  2. There are some excellent inks in latest Diamine 150th anniversary range. As Blues are my favourite colours Regency Blue is my first review. This is a really dark and saturated blue. It's not a blue-black, and exhibits no black or green cast as blue-blacks might do. It has a slight hint of purple that gives it the name Regency Blue. I found it to be a really smooth writing ink and had no problems at all with flow or lubrication, no skips or hard starts despite leaving the caps off my pens while I was doing swab tests and comparing it with other blue inks. Despite it being really saturated, I had no problem at all with clean up either from my fingers or from my pens. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink but it's water resistant.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink dries between 16-18 seconds using my quite wet Parker 45 stubbed nib It flows very well and lubricates the nib very well. It felt really smooth to write with. I love writing with it. It is currently only available in new unusually 'cake slice' shaped 40ml glass bottles that are very stable and very user friendly. They don't have internal plastic inkwells. It's widely available, and Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site
  3. Ink Review: Diamine Regency Blue (150th Anniversary Ink) Pen: Lamy Al-Star Ocean Blue, M-nib Paper: Rhodia N° 16 notepad 80 gsm Review This ink is part of the 8-color ink series that Diamine released to celebrate their 150th anniversary (1864-2014). The set has some wonderful subdued colors. This dark blue business-like ink is one of them. Regency Blue - the name evokes the image of Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France and spouse of Louis XVI, sitting in a room at the Château de Versailles, writing a letter to her "amant du jour" with this dark blue reginal ink. A droplet forming at the tip of the quill, on its way to make a splash on the paper... This is a nice dark blue ink. Some shading, but it mostly gets hidden due to the darkness of the color. This is an "old color" ink, that reminds me of the 1700's... it breathes "antique" to me. The name Regency Blue is well chosen. Personally I like this ink's color a lot - it's a color that looks nice on the paper. Also very well suited for use at the office. In the 18th century, the nobility was more into perfumes, not that much into taking a bath. Water was not Marie-Antoinette's favorite fluid. This ink also loathes water. Hit it with water, and the color disappears. Almost no trace is left on the paper. A shame... Let's have a look at how this ink behaves on paper. For this, I did some tests: Rhodia N°16 notepad 80 gsm - drying time ~20 seconds, no feathering, no show-through and no bleed-throughPaperblanks journal paper - drying time ~10 seconds (that's fast for this paper), traces of show-through, no bleed-throughGeneric notepad paper 70 gsm - drying time 5-10 seconds, no feathering, traces of show-through, no bleed-throughMoleskine journal - drying time ~5 seconds, no feathering, serious show-through, some bleed-throughRegency Blue is a very well-behaved ink. It also dries very fast on most paper. It writes surprisingly well on trashy paper, like a Moleskine journal (provided you only use one side of the page). The good drying time makes it ideal for fast note-taking. Given its fast drying times, it might also be a good ink for lefties (just an educated guess...) Conclusion I like Regency Blue a lot - especially as a working place ink. The dark antique look appeals to me. A fast drying time and good behavior on all types of paper are a big plus for using this ink at work - no Tamoe River, Clairefontaine or Rhodia paper there - just generic copy paper. For me, this is an ink I'll use on a regular basis. my overall score: A
