Today I'm reviewing Diamine Apple Glory ink. Diamine Apple Glory is a nicely saturated bright green dye based ink that leans slightly more towards the blue range of the spectrum than the yellow range. It’s a summery, bright, grassy green colour and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Diamine Apple Glory leans slightly less blue that Diamine Ultra Green and is a very similar colour to J.Herbin Lierre Sauvage, but is more saturated. Kaweco Palm Green and the old discontinued Caran d’Ache Colours of the Earth Amazon are also very similar colours. Flow Rate: Very good. Felt quite wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.Lubrication: Good - It felt smooth across the page in the pens I used.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Saturated inkShading Potential: Some shading seen with F and M nibs.Sheen: None seen.Show-Through:Royal recycledOxford paperField NotesTomoe River 52gsmGeneric 80gsm lined padsSpread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen, even on Field Notes.Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.Staining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap.Clogging: Not seen.
