  1. Hi Everyone: I'm trying to solve a mystery regarding the inks Diamine Dark Olive and Diamine Salamander. Are these 2 actual different inks or is Salamander a new name for Dark Olive? When using the Anderson Pens ink tool, I was unable to find dark olive in the list but found Salamander there and am seeing both come up in Google searches. However, no one seems to be willing to acknowledge of both of these inks. Thanks! Sincerely, Howard

    Diamine Salamander - An Overview

    Earlier this afternoon I was given the go-ahead by Phil at Diamine to post my humble scans and mediocre photos, of Diamine Salamander. So here they are! I refer you to my comments about the naming of the ink, here on Market Watch and the other shorter announcement here on Inky Thoughts, just for reference. It's a dark olive/khaki sort-of colour and one that I think will be particularly popular. This general written test shows the general appearance, on a white Rhodia dot paper. The next scans are done on my most usual papers and are reasonably self-explanatory. The only bit of feathering

    Accidental Mixtures...

    I guess we've all done it (I hope!). Not quite flushed through a darker ink before filling up with a lighter one. My dear little brass Wearever was in need of an outing so I cleaned him out - he's a squeeze bar filler, so no fiddling - and decided to give him a run with my newly acquired Apache Sunset. He's quite broad and firm but smooth and wet so I was curious to see what he'd make of it. Needless to say, he hadn't finished with the Diamine Salamander he was carrying before and the resulting mixture makes my eyes squirm. You'd think I'd get a pretty sludgy brown from the mix but not at al

    Ink Review: Diamine Salamander

    I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This is Diamine Salamander. I decided to review this particular shade because I know there are people who want an alternative to Montblanc Racing Green, and Salamander is a good contender. It's very slightly less saturated than MbRG. However, it looks very slightly greyer on the scan than it does on the original review form. The comparison inks look the same on the scan as they do on the review form. Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and I write with a

    A Few New Inks...

    I've received a few new inks this month and have been pleasantly surprised by most of them. The first picture is a photograph, taken using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and the second is a scan - I know which one I'll stick to in future! I had a torrid time with my Platinum Plaisir - I ordered a green one with a 0.5 nib. I loved the packaging and the presentation for a £10 pen, but unfortunately it behaved as such - scratchy and dry and horrible. A search of here and other places suggested this was an exception, so I bought myself 3 Preppys - a 0.5 green that would sit in my Plaisir's body if

    Diamine Salamander Review

    Hello, fellow addicts! Having spent many weeks languishing in the dungeons of the local hospital this summer, (I hope some of you, at least, missed me!), I finally have enough time and energy to hang around here once more. So, I thought I'd kick start my come-back by offering a review of Salamander; Diamine's latest inky concoction. Here it is: I have to admit I love Diamine inks, as well as the company's ethos. They sell an amazing array of inks - in two sizes so as to be affordable to all - as well as offering special 'Collections' for the more discerning (and affluent) connoisse

    Diamine Salamander - Coming Very Soon!

    I can now announce a forthcoming new ink from Diamine - Salamander. It's a wonderful dark green, olive, khaki, brown colour which I'm sure will be very popular. Seriously it is all of those colours.Working in collaboration with Phil Davies at Diamine I was asked to come up with a name for a sample of the ink he'd sent me to have a look at, labelled 'No 93'. I was intrigued and Salamander was born.It reminded me of the colours of Royal Flying corps bi-planes during WWI so I had a look for some more information. Here is one of the Q & A bits on a website for UK model aircraft fanatics. "I ha

    Diamine Salamander - Coming Soon!

    Announcing a forthcoming ink from Diamine - Salamander. I've put a description in Market Watch as it won't be available on the market for about six to eight weeks yet, so I can't post any scans or a review proper until then. You'll just have to wait but it will be worth it, I can tell you. AND - I was asked to name it! More soon.
