Today I'm reviewing Diamine Meadow ink. Diamine Meadow is an unsaturated, yellowish green, dye based ink. Its from Diamine Inks standard range. This is a darker and greener shade than J.Herbin Vert Pré/Apple scented and P.I. Chiku rin, and a lighter and less gold/brown shade than R&K Alt. Goldgrün and Sailor Waka uguisu. In fact I dont have an ink really similar as a comparison. I found it quite an unusual ink to write with. Sometimes it shaded a lot and felt wet and lubricated, particularly with my M and B nibs, yet when I first used it in my Lamy 2000 with F nib, it felt drier and less lubricated. It seems to behave quite differently depending on the pen, its nib, and the paper. Flow Rate: Good. Felt wet with my M & B nibs.Lubrication: OK - better with M & B nibs.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Unsaturated ink.Shading Potential: An unusual shading ink, quite variable.Sheen: None seen.Show-Through:Tomoe River 52gsm.Tom Bihn Lined.Generic 80gsm lined pads.Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.Nib Creep / Crud: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen.Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.Staining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap.Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof but has surprisingly good water resistance.Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.
