I have decided to review some inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order.

This one is from the latest Diamine 150th Anniversary inks 1864 Blue-Black. It's quite a saturated blue-black shade compared with Waterman Mysterious Blue. To my eyes it seems to contain more black than some other blue-blacks I have seen.

  • Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib was a medium, this ink took 15-16 secs to dry
  • It flows reasonably wet, and lubricates the nib OK I have used inks that have had better lubrication than this one.
  • It is currently available in 40ml cake slice shaped glass bottles.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

I like it. Too bad it isn't waterproof.

This is a very nice alternative to the Anniversary Regency Blue, which is a true dark blue rather than a blue-black. It would be interesting to compare it with Eclipse in Diamine's regular line.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.
