  1. 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 p

    Ink Review: Diamine Meadow

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Meadow ink. Diamine Meadow is an unsaturated, yellowish green, dye based ink. Its from Diamine Inks standard range. This is a darker and greener shade than J.Herbin Vert Pré/Apple scented and P.I. Chiku rin, and a lighter and less gold/brown shade than R&K Alt. Goldgrün and Sailor Waka uguisu. In fact I dont have an ink really similar as a comparison. I found it quite an unusual ink to write with. Sometimes it shaded a lot and felt wet and lubricated, particularly with my M and B nibs, yet when I first used it in my Lamy 2000 with F nib, it felt drier and
  3. My latest ink samples from Diamine include one of their 150th Anniversary inks: Safari So that's the ink I'm reviewing today. It's what fountain pen inks users might describe as a 'murky green ink'. These 'murky green' coloured inks are becoming more and more popular, especially at this time of the year. Diamine Safari is more green than Salamander, Noodler's VMail Burma Road Brown and Montblanc Racing Green, although it can occasionally look a little more brownish on some papers, depending on the nib used. It's a good performer in all of the pens and on all of the paper I tried it with. It'
  4. I’m reviewing samples of the new set of Diamine Shimmer inks. This one is Diamine Golden Ivy It’s a strong, saturated, dark ivy green ink with some nice shading and sheen as well as gold shimmer. It’s a similar shade to Diamine Tropical Green (150th Anniversary) but leans more green and slightly less blue than that ink. I found it a very wet and well flowing ink. It had very good lubrication with the pens I tried it with. With broader nibs it looks much more saturated than it does with finer nibs, although it’s wet enough to show the gold shimmer with all nibs. It showed through on so
  5. This is a fairly quick review, so that I can get up some reviews of the 8 new Diamine inks for you to look at. I haven't tried them all on lot's of different papers yet, but that will come later. Yesterday I was writing with them in my British Mebin Notebook that is made from the thicker version of Tomoe River paper. I think it's something like 65gsm compared with thinner Tomoe River that is 58gsm. It's still really smooth paper, so dry times are very long for these wet inks. It's a cream paper, and inks don't show through on there as much as they do on the regular version of Tomoe River.

    Ink Review: Diamine Evergreen

    Today I’m reviewing a sample of Diamine Evergreen It’s an unusual dark green. When you write with it or swab it, it looks like a dark petrol blue, but then it dries very quickly to a dark green. I found it had good flow and lubrication while I was writing with it. I didn’t see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line with the Pelikan F nib. With the Lamy M nib it looks much darker, more like what you would imagine Evergreen to look like. When I tested it on the selection of papers, it looks darker on them all than it actually came out when scanned. When I took a photo it just looked

    Ink Review: Diamine Cool Green

    Today I’m reviewing a sample of Diamine Cool Green It’s an interesting greenish/turquoise. This shade reminds me of my Viridian Green pigment. I found it had good flow while I was writing with it. I didn’t see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line with the F nib. I saw a couple of signs of woolly line on the Oxford paper and when I first started writing on the Midori paper with the wet Jinhao M nib. However, that nib had just been dipped into the ink. Sadly, on the review form, I managed to get some water from the water test to run all the way across the page before I blotted it. S
  8. Today I’m reviewing a sample of Diamine Green Umber It’s an interesting green, with added blue (and brown in the chroma test.) I think green umber is a good description of the colour. I found it had good flow while I was writing with it. I didn’t see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line. When I first started writing the review form I had just filled the cleaned pen. It became slightly darker in colour when left in the pen for a few hours. At first I found it looked less saturated but after a while it looked more and more saturated, especially with my broader nibs. It also exhibit
  9. I've heard that the release date for these new inks is 4th November; Fountain Pen Day, so I'm posting separate reviews for them on here. I assume they will come in the same type of bottles as the previous set of shimmer inks, but I haven't seen the retail bottles yet. Currently I only have samples that Diamine very kindly sent me to test, and to review 'if I wanted to', but I've noticed that my samples don't need much shaking to mix the particles in, and the pens need very little shaking once they are filled.Generally speaking, I found all 12 of these new shimmer inks to be wetter than all of
  10. I've recently reviewed 3 golden or brownish Diamine inks; Amber, Golden Brown and Antique Copper, so now I'm moving onto a couple of greens that I have. This one is Kelly Green. I know it's a popular bright green, but this is the first time I have ever tried it. It is my understanding that it was named by FPN's Ann Finley I'm not usually a fan of light green inks, especially when I can't read them easily on paper, but this one was a pleasant surprise in that respect. It is dark enough to read easily, while still being a bright green ink. The best of both worlds. It's noticeably darker and eas
  11. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's pretty old. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/540/cKbAUr.jpg
