The Diamine Blue Velvet...

The Diamine Blue Velvet ink is another winner. With a dense pigment the color is deep blue without being watery. It dries quickly, which is important to lefties--no smears on the outside of my hand! I recommend this ink.

I had such a hard time...

I had such a hard time finding the color blue i wanted and I finally found it here. I even order 6 at on time once I tried it. The ink is super smooth to write with a dip pen and the rich color is amazing. It's a true blue not purple or light blue or slight green just a beautiful riyal blue. The problem is that it bleeds and feathers on some paper. You need to experiment in what paper to use it on. I don't always use quality calligraphy paper but still wish it held together a little better. It's not water proof either but for the quality and beauty of the color, i really don't care. I found a gorgeous color with and quality maker and I still wouldn't trade it.

Oh my what a lovely ink! I'm left handed and there is always concern about smudging but thus ink performed beautifully.
The ink blot of the color doesn't do it justice, you just have to see it on the paper for yourself. I will be looking at the other colors as well.
Although it is close...

Although it is close to Diamine's standard royal blue ink, 150th Anniversary Blue Velvet is more intense, it seems brighter, and the flow is absolutely smooth with beautiful saturation. This is my new, go-to blue writing ink (I am now using Sailor's Storia Night Blue light-fast ink for drawing).
