Diamine Registrars Blue-Black (30ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Registrar's ink A fascinating ink that goes on grey-blue but turns darker a few seconds after it hits the paper. Writing with a Lamy broad nib, it comes out like a dark blue black (someone has accurately described the color as the sea under starlight). Writing with a rather wet dip pen, it oxidizes to black, on Moleskine paper anyway. Not the most fountain pen friendly formula (acidic) but from what I've read it is useable. I use it in my inexpensive Lamy Safari and will flush often. So far, no problems. Service from gouletpens was top notch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good iron-gall ink choice I bought a bottle from CultPens as an add-on item (to fill out the flat rate international shipping box) since Diamine is about half our price in the UK. Other than writing a bit dry as already mentioned several times, I found this to be a very nice permanent ink. I've cycled it through several pen brands and have experienced no clogging problems with the iron-gall formulation...and I don't flush after every use as recommended. It reportedly is acidic and can cause corrosion on steel components but I experienced no issues with a couple pens with steel nibs...Lamy Al-star and Pilot Metropolitan. After that, I've used it in a model 805 Pelikan and a Nakaya...again, no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ink This ink is some kind of miracle ink. It doesn't feather or bleed at *all* on any paper I've thrown it at so far, including Moleskine and the cheap recycled copy paper they use at work. It darkens to a classic-blue black color, at least for me. It flows just fine from the pens I've used it in (Sailor High-Ace Neo fine, Rotring Surf medium, and Ranga dip pen with feed). However, be careful cleaning your pens -- I let a couple of drops fall in our old iron/enamel sink and now there are two new blue-black stains added to the rust ones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-behaved permanent ink I am partial to iron-gall inks as they don't fade over time and can be quite water resistant, they also tend to handle cheap paper far better than most fp inks. The Diamine registrar's ink is not a pure iron-gall ink, it contains some blue dye that makes it easier to see what your writing. The blue dye is not waterproof but the underlying iron-gall ink is. Overall this ink performs mostly like an iron-gall ink in that it is a bit on the dry side and it handles inexpensive paper very well, almost never feathering even on the cheapest copy paper. The color is a very respectable darkish blue (depending on the nib) and is appropriate for most uses. I haven't had any problems with clogging of feeds and I have used this in a number of pens vintage and modern. Overall I would recommend this ink especially if you are looking for an ink that won't feather on cheap paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ink, invincible I bought a 30ml bottle for signing cheques at work. I wanted something that could not be taken off without removing the paper. This ink is exactly that. I had to test it to be sure, and it doesn't come off for any reason, water, bleach, alcohol. it's impenetrable. I think it goes on a bit thin for my liking, hence the 4 star rating, but that it personal preference. If you want something that can't be removed from paper, give the Registrars Ink a try. plus, it's fun to watch it change from light blue to blue-black right before your eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamine Registrar's Blue Black Looks Great Diamine Registrar's blue-black writes well. I've used it only with a fine nib. It tends to dry quickly on an uncapped fountain pen but it's easy to start the flow again with a tap or two or a moist finger tip on the tip of the nib. I've had it in a Preppy fine tip for a few weeks and it writes after uncapping without hesitation. The flow does increase after a few strokes of the pen. I like the color and I especially like the security and enhanced confidence of waterproof ink. I have some test writing on a Rhodia dot pad from several ink samples. The Registrar's Blue seems to be the most resistant to water. In comparison Diamine Sherwood Green nearly washes off of the page leaving no legible copy and Noodler's Black American Eel is "bulletproof" and washes only slightly leaving entirely legible but smudged copy. Still Registrar's blue-black seems to smear slightly less and leaves bold copy. My only reservation is whether the iron gall content would damage a pen over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Everything about this ink is as reported by other users. If you like the final very dark blue-black then you should be happy. But what about the corrosive effects of the iron-gall base. I am putting a Noodler's Ahab to the test doing everything wrong on purpose to see how serious the effects are. This will take some time, nothing to report after two weeks. You can hear Gregorian chanting echo in your mind as you watch the ink change color as it dries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good ink for medical charts I was hesitant to try an iron gall ink but on a whim I got a sample and filled up my Lamy Safari. It writes a little dry, but there is no feathering and no bleed through on my charts. The water resistant feature is perfect. It dries faster than Noodler's Feather X so there is less chance of smearing on my charts. I just wonder how the Lamy steel nib will react with the ink in the long term.
