  1. I decided to review this ink sample as it isn't long before the new POTUS will be inaugurated. So this is Diamine Presidential Blue This is a medium range blue, an everyday sort of blue that you could use at home or in the office. I expected it to be darker than it writes. Although it doesn't look like it leans either red or purple like many Royal Blue types, it's chroma test reveals a little violet dye as well as the blue dye. So there is some violet in there. It exhibits plenty of shading, with no noticeable sheen, and feels slightly drier than some other inks I've used recently. I experien
  2. My latest ink is Diamine Kensington Blue I'm reviewing two similar Diamine blue inks separately, this one, Kensington Blue, and Florida Blue. They are quite similar, but Kensington Blue is a more general blue, a more muted colour. I would call it an everyday blue ink. Kensington Blue is a very good blue ink. It flowed beautifully while I was writing with it, and lubricated the nib so well that it wrote smoothly across the page. I really enjoyed writing with it. Although it felt nicely wet to write with, it was a quick drying ink. Although this isn't a waterproof ink, it shows good water

    Blue Inks In A Mb 146 Broad

    Bonjour - having experienced some stops / drying out with BayState Blue in a 146 90th anniversary edition Broad nib, I tried some other inks in addition to the bottle of J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir on hand. The Éclat de Saphir looks the most vibrant after BSB, then MB Royal Blue. Thanks for your thoughts.
  4. My latest ink is Diamine Florida Blue I'm reviewing two similar Diamine blue inks separately, this one, Florida Blue, and Kensington Blue. They are quite similar, but Florida Blue is a brighter colour. It used to be known as Tropical Blue Florida Blue is a very pleasant bright blue without being a turquoise type. It flowed beautifully while I was writing with it, and lubricated the nib so well that it wrote smoothly across the page. I really enjoyed writing with it. Although this isn't a waterproof ink, it shows good water resistance, as do many Diamine blue inks.Bearing in mind the pap

    Bril Royal Blue

    I had a chance to try out Bril Royal Blue thanks to Vaibhav Mehandiratta's generous giveaway last year. I found the ink to be a gentle shade of blue that behaved wonderfully well in all the pens I tried. The ink does just what you'd want: flows nicely, doesn't feather, drys pretty quickly and shades well with broader nibs. In short, it is a pleasure to use. On copier paper, it's tough to distinguish from Waterman Serenity Blue. In a TSWBI notebook, the ink drys to a lighter shade of blue. For me, the color is rather subdued and careful and would be fine for work or school. It's not water

    Parker Vacumatics And Blue Inks

    Hello everyone! I have a very specific question; what blue ink is safe in a parker vacumatic. I am not ocd about cleaning out my pens and am sometimes forced to write on cheap paper. Thanks! -a first time poster
  8. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Blue Lightning. This ink is bright cerulean blue type with a great silver sheen My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you g

    I've Got The Blues

    Servus* FPN Friends This is a quick comparison of the blue inks I currently own. It's nothing fancy not a full test, but I hope it is still amusing I also made a quick test of the water resistance... But then again it's just a quick test... Extensive reviews of the inks will be posted soon. I like all the blues posted. Some are more smooth, some are dry some are wet, but that's all for a more extensive review... It is not completely fair to compare the water resistance of the De Atramentis inks with the other inksin the review. The De Atrmanentis inks are document inks for doctors
