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.

Someone recently mentioned this to me in terms of being similar to MB Ink of Friendship. Does anyone have both and could comment? I'm super curious!

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.
