  1. A Smug Dill

    Sailor Manyo Ume - A Lazy Review

    Wetness: I'd say moderate. Bleed-through: None that I could see. Feathering: None that I could see. Shading: Plenty, even along very thin lines of ink. Sheen: None that I could see. Water resistance: Very good. Legible grey marks remain after prolonged soaking. The colour that gets lifted off the page upon contact with water can end up making the general area quite pink, but the grey marks will stand out against it. The red that washes off Sailor Manyo Ume isn't quite as staining as the blue in Sailor Manyo Chigaya. Overall: I like it as a sheen-free alternative to Sail
  2. A Smug Dill

    Diamine Oxblood

    Another quickie ink review, on one type of paper only, while I'm testing my (Extra) Fine-nibbed pens and trying to figure out what I want to do with my full ink reviews... Flow: Well/'wet' enough, such that writing produced with the Platinum DP-1000AN with EF nib does not appear dry, and the differences in colour intensity from the various EF nibs I used are not as pronounced as with other inks. Feathering: Effectively none on the Rhodia paper I used, even though the nib on the Sailor 11-0073-120 desk pen is so rough it tore through the coating on the surface of the paper, and got so
  3. Something very strange has happened to my my Kwz Ink Maroon. As far as I know there were two versions of this ink and mine is the second release. I really liked it but haven't used it very much. A couple of days ago I inked up a pen with it and it was writing a little deeper on the brown tone than I remember, but still very much maroon in colour. A day later, the colour has changed to a rather dull rusty brown. This isn't an iron gal ink. I wondered if my ink logs of it were the same and checked and they were still a nice maroon colour. I thought that maybe there had been a contamination of in

    Kwz Maroon #1

    Yet another wonderful ink from Konrad: Close-ups: Like many of Konrad's inks, this one doesn't sheen so much as glow: Swatch: On Rhodia:

    Kwz Ink - Maroon

    Hi, I have just posted on my blog a short review of KWZ - Maroon, which was reviewed here, but I decided to share a little my pictorial contribution to the topic. So, here it is. KWZ maroon is a nice and rewarding ink. As most KWZ inks it performs really well. The flow is pretty good and in general I have not found much problems with feathering, bleeding through and all this horrible thing which may happen on the paper. It may do a bit on very cheap and absorbing copy paper, but Rhodia, ClaireFontaine, Midori...these are all fine. Even on more generic but decent quality paper it performs ver

    Kobe #27 Kounan Maroon

    I don't think having both this one and Oku-yama is necessary, but if Oku-yama is a little too red/pink for you, then this one might be worth a look: Nice sheen: Comparison with Oku-yama (Oku-yama on the left, Kounan Maroon on the right): And again:

    Ink Review: Diamine Maroon

    I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This is Diamine Maroon. This ink is neither waterproof nor archivalBearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and I write with a stub nib, this ink took 13-15 secs to dry.It flows quite well and lubricates the nib quite well. No start-up problems noticed.It is currently available in 30ml plastic bottles and 80ml glass bottles.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's reasonably priced.

  9. Hello My latest purchase is winging its way to me from Italy and (being mad as a bullfrog), I like to match my inks to my pens. I know it's difficult judging pen (or ink) colours online, but I am considering Sailor Grenade or Diamine Merlot. The pen is described in various places as maroon, aubergine or purple. Which isn't remotely helpful. Anyone any thoughts on the two inks above or any other suggestions? Thanks! Jon
