Diamine Coral

Now that spring is indeed fully upon us, it seemed like a good time to bust out this ink. I received as part of the April Ink Drop from Goulet Pens, and I’m glad I did. I would never have tried it out on my own, which means I never would have found this bright, slap-you-in-the-face color:

I used this in my Lamy 2000 for an entire week, doing pretty much everything with it: grading, highlighting in a paper I was reading, working the first draft of a homework assignment, and making notes in my textbooks. It was absolutely wonderful, and as I said above, I am planning on getting a full bottle of it sometime. It’s a color you can’t ignore, yet it’s not overly difficult to read either. I like it for grading and marking up papers and I think it will be a good tool for when I start my research duties full time and have to read a lot of journal articles.

There is not much for shading, but with a color so bright I’m not sure that you would really want shading. I think that for a somewhat “temporary” ink (there’s not any water resistance and seemingly low fade resistance) it’s a good choice.

 

Overall, I recommend this ink if you want something really bright but aren’t overly concerned with how long it will stick around for. Also, it looks like this would be a good candidate for matching to the neon coral Safari, if you are someone who does those sorts of things. For me it seems like a fun color to highlight with or make lists and quick notes, and at roughly $13/80 mL here in the States and across the pond in the UK, it gives Noodler’s a run for the money on cost of use.

This ink was purchased with my own money and I am in no way affiliated with Goulet Pens or Diamine and am not being compensated in any way for this review. All opinions above are my own and you can feel free to disagree with them if you like.

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Nice color. Thanks for posting this. I'm wondering how this coral compares to the Lamy coral ink??

 

Interesting thought - I'm hoping I can get my hands on a pack of the coral Lamy cartridges when they hit the States and do a comparison...

That would be great. It might be nice if they offer it as a bottled ink as it would be very unlike anything they currently offer.

Thank you for sharing! I suspect it will come out of the pen.

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

Gosh, the Diamine Coral I received in the mail looks so different! Mine is more of an orange color, and it's so bright it should only be used as a highlighter ink.
