Blue mMerle is supposed to be Blue / Black. For me it's more Grey / Blue. Anyway I like the vintage feel about this ink. I read that Organics Studio owner tried to recreate some old Carter's recipe. He's named the ink after - I believe - his dog Ernest (called after his favourite writer - Ernest Hemingway).

I really like this ink! You may have convinced me to buy a bottle yet.

Visvamitra - you are producing great ink reviews - I particularly appreciate the chromatography bit, as I use fountain pens for sketching with a water-brush.

Thank you!

I have to say after several months of using this ink I still don't know how I feel about it. I'm not mesmerized by it really, but I find it compelling. It does have an old feel to it. I do keep coming back to it often. Of course it's in my Pelikan Cognac which certainly doesn't hurt.

Too bad that Organics Studio won't be making any more ink...at least not anytime soon.

 

From Organics Studio's Facebook page, as of Sept 24, 2014:

 

So as many of you have found out today, Organics Studio is officially on an extended hiatus. As you may or may not know, I recently started graduate school in the medical sciences at Weill-Cornell Medical  College in New York. My goal was to try and keep Organics Studio going in the background, as it is very near and dear to my heart. Unfortunately, I've had to come to the sobering realization that this is not possible. I would be overcommitting myself, and both my hobby and my studies would suffer, which is not acceptable. So yes, as of this past week, Organics Studio is paused. 

 

I met Tyler a few months ago at the DC Supershow - great guy and was making some very interesting ink.  I'll be sorry to see it go, as I think increased competition only makes for better ink and more choices.

Yes, sadly, school has to come first (as it should).  Which is too bad, because I really meant to get a full bottle of Blue Merle -- I liked the color a whole lot.

It is a nice color, and one that I wonder if I would have liked it had I tried it.  The photos remind me of a slightly greyer version of Sheaffer Blue-Black, or a bluer version of J.Herbin Stormy Grey, or....I guess you could come up with your own mix.
