Ink Review: Diamine 150Th Anniversary Tropical Green


Chrissy

Recommended Posts

I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This one is the green ink from the latest Diamine 150th Anniversary collection: Tropical Green

 

  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink dries reasonably quickly.
  • It flows quite wet and lubricates the nib well. No start-up problems noticed. No skipping noticed.
  • It didn't dry out when I left the cap off the pen while I did the swabs and the comparison inks.
  • It is currently available in wedge shaped 40ml glass bottles that don't have ink wells.
  • Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink. It washes off skin very easily.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

Your swabs make it look a lot like MB Irish Green, another green ink I like. Dark enough to be serious, green enough to be different.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

I would say Diamine Tropical Green is slightly lighter (and cheaper) than Mb Irish Green

Thanks for the clarification. I bought all the Diamine 150th Anniversary Inks, but I haven't opened any, yet. So many inks . . . .

 

In the USA, they cost $0.37/mL for the Diamine Anniversary Inks and $0.32/mL for the Mont Blanc. Regular Diamine is $0.16/mL. MB Permanent Inks are $0.47/mL and the Limited Editions are about $0.54/mL. MB Pink will be about $0.63/mL when one can find it.

 

As stated in many other posts, the cost per mL is somewhat misleading; it takes so little in to write a page or two.

      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..

      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
