    Default Bright Blue....

    What ink is the closest in color to Baystate Blue? A bright blue that is relatively fast drying, but without the issues that seem to come with Baystate.
    Thanks!

    Maybe this link would help...
    I'Ve had BSB for a year in a cheap pen. It works fine. But it's not the best behaved Noodler
    The thing with Baystate is that you need to have a dedicated pen for it.
    I believe Herbin's Éclat de Sapphire can be good alternative....
    I would recommend you get several samples of vibrant blues and even one of Baystate, you never know

    I would have said Visconti Blue - and InkSwatch.com agrees!

    Iroshizuku Asa-gao has the same purple tint, but is obviously not as eye-searing.
    Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

    You could try Lamy blue. Looks great in a broad nib with a purplish cast. Can look faded in a fine nib, so your mileage may vary.

    J.Herbin Eclat de Safir might work but I think it leans more purple and is less saturated than Noodler's BB. Brian Goulet mentions that ink in his video Q&A slice about Noodler's BB.



    Most of the inks on the FPN comparison look fairly similar to each other then Noodler's BB is a significantly brighter example alone at the bottom of the image. It has more red in it than the other inks.

    Inks that I have that lean more red are PR Electric DC Blue, Visconti Blue and Diamine Sargasso Sea. Maybe Diamine Cornflower. I have a few blues (understatement of the year LOL) so when I have a moment I'll get my NBB out and compare it with some of my newer ones.

    I found this previous thread where I posted some blue ink swabs but I have more now so it might need updating
