Ink Review: Organic Studio Nitrogen Royal Blue



Recommended Posts

I am a fan of sheening inks, and this is the king of them. At a very reasonable price I had to try it out, and I am glad I did.

A lot of the files are too big, so I put together an album:

It seems they have reformulated the NItrogen, my bottle doesn't look ANYTHING like this.

 

 

The sheen is impressive (similar to Barrier Reef Blue, I might add).. but the jury is out on this company for me. A bunch of my previous inks either grew something or lost its colour (dye degradation) in less than a year. I wonder how long will this one last?

From my estimate I got a newer batch, because it was out of stock just before I got it a week ago, and its now out of stock again on Vaness1938. I am interested to see what happens with this ink as well and will update if anything goes awry. But as it stands now, it is a very well behaved, beautiful shading and brightly sheening ink.

sample on the way

 

if this ink is as nice as it looks in the review, even a bottle won't last long enough with me to go bad. one of the advantages to not owning many bottles of ink: they don't have time to go bad.

I added Optik Paper from my Black N Red Notebook. This is probably my favorite paper for this and many inks.

It just glows in comparison to the traditional sheen, like its metallic.

That's a beautiful ink. Does it have any water resistance?

A damp paper towel will smudge most of it off, so I don't think so. I use noodlers baystate blue for a basic water resistant bright blue, and 54th Massachusetts for serious never going anywhere blue. Of course there are others out there as well.

Excellent review. Thank you.

I've been sent a sample of this. Oh man :yikes: It is a SHEEN MONSTER ! Never seen anything sheen like this bad boy. :)

I got an MD notebook with Midori paper and I got a almost empty Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku bottle from Vanness, who engraved Nitrogen on it at no extra cost. So I thought I'd do another little write up about those things.

In this write up I use the same Jinhao 159 with a Goblet 1.1mm stub I used previously, but on the opposite page I used the remnants of the old bottle for my cheap dip pen to write with. I write that its my new favorite paper, but not really, I think I still like the white optik paper better. Although the simplicity of the MD notebook is really great. I compare this ink with my other sheeners and nicer inks like before:

- Noodler's Baystate Blue

- Pelikan Royal Blue

- Noodler's Navajo Turquoise

- Noodler's 54th Massachusetts

- J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor

- Sailor Yama-Dori

- Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji

So you can compare the shining, but also if you have any one of those inks you can compare the color differences as our cameras, monitors, etc are all different. This ink does seem to dry enough fairly quickly, but like most saturated FP inks it will smear with a good greasy finger to some degree to a while, or maybe forever. Side Note: I love the Sailor Kiwa-Guro so much that I'm getting Seibuko soon so if someone wants I can compare that also as I heard it sheens pretty nicely.

Here you can see the parts that pooled a lot bled through a little bit. but the thicker paper vs Tomoe River helped it not go through too badly I think.

I, not wanting to waste any of the ink, made some rings with the bottles afterwards. Here you can see that bottle now:

Shout out to Vanness for the free engraving. Sailor bottles are my favorite for functionality, but I love the look of the Iroshizuku bottles. It had a little Shin-Ryoku left and I was able to use my dip pen to play with it a little, and I fell in love with it. Took some shots of that: http://imgur.com/a/jaVmF

 

Overall still loving this ink!

OMG - I am doomed. I may have to order some of the empty bottles and beg them to engrave them.

 

Also, your review forced me to buy some of this ink...for science.

So far as I can tell, that's just a free service they offer. It's on their website under the couple of bottles I looked at. That and the fact that shipping was reasonable for one bottle, was the reason I went with them over other stores that I've done business with before.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
