there was a smidgen of interest is a separate thread for turquoise ink. Amberlea suggested the person who seconded the motion might just do it, but the conversation went off in another direction, and it did not happen. So I did it. I have no new review to add to this opening post but the link above will take you to the twenty or so turquoise inks I scanned and put in the blue thread. Also on that page you will find a picture of Lamy Turquoise that looks more accurate on my screen than does my own scan.

Sailor Yuki-Akari. I'm not a fan of this ink; the shade is too pale and it is a dry ink.

Thanks for all the support for this new thread! I am seeing some scans that differ from what I see with the same ink, but that was true of my own scans as well. Maybe this is just a tough color for scanners. It was interesting to see a scan from someone else of Noodler's Turquoise, which looks close to blue-black -- exactly my experience.

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

Here are a few of my most used Turquoise-y blues, with the last few moving towards blue-green:

Bondi, Pacific, South Seas, and Fire and Ice are the ones I use most, and keep loaded in pens.

You noticed!

 

Actually, Krishna Peacock is good, but not great. Krishna does spectacular inks in the warm range, but cool range is not as impressive, IMHO. I can send you samples of some of the ones I have, if you're interested in trying them out...

Did you realize that Peacock ghosts through?

 

And I'd enjoy small samples, thank you.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
