@loganrah, I'm not sure if you picked up or at least tried any of the Noodler's Prime of the Commons blue-black ink the first time the box came around to you, but its colour is more of a dark teal than a dark blue, so it may yet fit with your quest for petrol-coloured ink. It's not a limited edition, although as I understand it there is only one retailer (in the UK) that carries it. I relinquished my 3oz bottle at the start because I can't stand the woolly outline it makes on most papers including Rhodia, but since then I've come across one or two types of paper on which it doesn't feather. I think someone found good use for two-thirds of that bottle (excellent!) but rebottled the final 30ml of it in a Diamine-style plastic bottle. If you haven't tried it, give it a go, and perhaps compare it with Noodler's AirCorp Blue Black (which is also dark teal, but more vivid and less "petrol" like).
As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
