De Atramentis Black Edition - Black-Blue (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Black-Blue or a Blue-Black I filled my sailor 1911 L with this and wrote a sample. I have a Sailor 1911 S filled with Noodler's Squeteague and was doing a comparison between the pens and inks. I thought I had lost it and filled both with Squeteague. I flushed the 1911L and refilled it muttering to myself about being a ditz. I did a smudge of both these inks and they are virtually the same color: a dark, smoky green and no blue whatsoever. It wasn't until I read the first review above that I realized I was not alone. Fortunately they are both dark enough to use for most correspondence but I looking for a blue-black. I now have a lifetime supply of dark green. I did buy a ink sample pack and found de Atramentis Indigo Blue to be the color I was looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from black blue? Once having enjoyed the blght and well behaved poppy red from de aramentis I thought I might try their black blue since my Waterman supply had runout. The ink sadly though interesting is actually dark green. Not a glimmer of blue and wet, very wet, at least in my Onoto Magna classic. I already had a pot of ebony geen from private reserve so another dark green well... all this aside it is a nice dark ink. It flows well and dries quickly enough but did I mention it is not a blue at all. Cheers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Green Blue-black I like it. It writes better than most inks I've used. The only negative is the permenance. I'd put this up as enjoyable as Roher & Klinger Verdigris, but green instead of Verdigris' blue (which I think goes down looking green but dries blue). Bumped others out of the top spot for next bottle. Coming off Private Reserve's Ebony Blue (PREB), and the colors are very similar. A dark green (which I like), dark enough it doesn't look green at a distant glance. This is less saturated than PREB. Much more variation in the shading. It looks a bit like matte paint (rather than PREB's ink/shine sense). It writes wet, but not so wet as PREB. It also doesn't soak through paper (Rhodia, Leuchtturm, copier paper, Post-its). It dries quicker than PREB, but slower than Noodler's 54Mass (10+ seconds by my test on Rhodia). Not waterproof (upper layer smears pretty easily, though bottom does seem stuck to the paper ok). Lamy Safari-M. By the way, Brian's ink swab's are pretty darn good on showing the color/consistency of the ink. They can't show how they feel, but they're pretty good at showing color/shade/feather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely stuff! Years ago I bought out the last bottles of Pelikan blue/black ink from an art supply store, but was disappointed by its thin, pale color. The DeAtramentis blue/black you sent me is more than worth the (somewhat high, I thought) price. Lovely stuff. I am very glad to know where to find it when I need it. Thank you very much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Color of Ink I know I have a borderline case of color blindness, but I don't see any green in this ink until I hold the paper under running water. However, I love this color, to my eye it is a very dark blue black and is excellent for everyday use. It also flows very well and lubricates the movement of the nib over the paper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dark *Green* I agree with the other reviewers, this stuff is misnamed - it's actually a rather stuffy dark green on paper. Has a slight tendency to feather even on high quality 80/90g paper - Mnemosyne & Clairefontaine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep, rich ... color, but I'm not sure how I feel about De Atramentis' ink in general.
