My first attempt at a review, and it's self-evident that I have no idea what I'm doing. But just to be clear:

Thanks for a good review. I agree that it looks like an excellent autumnal colour.

(To me it looks like a more sober version of Diamine's Sunset.)

Great review and it looks a great colour; for those that like that sort-of shade. It's not for me I'm afraid but the DD Red is one that I use.

Thanks, folks; I admit I was nervous.

Oh, don't know that one. *searches* Yes, I see what you mean.

 

This is a great review. My favorite part is "Marmite." :)

 

Bound to be someone who hates that bit though... :D

You'll definitely be the man to tell us which is the closest match amongst existing Diamine inks.

 

Cheers, Al

Great review of an interesting ink. How about ink crud? I love Diamine Ochre and Orange but they leave too much crud on and around the nib. It washes off easily but still ...

Great review. Thanks. I clearly need to grab myself a sample and give this a whirl. Agree that it seems like a great autumn ink, but I love oranges and reds generally, so...

Crud is a parameter often shed by reds and ornages. Still, it's absolutely harmless. Just wipe off occasionally with a piece of paper towel or ahh, you know what and don't leave the pen open and unused for any great length of time.

I have DDO in my Carene right now. It's my new favourite thing. It does creep like crazy, although the Carene isn't as prone to crud as some pens I have. Flow is excellent.

Crud doesn't bother me, but in the interests of Science I put some DDO in an Oliver Exam, which experience has shown to be a crud grower of Olympic standard, to see what happens. That was 24hrs ago, and yep, crud is forming. Not a lot, but it's there. No great surprise, really, but fwiw.

 

Cheers, Al

I had nib creep with Diamine Pumpkin on my 146 with EF nib. This does look like an interesting color. Will have to think about it.

Not supported by the evidence - I support all positive responses above to an excellent review :)

That will be Diamine Burnt Sienna; see this comparison with the sheet from my All Diamine Inks post:

Same pen and same (batch of) paper used.

(The top line is a different pen, but all the lines on the sheet is the usual medium Lamy Safari)

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
