Today I'm reviewing Diamine Apple Glory ink.

Diamine Apple Glory is a nicely saturated bright green dye based ink that leans slightly more towards the blue range of the spectrum than the yellow range. It’s a summery, bright, grassy green colour and is from Diamine Inks standard range.

Diamine Apple Glory leans slightly less blue that Diamine Ultra Green and is a very similar colour to J.Herbin Lierre Sauvage, but is more saturated. Kaweco Palm Green and the old discontinued Caran d’Ache Colours of the Earth Amazon are also very similar colours.

  • Flow Rate: Very good. Felt quite wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.
  • Lubrication: Good - It felt smooth across the page in the pens I used.
  • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
  • Start-up: Immediate.
  • Saturation: Saturated ink
  • Shading Potential: Some shading seen with F and M nibs.
  • Sheen: None seen.
  • Show-Through:
    • Royal recycled
    • Oxford paper
    • Field Notes
    • Tomoe River 52gsm
    • Generic 80gsm lined pads
  • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen, even on Field Notes.
  • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen
  • Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.
  • Staining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap.
  • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
  • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof and has no water resistance.
  • Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.

Nice review, nice green. I use it a lot, otherwise its Diamine sister Sherwood. Almost reminds me of a Granny Smith apple.

You're welcome. :) You're right about the Granny Smith apple. That was a comparison I didn't think of. :D

In a wet pen, this ink offers interesting colour variations and even some sheen. I like it.
