No worries, I didn't want to start an argument!


I really like both inks, but blue black gets more use as it is a real workhorse kind of ink.

Although I have to say, that (at least with my bottles) there are no subtle differences, the inks look completely different. I can not see similarities between them (other than that they are both called blue black).

I think my ink color comparison skills are not so good cause I only see subtle differences.



maybe its the case that some people have a particularly good eye for inks, just like some people have a particularly good ear for music. Maybe its something you are born with??

Thank you for showing this to us.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

You could put the ink in Borosilicate glass Flask over the stove with a ultra mild temperature, you could get the results sooner.   :D

This is the color I get out of my Custom 823. It is a little bit lighter than in OPs pictures, but I really enjoy this tone. Then pen is a little bit on the wetter side, though.

One thing I really love about this ink: If I think about what I am writing for a short time, the first few letters or figures are considerably darker, which gives my writing a lot more of that "fountain pen personality".

Perfect ink.
