  1. Today I'm reviewing Diamine Prussian Blue A blue-grey or blue-black ink from the standard range, Diamine Prussian Blue is a nicely saturated colour with a vintage look to it. It’s darker, less green leaning and more saturated than Indigo, and it flows better and feels more lubricated when writing across the page. Prussian Blue was the first modern synthetic pigment. It’s a dark blue pigment also known as Berlin Blue or, in painting, Parisian or Paris Blue. It’s prepared as a very fine colloidal dispersion because the compound is not soluble in water. Prussian Blue is also the traditional “
  2. I posted a review of the Kaweco AL Sport Stonewashed Blue pen in the pen reviews forum. Here. I am now adding a separate review of the Kaweco Midnight Blue ink that I used in that pen. I used a cartridge, and the AL Sport Stonewashed Blue pen has a F steel nib. Kaweco ink comes in 30ml bottles and packs containing 6 standard international sized cartridges. This Midnight Blue is lighter than some other blue-black inks, but it's a really well behaved dark blue, and it has some lovely shading. It isn't waterproof, but was reasonably water resistant. I moved the water around with my finger, then b
  3. Today I'm reviewing Cult Pens Deep Dark Blue ink. Cult Pens Deep Dark Blue is one of the 6 inks in the “Deep Dark” range that are made for Cult Pens by Diamine Inks. Deep Dark Blue is a very saturated ink that can show a little shading with finer nibs, and some great red sheen. I found it flowed very well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt quite wet, and it’s lubrication was really smooth across the page. It’s a really deep, dark blue and lives up to it’s name very well. It’s darker than all of my dark blue comparison inks, only Diamine 1864 Blue-Black was darker. I predict that this ink
  4. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Shimmering Seas This ink is blue-black with a great gold 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 gently agitate t
  5. I ordered this ink on impulse. I was re-ordering a bottle of Skrip Black, which I find works well in almost every pen. At the same time, I was experiencing frustration finding just the right ink for my Stipula Etruria Mila Gold Rush. I found some inks that behaved well but were not the color I wanted, and some with colors I liked with this pen but were (mostly) too wet, even pretty dry inks like Diamine Prussian Blue which was close but not perfect. So, I added Skrip Blue-Black to my shopping cart. Not a major investment, and I was sure it would get used in other pens, if it didn't do the job

    A Mixture Blue-Black Ink

    In my quest of blue-black inks , I have acquired Parker Quink blue-black (latest formulation ), Pelikan 4001 blue-black (earlier version) ,and Pelikan 4001blue-black (latest version) ,and found none of them satisfactory to my visual appeal , I mean the "exact" blue-black for me. However, Pelikan latest formulation was closer, but not entirely satisfactory. Therefore, I decided to mix parker blue-black (present formulation) 3 equal parts with Parker black (present formulation) 1 part. These were bottled inks, no cartridges. I am presenting my result as a very informal and personal review for c

    Ink Review: Diamine Twilight

    I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Twilight. I would call it a blue-black ink. It leans more towards the green portion of the colour spectrum than some dark blues like Tchaikovsky, Regency Blue and Midnight. It's more like a darker version of Prussian Blue, or Eau de Nil that both have green tones in them. It's a well behaved, quite saturated ink with a little shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in both of the pens I used. I think it looks better in the Lamy Nexx

    Ink Review: Diamine Eclipse

    I thought I would get a sample of Diamine Eclipse to see what it was like. It looks black in the bottle, but I see it as an almost black blue-black. It is leaning towards the end of the blue range of the spectrum, so that it almost goes into blue-violet, but I don't see purple in it. Just a very dark blue-black. I think it's name fits it very well. The inky blackness of a night sky that has a faint hue of blue about it. As someone who isn't a fan of black, grey or blue-black ink, I was surprised to find myself liking it. For me it's better than black as it has that very dark blue tint in it.
