Diamine Majestic Blue vs De Atramentis Steel Blue
An Ink comparison for a somewhat peculiar reason
Notice Diamine and De Atramentis use similar lids
There is of course nothing so special about comparing two inks especially then they are both blue inks.
What is peculiar though that they are both very talented at smudging and staining. But I will come back to this later first have a look at the colours.
I will enter in the links to the more extensive reviews of both inks at the end of this review
Handwritten text comparison
Let me "throw up" another comparison
Sheeny Shiny happy Inks yeah
How great both inks sheen The De Atramentis Ink sheen very well but is topped by Sheen Master Majestic Blue
Down here is the reason that gave me the idea for this comparison
Both inks smear even after days of drying time. Just a drop of spit on the finger tip can cause this smudging
It seems to be quite normal though, some inks tend to smudge alittle more, they are no IG or document inks after all
In this comparisonThe Diamine seems to be the most talented when it cooms to smudging smudging.
I once had Dr. J of De Atramentis test the Diamine Majestic Blue. Dr J Lsaid that the ink was perfetly well... He liked it a lot!
La Couronne du Comte I guess Dennis and Rik would even travel to the moon to get it for you (just pay them a million or 2) Well it is safe to say that they do almost everything to satisfy their customers… Considering
Bankers have Rothshield Ink lovers have the Goulet Pen Company. Rachel and Brian carry the almost* largest assortment of ink on earth an it's near surroundings

Larry Post of Australia is a Great Supplier of Stationary and Artist Equipments. They carry a lot of De Atramentis Inks
The same applies to Singapore based Arters of the utterly friendly Yitpeng and WeetekOng
I really do like both inks. They both are lovely blues. Normally I am not so fond of blue inks because they are so standard that i believe that they are mor sommething for boring biro writers these inksmade me change my mind and I now use blue inks quite often
The Diamine is the better sheener therefore the De Atramentis seems to " hold his liquor" better
