Diamine Blue-Black R2

This is just meant to show some of the wonderful differences between this new version, R2, of Diamine's Blue-Black and the earlier one, together with some of their other colours in the similar 'slot'. Not forgetting one or two from other manufacturers. I haven't 'all' the inks that could be considered similar in colour etc so please forgive me if this visual record doesn't include your particular favourite or personal contender for the best 'blue-black'.

In my opinion, Diamine are now producing the best British Blue-Black ink available...

...except for Meddler's Karlsburg - probably the best blue-black in the world.

The first scan is of a few notes made before Bhavna's review.

Then this one of comments I made this morning after I got the ink.

Now, I'll just show the scans of the inks of similar colour.

If I've left any out, of the ones I actually have, then blame it on the Twisted Spire.

Suffice it to say, the new Blue-Black is a real winner as far as I'm concerned and that's what it's all about.

Meddler's 'Contusion'? Wouldn't that be black and blue instead of blue-black?

Wow. Thanks for this.

 

I am a blue black fan, and I really like all varieties. But I confess that I've always liked Diamine Blue Black (the original formulation) as a poor man's Tsuki-yo. The new formulation is a very nice dark blue, and certainly will appeal to many. Probably many more than the old one did. However, I think I'm glad I've got the older version.

 

Is it just me, or have Diamine recently seemed to be releasing a lot more highly saturated and dark inks?

This is gorgeous, thank you! Very enlightening.

If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, There will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Bhagawan Shri Satya Sai Baba
