Chesterfield Version Of Diamine Asa Blue?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know which colour of Chesterfield is the match for Diamine Asa Blue?

 

I have read through many of the threads but not found this....and I love Asa Blue!

 

Alternatively, anyone know a great inexpensive source for Diamine inks (that does not involve a large shipment from the UK)? Or want to unload some Asa Blue for a good price?

 

thank you

Where are you located? Here in the US, Goulet Pens, Indy-Pen-Dance, isellpens, ipenstore.com, goldspot.com and Anderson Pens all carry Diamine ink that I know of. Whether any other places do, or which places have Asa Blue in stock, I can't say offhand -- it's not a color I'm particularly interested in.

Ordering directly from Diamine is another option. Their prices and shipping costs are not onerous, even to the US.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Actually ISELLPENS has been "closing out" many of the Diamine inks & because of their recent sale have only a few colors left (Asa Blue NOT being one of them.)

 

BUT I did check VANNESS PENS & can say their site does show Asa Blue is "in stock."

Chesterfield Capri may be close to Diamine Royal and ASA blue.

Thanks--I am in the US and have ordered Diamine from various places...but for leaving bottles at work where anything could happen the price of Chesterfield is very attractive...and cheaper than any US retailer for Diamine or shipping from the UK. I found a lot of comparisons but none that clarified if Asa Blue was rebranded. I love that colour!

Update

 

None of the Chesterfield inks are Asa Blue (alas)

 

and the "Antiques" (Antique Oxford, Antique Yankee...) are blends of other Diamine colours so not exact matches for any of them

 

in case this is of help to anyone else

Thank you.

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

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY
