The "original" MB Turquoise has been discontinued for quite awhile now, but you should still be able to find FPNers that can send you a sample:

A bit more recently discontinued is the MB Ink of Friendship, here's a comparison of both inks:

Nice comparison!  Have you also compared to Balzac?

That is a nice idea. I love turquoise inks, j.herbin bleu pervenche is my favorite. You may also want to add Sailor sky high as well. It is not a limited edition ink, but it's not common( at least it's not common in hong kong.) I look forward to the review

To the OP,

It's been a good while since your last post. How's the review coming? Please give us an update.


Franklin-Christoph, Italix, and Pilot pens are the best!
Iroshizuku, Diamine, and Waterman inks are my favorites!

Apica, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine make great paper!

My favourite colour of ink...

I look forward to reading your reviews.

I've noted elsewhere on here my all-time favourites were Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea and Waterman South Seas Blue. Now I use Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku and Diamine's Aqua Lagoon most days.

I never knew how pretty Aqua Lagoon is! (photo courtesy Ms AmberLea ~

I didn't even know MB had come out with another turquoise ink - got any?

 

I'll trade you for Stormy Grey ;)

A comment on your comment about an ink not shading.

In my experience, that may not be the ink but rather the pen that is the cause of the shading vs. not shading.

Example; Sheaffer Skrip Turquoise. 

  • Out of my Parker 45 M nib, no shading, nice clean color.
  • Out of my Esterbrook, M nib, lots of shading

If the pen can flow enough ink so there is a difference in amount of ink put down on different parts of the stroke, it could shade.
