  1. Noodler's Baystate Blue needs no introduction. I am just a few months into the fountain pen hobby, but even I know that there is no other ink that polarizes the fountain pen community as much as the Baystate Blue (BSB). You either hate it or love it. I bought a bottle of this ink because much of my work happens near water tanks and I needed a waterproof ink for signing documents. But after I ordered the BSB on Amazon, I came to know about another water resistant ink that is made by a part time ink and pen making medical doctor named Sreekumar who lives just 3 hours away from my ho
  2. I think this is a "service" question, but if this is the wrong forum, I'm sure someone will tell me. ;-) I have a Noodler's Nib Creeper (among the first couple of production runs of it, I think) flex nib pen, which exclusively uses Bay State Blue. I am aware of all standard caveats about BSB. This pen writes SUPER dry. Just blotchy ink flow. Even after cleaning (standard soap to water, as well as some bleach and water, since that's a recommended approach for this ink). I've even take a little bit of light brushing to the ebonite feeder, and a bit of careful specific attention to the cen

    Baystate Blue Not So Blue

    Hey guys I am relatively new to this forums, I bought 2 samples of baystate blue from goulet pens. just need your input on it because I inked it up on my nemosine pen with a goulet M nib and the ink looks purple to me. for example like diamine majestic purple. I am using cheap paper but I tried it on good quality paper as well and I get the same results. I get a washed out purple with no saturation. Everyone talks about how bright this ink is but I sadly dont see it. Do you think I got a "bad" sample for some reason, I love goulet pens so I dont think they would make any mistakes. I tried samp
  4. For those of you just tuning in, two of the first three inks I bought were Noodler's (the third was Iroshizuku Shin-Kai). One of them was the infamous Bay State Blue. While I liked the colour, it had several problems: Nib creep, staining, leaking from nibs, bleeding through Leuchtturm1917 paper, and feathering on cheap paper to the point that anything written with it was illegible. Last night, I decided I'd had enough of this beautiful but very high-maintenance, ill-behaved diva and decide to purge it from my petrol blue Lamy Al-Star. This is how I did it: First, I attempted to purge the

    Greetings From Seattle!

    Hello fellow FP geeks! I am a returnee to the fountain pen world. A couple of months ago, I picked up a Pilot Varsity and loved it. Then I ended up ordering three Lamys from Amazon - a Lx, an Al-Star, and a Vista. I also ordered a bottle of Shin-Kai ink and bought two different Noodler's inks (one of which being the infamous Bay State Blue) from a local shop that sold it. I got back into the FP world because I am studying for a tech cert and wanted to do handwritten notes. I am a believer in the science that handwritten notetaking vastly improves understanding and retention of the sub
  6. I am happily the newest owner of one of Amberlea's favorite inks, Noodler's Baystate Blue. I got it used on eBay and unfortunately there appears to be some sediment along the rim on on the dropper. I was not very successful at trying to capture an image of it but here is what I got anyway, I see three main possibilities: Natural separation of some components of the ink as this is a highly concentrated ink Chemical reaction to the introduction of some other ink. I have read this can happen with BSB and poor pen hygiene Something biological (bacteria/fungi) growing in the inkAnyone h

  8. Several years ago, before I found this wonderful website, I had purchased Noodler's Bay State Blue ink to go into ALL my pens (yes, I heard the Siren's call. I'm completely enamored with that brilliant blue). I had no idea that ANY ink could be bad for a fountain pen (save for India Ink). Unlike most pen users, I don't particularly like changing ink on a regular basis. My infatuation is primarily for the pens so, like Steve Jobs who only wore one kind of mock turtle-neck shirt and jeans, I wanted to use only one kind of ink. I was completely indiscriminate about it. I loaded everything
  9. Has anyone tried using Noodler's BSB in their Pilot Metro? I filled mine a couple of days ago, and I swear the pen is now dragging. I've wiped off the tip of the nib with a lint-free paper towel and that helped somewhat, but now I'm wondering if this isn't a physical trait of BSB. Has anyone noticed whether their pens started to lose their smoothness when using BSB? This is my first Metro, so I'm not even sure how it's supposed to write, but I'm a big fan of Pilot so I didn't expect drag, especially since, in the first couple of days, I didn't have any issues with that. Do you use any
  10. Hoping not to break the forum rules, I recently purchased a sample of what some call the brightest blue ink available from the Tardiff stable of inks. Concerned over staining threats.... I have and really like my Kaweco Ice Sport. I have modified one of its cartridges so I can refill it with any ink I choose, via a needle syringe (works great). I was thinking I could try the BSB in that cartridge and if it becomes uncleanable, no real loss. However, am I creating an issue with the Kaweco's feed? Lookin to use the ink to see what all the commotion is! Thanks ...
