Blue Merle is a recreation of a vintage Carter's ink. The color is somewhere in between a dark grey and dark blue. It has more blue tones compared to a typical gray ink but also it is less blue compared to most blue-black inks. So far this ink has proven to write very well with good ink flow and has a nice antique look.
Blue Merle shows a little bit of shading, depending on the ink flow of the used pen. Since there is no true look-alike ink available this unique ink could become a highly sought after ink - especially after Tyler Thompson announced to stop producing ink for the moment in September 2014. Luckily another announcement was made in January 2015 that production of few selected inks might continue.
