Another quickie ink review, on one type of paper only, while I'm testing my (Extra) Fine-nibbed pens and trying to figure out what I want to do with my full ink reviews...

fpn_1539146304__diamine_oxblood_on_rhodi

Flow: Well/'wet' enough, such that writing produced with the Platinum DP-1000AN with EF nib does not appear dry, and the differences in colour intensity from the various EF nibs I used are not as pronounced as with other inks.

Feathering: Effectively none on the Rhodia paper I used, even though the nib on the Sailor 11-0073-120 desk pen is so rough it tore through the coating on the surface of the paper, and got some fibres caught up between the tines a few times:

Bleedthrough: Effectively none on the Rhodia paper I used.

Drying time: Quick. After 10 seconds, smearing from rubbing with a dry fingertip was negligible.

Water resistance: Not much.

Shading: Not a whole lot from EF nibs, which is another testament to the ink being 'wet'.

Sheen: There is a much darker outline visible when excess ink dries on the page, but not so different in hue than the ink itself that I'd call it sheen.

Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. I believe we're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but no shared values and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative.

I just went back and re-read this post of mine in another thread on FPN.

It's possible to get more pronounced shading from this ink with a 'fine'/narrow nib, but it probably takes something with more of an edge or 'flat foot' in spite of being narrow in width.

Shading from a broader nib, while I'm testing the Pilot #5 Music (MS) nib:

regret I don't write, but did buy a bottle some year or so back, and would agree with the foregoing eulogies.             It's a colour/shade that carries a hint of antiquity, snobbery, and real classiness.                      If I was going to put pen to paper, then this might be the one. :)

I find it very satisfying. it's not very "blood" like. I'd say noodlers antietam really resembles dried blood best. But it is a perfect facsimile of comic book blood. I love this color so much, was the first large bottle of diamine I ever bought.

 

I concur that it REALLY loves stub nibs.
