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.

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)



Specifications:


Flow rate: good


Lubrication: good


Bleed through: noticeable


Shading: noticeable


Feathering: unnoticeable


Saturation: very good

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!

      @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

      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.
