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. (electronic immigrant because I do not understand the language of the "dot com age!")

I think Private Reserve Cosmic Cobolt and their DC Supershow Blue are very “bright” or intense, though not as much as Bay State Blue.

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

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.

I'd stay away from Baystate Blue. It's actually quite dark, the eye-searing is a different optical effect. It's also on the violet side, not the green/turquoise side. That said, I find diluting it makes it brighter (and friendlier). You can try the same with your other inks. Less saturation so you can see more of the white paper.

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

 

Am I Blue?

Monteverde Sapphire Blue and Horizon Blue are rather bright blues, as is Diamine Blue Velvet. Looking at a sample of Toucan Bright Blue in Ink Reviews also reminded me of Noodler’s Ottoman Azure.

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 Florida Blue, when run fresh and wet, is surprisingly bright :)

Diamine Royal Blue is more blue than Herbin Eclat.

But both are nothing turquoise-leaning as OP wants.

+1 for Sailor Souten. A lovely turquoise leaning blue that is bright, cheerful, and we'll behaved.

Yet another Sarah.

Have you tried Montblanc UNICEF Blue?

Seems to match the shade of Blue that you are looking for.
