Private Reserve Tanzanite - comparisons and complements

Recommended Posts

Here's my fifth of these comparisons / contrasts thanks to @amberleadavis! :) As before, the paper is 52gsm cream Tomoe River.  Also, I left the images big so any who wish can zoom in and see color in detail.  Color reproduction isn't too bad - I describe any variation in the ink list at the bottom.

Ink List:

  • Private Reserve Tanzanite (cartridge)
  • Guest boxes: DSS (Diamine Sargasso Sea?), PRAB (Private Reserve American Blue) NEW and OLD
  • De Atramentis Pigeon Blue (looks a little more blue in the images than in real life - it's teal)
  • Diamine Red Dragon (came out brownish on paper, though that doesn't show in the images)
  • Sailor Kujukuri Coast Hamanasu (looks too purple in the scan)
  • Kobe #28 Lilly of the Valley (looks more muted in all images than in real life)
  • Sailor Nioi Sumire (also looks more blue in the images than in real life - it's blurple)


I particularly like Sailor Kujukuri Coast Hamanasu with this ink.  Kobe #28 isn't too bad either.

I love Blurples.

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

Clearly you were made for capes and crowns in the royal color! ;)
