Diamine: 150Th Anniversary Terracotta


Recommended Posts


I present to test the ink Diamine 150th Anniversary Terracotta with a beautiful terracotta color. Ink very well written, very quickly dries out and beautifully shades already at nib F. 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.

Manufacturer: Diamine

Series, colour: 150th Anniversary Terracotta

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)


Flow rate: good

Lubrication: good

Bleed through: unnoticeable

Shading: noticeable

Feathering: unnoticeable

Saturation: good

If you have interesting inks and you want to give a sample for testing - welcome.
We can exchange a color sample.

Great review! And the color looks true on my monitor.


I've enjoyed this ink very much myself. Bought it after accumulating lots of orange inks for my Pelikan Indian Summer (M640). However a page of orange is too much for my eyes. It turns out this has just enough brown to allow more writing without needing sunglasses.


Really glad I bought this ink.

Thanks for the review. This is the only one of the Anniversary inks I've tried so far that I absolutely positively had to have a full bottle of.

Thank you for the review.

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

Has anyone compared this to Diamine's Burnt Sienna? I would like to see a face-off of these two inks... :)
