Here is a quick writing test on notebook paper from a Mead five start notebook.

The feathering that I mentioned Is extremely hard to see and is in no way a hindrance to its use. The ink has a very nice color with some shading, the scan does not show the full range of color. The ink lubricates the nib well, it can be a little scratchy on 20 lb copy paper but it is smooth on about everything else I have tried. It has a nice even flow and rarely has any starting problems.

 

Diamine Blue Black is a Wonderful ink and a perfect choice for students, and everyone else!

 

Ps. I know I misspelled Written.

I have been writing for every day use at my desk with the Diamine Prussion Blue, it takes longer to dry on some papers more than on others and dries faster when used in a fine nib pen. The Parsons Pen I currently use it with has a medium nib - more medium than I like - so takes too long to dry on some paper.

Great first post!

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

Thanks for the review. For some reason I've overlooked this ink in the past.

Oh, and :W2FPN: (it appears that you'll fit right in, if your first post is an ink review).

I recently received sample vials of this ink and Organics Studio Manganese. The colors look identical, a classic blue-black. I found that Manganese was slightly "softer" and less saturated, and less prone to bleed through thin paper. Of course, one might imagine getting similar results by diluting Diamine Blue Black somewhat! Of the the two samples, as they came to me, I preferred OS Manganese.

This has been a favorite of mine for over a year. Glad you enjoy it!! I use it to complement some of my other blue blacks - Pelikan 4001 Blue Black and Noodler's 54th Massachusetts. (the Pelikan is by far my favorite though of not only those but the other Blue blacks I have tried)
