    Default Sheaffer Skrip Blue

    I am curious as to why there is so little discussion about the Slovenian-made Skrip Blue Ink. I recently purchased several bottles of the recently made Slovenian-made Skrip Blue. I was pleasantly surprised to find this to be some of the best ink I have used; it flows freely, does not feather much, and the color is quite saturated. The prior USA made ink, while it flowed well and did not stain, was quite weak and pale in color. I am interested in hearing other individual's experience with this ink

    Thanks!

    I'll only say that all my bottles of Sheaffer are vintage, so I really don't know what the new stuff is like. I would say is it mostly due to two things: lack of strong marketing (as Sheaffer slowly fades away) and the ridiculous explosion of new and varied inks. All the people that are coming to the table these days... well, I think they are swayed and interested by more than a very basic blue ink.

    You make me want to try a bottle!

    Further to Jon's point regarding very basic blue ink...if that's all I want, I'm probably not going to hum and haw about Waterman vs Sheaffer vs Parker vs Cross, etc. I'll take whatever 87 octane unleaded blue is the cheapest...or at eye level...or has the most reusable bottle.

    That said, I enjoy Sheaffer red. Maybe the blue should be on my list when I next see a bottle?

    Sheaffer blue will come all the way from Slovenia.
