I very much like the color of Noodlers Blue (non-eel). It is a rich blue ONLY color to my eyes, not purple, turquoise, green, etc. I am wanting to replace it with a non Noodlers ink as it has gummed up the sac of my Estie J, a Parker 51 Aero, and is a genuine pain to get out of my piston fillers. I have tried Diamine Asa Blue which is a nice color but not as dark and leans a bit toward turquoise. I am quickly becoming a fan of Diamine inks though.
Yes, I know I can get ink samples but I don't want to go that way without narrowing the field down some. So any help would be much appreciated.
