It is possible, I suppose. Here are the two scans I did; as and when I got the inks so there is a bit of a time gap between them. As with all my scans though; once they are done they stay in the dark, as it were.

First the 'original one.


I can see the teal in this!

Then the R2 version.


I think there is a significant difference. There is another ink that falls somewhere in between - Diamine Twilight.


And there you have it - my two-penneth worth.

Mine looks a bit darker than the first one (then again it's in a medium nib with a fairly fast flow, so perhaps it would) but is definitely closer to that than the second one.  Probably old stock then.  Thanks for that, a very fast helpful response!

The Diamine Blue-Black R2 looks very similar, if perhaps a bit llghter, than the Diamine Denim I am currently using with great success in my Snorkel. More like a dark blue, less like a blue-black.


Completely agree! So close to Denim that I wouldn't rush out to buy it. Maybe when my Denim runs out I may give it a go, but for now, i'll pass...
