I may have ask this question before and just forgot your answers. If so, excuse me. I can not find Toucan Bright Blue ink these days. A dealer allowed that he has my name down on a waiting list, but I am tired of waiting. So, is there a Sailor Ink this you would call BRIGHT BLUE? Surely there is! ---- Bright Blue, just a LITTLE toward the Turquoise color. I have learned in my old age that I like BRIGHT colors more than dark colors! Thanks in advance. C. S.

Sailor Jentle Souten in the standard Sailor range fit's the description of bright blue. Sailor Jentle Sky High would too, but costs more.

Do you want something that leans turquoise/cerulean? Or middle of the spectrum but bright?

Kingdom Note's Porpita porpita is a bright, extremely blue blue. No sheen, minimal shading, I'd say it's almost like Baystate Blue (though not as vivid, and very easily cleaned). Caran D'Ache Hypnotic Turquoise is a really pleasant ink, Pilot's Ama-Iro matches your Toucan very well, and Sailor's Yuki-Akari is similar, though a bit lighter. Kobe's Agean Sea is, I think, another very good fit.

Lamy Pacific (turquoise), it's visual twin Pelikan Edelstein Topaz (seems just a little wetter, more lubricated), Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki.
Am I Blue?

I have a tiny sample of Bay State Blue and some cartridges of Visconti Blue. I think the Visconti would be a safer ink.
In everyday use is an old stock bottle of Parker Super Quink Permanent Blue (with Solv-X). It works brilliantly in my Lamy Safari. I have just refilled it again with the same ink.
I had used Herbin Eclat de Saphir & found it too violet for my taste. Diamine Blue Velvet is a little dark, except in my Waterman which writes dry. The Herbin ink is a little pricey.
I don't know if the vintage Parker Blue is as good or better than the latest permanent blue.
I do I can't get Permanent Blue in the shops locally, just the wishy-washy washable stuff. So I go on-line instead of benefiting a local trader.

Diamine Royal Blue is more blue than Herbin Eclat.
But both are nothing turquoise-leaning as OP wants.
