I never thought I'd like such a dark purple, but it works! It's well behaved, has secondary potential as a completely different purple when diluted, and is affordable. Definitely recommend this one.

 

I'll be taking pictures of the ink's attractive sheen and posting them soon. :D

 

And I think I'll be doing a comparison on the dip nibs I've accrued lately.

Thank you for this review. I've been looking for a really dark purple. This is it!

I'm not in favor of natural selection. I'm just saying: Let's remove the warning lables and see what happens.

Great review. Fantastic ink. Also very wet and very well-behaved.

I use it all the time. Looks like an aubergine. Somewhat hard to describe in words... a sorta brownish purple-black!

Another great review and up to your usual high and informative standards. It is a super ink and I too have always classed it as a very dark purple.

I don't use it as often as I used to but it's not in the 'file' pile.

On my oldish MacBook screen, it looks like Noodler's Whaleman's Sepia.

mh, you are a master of the sheen! Honestly, meant seriously. You have also taught me what to do to see this. But personally, I myself don't put all that much emphasis into shading, because when I write and read, I don't tilt the paper in the right light source to the right angle in order to see what the ink can deliver in regard to colour....

Nonetheless, excellent analyses and photos!

Your reviews are really great, I love reading them. I keep saying that... but I'm starting to feel like you should be paid to do this...

And to think that I saw the name "eclipse" and thought it was a black.

Rock on! Great review of a terrific ink. I just moved so my bottle is literally in a massive pile of other inks. I've been thinking of digging it out, and now I am sure to. Thanks.

You rock MH, and you have got me on the sheen hunt trying out very strang positions to catch that elusiveness....... nice..:bonk:

Now Diamine just needs to add a braking dawn color and a new moon color then offer up the set :)

I love sheen, but for the life of me I cannot get this ink to have any sheen. I'm using a flex nib on Tomoe River paper. I'm wondering if there are different versions of this ink or something? I don't usually have any trouble with sheen.
