Monday Matchup #51: Platinum Cool Crystal Blue Medium with J. Herbin Bleu Azur

We didn't need our moms and dads to tell us that Frank Sinatra was cool. His voice and presence were and are instantly timeliness. Babies and nonagenarians alike perk up at the sound of "Fly Me to the Moon" or the recorded B&W image of the late Ol' Blue Eyes himself.

He was The Voice, The Chairman of the Board, and a part of the Rat Pack -- the real "Oceans 11" Rat Pack that will always trump George Clooney and Brad Pitt's weak copycat shtick. (We'd have loved to have seen Sinatra and Clooney in a '40s style boxing match, engaging in dramatic fisticuffs while both in their prime. We'll bet on the one with the mob ties.)

In Monday Matchup, Fulfillment Team Manager Adam shows great reverence for The Sultan of Swoon -- we almost forgot a nickname -- with a Platinum Cool Crystal Blue Medium and J. Herbin Bleu Azur ink. Platinum could have called its sleek and transparent pen The Sinatra. As for the ink, it's the ideal shade of blue for the most famous eyes in the biz.

The Platinum Cool Crystal Blue Medium is available at GouletPens.com for $42.40. J. Herbin Bleu Azur ink is available in a 30ml bottle for $11 or as a 2ml ink sample for $1.25.

  1. It says the 30ml bottle of ink is available on the website for $30 when I think it should be $11.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! We fixed it. :)

  3. Great drawing Adam! I love what you did with the pen. The Platinum Cool is a favorite pen of mine, a wonderful writer. Another special addition of my Monday afternoon.

  4. It's at times like this I wish Australia was closer to you lot!
    A fantastic selection of pens, and that ink is awe inspiring.....
    Unfortunately, unless I can put together an order of around $200-$300 I doubt I could justify the postage :(
    Perhaps if I'm visiting the US I will get you to send stuff to where I'm staying.....
