    Mont Blanc StarWalker Blue Planet

    Mont Blanc – StarWalker Blue Planet The 2020 Mont Blanc StarWalker Blue Planet fountain pen pays homage to our home in the universe, and calls attention to the dark blue water in earth’s oceans. Not surprisingly, Mont Blanc also released an accompanying dark blue ink, that is the subject of this review. The ink’s packaging looks lovely, with a design that provides an inspiring view of Earth as seen from space, with swirling clouds over blue oceans. In the box you’ll find a very nice 50ml bottle of StarWalker Blue Planet. StarWalker Blue Pl

  3. I initially thought this ink leaned towards the purple but see now that it dries to a deep navy / blue-black. It's a very well-behaved ink, and I've since loaded it into a piston-filler (Lamy 2000), run through it, and had it clean out entirely with around 10 flushes, so -- as good as any of the easiest-cleaning inks (for me, anyway). I ran through the testing rubric on Tomoe River Paper, so it gives great line definition and nice, true color -- but dry times are off the chart. Regular paper offers an under-ten-second dry time with a European medium nib (Kaweco medium tested). If you like the

  5. In the past six months I've been on an acquisition spree of OMAS pens (which is good timing considering the possible trouble the company's in nowadays), and with the three old-style Paragons came three different colors of ink: the Arco Verde came with OMAS Green; the Bronze Arco came with OMAS Blue, the darker, old version***, apparently; and the Burlwood model came with OMAS brown. So far OMAS Blue is by far my favorite of the three. ***this is based on internet research speculation and a video by the Goblets explaining the difference between old and new.

It is dark, dark blue, so dark that it might be a blue-black, with some shading and a hint of sheen. It is a very deep, serious color indeed, and to does remind one of the darkness of the deep ocean that it its namesake. Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread. This month will be a little hard for me to arrange review partners, as I will be traveling almost the entire mon
  7. Rather than hijack either the Diamine thread or the "shading blues" thread for my ink searches, I decided to start my own. OK, fade resistance is clearly the first of my go/no go characteristics. I want my blue to have it. I will want decent flow and feather resistance on cheap paper (which is all I use). I also want it to be resist ink eradicators. I think I'd prefer a pretty dark blue ... say, not too far from the menu immediately below the banner on this site. I don't want it to be too purplish (e.g., Diamine Imperial Blue). And let's face it, I want a darkish purple with the same

    De Atramentis Indigo Blue

    Yesterday I posted a quick look at De Atramentis' Atlantic Blue. Here's the other ink I picked up - Indigo Blue.

    De Atramentis Atlantic Blue

    Damn that Brian Goulet and his cornucopia of ink scans! He got me again... I'm becoming more and more fond of De Atramentis inks, and I have a particular penchant for dark blues. Based on the scans on Goulet's website, I picked up a couple (one of which is Atlantic Blue). Since there doesn't appear to be a review of this ink on the site, here's a quick one with some pics. Performance is typical De Atramentis. A wetter ink with good saturation and overall behavior. It has good lubricity, and the stock Lamy nibs glide easily across the paper. The curious thing about this ink is the s
  10. Hello, Over the past few months I've been desperately trying to find a suitable blue(ish) ink for my Cedar Blue "51" Vacumatic with a fine nib...The thing is that I don't particularly like/use fine nibs (it's my only fine nib besides the Konrad flex nib), but this one writes more towards a medium than an extra-fine, is pleasantly wet, and was my college graduation gift (couldn't part with it in a million years)... so I use it for cursive writing (I usually write in print). I've tried a large variety of blue inks (oh yes, forgot to mention...blue isn't really my favorite ink color), startin

  12. I think the current name is Manganese, instead of Manganate. Is an ink with two names twice as interesting? I like this one. Very similar in depth and saturation to my De Atramentis Sherlock Holmes ink, which is just a little bit more vibrant blue hue. This one flows well, really smooth. Has a bit of shading, but it's pretty dark so it's not going to show in a fine nib. Dry time is on the long side of average.

    Dark Blue Inks

    What is a good dark blue ink that you like to use? To distinguish: I'm not talking about a blue-black. I want a darker blue (Diamine Denim is a very good example of the type of thing I am looking for). Bonus if it's fairly easy to clean. Thanks Mike Picture shamelessly taken off of Goulet Pens
