My absolute favorite ink and has been for 20 years.

 

Maybe you want a backup bottle via a trade? It's not my thing; too purplish. My bottle sits idly after 3 weeks with just one fill.

One of the best inks you can buy. It's one of the few true blue-blacks, if you ask me.

Thanks a lot for your review!

 

It's a gorgeous color, and I'm actually surprised to see how much darker it is than Pelikan Blue-Black (which is my standard BB). Your review convinced me to get a bottle myself eventually :)

 

Is it true that Lamy Blue Black and Montblanc Midnight Blue are actually the same? (Read it somewhere.)

Thanks for the praise everyone! :)

 

 

As far as the ink being the same as the Lamy blue black, I strongly disagree... I was just in my local shop doing swabs days ago to see the difference and I found the Lamy to be similar to Pelikan, not MB. MB is somewhat purplish, whereas the Lamy blue black appears to have more true blue components.

Very nice iron gall ink, smooth and not to thin, what is almost unusual. It requires some regular maintenance though.

I would have taken you up on that if I had not bought a couple of bottles on Sunday.

Nice review.

 

This is the only one of the current MB inks I do not own.

 

Have you ever tried it on Moleskine?

I have, I used it regularly for awhile. It performed well with my wet writing Wall Street LE, not much bleed through, but as is par for moleskin, there is a fair amount of show through. I only use one side of the paper in my Moleskins, so it wasn't an issue for me. Im sure that if you used a less wet pen, you would easily be able to use both sides. But this is just my experience!

Seemed to perform great on Moleskine for me too :)

Really awesome ink! I'm a novice fountain pen collector, and I was wondering if this iron-gall ink is safe for my stainless steel-nibbed Waterman Expert?

 

Thanks! :vbg:

The non-shading...do you have a semi-flex nib?

 

I had Lamy Turquoise not shade on 80 gs/m paper and shade on 90 gs/m paper.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

No Semi-FLex... Just a stock EF in my 2000 :)
