Diamine Bloody Absinth (Seitz-Kreuznach Exclusive)

Hey guys, time for another hand-written review. TL;DR: Yes it's a sheen monster. Not as much as Skull & Roses / Smoke on the Water. Yes, it's a unique color, sorta. I still would not rec because it's finicky and not THAT unique of a color. If you were waffling I'd spring for Aurora Borealis instead. Review follows!

Yeah, I like the color, but that's about it. Maybe a nicer pen will make it feel nicer when I write with it, but it just doesn't wanna behave, which annoys me.

 

It is a sheen monster, so there's that.

Love it! It looks like you had fun doing this ink review and I certainly enjoyed reading it.

 

Just because of your fun review, I'm considering buying it (form over content!), but then I have Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine and J. Herbin's Emeraude de Chivor and that's good enough for me...

I got a bottle of it and I really like it. I haven't had any issues really. I'm using a Pelikan M600 with a broad nib and it does fine for my purposes.

Thanks all! Just a minor update, I wrote out a page using the same pen and ink on my Tomoe River notebook (heavier weight white), and it might be worth noting that the writing experience is much smoother and nicer on the expensive(er) paper than the Leuchtturm. So YMMV very much depending on the paper you choose to write with; this ink seems to demand a more expensive paper to perform well. Also it's been a day or two since I wrote anything with this pen and there were no startup problems, so that's good.

Thank you for the review. I am not enamored with the color enough to bridge the disadvantages of the ink.
