I called it Indigo Sea. Sargasso Sea is a great mixing ink.

 

Damning with faint praise???

OH No, I love Sargasso Sea, but it's a super saturated stainer and not for the faint of heart or those who let ink dry out in pens.

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

Visconti Blue. I discovered this gorgeous blue ink from the discussions on FPN. I've been looking for a new blue, and had decided on Diamine Blue Velvet before I got a sample of this. The two inks are very closely matched, and it's a bakeoff to decide which I'm going to purchase as a full bottle. I currently have Visconti Blue loaded in an Aurora pen (sacrilege!) for longer-term testing.

 

On my samples, the Visconti flows a little wetter than Blue Velvet, and is just a touch more purple. Dry time on the Rhodia paper is fairly quick. This ink is also a close match to Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue.

Ahh, so the BSB of the Diamine Universe...

I'll have to get some.

I was not entirely aware of the stainage factor, but I love the color, the shading, and the sheen.

 

On the suggestion that it might get goopy and gunky, I did my coffee-filter procedure. Oh my. When I poured the Sargasso Sea out of the bottle, either the glass of the bottle was actually stained, or it left a film residue that coated the glass. In any event, this is one powerful ink... :o

Now on to other blues. A new acquisition for the New Year: Montblanc Miles Davis Jazz Blue.

 

At first, I was scared that it would be too light and too boring, but I have to admit it is a really nice shade of sky blue —not turquoise or cyan, just a bright, light blue. Jazzy and subtle, hard to pin down. I like that.

 

Here are some images for context:

Looks like this ink's closest relative —in color— is Sailor Souten.

Herbert, I liked your Tekker light blue (forgot the name). I liked it's transparency. But I just dislike MB Miles Jazz Blue. Maybe it's because it's not a colour that should be linked to this name.

I see your point. But I look at the name as an homage, a way to celebrate him. Perhaps you can think of it as the soft blue of cigarette smoke in a cool jazz club... ??

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
