Great series of reviews. I really like this one myself.

You've been doing some great work, please keep it up. Thank you.

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

#50shadesofbluechallenge (link to the hashtag on Instagram) is the hashtag for the ongoing challenge over at the German PenExchange forum for July & August 2020. Since I inked up all my pens for this challenge with all the 50+ blue inks I have I also want to share my snapshots here.




Regency Blue is another blue-black in Diamine's 150th Anniversary line of inks. It is heavily leaning towards purple (you might call it a blurple ink), as you can see where I smudged it with some water. It flows nicely in my Pilot Parallel Pen and develops some nice sheen in wetter areas.
