Starts out blue green then gets darker

This was part of my search for the perfect blue/black ink. This isn't it but it still is great. I mainly use lousy 20lb printer paper and it works fine. I've only used it in a modern pricey German safety pen so I haven't really pushed it with a good flex nib. On good paper my guess is it will do even better.

Beautiful but no water resistance

This ink flows smoothly and has a beautiful blue-black color, leaning more toward teal than purple. The color from my fine-point pens was a bit grayer than what appears in the sample on this page. The ink only disappointed me when I put a drop of water on the dry writing and the ink disappeared. If it had left any trace at all I would have given it a fourth star.

Nice dark teal, lots of feathering.

Nice dark teal, lots of feathering., especially on lower quality paper. On Rhodia or similar, there's no feathering at all. I have this loaded into my 1950's Eversharp Symphony 713. I haven't cleaned it out yet, but apparently these inks are easy to clean. I like that characteristic, especially because it's in a vintage pen with a lever/sac filler, which my Noodler's Bad Blue Heron was not exactly easy to get out.

Quality ink

It is a very attractive color but in my Lamy Safari fine nib on Clairefontaine paper, the color leans more to blue than to green as it appears on the swab. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars, (which I to date have only awarded to Iroshizuku inks). It flow easily and evenly and dries quickly with good saturation. It is very high quality.

Unusual color

Blue green shading..good shading and flows well..can be used in business as an everyday ink...not water resistant.. Too bad.

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
