After discovering Diamine Sapphire Blue I have started liking blurple(blue purple) inks more.I was wondering if someone can recommend me a blurple ink which will be more on the blue side and school friendly?

Goulet Pens did a Blurple theme on January 2014. I copy-pasted it below and the URLS came with it.

 

Of these, I only ended up buying Noodler's Blue, but then this isn't really a color I like. Noodler's Blue is a nicely behaved ink, though it may not be as purple as you are looking for.

I enjoy J Herbin Éclat de Saphir. It's blue with a hint of purple, but not overwhelming. Plus it flows really reliably, which I'd assume is pretty important for school. :)

Goulet offer 2mL ink samples for sale on their website which is a much cheaper way of trying out inks first to see if you like their colour and performance in real life. You could choose every blurple you like and have fun trying them out.

 

Are you after an ink that won't wash off the page, or that will wash off clothes? Or just one that will flow well?

One of the problems is that I live in the UK and i do not have the wonderful ink sample system at Goulet pens .Meaning school safe I meant one that is not too purple due to the fact that unfortunately I have to strictly use blue and black pens.

First one that came to mind for me is Iroshizuku Aso-Gao. Beautiful, well-behaved purplish blue. It works well on most paper but gives off some sheen on better. The only downside is price.

For a true blurple, I would like to recommend Waterman Tender Purple.

As you're in the UK why not go to the Diamine web-site and look at all of their blue inks. They have lots that may tempt you, and you can buy them directly on their site.

 

I have reviewed several great blues of theirs fairly recently, in Ink Reviews: Tchaikovsky, Regency Blue, Blue Velvet, but there are many more.

Another option that may fit a school budget longer term is considering beginning a CMYK ink mixing set (C: cyan, M: magenta, Y: yellow, K: black). Chrissy mentioned Diamine - LindaMedley has nailed down the fundamental 24 colours here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/40629-noodlers-cmyk-color-mixes/?p=3253667

 

A couple of pages earlier in that thread shows her work on Noodler's CMYK with the extended chart including black. The Noodler's chart will give you an idea of the gamut of colours that can be readily achieved. (I have the Noodler's set, but had to freight them in from different suppliers which added to the cost.)

 

For the cost of 3 bottles of ink (a cyan, a magenta, and a black), some vials, and a few cheap pipettes/syringes, you'd have the ability to create many many variants of blurple. For the cost of a fourth bottle (yellow), you get access to a vast spectrum.

...and Anderson Pen Company offers 3ml samples also. Just checked, ISELLPENS also 3ml samples. I am placing an order right after leaving here.

+2 for Richard Binder's Blurple mix. Great color that you can push more blue or purple. 50% Waterman purple, 50% Waterman blue. Safe, free flowing ink.

If you have access to Rhorer&Klinger and Pelikan 4001 inks, you might like my "PPB #3 Mix." A waterproof purple-blue-black that works very well on the very cheap paper that schools always buy.

On the purple side: Private Reserve Tanzanite. Looks like a purple ink except when it is next to a true purple, then you can see how much blue it has.

 

 

On the bluer side: Kaweco Royal Blue. It has some definite purple undertones. It almost has a blue/lilac mix to it.

Hi,

 

In addition to the excellent suggestions above, kindly consider Diamine Denim, as shown below from a sampling of pens on a good 24lb laser copy/print paper.

 

http://i783.photobucket.com/albums/yy116/Sandy1-1/FPN%20Stuff%20-%202011/Ink%20Review%20-%20Diamine%20Denim/3a64355f.jpg

 

From a wet pen on cheap & nasty paper it might not be at its best, and could exhibit bleed- show-through. Otherwise, I think it is well worth a look.

 

If considered too dark, I reckon Denim could be faded diluted with [distilled] water to about 85% concentration with no worries.

 

Bye,

S1

      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

      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

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
