Diamine Blue Inks Test

Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts



The UK based Diamine company, have been manufacturing fountain pen inks since 1864 using traditional methods and formulas for their production. I have just tested 78 samples, which I’ll post over the coming days. Here are the 20 test swatches for the Blue fountain pen inks and great range it is too.


For the full results and swatches etc please visit: https://quinkandbleach.wordpress.com/2017/02/21/diamine-blue-inks-test/

Love the Blue Velvet, and really like your method of presenting the ink samples.

Blue Velvet is a mainstay in my 823. I also regularly rotate Prussian and Cornflower in an out.

I don't think anyone does true blues like Diamine

Another vote for Blue Velvet! I think I have a lifetime supply stockpiled.

I like you tests!

Yes, a really beautiful way to present swatches and ink tests.


Another +1 for Blue Velvet, but my other favorite Diamine blue - Majestic Blue - was sadly omitted :( .
