Originally, I used Blue Ghost in my Lamy Vista F nib with Z24 converter. I previously put an ink not meant for fountain pens in it, and I think there is some residual particulates stuck in the section. I learned three things here:
- make sure to only use fountain pen inks in fountain pens.
- Notes written with Blue Ghost are quite legible using a Lamy F nib (which is fairly broad for its demarcation).
- Consider having a dedicated pen for this ink.
So, I decided to order an inexpensive Pilot Penmanship with EF nib from JetPens. Some people say Blue Ghost does better with a broader nib, so I was interested to see how it performed.
Blue Ghost is actually decently legible in a dark room with a black light using the very extra-fine Penmanship. However, something slightly broader like the Lamy F nib is plenty wide to easily read this ink.
All in all, I don’t use this ink often, but it is lots of fun to use and show off. People that normally are not excited about pens get excited with this ink.
