  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. Today I'm reviewing Diamine Skull & Roses ink. Diamine Skull & Roses is a Diamine Exclusive ink made specially for sale in Germany. I’ve seen it for sale on “Fountainfeder” and on “Papier & Stift” websites as well as on Amazon. I only have a sample bottle, so I can’t post a picture of the 80ml glass bottle. This is a saturated dark blue ink with red sheen. It doesn’t have quite as much sheen as the Organics Studio high sheen inks, but has more sheen than what you would call a “standard” ink. In my opinion, Diamine Sargasso Sea is a similar standard ink that you could compare wi
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. The inks are released in full bottles of 50ml, the shimmer inks priced at €10.95 and the normal at €7.95. See the bottles and ink swabs here https://www.lacouronneducomte.nl/webstore/main/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=diamine%20ink-vent&language=nl&utm_source=nieuwsbrief20200319&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=diamine_inkvent_nl Saw it first by lurking on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/fl5nsc/diamine_inkvent_released_as_full_size_bottles/ https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/fl5kxz/diamine_release_2019_inkvent_calendar_inks_in/
  6. Today I'm reviewing Diamine Majestic Blue A medium to dark blue ink from the standard range, Diamine Majestic Blue seems to be discussed more frequently than most other Diamine inks. Many love it's strong blue colour and red sheen, while some report problems like it stains hands and pens. I must admit I haven't written with it for ages and am guilty of letting my half full, old style 80ml bottle, sit around, unused, in a box. I took it out and examined it carefully. First I tipped it upside down and can report there was no sign of any sludge in the bottom of the bottle. Then I turned it up

  8. I think this just started today. I've wanted to test out some Diamine inks. I think this is a decent way to do it . . . a 5 pack for $25.99 https://www.massdrop.com/buy/diamine-30-ml-ink?utm_source=linkshare&referer=JQZE4E
  9. Today I'm reviewing Diamine November Rain ink. Diamine November Rain is a Diamine Exclusive ink made specially for sale in Germany. I’ve seen it for sale on Fountainfeder, Papier & Stift and Seitz-Kreuznach websites as well as on Amazon. It comes in 30ml bottles and 80ml bottles. I only have a sample bottle, so I can’t post a picture of the 80ml glass bottle and box. This is a saturated dark green ink with red sheen. It doesn’t have quite as much sheen as the Organics Studio high sheen inks, but has more sheen than what you would call a “standard” ink. In my opinion, Diamine don’t have
  10. Today I'm reviewing Diamine Imperial Purple ink Imperial Purple is a true purple that leans more towards the blue side of the colour spectrum. It’s an ink from the standard Diamine ink range. It’s a saturated ink that can show a little shading with finer nibs. I found it flowed well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt neither wet nor dry, and it’s lubrication was nice and smooth across the page. My review was written on cheap printer paper, that is quite absorbent, and I saw no spread or show-through. The lines were crisp and it dried quickly. On Field Notes paper it didn’t spread or feat

    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

    Ink Review: Diamine Turquoise

    My latest ink is Diamine Turquoise As I said in my review for Diamine Havasu Turquoise I have been collecting turquoise inks and samples since I bought a bottle of Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea. There are several inks that are a good alternative for that deleted ink. The best match I have found so far is Kaweco Paradise Blue and I will be posting a review of that ink soon. Diamine Turquoise is another good replacement if you want a blue turquoise. It's lighter and comes across as slightly less saturated than Havasu Turquoise, and that makes it more like a turquoise ink than a sky blue ink. I'm no

    Ink Review: Diamine Sepia

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Sepia ink. Sepia usually means a reddish brown colour, named after the rich brown pigment derived from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish Sepia. Sepia was commonly used as writing ink in Greco-Roman civilisation and remained in common use until 19th century. Diamine Sepia is an unsaturated, yellowish brown, dye based ink. Its from Diamine Inks standard range. Diamine Sepia is lighter and more yellow than both Diamine Autumn Oak and Warm Brown. Its also lighter and less saturated than Diamine Ochre. I found it an interesting ink to write with. With my B

    Ink Review: Diamine Coral

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Coral ink. Diamine Coral is from the standard ink range. It’s an interesting colour. Bright and vibrant. Think the colour of cooked salmon, a pink that’s almost orange. Or an orange that is almost pink. Although it’s not a dark colour it’s still a saturated ink. I found it flowed very well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt quite wet to write with, and it’s lubrication was nicely smooth across the page. I noticed nice shading, plus an element of pinkish sheen that seems to have a halo effect around the ink. My review was written on 100gsm smooth coated
  16. Today I'm reviewing Diamine Brilliant Red ink. Diamine Brilliant Red is a mid-red dye based ink that could be viewed as a “standard daily red.” It’s neither too pink nor too orange and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Diamine Brilliant Red isn’t a heavily saturated red, it’s less saturated than Diamine Poppy Red and Sheaffer Skrip Red, but it’s that type of bright red. I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with and I saw some shading particularly with the finer nibs. It looked more saturated with my Lamy B nib. Lubrication was good, and it felt smooth writing across all of

    Ink Review: Diamine Orange

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Orange ink. Diamine Orange is a saturated orange dye based ink that I think is the perfect orange. It neither leans towards the yellow end of the colour spectrum, nor the red end of the colour spectrum and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Diamine Orange is a well named ink. It does “what it says on the jar” absolutely spot on orange. More orange than Blaze Orange and Sailor Jentle Apricot, but not quite as “retina searing” as Pumpkin. I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with, although it felt very slightly dryer than Coral and Peach Haze. Lubricat

    Ink Review: Diamine Peach Haze

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Peach Haze ink. Diamine Peach Haze is a saturated orange dye based ink with a slight pinkness about it. It’s a well-named peach or apricot colour and is from Diamine Inks standard range. Peach Haze is more orange than Diamine Coral, Noodler’s Dragon’s Napalm and P.I. Fuyu gaki, but more pink than Diamond Orange, Noodler’s Operation Overlord Orange and P.I. Yu yake inks. I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with, although it felt slightly dryer than Coral. Lubrication was reasonable, but I would have liked more. No shading or sheen noticed. Flow Rate: Go

    Ink Review: Diamine Violet

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Violet ink. Diamine Violet is a typical violet purple that leans slightly more blue than red, but is a really attractive colour. It’s an ink from the standard Diamine ink range. Compared with some other lavender/lilac/violet inks it’s a more saturated ink than it first looked, and it can show plenty of shading with fine or medium nibs. I found it flowed well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt slightly wet, and it’s lubrication was really nice and smooth across the page. My review was written on coated printer paper, that isn’t very absorbent, and I saw no

    Ink Review: Diamine Macassar

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Macassar A dark brown ink from the standard range. The word ‘macassar’ means a kind of oil that men formerly used on their hair to make it shine and lie flat. Makassar is a spelling variant. Makassar is also a former name of Ujung Pandang, a seaport on SW Sulawesi in central Indonesia. Flow Rate: Very good. Quite wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.Lubrication: Good with the M nib on several different papers, a bit more would have been nice with the Safari F nib.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Good.Shading Potential: Some seen wi

    Ink Review: Diamine Monaco Red

    This is my review of Diamine Monaco Red. I decided to try a sample of this ink because I happened to be browsing on Goulets Pens web-site and noticed that it is one of their selections for their group of red inks. It's the type of 'blood' red I like, not too far along the orange scale and not too far along the blue scale. It has a hint of brownness to it, but is less brown than Oxblood. I have almost finished regrinding my Mb Boheme nib from a B to something less broad, although I'm not absolutely sure what it is yet. However, I wanted to try writing with it so I filled a cartridge with this

    Ink Review: Diamine Aqua Blue

    Yesterday I posted a review of Diamine Beau Blue ink Today I'm reviewing a much brighter, more saturated ink within the same colour range: Diamine Aqua Blue I would describe it as a bright cerulean blue, or cornflower blue. It leans very slightly towards the green edge of the blue colour spectrum like Waterman Inspired Blue and J. Herbin Blue Pervenche and it's very saturated with wonderful shading and a great 'halo' outline effect. No noticeable sheen. It felt really wet in my Lamy Al-Star with B nib, and because the B nib lays down more ink, the colour looks darker and shows up more shading
  24. My latest ink samples from Diamine include Passion Red, so that's the ink I'm reviewing today. It'a a bright red, as you would expect. It leans more towards the pinkish side of the colour spectrum than Wild Strawberry and Classic Red, and it never looks orange. If you're being romantic, maybe it looks like a red blush in the cheeks or on the neck? Diamine Passion Red is a bright red. It's a very good performer in all of the pens and on all of the paper I tried it with. It's reasonably saturated but I don't see much shading and I saw no noticeable sheen. It wrote straight away without any har
