Diamine: 150Th Anniversary Silver Fox


Recommended Posts


I present to test the ink Diamine 150th Anniversary Silver Fox with a beautiful gray color. Very nice shade. Ink very well written. Technical parameters also good. 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.

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)


Flow rate: good

Lubrication: good

Bleed through: unnoticeable

Wow, it is much more water resistant than I had expected.

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

I know that I'm in the minority, but that gray is the color of sad, depressing, gloom. If others like it, I love it for them; but not for me. :(

Thanks for the review. I have a sample of this but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

HalloweenHJB- I think it would be nice for letter writing. ;) But I do like its shading and in fact I ordered a bottle.

I appreciate other views on this, truly. But if I got a letter with this ink, "oh, no. Some sad person watered down their black ink too much, and now it's pale and thin..." ;)

I wrote with this today and was very pleased with the shading. Tastes do vary, but I like it.
