Diamine China Blue (80ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb ink I own a lot of ink. It occupies a shelf in a built-in bookcase in my office. I have tried many brands, but my favorite is Diamine. The reason for this is simple: the blues. I can think of no other ink maker that features as many quality blue shades as Diamine does. I don't own all of them, but I own so many I feel I have the blue spectrum pretty much covered. My favorite is Majestic Blue, which is a vibrant deep blue. Perhaps the most unusual blue is China Blue, which corresponds well with what any sports fan might call Carolina blue. Sapphire Blue is a long-time favorite of many and writes with a purplish hue before drying to a true blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from China Blue i like this ink. It's not quite as light as the swab picture on my computer but it is a beautiful clear blue, not too green or too purple. It is very similar to a color called Canton Blue that is seen on Canton china. It works well in my creaper flex pen. There is little feathering on very cheap computer paper and none on good paper. There is lots of shading and the ink is slightly wet which I like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice soft blue This is a soft blue -- not supersaturated, but clean and easy to read. I'm still trying to decide which I prefer: China Blue or Indigo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medium Sky Blue! Not exactly sure why this is called China Blue, but it is quite the pleasant hue of blue. It goes on like a medium, fairly common blue and dries to a pleasant, soft darker sky blue - just what I was looking for. I'll most likely get a bottle at some point. Flows very nicely in my Noodler's Ahab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent every day sort of blue This is one of my favorite everyday colors from one of my favorite brands of ink. I've been using China Blue for about 5 months usually about everyday. I had hoped it would be sort of a light airy china blue, it is not completely true to the swatch up as of writing, it often goes a bit darker in both my (granted, rather wet Lamys) Safari and Studio. As always, on cheap paper it tends to feather a bit, but that's a given with fountain pens. I haven't had any bleeding or shadowing issues, unlike some of the darker Diamine inks and my wet pens (I'm looking at you, Terracotta!). Part of the draw for me as a color lover is that it doesn't have that purplishness that some other blues have (unless they're green tinted) it rather a pure blue. Brings to mind something from Sound of music, if Maria ever had the time to sit down and write her singing bits. However, it is such a charmingly not-quite-professional-run-of-the-mill blue while not being too, shall we say, zany to attract any unwanted attention. It has a nice range of values in every day writing (again, wet pens) and I enjoy the flow too much to leave in in my drier, finer nib-ed pens. It's not close enough to any of the other blues I've gotten for a comparison, but on a scale of Folsom Prison to Bessie Smith, I'd put it firmly at a "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, serene Diamine China Blue Not too wet, not too dry....flowing evenly, a soft clear blue, whether with fine-nib or medium.
