Pumpkin - Diamine

Pumpkin is cool. It's not very eloquent to say this but that's what I think :) This ink is really, really cool. Saturated, well-behaved (OK, it CAN cause some nib creep but it's just small inconvenience that won't stop me from using it).



If you like oranges you can also check my comparison of 32 oranges and yellows.

Indeed a beautiful ink. I especially like the way it comes out from a stub nib.

 

ps. I'm sure you 've been told so, but that ink splash thing is something else! :)

My favorite (and EDC) orange! You are not left in doubt about what it's color is when you use it.

 

It's O-R-A-N-G-E.

 

This was one of the first FP inks I ever bought, and I fell madly in love with it, at first sight. So did my husband. The irony? Both of us usually hate orange! Mostly because both of us look horrible in it, but we love love love love love this orange.

 

Go figure.

Off to see if I can find a comparison with Kin-Mokusei since Sailor prices are not yet for me I might grab a bottle of Pumpkin.

I had the same thought - without seeing them side by side, Pumpkin looks very much like Kin-Mokusei.

Here's a very quick comparison...

 

Kin-Mokusei:

 

More yellow, some shading, writes like butter. Takes a lot longer to dry on paper compared to Pumpkin. Has some silvery sheen(?). I get lots of hard starts with this ink in all but one pen/nib combo :gaah:

 

Pumpkin:

 

More red, I personally never got much shading from this ink? A bit more boring ink in my opinion, but on the other hand it works better than Kin-Mokusei.

 

I do like them both...

Thank you!!

So Pumpkin is a vivid orange and Kin-Mokusei is a yellowish orange. Now that I can see the difference side by side, I want them both! ;)

I find Kin Mokusei inherently more 'complex' than Diamine Pumpkin :)

Minddance and Almu your observations and the visual comparison are very helpful. Thank you bunches!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      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.
