This Blue Almost Ends the Search!
The search for the perfect blue fountain pen ink! Many of us have been there at some point, However, years ago I acquired a bottle of Private Reserve's Naples Blue ink. I find many of their choices to be good performers and beautiful colors. I pulled out the bottle and inked a pen--my Visconti Starry Night. I was very impressed--the color is most similar to Kon Peki from Pilot Iroshizuku, and Waterman's Inspired Blue. The color is saturated and brilliant on the page, and neither too wet, nor too dry. The flow seems great and I appear to never tire from using it. In fact, my home desk and at the office each bears a bottle for quick refilling. I really like and recommend this ink highly. Now, working with Brian and Lisa Anderson is a joy. These are fountain pen people--they know their business, and offer fair prices, and excellent service. Thank you Lisa and Brian for always raising the bar of performance!
