Diamine Green-Black

Here's a good dark green. I've been looking for something that was an actual dark *green*, and not just a muddy colored brownish, yellowish colored one. Not that there's not a place for a more earthy color, but I was really looking for a dark true green. This is a good one.

 

The color is so dark, it could with the right wet fine nib be mistaken for black with a bit of character. The green equivalent to blue-black.

 

This one dries quickly and has a Diamine wet flow.

The first 'green' I bought. I don't use it as often as I probably should.

Good review, and from my experience with this ink, I quite agree with your conclusion...indeed it is, a 'good dark green'. :thumbup:

Greens are possibly my favorite of inks...and this is particularly nice.

nomadhacker,

 

Nice review :)

 

I really like Diamine Green-Black; I just wish it was more water resistant !

 

All my favourite Diamine inks (Oxblood, Imperial Purple, Twilight etc.) seem to have little or no water resistance :(

 

Have fun !

 

Best regards

Yeah, I'm thinking of mixing with something with more water power. Don't see anything so far that's water resistant and dark green, rather than muddy greenish. Though at least this has some resistance. Not water *proof*, but it has some core that sticks it out on a simple splash.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

What's the difference between this & Salamander? Anyone had these side by side?

 

 

Salamander is just a totally different kind of ink. It looks gray, green, sepia, muddy depending on the paper and pen. Green Black is just what is says it is.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Oh, so NomadHacker, I should also have mentioned GI Green. It will leave enough of the print to read.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
