    Waterman Blue Black, I won't put anything else in vintage pens. Montblanc Midnight Blue in a more robust pen for "bulletproof" purposes.

    The only ink I have in multiple pens is Lamy Black.

    No love for Waterman Florida/Serenity Blue? I use a variety of inks, but that's the one I consider my standard ink. Every new-to-me pen is filled with this ink first.

    And Lamy Blue Black is my standard ink for envelopes.

    Nope.

    I don't use any single ink enough to call it a standard ink. I like change.

    One pen is always inked with an iron-gall ink,...usually Akkerman #10.
    This ink is one of the darker IG inks that still registers a nice blue, once it has aged a bit on the paper.
    My other favourites either turn too dark (MB Midnight, Diamine Registrars) or too light like R&K Salix. I love Salix though, for personal correspondence.
    I guess my standard is the Akkerman #10
    Make the best of each day & be thankful.....

    My not so amazing mix of one part Diamine Onyx Black and one part Diamine Majestic Blue. I use it a lot for work correspondence so it's always at least in one pen.

    +1 for Diamine Merlot, it's gorgeous!

    I would say WFB, but I don't have any at the moment. Not my favourite by any stretch of the imagination, but it always looks good, behaves, and is appropriate.

    Of the inks I have available, I wouldn't say any is a standard.

    Standard is quickly becoming 54th Massachusetts ink. Great characteristics and a great work color!

    What does the resulting color look like & how does it perform? I have Majestic and I dilute it with distilled water since the ink tends to clog my pens.

    Diamine Grey or Prussian blue - both quite muted but different!

    While I use a variety of inks and colors, my standard or go-to ink is Noodler's Black. With a little boost of Noodler's Old Manhattan Black, and even without the boost, it's Noodler's Black.

    And then, as I said, the other inks, colors - and this is why I can't have just one pen.

    In addition to all the other reasons.

    I enjoy many different inks and colors, but I always have a Plumix inked with Namiki Blue. It's such a nice happy color with some water resistance. Unfortunately it left a small ring around the bottom of the binde area of my White Tortoise that I just cannot get rid of, so I do not use it in any pen that can stain visibly.

    Namiki Black for me. The first ink that goes into every one of my pens, as I know it so well and it's so consistent. Desert island ink, it is.

    Funny coincidence: I was just thinking of mixing some Majestic Blue with Diamine Grey to sober it up a bit. I got a sample cart in one of the Diamine orders and I love it but I prefer muted colors. How does that mix perform?

    For a couple of weeks it has been Waterman Intense Black but Diamine Quartz Black will probably replace it (maybe Saddle Brown too?)

    I use Diamine Asa blue mainly, sometimes switch to Diamine Midnight. I have black ink, but I feel boring when I use black ink more than two days. I will clean my pen which fill with black ink and switch to another blue ink.
