    Default EFNIR: Nemosine Pleiades Blue/Black

    Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Nemosine Pleiades Blue/Black

    This is review #247 in my series. Here's the YouTube video:


    Post-recording notes: Cleaning was easy with plain water, but did require a few extra flushes because the dye is quite concentrated. The microscope smear was boring as can be with one blue and one black dye (apparently).

    Errata: "the traveled" should be "they traveled".

    Zoomed in photo (A bit too purple-leaning.)


    Screenshot (Text is too dark and desaturated (more blue should show).)


    Scan of Completed Review (This is the most accurate color.)


    Absorbent Paper Close-up (top is puzzle paper like thick newsprint, bottom is old 20lb copy paper) (Both seem a little too purple to me.)


    Line width (One of the lines used for dry time. Magnification is 100x. The grid is 100x100Ám. The scale is 330Ám, with eleven divisions of 30Ám each. The line width for this ink is roughly 300Ám. With 247 inks measured, the average line width is 296Ám.)


    Previous Review: Lamy Turquoise.

    Sorry - Essri is nervous. His lisp is worse. Afraid it's going to be that way for a while.

    Right? The good news is that it's not all that unique or special, so I think we'll survive. (All I have is a sample.)

    You're very welcome! Congratulations! Were it not for my Hobonichi, I'd never know what I'm supposed to be doing.

    Another fab review - thank you Liz, as always.

    It's a nice ink. If it were available, I'd probably get it. I don't think I can have too many blue blacks, and I have a feeling it might dilute nicely as well.

    I'm so in love with Essri (or Etthri)...

    It is definitely not possible to have too many blue-blacks! I wonder if Birmingham have this under another name - I believe it's the same guy making them.
