  1. Hello, I was just wondering if it’s just me or do you guys have a specific pen for a specific notebook? This ink color for this pen color only? I use my pilot kakunos (M,F,EF) with colors black, gris nuage, diamine grey, respectively, for my midori notebook journal. My kawecosport (BB) in the shade earl grey for midori everyday journal. 2 Kawecosport (EF) using Vinta in the shade perya and ubi for midori and rhodia notes. Kaweco perkeo (M) using smokey grey for random scribbles and midori travel journal. Am I the only one? Lol

    What is a "sheen" ink?

    I had a friend write me with Diamine "smoke on the water", produced in Liverpool but only available in Germany - go figure! It seems to be basically two colours that don't mix and come out the nib as two colours. It is described as a "sheen" ink. What is a sheen ink and how do they work?

    Quick Grey Comparison

    Put them next to other colours and they're just grey; put them next to each other and the differences become pronounced. In this scan you can see my current selection of grey inks next to each other: Diamine Silver Fox (my basic clear grey, the one I chose over Diamine Grey and Herbin Gris Nuage), Diamine Earl Grey (the new kid on the block that triggered this new exploration), Iroshizuku fuyu-syogun and Diamine Graphite (an ink that I had tried and abandoned but with fond memories that made me get a new 30 ml bottle). I've given up trying to correct scans and monitors concerning colo
  5. Earlier in 2020, Diamine released the 25 ink colours that it produced and included in its Inkvent (2019 advent calendar) product as separate retail products in four-legged 50ml Blue Edition bottles. The inks in the series are categorised as standard, sheening, and shimmering — and each is priced accordingly. Seasons Greetings is one of the sheening inks. Base colour: Dark teal Flow: Moderate Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper, looking closely at the thinnest hatching lines, and w

    Diamine Blue/Black – a lazy review

    Close-up: Colour: Blue-black, as advertised; without being goes-down-blue, then-turns-black like iron-gall blue-black inks typically would, because as far as I'm aware this is a plain/standard dye ink without any iron-gall component (and with no water resistance) Flow: Slightly on the dry side of moderate, perhaps, on account of my being able to see a fainter line being left by the nib's slit along the broadest strokes Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper, looking closely at the thinnest hatching lines, and words/glyphs ‘reverse-written’ wit

    In Search Of Holy Grail Greens!

    I've got a couple of Rangas and a very tightly-tined nib on a TWSBI that I like to fill with wow greens. I am searching for wet, lubricating inks that will help these pens flow. I like saturated colors, maybe some shade and sheen, and even some water resistance. Noodler's Eel Gruene has been my go to, but I'm not nuts about the color. (I prefer bright greens, nothing Army shaded with grays and blacks.) I've tried Diamine Woodland, KWZ Emerald. What else does the world offer? Unlike Veruca Salt, whose image I'm not allowed to post, I won't scream if I don't get it, but I will keep looking
  8. It seems Diamine enjoys celebrating its anniversary. This year they added another eight inks to their line of 150th anniversary inks. The inks are sold in nice and quitye comfortable in use triangular bottles. I can't say I'm thrilled with this one. It behaves well on most papers. The flow is good and the ink feels wet - just as I like it. The thing is color is boring and unisnpiring. It has zero water resistance. On some paper (Tomoe River) sheen is visible.

    Diamine Classic Green

    Another new winner from Diamine:
  10. I am always hunting inexpensive notebooks or legal pads that are fountain pen friendly for my work. I have been, for the most part, disappointed by the cheap quality of the paper on most pads and notebooks for everyday use. Last night, I spotted a display of these "new" notebooks that boast a high quality paper that resists ink bleed. At $1.97 per notebook, I decided to purchase a couple. A Quick Review of the new Five Star Coillege Ruled Notebook by Acco Brands in A5-related size: This notebook is made in the U.S, and is Number 11231. It has a 2 subject divider and a colorful cover.

    Classic Green - Diamine

    Manufacturers since 1864, Diamine Inks relocated to this purpose built 'state of the art' factory in Liverpool in 1925, where they successfully carried on using the traditional methods and formulas for ink production. Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course http://www.diamineinks.co.uk/images/DimaineFactory.gif http://www.diaminein...uk/AboutUs.aspx Classic Green is one of two new inks in Diamine line. The color is quite interesting although I'm not sure what's classic about it. Depending on the pen and nib shade chan

    Diamine Reddit 2020 : Here We Go Again...

    Ok... I was surprised that this isn't a thread already here even though the post in reddit is 8 days old. (maybe I missed it in the FPN, in that case consider this thread obsolete). https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/en0y35/2020_diamine_reddit_ink_preliminary_round/ Time to load up your preference for the colors ladies & gentlemen. I want a really deep dark red (darker than the Cult Pens) but in the same color palette as the Oxblood. The poll will stay up for 2 weeks if I'm not wrong.

    Blue Black - Diamine

They have some amazing colors. Last year Diamine inks int
  14. Another Diamine ink in the Cult Pen exclusive 'Deep Dark' range has arrived. If you have been looking for a very dark red ink, this one is for you. I absolutely love the colour and it is one of the few red inks I would use in the office. Oh, and it has both shading and sheen! Form an orderly queue now USAGE DAILY WRITER: I can see that BUSINESS USE: I would use it for all but the most formal of communications ILLUSTRATIONS: Not convinced that it stands out enough NOTES: Yes (in a dry environment, at least) PERSONAL: Very welcome LOVE LETTERS: Not really my speciality but I can see thi
  15. I have had this Diamine Sargasso Sea sample for reviewing for a while. I looked at this sample and thought how similar it looks to Diamine Blue Velvet. However, after I started writing with it, I started to see that it leans a little more towards the red end of the colour spectrum than Blue Velvet does. I like that about it, and I would happily live with both colours. Notably though, Blue Velvet is more expensive because it's one of the 150th Anniversary inks. This is an excellent dark to medium blue type. It varies according to the type of nib used, and looks darker when written with a F nib

    Diamine Mediterranean Blue

Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course http://www.diamineinks.co.uk/images/DimaineFactory.gif http://www.diaminein...uk/AboutUs.aspx Diamine Mediterranean Blue was, I believe, my fourth ink ever.

    Normal For Diamine?

    Hey everyone, I primarily use and change inks in my Pilot Metropolitan frequently; but I've never had to rinse and re-ink within a day. Does Diamine tend to run on the dry side or did I just get a drier than usual batch? The ink in question is the shade: Soft Mint. Thank you for any input you can provide.
  18. Diamine released few more inks exclusively for the German market. The five lovely warm colours are inspired by guitars - see them on this Instagram picture. I like the idea and I like the colours. Some nice packaging for the complete set would be even better. So far I know, the Fountainfeder e-shop is the only shop selling them right now. I expect this will change soon.

    First Nib Replacement!

    So, I finally attempted a nib replacement- a Zebra G nib in a Jinhao x450. I think it worked pretty darn well!

    Diamine Eclipse

    An FPN inky friend sent me some inks, and this one, Diamine Eclipse, was one. As you may know Diamine has been around since the 1860s, and has a large range of inks, solid reputation, favorable prices, and ready availability through out the US, EU. Perhaps even the major markets in Asia as well. The handling for this ink was really excellent, not too wet, not too dry, very good flow. There seems to be some divergence of opinion as to the actual color of this ink amongst the various vendor web sites; one calling it purple, another saying blue-black leaning to black. In the converter it has a
