot. Color on your scan is spot on to what I see on my papers.

Regards,

Chris
Now if only Noodler's would make a refillable dry-erase marker, I would buy a lifetime supply....

I'm guessing you lean towards the Quink brand. But that's only a wild guess.
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

You are a pretty good guesser,Sam. :) I like all turquoise colours.Was very fond of the old Sheaffer Peacock Blue.

I literally just got this today.. and wow! Shading is amazing! (Especially when I don't write in cursive) It's a great color, bright and happy (does it remind anyone else of a pool party?), but not overtly so. :)

One of my favorite colors to use in a flexible nib. I find it to be just a tad darker than the scan shows.

Hi,

I have both; and believe at first glance they are quite similar in terms of colour.

A set of 'comparison exemplars' of SST is planned, as is a Review of the MBIoF in the not toooo distant future.

Hi. Any comparison with Lamy Turquoise? I just recently bought 3 Lamys and this one came out at a local shop.
