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

Ooh! Although it seems vaguely teal, I do like that Sheaffer BB color!

I was surprised, I like it too. Did I mention that it's waterproof?

I haven't seen anything on FPN about TEKKER INK, but I happened to see something about it on Facebook. So I went to the website [http://tekkerink.com], and since the prices were reasonable, I ordered three bottles.

 

The great idea, is that you can custom order the ink you want by hex color number! I've been looking for a good match to the official "branding" color of my Alma Mater, University of Illinois, and ordered the exact shade of blue. I Called it UIUC Blue (#002058):

I just opened the bottle this morning, and preliminary indications show some SHEEN to this ink...

Not major, like DC Supershow Blue or Naples Blue, but enough of a hint to make it interesting... ;)

No one expects the Tekker sheen!

For no apparent reason - and certainly not the color - the Daiso cartridges are listed as blue black.

Not sure if this is strictly a blue-black - more a blue-grey... Diamine Chopin.

I fine De Atramentis Document Fog Grey almost a blue-black too - certainly a very blue grey.

 

This, this is how I thought, and wanted, my Pelikan 4001 BB to look like. - it's gorgoeus. Thanks LizB

And a couple more -

 

One of my favourites - Rohrer and Kilngner Salix - looks bluer when used in a thick wet dipped line, more blue-black with a fountain pen:

I'll gladly join in the Salix party - this ink is a winner! The color is beautiful and it behaves (as an IG ink) very well even on the worst of papers. (Having said that, it has been defeated a few times by truly abysmal paper, but otherwise it's a reliable ink for standardly-crappy copy paper)

Not to mention it's shading and sheening.

Picked up a bottle at Paradise Pen (store closing sale - a 30ml bottle for $4, normally $8) of Paradise Pen "Black Blue". I love this color, but admittedly this doesn't look like what I had in my mind. Veering into grayish and a little on the teal side? Starts out pretty black (pictured writing below, is about a day apart).

I need to put my Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-ro Pine Tree Dew into a pen again, because this almost reminds me of it, from what I remember.

Does this color change mean the ink has iron gall components? It reminds me of classic Pelikan Blue-Black.

No idea, I'm new here :-)

Anyway, got the Syo-Ro tested and another picture, the Paradise is less green in comparison, but the newer writing is still darker. Odd.

Almost as odd as my new Lamy nib marked "F" writing this wide. Blah.

Well, Field Notes. ;) Looks like you have some feathering, too.

Probably. But this looks about twice actual size, my eyes don't see as well as my phone's camera these days.
