I love the shading and sheen of Diamine Asa Blue but by far prefer the flow and lubrication of KWZ inks, and since I've just run out of Asa Blue and Christmas is around the corner I thought this would be a good time to find a replacement. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any comparison pictures online. Can anyone say anything to the colour differences of the inks?

I have only tried KWZ #3 which was a bit greener than Asa Blue but there is a good comparison at Fountain Pen Follies.




judging by the photos there testing a sample of #5 might be the best start.
