I'm finally getting around to reviewing Lamy Blue Black, which I've had forever. I got a bottle of it free with a pen purchase from Goulet Pens quite a while ago, and haven't used it much since. This week I decided to dig the bottle out of the rabbit hole that is my ink cabinet and give it another shot.
Blue Black is a bit on the grey side of blue black.
In large swabs there is a little bit of coppery sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
Overall, it's a nice neutral, affordable, basic ink.
