Hi Sheaffer's lovers, I recently noted a marked difference in style (and apparent quality) between two Lady Sheaffer's that I own, the number VI Paisley Periwinkle model. Attached are some photos in which I tried to give the best sense of the differences. One pen is slightly duller, and the pattern seems to be composed of "wave" forms with pointed crests and round troughs; the other pen seems to be brighter, but of less accurate milling perhaps, with more symmetric "sine wave" forms composing the pattern. The nibs also seem to have some *very* subtle differences; the nib on the left belongs
I LOVE Noodler's Baystate Blue. In my humble opinion, it is the best color of blue for fountain pens. My only complaints about it are: It is not fully bulletproof.It might not be eternal meaning it might not archival nor fade resistant.It bleeds through most of my papers I use including my checks.Rectifying the above are very important to me.

Resulting in an almost perfect Crayola periwinkle blue. Sadly, according to Pendemonium, Nathan isn't going to make any more of this and i
I'd heard this one was Iroshizuku's periwinkle blue. It looks close. I like a good periwinkle color. It's just fun to say. This seems a little drier than some of the Iroshizuku inks I've tried. Just a bit. Still flows good and doesn't feather, bleed, or insult your mom. As standard for Iroshizuku. Did better with the water test than I was expecting. It's close in color to Namiki Blue. (which I realize now I forgot to add to the comparisons on the sheet)
