Still looking but close to perfect
At the Commonwealth Pen Show in Boston, MA in 2016 Nathan Tardis of Noodler's Inks brought to the show a few bottles of "North Star Liberator", a very expensive to manufacture true-blue ink. As far as I know, Nathan has not manufactured North Star Liberator since 2016 and this makes me very sad as I have sampled gallons of different blue inks and so far, nothing comes close. I love Baystate Blue, but it is a very vibrant and saturated blue, not necessarily a true-blue. Eclat de Saphir is no where even close to a true-blue but after being disappointed time after time sampling blue ink, I discovered I enjoy Eclat de Saphir almost, but not quite as much as North Star Liberator.
