Great review. I love this ink. A pure dark blue. I agree, definitely not blue-black. With a little effort, it has cleaned up fine for me. No staining, but as with most things, YMMV.

 

I've got a review I wrote months ago, but never got around to posting it. Freakin' work/life gets in the way every time. :huh:

I love this 'range' of CP/Diamine inks and the DD Blue is no exception. Even with a SF nib I noticed a bit of shading.

I love this blue! I wish I could use it more though. I have a ton of vintage sheaffers and I found that this ink melted the sacs of two pens i used this in into goo. :( I still love it and use it in piston pens, but I thought it looked great coming from a Snorkel. No dice anymore!

This ink is worth owning. It's stunning.

Thanks! Biggest advantage (for me): it reminds me of S.T.Dupont's Bleu Nuit / Dark Blue, which is unfortunately only available in cartridges.

 

Duh

I'm guessing that Dark Blue is not the Blue that is available in the bottle I have that is unlabeled but appears to be a bright blue. Hmm.... I hate when it's in cartridges only.

Again, I find your artwork stunning... and I also say again... I thought you were a lawyer... but I've heard from you and your neighborhood friends that you actually are one... your exploitation of the fact that so many inks are namely not water resistent -- T G -- shows me again and again what our inks on paper can really display...

 

BTW thanks that you say that they are the crudities of our day. I simply buy their carts and transfer same into a bottle. If I ever have enough time -- during perusing thru your artwork -- I might get down to doing a real review on same...

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
