  1. So, at one point of another... we have all said.. "Wow, I wish I could get THAT ink".. but is discontinue/expensive/unobtanium .. etc So, here is the place where you should come and check if "THAT" ink has a Doppelgänger (look-alike, double, one who nearly or completely resembles another).. I will start... I will remind you, that even the same ink looks different depending on nib/flow/paper .. so these are examples inks with the same/similar hue.. that depending on your nib/flow/paper it might look identical.. Have you heard of Sailor Tanna Japonensis (Evening Cicada).. what about
  2. I'm looking to buy about 5-10 30ml Diamines bottles quite soon (Monday, but can be throughout the week) and was wondering which inks you all like and would recommend, colorwise. Inks that make you happy, left you pleasantly surprised, or you felt lived up to their good rep. I'm not particular about wetness, drying time, or feathering. Colorwise, I love blues, purples, yellow greens, maroons, deep greens, deep oranges, nickel azo types, and muted grayish colors. I tend to ignore oranges unless they shade, and my one yellow is enough for me. In terms of Diamine ink, I've got the overseas e

    Yes, yes; I'm aware I spelt the name of the ink wrong.

    Bleu Cuivré among other 30ml ink bottles

    From the album: Ink review

    The label on the bottle of Les Couleurs du Comte Bleu Cuivré is dull and dark to the point of being illegible. I don't have any other commercial 30ml bottled ink product that's nearly quite as bad. It's a shame, because the ink itself should be comparable quality-wise to Cult Pens's Iridescink Maureen, or other inks in Diamine's own standard product catalogue.

    Bleu Cuivré after soaking

    From the album: Ink review

    The type of paper is/written on the part of the sheet shown here. See if you can read it. The paper was dumped face down in a shallow tray with about 1.5cm of water, and soaked for about 15 minutes. That it was face down did not prevent colour that washed off the ink marks from quickly staining the surrounding area.

    Bleu Cuivré chromatogram

    From the album: Ink review

    Done on a strip of medium-speed filter paper. I touched my Pilot Plumix M nib (whose feed was connected to a converter with the ink) to the filter paper for a second, so should give a vague idea of how much ink I deposited on the filter paper at the starting point. I'd say that were quite a bit of dye in that one little spot! Does that make the pen ‘wet’, the ink ‘saturated’, or both, or neither?

    One of La Couronne du Comte's four shop-exclusive ink colours, which I think are produced by Diamine.

  8. I am looking for ink recommendation for pilot metropolitan medium nib. I have used Pelikan 4001 royal blue and Bril blue extensively on my pilot pen. Bril lacked the smooth flow of Pelikan. Both the inks fade quickly on bad quality papers, when I use them with Pilot Metropolitan. I want a relatively fade resistant (not waterproof) ink that is little saturated in character. Ink must have good flow and lubrication property . Few people recommended Diamine and Pilot blue ink. I wanted some critical feedback particularly about Diamine inks. I don't want to spend a ton of money by purchasing Noodl
  9. Hey guys, time for another hand-written review. TL;DR: Yes it's a sheen monster. Not as much as Skull & Roses / Smoke on the Water. Yes, it's a unique color, sorta. I still would not rec because it's finicky and not THAT unique of a color. If you were waffling I'd spring for Aurora Borealis instead. Review follows!
  10. Nicely shading, quick drying, lightish green with some dark undertones. Loved the color and sharing, and smoothness. I don't have any inks to compare to.

    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?
  12. 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

    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
  15. 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
  18. 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.
