Chrissy posted a topic in Ink ReviewsI 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 dryIt 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.
