Recommended Posts

Howdy folks!

 

I am looking for a bottle of Indian Royal Blue ink which will not fade with time. I am not interested in iron gall based ink(s). I will use it primarily for taking down notes.

 

Thanks in advance :)

The current fade tests have some of the Indian inks. I will report more. I suspect that the blues will not hold up well.

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

Can you suggest some alternatives then?

 

TIA

As far as I know, there is no such fade proof Indian Royal Blue Ink.

 

So which (Indian) inks usually stand the test(s) of time?

I guess none. You can try Pilot, Diamine or Pelikan though.Pilot Blue and Diamine Blue(different shades) are quite good in this sense. However, these inks are almost 300% times costly than common Indian inks though.

I use Daytone royal blue for taking notes. It is fade resistant for sure but not sure about fade proof. I have notes written 3 months old without fade.

I usually use Bril Blue or Camlin Blue. I found camlin resists fade better than Bril. For lecture notes, i switch to Pelikan black.

 

I use blue only for journals and letters. I have never tried Daytone. How is its performance compared to camlin ? I dont like dull blue, i prefer a bright blue shade and i like camlin, blue among the indian inks.

Koh-i-noor Document Blue. Certified as an ISO ink, so should be reasonably permanent, about $5 uncluding shipping.

Pilot Blue, Coke bottle version (350ml) :

having said that though, I don't see it on Amazon India :/

 

You might be able to get it from ebay sellers with free shipping.

 

-k

 

Edit: I just noticed that I actually linked the blue-black version. It *is* going to have excellent fastness, but it's more gray then blue. Now I wonder if Pilot Blue exists in this size or just the 70ml little bottle.

I currently run a blend of Pilot Blue and Blue-Black. It's a bit brighter than the Bl-Bla, but with a tad more gravitas than the Blue.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
