Diamine Reviews

Bottled Ink(80ml)
One of the most beautiful blue black fountain pen inks out there. It gives a deep turquoise black shading when dry and looks great on Clairefontaine paper journals. This is one of my favourite blue black inks.

Overall Diamine is my favorite brand of inks. They have a great selection of colors and perform well. I've never had any problem with any of the Diamine colors I've used in any of my pens. I usually use bottled inks and a converter, but I have one pen that is too small for a converter. These work very well in it. These are international standard size cartridges which many fountain pens accept. Some brands, however, only take their brand and size of cartridge and converter. As long as these fit your particular brand of pen, I recommend them without reservation. They are reasonably priced, too. I bought the Imperial Purple which I like.

Shimmering(50ml)
Diamine is one of my favorite ink brands, and I love using these shimmer colors. I've used Magical Forest, Night Sky, and Red Lustre on my Christmas cards and envelopes, using pens with 1.1 mm stub nibs. I recently also ordered Blue Pearl and it has become an instant favorite. The silver shimmer is very consistent in a Pilot Metropolitan with a Plumix M stub nib. I plan to use this ink for special notes throughout the year; it's just a beautiful ink. I do shake the bottle to mix in the sparkles before inking my pens, and I gently agitate the pen from time to time as I'm writing. I've used these shimmer inks for two Christmases and have had no problems when cleaning them from my pens. They are well behaved inks and the shimmer adds just a bit of uniqueness to your writing. I plan to order one of the newest set of shimmer colors as well when I can make up my mind which color.

Pen Chalet's price is the best I've found, and the shipping was extremely fast.

I love this ink, its color and the way it flows from my FP nibs and dries quickly with absolutely no feathering. Its color is also a nice match for my Delta MOMO design Alumina FP.

Diamine--one of the most reliable ink brands as their product is very unlikely to cause ink-related fountain pen problems!

Bottled Ink(80ml)
This was a "no brainer" for me since I have used the Ancient Copper cartridges. Liked them so much I had to have the bottled version. Vibrant color with great shading. It is not one of those weak colors but is strong and bold and makes a really nice statement. Try it and I am sure you will like it. I have not experienced any of the clogging that some folks talk about but I don't usually leave a pen unused for long periods of time so if you do just clean the pen periodically.

In case you're wondering, this is a plastic bottle, so if you're traveling and need to take ink with it would be perfect sealed inside a plastic bag.

I'm probably biased because I love purple, and as a newbie, I don't have anything to compare this ink to but I love the color and how the ink writes. It is smooth and fast drying. No complaints. I will be buying more from this brand. Ranked 4, not because of anything wrong, but because i know that I do not know much about bottled ink generally.

Bottled Ink(30ml)
I have tried a number of grey inks and did not want to go with anything that could potentially leave a residue in my pens. This is a rich, dark grey and flows well. Drying time is not fast but good enough for me as a right handed person. I bought the 30ml to see if I liked it and will now buy the full size. Pen Chalet did a great job with shipping - it was fast and well packed.

On my first fill. Using a med nib with good flow the silver sparkle does show up if you look for it. Very subtle. The ink flows well.

Diamine Sherwood Green is a very nice shade of green, serious and formal; a dark green that would never look anything close to brown, blue, grey, or black at all. I can say the colour is a natural lawn or foliage green, very "organic" and it is a great substitute for the usual (and boring) dark blue or black. On top of it, Diamine inks are of excellent quality and cost effective prices.
Diamine Sherwood Green is my new black =D
