This reminds me I have a large bottle of this ink that hasn't been used in a while. Makes me want to fill something up with it again. :)

Oh, what a relief! Now you know, what BSB is all about, and it's good to hear that you like it.

Yeah, I've got some other blue samples to try, but I may wind up getting myself a bigger bottle of this.

I thought I'd give this older post on Noodler's Baystate Blue, which seems to be the definitive review, a shot for a question rather than a new post on an old topic.


I like the blues but I am not an ink guy. I try to collect primarily representative samples of Pelikan/Pelikano and other black German pen brands from the 50's - 60's. I have Pelikan Koenigs Blau and a blue/black, a straight-leg blue. and a very nice Holy Mackeral Sapphire Blue.


I gather from the above observations that it is probably a good idea to have a dedicated pen for the Baystate saturated blue.


I have just ordered a Jinhao 450 for 74¢ including shipping. Before I order a bottle (probably the 3oz size) of Baystate Blue:


•  Do you inksters think that this will be a good working combination?


(at 74¢, I'm not too concerned if the pen isn't the right one, or staining, if it is)
