Thank you for the comparison.  DeA Steel Blue is one of my regular inks.  I just love it.  D. Majestic Blue is nice, but I much prefer DeA Steel Blue.  


I am always amazed that DeAtramentis inks do not receive as much as attention since they are excellent in terms of behavior and formulation.  When I want to try a new DeAtramentis ink, I am confident enough that I will generally buy a bottle rather than a sample. They are a bit on the expensive side, but worth it for those that I use regularly. 


I do like many of the Diamine colors and find them to be great inks, and much more affordable.  But they are not as reliable; one color may be nicely wet and well behaved, and another color is extraordinarily dry or clogs the pen.  I almost always try a sample first, then buy a bottle if I like it.
