Will there be refill bottles available? I don't need a glass bottle every time, just once. I hope Diamine will sell the 30 or 80 or 100ml plastic bottles once we have made the initial purchase. I really like most of these, though the brighter red/blue/green don't sing to me.

Diamine has done well with me for a while now, and the Blue-Black and Safari are definitely interesting me.

I'm looking forward to a few of these.  The Blue-Black looks similar to Iroshizuku Shin-Kai.  Regency Blue and Blue Velvet are the 2 I'd most likely get.

Nice ink reviews!

 

I just heard about these new inks this week. They'll be available in the US hopefully just before Christmas, with more to come in early 2015. The 40ml bottles will be available separately for $15 each here in the US. I'm glad it's not like the music or flowers set where you have to buy the full set - easy to replenish your favorite color!

For $15, it is not terrible, although I am not impressed at all with the Diamine inks I bought myself.  I am a sucker for special editions and cool bottles.

Wow. Most of these are lovely. I'm not usually a huge fan of Diamine colours but these are very nice. I think only Silver Fox and Tropical Green won't be coming home with me. Thank you for the head's up!

Thanks for the review! Terracotta looks gorgeous from my screen, I might just have to pick that up :D

Looks like someone may finally have made an ink close to MB Leonardo Red Chalk. Color me interested.

Terracotta, Safari, and Silver Fox look really great. Thanks for the heads-up about these!

I am curious to see Terracotta along MB Leonardo. I hope it's at least a poor's man substitute.

Official; just from Diamine.
The UK price is going to be £7.75 per bottle (including the 20% VAT) and they are NOT going to be Limited Edition!
There aren't any plans to introduce a plastic version - which I'm not surprised about.
Good news all round.

I don't need more blue inks, but darn. Two of those are beautiful. And Terracotta needs to be sampled, too.

Good to know on the price. Nice to know they are affordable. Hope Cult Pens stocks them soon (and restocks some other inks...).

I do wonder how the Safari compares to R&K Alt-Goldgrun, both in color and behavior.

Well, there goes my flimsy resolution to not buy any more ink until I've emptied a couple of bottles. The Regency Blue in particular is calling my name in no uncertain terms. Thanks for the review and photos!
