@ yazeh -- I picked up a bottle of Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham a few years ago on a trip to Toronto for a conference (fighting Friday night rush hour all the way from Hamilton, after getting stuck in construction on the US side of the Peace Bridge  :wacko:) and then fighting my way BACK through OUTBOUND Friday night rush hour traffic to get to the airport (the conference was at a hotel at the airport, since people were coming in from all over).  Interesting color, but the ink is fairly dry.

OTOH, I would definitely do it again just for another chance to go to Wonder Pens (once I actually FOUND it, that is) and of course when I was coming back across the border on Sunday and got to US Customs I was able to declare "I bought a bottle of ink...."  B) 

Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth

 

ETA: I should dig that bottle of BUTPoA out again at some point.... 

Thanks Ruth. 

I love wonder pens. Ive never been three but buy from the often. 

It's funny you say, it's dry and I heard from other sources that it's wet or very wet, and paradoxically some say it has the constancy of tar (It reminds me of Kung Te-Cheng)

My experience with Noodler's is that inks that shade/ partially bullet proof, take a long time to dry on good paper (Black Swan/ Golden Brown /Kiowa Pecan). 

And I don't like that....

I did another comparison of Aonibi with 54th on Tomoe River....

Interestingly 54 did a little sheen number, which is not obvious in the scan, obviously :)

Nice!  This one makes the inks look a lot more similar.  But I'm strong!  I will resist.  Resist, I say! ;)

Thanks much for the review.  Still being on the trail of blue-black, I am interested.  It looks to me like Kyo No Oto Aonibi DOES have  hint of green, which I would like to avoid.

For example to my eye Shin-Kai has green in it.  So, does anyone have either Shin-Kai or Pelikan 4001 Blue Black to compare this to?  4001 is just about perfect (except it doesn't have the Sailor smoothness).

You're welcome!  To me, this doesn't seem to have green in it (and I usually see green where others don't - which isn't to say your eyes don't see even more green than mine).  I don't want to ink up either of these again, but here's the swab from the stickers I put on top of my sample vials:

Shin Kai is on the left, Aonibi on the right.  And comparatively, Shin Kai is more toward purple and Aonibi is more toward green.

Two amongst my favorite inks. And with the right pen don't feel  dry at all.

Blau Schwarz has good water resistance, Aonibi has none.

Don't worry. It only shades on Tomoe River. :)

And my guess is that it'll turn your EF into a Fne/Medium  with no shading on other papers.....:)

Wow...in comparison, Blau Schwarz looks purple and Aonibi blue.  Whereas on the caps Aonibi does look more teal.   Thanks to LizEF and Nibtip for the info.  Now I'm torn!

 

I'll have to think of a really unpleasant job that when completed will merit the purchase of yet another Blue-Black!  How about sorting out a chicken coop full of stored papers?  (Racoon got the chickens many years ago so it turned into yet a storage shed.)
