  1. My latest ink is Diamine Wild Strawberry As we are at the end of the first week of the Wimbledon grand slam tennis tournament, we now have British strawberries in our shops. So I picked Wild Strawberry as my ink to review today. Diamine Wild Strawberry is a really bright red. It's a very attractive red, without particularly leaning towards pink or orange. It's also a great performer in all of the pens and on all of the paper I tried it with. It's quite well saturated but I don't see much shading and I saw no noticeable sheen. It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping. The flow is excellent and it has great lubrication. Although the flow feels very slightly wet, it doesn't suffer from an overlong drying time. It has virtually no water resistance at all. The red inky water spread quickly. Nevertheless, I think it's a great bright red ink. It is very similar to Diamine Tulip from the Flowers Gift Set. Less pink than Diamine Classic Red, and a similar shade to Caran d'Ache Infra Red and Sheaffer Skrip Red. However, it's more saturated than those two red inks. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink,and shows no noticeable water resistance.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a Lamy M nib and a Lamy 1.1mm nib, this ink took 17-18 secs to dry. No smear after dry.It exhibited excellent flow and lubrication and I found it particularly 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.
