Very nice

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

,,,,I'm surprised teal is considered blue-black.

 

Same here.

I love a multi-halo chroma.

UW!

 

Yes, so far it's made my Top Three. Or Five, lol.

 

The Noodler's HH was horrible in that Wing Sung 333. I switched it to a Lamy Al-Star and it's much better so far.

 

PS: the scan makes HH look almost as blue as JH Bleu de Nuit...it's not. More of a slate hue.

Wow. Skrip Blue-Black! Note to self: get that.

 

The blue-black-esque ink that has been ringing my bells is the MB JFK. Which is not dusty and grey but genuinely has some blue in it. Looks like MB Blue-Black that someone poured little royal blue into. Just a tiny bit. It is also nice and wet. I like it more, much more than MB Blue-Black new or old. I wish it were not limited. I would just use it and diamine midnight as my Blue-Black substitute.

 

Though I am going to get me a bottle of that Skrip. That looks fine.

The top swatch is 4 days old, while the bottom one is very fresh.

 

This blue/black has fast become one of my favourite all-time inks.

What is the difference between "Sheaffer BB" and "Skrip BB". is one the 90s version and on the modern Sovenia(Bottle)/Slovakia(Label) Sheaffer Skrip BB (I liked #6 better than #13)?

 

Sailor Saku above is lovely too.

Wish I could tell you, but the # 13 was a gift sample and I don't know its origins. The #6, however, is from my own conical bottle purchased new a couple years ago, so probably, Slovenia.

 

I have a somewhat vintage Sheaffer/Skrip Blue-Black (inkwell bottle) that was not included in my test, mainly because I can't easily get the top off.

I quite like blue-blacks. Montblanc IG Midnight Blue was my old favorite but since I can't find it anymore I am quite keen on MB JFK and Kaweco Midnight Blue. I also loved my sample of Edelstein Tanzanite but have never got around to ponying up for a bottle. Pilot Blue-Black is one of those inks that is far too often overlooked. It's more of a dark blue than a blue-black but offers excellent water resistance, smooth flow, good behavior, and even a little sheen -- and it's cheap. A perfect student ink.

My favorites are Rohrer & Klingner (LE 2012) and Louis Vuitton. Blue when writing and black when dry.

Blue-black! My favourite color! :wub:

The question is; what color is blue-black? :unsure:

 

I'll be on a business trip for some days, but I will try to post some of my blue-black when I get back home.

For me the question is : "What ink is blue-black ?" And the answer is a blue ink when you write which comes to black when it dries.

To be honest in the list I posted yesterday, there are only two blue-black inks : Rohrer & and Klingner 2012 Limited Edition and Bleu sibyllin (Louis Vuitton).

I think there is a big difference between true blue-black inks and blue inks with dark shades. That's a common mistake.

I didn't know that there was a definition.......? :huh:

 

In my opinion a blue-black is a dark blue which shades to almost black. Which you don't consider as blue-black.

Oh it's not a universal definition. I just gave you mine. If you accept dark blue with dark shades (almost black) so you get a lot of blue inks entering in the blue-black category. That's up to you. But it's not working for me.

And to answer to your your question, there must be a definition somewhere. Let's find out...
