    Here we go - sorry for the delay.

    Dip pen, Kokuyo loose leaf paper, indirect sunlight. Swatch: dropped some ink on the paper and moved it around with the back of the nib. The images are bit more warm than reality but they capture the ink color well, I think.

    Oh, sorry! Hmm, I don't know why.

    Ooh! Thanks for re-uploading your writing sample. Nice color. Is the paper ivory or white?

    I am off to the wild blue yonder tomorrow and will be gone for a few days. Have fun everyone!

    More ivory for sure. But the photo white balance is too warm. Still, the ink color itself looks right on the different displays I have and with my eyes.

    Enjoy the yonder!

    I was going to ask if you could be more specific but I believe their other blue black, 202, is not iron gall.

    Incidentally, I've just ordered four different blue black inks from Ostrich, another Chinese company. Mostly because I'm super-curious. I know at least some of them are iron gall but I'm not sure which. The Museum blue black ink is scented with a teak odor.

    Roughly $14.50 for the four bottles - total of 223 ml of ink - hard to beat that!

    EDIT: I forgot that I communicated with Ostrich a couple years ago. They said that the blue blacks are all different formulations but all iron gall.

    Well done Yazeh!

    PP - I look forward to hearing your opinions on the various inks - I love blue blacks and those look very interesting.

    I imagine I will do a little demonstration/comparison.

    (I just noticed that the 'swatches' in their images are exactly the same sort-of random-appearing shape. )
