Very nice

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

Same here.

I love a multi-halo chroma.

 

 

 

I've been on one most of my fountain pen life :unsure: . Thanks for this comparison. Chopin is looking mighty fine . . .

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...

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it?

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
