    Ink Review: Diamine Midnight

    I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. I wanted to review Twilight and Midnight consecutively to see their differences or similarities. This one is Diamine Midnight. I would call it a dark blue ink. It leans more towards the blue-red portion of the colour spectrum than Twilight and Prussian Blue. It's quite similar to Tchaikovsky although it seems to contain slightly less red, and is lighter than Regency Blue It's a well behaved, saturated ink with not much shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the Pilot Custom 74 M nib pen I used. This ink exhibits showthrough and a little bleedthrough on my thick paper, so I tried it on Rhodia dot pad paper. Showthrough and bleedthrough are both noticeable. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink. Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib used at that time was a M, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry. It flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and comparisons with other inks. It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or cartridges. Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site. It's a reasonable price
  2. Long story short: I'm looking for a reliable dark blue ink...I'm not a big fan of the blues, and I easily discarded Pelikan Blue-Black, Waterman Blue-Black, Waterman Florida Blue, Pelikan Royal Blue, Pelikan Edelstein Topaz, R&K Salix and Noodler's BBK... Still, I'm pretty stubborn, so I want to give blues yet another chance; that's why I want to try one of these two, but can't decide which one.. they both have similar hues, albeit Midnight is somewhat more saturated. So which do you think should win a spot in my ink repertoire, based mostly on behavior? (I like the color of both, at least on the computer screen...). Thank you!
  3. Hi again. I recently posted about what blue black I should buy. After a few people replied I have decided on Montblanc Midnight Blue. If anyone in Australia, preferably NSW, has any and is willing to send me a sample it would be much appreciated, as the cheapest I could find it for was $35 posted, which is quite expensive, and I don't want to risk having a bottle of ink sitting around not getting used. Thanks.
