This one looks not bad but doesn't seem very special to me. I have to say Diamine's anniversary inks don't appeal to me as much as their flower set or musician set.

 

I am loving the blues in this set for sure - they complement the vast array of blues I already have which is fantastic. The flower and music sets are really exquisite, I agree.

I wish they would make the two sets of ink available separately...

 

Great news, they are available separately as of now! 30 ml bottles, so you can take your pick.

Really? I was ordering from Diamine a few hours ago but I didn't notice that.

 

If you email them directly, your wishes shall be fulfilled.

I don't normally 'do' reds but if I did, then along with Deep Dark Red, Carnival would be my red of choice. Great colour.

Thanks for the review.

This seems to lean towards the orange side of red. How does this compare to the Diamine Flower Collection Tulip?

Thank you!!! Feel free to send me a letter with this for a CRV. Also, a little sheet for the next fade olympics.

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

I must try the other deep dark colours, so far I'm at dd blue!! This red is lovely, like 1670 minus gold...

Totally individual and unique. Carnival does some lovely changing, moody thing and ends up darker.

Have tried my best with the time I've had, also put in a surprise ink for you to enjoy.

Is it just my dim memory or could this be a replacement for the MB Hitchcock red that so many miss?

 

I have no experience of that fabled ink, but wouldn't it be wonderful if it was?

I have exactly one line, "This is an unobtanium ink." written on a Rhodia dot pad. So no, I really don't have any experience with it either. But they both look like a rich, deep red, which seems to be what folks want, not too bright, and not pink or orange.

 

The thinner nibs were less deep or dark, though.

Sounds quite beautiful. There is something wonderfully regal about rich, deep red inks.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
