Diamine: 150Th Anniversary Blue Velvet


Recommended Posts


I present to test the ink Diamine 150th Anniversary of Blue Velvet with a beautiful, deep shade of blue. Very well saturated with ink. Super fast drying. Same advantages. The ink was developed to celebrate the 150 th anniversary of the company Diamine. The series consists of 8 new colors not available in the standard palette, packaged in a triangular bottle that set the sides together form a closed circle. I would recommend.

Wow another Diamine 150th anniversary ink review! This is a very nice blue! Now you've done it, akszugor! You've made me want to go and buy another bottle of ink... As if I really need another reason to get one. :D


Great review, thanks! Pretty nice handwriting too.

I just wrote with this ink today. I have been following the Parker Penman Sapphire replacement thread carefully and at the moment Blue Velvet and Private Reserve American Blue are two candidates. I have both and they are VERY close in color. i think? that the Blue Velvet may have more shading. A very nice ink!


BTW, in my brief search tonight it seems like some stores no longer have this color. Does that suggest it's going away? I don't know but it's a possibility.

I just used this ink for the first time the other day and I really like it! It's quite a nice shade of blue.


OCArt, I hope not! I haven't heard anything about the 150 inks being limited productions, and all the places I looked (Goulets, jet pens, and Anderson pens) still had them in stock, so I'm remaining hopeful!
