Camlin Royal Blue Ink|Colour Changed.



Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a few standard (60ml) ink pots of the camlin royal blue ink. As soon as i laid down the first line. I noticed that the colour has been changed. I had purchased a few ink pots from Mumbai and the other from Ahmedabad. I noticed that no matter the location, the colour now is different than the previous ink. (Both have manufacturing dates of around mid-late 2014)

 

The change is ever so mild, but it is noticeable none the less. The newer colour has become more of a uniform blue which is a bit lighter in hue. The earlier colour had a purple-grey undertone to it which made it a bit more saturated and darker. (I hope all this makes any sense!)

I guess it will be better if i just showed the pictures! Here they are.

The left one is the new colour. The right one, the old colour.

I suppose it is more clearly visible in the last picture.

So what are your thoughts? Please share your views. If you haven't noticed it, do you think you will like the new colour? And if you already noticed this, What is your opinion?

What a bummer.

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

What a bummer.

I am starting to like the new one better! But of course opinions will vary. That's the beauty of it. :)

When I read the title to the thread, I was afraid that the change of color was from the same ink, changing with time. I was relieved to see that it was only a difference between formulation between batches. I have an old bottle of Montblanc Blue Black which faded in the (plastic) bottle over the twenty or so years I've had it. It became a sort of watery grey blue with time. Hence the sensitivity to color change.

 

Based on positive reviews here, I ordered a bottle of Camlin/Camel Royal Blue a couple of months ago. This batch was made in June of 2016. I liked it so much that I ordered 3 more bottles, just to have plenty in reserve.

 

To my eye, the color change I see in the above pictures is difficult to discern. I think I would be happy with either.

I don't know which one I tried, but I was really pleased with the sheen. It is a nice ink especially if it is easily available.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
