Has anyone used or seen PR Black Magic Blue? I'm thinking of getting a bottle and just wanted to get some feed back on it first.

 

Thanks,

I love the blue black color.

It is more navy than a Waterman Blue Black.

 

When I wiped off the excess ink and did a water test, it shows that it has traces of lavender in the mixture.

 

The flow is fast on this ink. I have inked 2 pens with this ink : VP and Parker 51 SE and they all write great = )

I went out and bought a bottle. Once I got it home I inked up my Sheaffer. I must have picked up a bad or mis-labled bottle. The ink comes out totally purple. It reminds me af PR tanzanite, a bottle of which still sits on my shelf, still nearly full. (Purple just is not my favourite colour. I think I'm going to write PR and ask if they have had any complaints about this ink and ask if they will be willingly to exchange this bottle for another color.

Can you scan the colour? It sounds kind of cool to me, if it's purple-black. But then purple is one of my favourite colours. I would have thought with the name, it would be some form of blue-black though. I think you should at least contact them about the ink, and see what they have to offer.

Never lie to your dog.

The Scan is a little lighter purple then the actual color, but there is no mistake, this is a purple ink. :(

I think your ink is the wrong color. Mine is more navy.

 

If you want, I am open to buying the PR BMB from you, or trade another inkwith you.

b/c me via FPN mail if interested.

Bryan,

I got your email.

I am open to trade your PR BMB with a Swisher Midnight Blue (full bottle).

 

Please let me know what you think.

 

My hotmail is weirding out and I am not sure if you got my email.

 

Thanks,

KCkc

Hello KCkc,

 

That sounds like a great deal. I didn't get your email, I'll send you my address and hopefully you can get your hotmail to work.

 

Thanks!

I am using the Black Magic Blue ink now and I just love the color, it is very nice to have a dark blue, at first sight on the paper I instantly fell in love with this ink.

Black Magic Blue just arrived here. I'm at the office and pens already loaded so I dipped paper into the cap and smeared. It could pass as purple. I'd call it borderline blue purple. The name describes it fairly well since black magic suggested a purple kind of blue to me. I also got nightshade and violette pensee with the same order. Guess I do tend to like the purplish ones a lot. Not enough red in it to call it a purple so Black Magic Blue seems true enough.

 

I like the color. I just hope it isn't too wet for my Moleskine pages.

Got this loaded in the 600 today and it is blue. This ink line has definite presence and is very dark but blue on the violette end of the blue spectrum. Flows too yet leaves a very nice line. Not at all washed out and no grey or green tones. There is no way I could call this a purple.

Actually, if you compare BMB to Tanzanite, you will see that it's more subdued and bluer. It reminds me of Aurora Blue, or Tibaldi Blue, for those of you who got one of those bottles together with a pen. Flow is similar to Tanzanite, and all the other PR inks.

I'm still waiting for substitutes for Penman Sapphire and Sheaffer Burgundy!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
