  1. I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Sherwood Green. I have also reviewed Delamere Green separately, that is similar to Sherwood Green, but contains more blue. 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 nibs I used were a stub and a medium, this ink took 16-18 secs to dryIt flows reasonably wet, and lubricates the nib well.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic refill bottles.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

    Diamine Sherwood Green

    I didn't really set out to review Diamine Sherwood Green ink, especially when there are already at least a dozen other reviews of it on FPN, but it just happened to be what I chose for testing my desk pens for how 'wet' or 'dry' they relatively write. Once I've done those tests, however, I have a semblance of what I think is more useful than writing with a given ink using a variety of known or designated nib widths in a review - which is to write with a number of instruments and/or nibs known (to the reviewer) to exhibit different degrees of 'wetness' for a narrow range of nib widths - so I decided to just augment the results and make an ink review out of it, but limit myself to one type of paper, being my 'standard' notepaper that I'm personally happy to recommend to any fountain pen user, and am pretty sure is widely available across Europe, Australasia and North America and readily importable elsewhere. Anyway, here we go: Outside of sheer lack of accessibility and an exorbitant price per ml (for which I loosely set of threshold of A$0.80/ml) for an ink, the attribute that is most likely to put me, as a devotee of 'Japanese fine' nibs and small writing, off wanting to use an ink is aptness to exhibit feathering. (Noodler's Inks, I'm looking at you.) On my Rhodia Dotpad No.16 80gsm paper, I observed none from Diamine Sherwood Green. (Yes, I'd even prefer to write with an 'ugly' colour that does not feather.) There is effectively no ghosting: and the only bleed-through is where I've damaged the coating of the paper with rough Sailor desk pen nib by overwriting spots that were saturated with ink at the time: I'm pleasantly surprised to see any water resistance from this ink at all. The writing on the bottom left corner of the page is actually more legible than the scan suggests, after it was stuck under a slow-running tap for two minutes. Drying time of 15 seconds or so is quite decent and acceptable on a coated paper like that in the Rhodia Dotpad. As you can see from the big swatch of colour, shading is definitely possible with this ink, and there is some shading in the writing samples: The ink has a rusty reddish-brown sheen that is visible even in the scanned image: so I'm sure if you use a non-absorbent paper such as stone paper or Tomoe River, you'll definitely see it on that too.

  4. Hello all, Like many others it seems, I'm a fan of Diamine Sherwood Green. I'd like to use it for work, but I think it's a little too light for my office (on Rhodia paper anyway). I'd quite like to darken it with a mix, possibly but not neccessarily adding a hint of blue. Has anyone got a good mixture using this colour? Any recommendations on mix colours or ratios? If it helps, I currently have: Diamine: - Ancient Copper - Havasu Turquoise - Grey - Oynx Black - Damson - Bilberry - Eclipse - Umber - Marine - Majestic Blue - Sargasso Sea & Waterman Audacious Red Thinking Eclipse might be a good one, but I don't want to get a muddy colour. Thanks, Evy
