Today I'm reviewing Diamine Majestic Blue A medium to dark blue ink from the standard range, Diamine Majestic Blue seems to be discussed more frequently than most other Diamine inks. Many love it's strong blue colour and red sheen, while some report problems like it stains hands and pens. I must admit I haven't written with it for ages and am guilty of letting my half full, old style 80ml bottle, sit around, unused, in a box. I took it out and examined it carefully. First I tipped it upside down and can report there was no sign of any sludge in the bottom of the bottle. Then I turned it up
sadiemagic posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsI have been on a perennial search for a PPS replacement & have tried so many inks and recipes to duplicate it. Some are close, but not close enough. But I think my search is finally over! Ordered a bottle of Sailor's BungBox Sapphire from VanNess and am running it in two pens. It is amazing! I have writing samples, as well as a small stash remaining of PPS, so I have compared them. Virtually indistinguishable. The only thing missing is the occasional sheen, but I need to try it on better paper and in a wetter nib. It was a pricey bottle, but worth it, to me. Sadiemagic
