It's not teal, it's definitely blue. But it's not a royal blue, it's lighter.

 

#2 vs. one of my favs ... #38

The purple on the bottom is Kobe #18. The green is Kobe SOL light green.

Thanks a lot! :notworthy1:

 

Nice shading. How light is it? Quink Blue? Waterman Blue? Pilot Blue? Darker?

 

I like the Sannomiya Panse :wub:

I don't really have any of those inks you mentioned, but to me it looks totally average in terms of lightness. Maybe like Waterman Florida Blue? It's not SUPER saturated, that's for sure, but it's a nice, solid, "reliablue" (as I call it).

I guess I'll have to order one and play with it. I like how it shades/sheens, like it's made out of two colors (a blue and a purple-blue). Since it's definitely not teal I'll probably like it :P

 

A bottle of Sailor Ultramarine is waiting for me in the mailbox, I guess that if it's not purple enough for my expectations, I'll get the Kobe Panse too.

 

Thanks a lot!

I got my paws on it, here's a comparison to Asa Gao on A5 sheets:

And this gorgeous bruise-like color in retaliation to Amber posting retinal searing pinks in a different thread:

I'm using it right now on some "office paper", specifically a B5 lined notebook distributed by www.basics.com . This paper has a rougher, absorbent side and a smoother, non-absorbent one (guess it's treated on one side only). On the smooth side of the paper, Hatoba is sheening like there's no tomorrow.

It didn't do it on Rhodia / Clairefontaine.... at least not to any easily noticeable extent.... I first saw it with this notebook. Later I saw it with some Japanese paper, even more than with the notebook paper. Quite interesting since that paper is absorbent. I would have expected the opposite....

The office one - I have no idea, it's some generic stuff my company buys, I guess it's available from Staples or some wholesale provider (Grand & Toy?). It's identified on the first page as "Basics 59125-01" model.

 

The Japanese paper that sheens a lot - it's the Life "Bank Paper" notebook (avail from wonderpens). Amber had a similar experience with this paper - Bungbox Tears of a Clown sheened like Herbin's "rouge hematite", but otherwise was not sheening on other papers.

WOW.... Sheen!!!!... I am impressed that Saskia did not mention sheen but you find it... ;)

 

I can see a bit of sheen in Saskia's photo of #2.

Well, now I see it.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

For future reference, I don't mention things that aren't super duper thrilling if you can see it for yourself in the picture. On Rhodia paper there is some sheen but not a ton, so I left it up to people to use their eyes on the pictures they themselves requested to look at! :P
