Thank you Chrissy for the nice review. Thank you Julie for adding your nice pictures.

For those who have actually used this ink, is there any green tint in it?

Prussian blue should not have green in it... I'm usually not fond of teal inks, and it's so difficult to correctly perceive colours on screen.

In my experience blue inks look more blue on my PC screen than they are in reality.

Thanks for the review, it's very tempting. I'm wondering how it would be likely to look using a F or EF nib. Not too muted, I hope.

Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Diamine Prussian Blue

 

This is review #33 in my series. Here's the YouTube video:

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

What I find odd is the color.

 

Thats not Prussian/Berlin Blue.

 

Attached is. Diamine Prussian is way too gray. True Prussian blue should be purely blue.

Yes, we know. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/310695-working-on-the-perfect-prussian-blue-ink/

 

Which makes me even more grateful to @Chrissy, @LizEF and other ink reviewers for showing us Diamine Prussian Blue, so we can individually decide for ourselves whether that ink colour is what we want to see on the pages of what we write, instead of blindly wanting or expecting "Prussian Blue" to either mean the actual pigment, or be a perfect match for it without having examples of such against which to fix our requirements and calibrate what we see on paper.

I tend to favour greyish blues and I bought a bottle of Diamine Prussian Blue after reading this thread. I am delighted with it. There’s something calm and elegant about it, it is distinctive but also easy to read and suitable for any situation. I’m absolutely sure it will become a favourite for me and my go-to mid blue. Thank you to all who posted about this one.

Phew! Glad you like it. :thumbup: And I agree - easy on the eyes, suitable for anything, but a little more interesting than the average blue.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
