This is a mostly hand written review of Organics Studio Blue Crab ink. It was a Baltimore Pen Show special, and the leftovers were sold off by various retailers. Thus, I was able to purchase a bottle.

 

In the artificial light here at home the color looks amazingly close to the Thistle T2 with 1/3rd more water added. It is not as shady as that ink, nor as wet, but it can appear very close. In natural light I think the Thistle is more to the green side (but that's based on memory). The ink is reasonably water resistant once dry on inkjet paper.

 

I did not do a chromatic test of the ink while it was inked in a pen. So I don't have that.

 

The ink is a bit on the drier side from what I love, so that's kind of my only quibble.

 

Anderson Pens website lists OS Blue Crab in 55ml and 4oz bottles in stock as of the date of this writing. I have no affiliation with any company listed here.

Hmmm. This one is nice. I haven't tried it and that's a mistake. This looks great :)

Thanks. It definitely has some good qualities. But it was rare before, and now only a few bottles left floating on the internet.

Must find a way to buy this stuff

Very nice blue.... thanks for the review

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)

I think there is one feature missing: the remarkable CHALKY final appearance when dried on paper.

If you like that "earthly" texture on other inks, this is a must for you!
