Some of you were excited a year ago when we announced that we’d be carrying Omas ink, because of the famously beautiful, dark Omas Blue. This ink was pretty much the reason we wanted to carry Omas ink at all. But from the very first batch we received, there were inconsistencies with the color. We opted not to sell the ink until we could figure out what was going on. And now, a year later, we finally have consistent colors coming in (with assurance of ongoing quality).
The fact we’re getting in consistent color is good, but it is a different color than the dark Omas Blue that had originally drawn us to it. And that’s what this blog post is all about, to let you know the color has changed. Here is the new (left) vs. old (right) Omas Blue:
I haven’t inked it up to see if the performance is any different, but I thought at a minimum I could let the world know about the color change.
Here are some ink color comparisons to the “Old” Omas Blue:
And here are the inks that look like the “New” Omas Blue:
What do you think of the change?
