  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 experienced no problems while I was using it, no skips or hard starts, and it didn't dry out on the nib while I was doing swab tests. So for me it's a well-behaved ink It felt slightly wetter when I changed from the F nib to the M nib, and then the B nib. It seems to get darker when the nib is broader. The dry time on all of the papers I used was 10-12 secs. Once dry there was no smearing. It isn't sold as water resistant, but after I soaked the patch then blotted off the water, there was still enough ink left to show the original diagram. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink, but shows some water resistance.Bearing in mind the review form paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used Lamy F, M and B nibs this ink took 10-12 secs to dry using the M nib. No smear after dry.It exhibited quite good flow and I found it reasonably smooth to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.
