Diamine Vivaldi (Music Collection)


Cursive Child

Very nice ink, that has been reviewed before. Colorful, yet subdued enough to be used at work.

 

I made a mistake in not having enough ink in it to start the review, so the review is a bit two colored.

The first part, seems a bit dryish, when the ink was nearly over. When I filled it, it was very wet, and you can see the sudden change to a dark color. Towards the end of the page it evens out to a more realistic shade. I'm using a 0.6 mm JoWo stub, that is not overly wet, I think. Thanks to all the other reviewers before me to make me aware of this ink, so I got a sample. Will likely buy it on my next ink shipment from Diamine!

I like it. A legible grey with a touch of purple, very close to Diamine Earl Grey on my monitor. Thanks for the review.

Thanks! I'd say it's a purple with a touch of grey. I haven't tried Earl Grey, though.

Thank you for taking the time to do this review! I do like the color.

There are some really nice inks in Diamine's Musician set, and Vivaldi is certainly one of them; right between purple and grey, neither crazy nor boring.

It must be great for drawing, too

Ack, to me this color is dreadfully melancholy-inducing, shudder. But it is somewhat similar to Iroshizuku Fuyu-Syogun which is my favorite Gray.

 

Thank you for the review!

Another review of this favorite, on better paper, and hopefully better scan

      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
