Well, denim is a good word for this blue. I don't like blues that divert to purple or turquoise or orchid. And denims are never purple, turquoise, or orchid.


They could have named it Big Mac Blue, but that sounds like a Nathan ink. Nathan, how about a Big Mac Blue? Or a Blue Collar Blue?

For those of you under the age of 40, Big Mac was a JC Penney cotton blue work shirt for blue collar workers, and it had to match bluejeans. Michael Stivic often wore them on All in the Family. What a neutral blue!

What a great reference! Such a blast from the past. Always love hearing from you, Jeffery!

Sandy1, I have always enjoyed your reviews.
As a total techno-peasant, I often do not know how to effectively navigate web sites or posts. But this time I clicked on anything where the cursor turned into a "little hand".
Voila!
All kinds of additional information could be gleaned from your enlarged writing samples.
I'm impressed.
Though not a blue fan per se, as I was forced to use only blue in school, this Denim may be a good choice. It is quite like the colour of denim that has not been stone washed.
Indigo-like.
I like the colour & performance (& price per volume) of my first Diamine ink: Burt Sienna.
Hopefully this Denim will also please.
Thanks.

Hi,

I'm glad that you enjoy my wee Reviews, and are finding lots of information about the ink.
(Due to bandwidth concerns, I was asked not to include full size images of HiRes scans, so the reader must click on a link to display that image as I intended.)

I have used this a few times since the Review, and find it quite appealing.

Let us know of your experiences with this ink - especially as you are "not a blue fan per se".

Bye,
S1

Thanks for another great review, Sandy. I'm using it today in a medium nibbed TWSBI and I love it!! Previously, I used it in a fine nibbed Safari and I was not as keen on it. What a difference pen combination makes!

Hi,

You're welcome!

It seems that going to a wider nib usually makes a subtle ink more interesting - just because more ink is shown.

Was there a big difference in the tone of the ink when you changed nibs? Or was it just the increase of line width more appealing?

Bye,
S1

EDIT - to add: My Personal Pen & Paper Pick was the TWSBI + M nib. Is there a bit of majik to be found in that ink+pen combo?

When I used the fine Safari, I could see more grey undertones to the blue. In my medium TWSBI 540, it's much darker, richer and more blue. I definitely agree medium TWSBI 540 + Diamine Denim = Majik :cloud9:
