St Dupont Royal Blue specs and description

 

The Colour is a nice blue... It is nohting special....

...that nothing special is not meant to have a negative connotation....

 

It is just that Royal Blue is sort of THE standard Blue ink ..... At least in Dutch primary schools..

 

Well I love the colour :wub:

Writing Samples

Well as some of you might know I have a very broad interest.... I am a reading addict and an inkoholic :puddle: :happyberet: .... So I will combine these interests down here in the writing samples.

The Age Enlightenment (1650-1780) was andstill is of utmost importance for todays (Western) society. It lead to the French revolution, the seperation of powers (though that was Montesquieu). It gave us freedom and motivated us to be critical and reasonable.... Reason over blind Authority :thumbup:

I like the ink. It is not so highly saturated But I guess no Royal blue is (check comparison wiht Pelikan on the sampler sheet)

I love the colour because it is a vivid happy blue :D

Well and those wise words by the 2 Frenchies are still up to date today :notworthy1:

Warmest Regards

Peter

VERY NICE - was that you in the center?

 

I have the prior version of this ink. I think it has become bluer. Great review!

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

Dear Morbus, I have a bottle of this ink exactly like yours and unfortunately found significant fading after a few days of writing with this ink - the ink becomes chalky pale blue in colour and loses the rich purple undertones. Do you find that too? I'm trying to determine if I have a faulty batch. ...

Cheers!

Write them and complain. It should not be that bad. I'll try and scan the 2013 fade results from the prior batch of Blue so you can see it.

That fading reminds me of my bottle of Caran d'ache Idyllic blue, which fades worse than my Quink Washable Blue. Such a disappointing ink, why is it so hard to find a nice royal blue?

My Vintages:

Sheaffer Triumph, Saratoga, Targa Slim and Targa Standard; Waterman 3V and 52 1/2V; Mabie Todd Swan Self Filler x 2; Eagle Unbreakable in sterling silver; Eversharp Bantam; Parker Duofold Lucky Curve BCHR and Duofold in red hard rubber; Spors Co. glass nib pens x 4; Conklin 2NL and 20P.

I love the ink but absolutely hate the bottle. I have several extra-large Orpheos which have very large nibs. I can just barely fill them when the bottle is new. After about three fills I can no longer get the pens to draw any ink, the ink level is too low because the bottle is so shallow. And it's totally impossible to pour out of that wide-mouth bottle. What were they thinking???

You are right there.... And those saolor bottles are the same nuisance to me....#

 

My advice in this case a small syringe and needle. Safety needles for syringes. These are blunt and meant to draw up fkuids from smaal medicine bottles

I saw the bottle on their website, made me interesting for the bottle. I have enough and completely captivated by other blacks, but the bottle makes me think about to buy a bottle of ink.

OK, it is 2018 now. I'm using cartridges and I agree with the fading. It comes out as a vibrant colour, but once it is dry it doesn't look much different form Parker's Royal Blue ink. I find MontBlanc's RB much more vibrant and lively.

Actually, the sailor bottles are rather clever. If you have a sailor pen, and you dip it into the bottle to refill it, the design is such that you only immese the nib, but not the collar of the secion, which means less ink gets wasted. Of course, it doesn't help when you are using a non-sailor pen with a huge nib - then you have a slight problem.

about 85% of my pens with #5 and bigger nibs don't fit the inkwell. Not even my 1911S can fill from it, let alone a 1911L or KOP.

 

Your ink bottle should at LEAST fit your brand's pens!

 

It's a clever idea in better bottles. Platinum has the inkwell as does namiki and they work much better.

 

The sailor bottle is too fat and too short.

      @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.
