I love your writing; it certainly shows up this ink's character. Agree about the Music Set. I'm onto refills of most colours already. My favourite is Schubert.


ps if you like Handel, you'll love Sailor-made Joyful-2 Purple Heart :-)

Great review. I really like Handel in wet pens like you're using here, and it's been a good performer for me.


And thanks for trying multiple solvents. :)

Wow!! This ink is beautiful. Totally slipped under my radar until now. Going to have to try it someday...

Thanks for the review. Another interesting ink from Diamine. So many inks, so little time . . . .

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

Do you know how this ink compares to Grape, in color and behavior? Grape also has the green sheen, but this ink looks less saturated. Have you noticed any tendency to dry in the nib in normal use?

Just for the sake of conversation, and with apologies for necroposting, I would like to vote for this ink as being the most different irl from the color on the bottle, the color at the manufacturer's website, and, interestingly enough, the pictures kindly posted by various intrepid reviewers at FPN. It's downright weird. I find this to be essentially a brown ink, with maybe the slightest bit of pink hiding in the corners. I almost feel that someone at Diamine put the wrong ink in my bottle.

      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
