DA Magenta sheens a little bit more on Tomoe River. Apart from that there's barely a difference:

Perhaps someone mentioned it before, but Sailor Jentle Oku-Yama has very close doppelgängers in the threefoldness of Diamine's dark red inks - Oxblood, Red Dragon and Syrah. I cannot quite pinpoint which ink is the closest, that changes depending on the pen and paper I'm using, but I'd say that Oxblood is perhaps the least similar out of all three because of its lack of sheen. Oku-Yama is kind of in-between Oxblood and Syrah, so it would make sense to call Red Dragon closest, but even that one still lacks the deep red and violet hues that Oxblood and Syrah, respectively, have too much of. Looking at my swabs on Tomoe River, Syrah actually comes closest in both colour and sheen (and the colour of the sheen), but in writing it's too violet. It would make sense to mix the Diamines to get the perfect colour match for Oku-Yama, and then maybe let it evaporate a bit to get more sheen out of the new mixture.

Sailor probably have several of the (basically same) red inks. Here's Irori (top) and Kobe #20 Motomachi Rouge (bottom):

Doppelgängers: Diamine Communication Breakdown vs KWZ Ink Red #1

Unless you look for the sheen of the Diamine at an angle, the two are indistinguishable.

It's the golden sheen that tells them apart.

Wow! I've been eyeing both, so you just saved me some €!

Which one would you prefer in terms of flow and lubrication (and other properties) if you could only keep one?

Definitely the KWZI (I mentioned it in my individual reviews).

I love to look at red inks, but not usually flowing out of my own pens... :D

Your doodle is lovely. It inspires me to pick up whole-page doodling again... so thanks for that, too!

I find that even if you suck at drawing things (like me), full page doodles always look impressive!
