I am wondering then where did the rumors come from?

I was able to use distilled water to wash off the BSB without any struggle.

Different materials handle it differently.  I had a little staining but bleach took care of it.  I had more problem with the grout in the tile.

Oh my, I love that Vac 700.  Now that LahLahLaw performed magic on my Vacs, I'm reconsidering that blue especially if I load it with BSB.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I use it in a BSB dedicated Lamy Safari and have had no problems. I find that I have to flush it a bit more often than other inks.  

 

Did have 1 problem though: it melted the feed on a pen made by Waterford. Found it at a garage sale, filled it with BSB and then misplaced it for about 18 months. Took 2 days of soaking and I found the feed was melted. Totally my fault though.

 

Minor note: Liberty's Elysium is 95% of the vibrant blue that BSB is and it's safe to use in all my pens.

That blue Vac700 looks great with the BSB.

 

Just gotta keep telling myself:  I don't need another BSB pen, I don't need another BSB pen...


So many inks, so little time...

No, really.... I need more inks and pens!  That's the correct cheer.

Late to the game, but found this thread and thought I'd chime in on yet another BSB topic...

 

I've used it in almost all of my non-vintage pens, including sac-filling Heros and a late-model Safari with no problem. It's a mainstay in a Noodlers Nib Creaper and a 616, and used to use it a lot in a Lamy 2000. Surprisingly washed out completely clean on the latter. For practicality, I tend to prefer it in screw-cap pens, since its a very wet ink and the action of pulling off a cap will sometimes get some on the inside, leading to later disaster (I've spent more time swabbing out the inside of Lamy caps than I want to admit). 

 

It doesn't look nearly as neat in a demonstrator as you would want or expect, unfortunately. But sure is fun, especially if its a cheap one. 

 

Other than that, I've found the ink's behavior really depends on a number of factors. I've had it dry instantly, and take a day to dry. Feathers badly on cheap paper, but looks amazing on the good stuff. Writes well on an XF, but looks amazing with something bigger. 

 

And for cleanup, ethanol or Amodex works wonders. 


10 years on PFN! I feel old, but not as old as my pens.

A lot has been said about staining, if it's here, I missed it, but the biggest headache is that the chemistry of this ink is different and it absolutely does not play well with other inks. So, if you one day decide to use a pen that had a differnt ink in it, make sure it is REALLY(!!) clean of the old ink. BSB seems to coagulate when mixed with other inks.
