Great review! Thank you! Interesting... your reflections on the difference between blue black and dark blue. I would agree that Denim, Midnight and JFK are blue.

You're welcome. :)

Writing with EEFs, this has become my absolute favorite blue-black. It's terrific for note-taking, correspondence and just doodling. Looks great on light beige card stock and stationery. The only ink in my pens more frequently than this is Noodlers FPN Starry Night, which I consider to be a black-blue.

Thanks for this review, it inspired me to give it another go. The bottle had languished at the back of the draw for years because I recalled it being a rather dull, flat, greyish blue - rather uninteresting.

 

Well, tastes change! in a wet M600 it now seems an excellent blue black, similar to Edelstein Tanzanite but a touch more blue. Indeed, a better blue black than Diamine's "official" attempt which has never done it for me.

 

Now, I know you think it is blue, not BlBk and I certainly agree there is a difference between dark blue and BlBk and that Midnight is blue. But just what constitutes blue black is a puzzling question. I shall begin the research with a set of samples from each of my blue / blue black inks and start a thread.

You're welcome. :) Good for you to get it out and try it again. :)

 

I suppose everyone has their own opinions on exactly where a dark blue becomes a blue-black :D

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
