Here are 10 blue-black(ish) inks and two “true” blue inks as a comparison. Just for the fun of it. I scanned the sheet and with that most of the inks don’t show their sheen (or it’s not that obvious in the scan) so here are some photos of the inks to showoff some sheen: And for those of you who care about water resistance of inks, here are the inks after 15 seconds water bath:
I recently got a few bottles of chelpark blue black which were manufactured in 2011. As this ink is not made anymore I had to buy what they had as I wanted to try the blue black from chelpark. When I filled one of my pens with this ink and got down to write, the ink was not at all blue or black or anything near! It was like some greenish blue cousin of Camlin green! Same thing happened with a bottle of camlin blue black I bought a few days back (it was manufactured in the '80s I think). I threw all of the 3 bottles. Now my question is 'Is blue black ink is quite unstable? Or is this just my experience?'
