Diamine Ink Cartridge(18pk)
A generous number of cartridges for the price! Great for when I'm on the go and need some nice wet Diamine ink for my pen. I have the Ancient Copper and my son has a variety pack and we are very happy with them.

Diamine Bottled Ink(30ml)
I love this color. It's a unique shade of red with orange undertones that somewhat resembles dry blood. It's not at all alarming on the page and is suitable for professional work. It's not water resistant at all however.

Diamine 150th Anniversary
I love Diamine inks. They’re wet, but not too wet and their colors are vibrant. They work well with different pen brands. It’s hard not to hoard all their colors because I haven’t had a dud yet.

Diamine Bottled Ink(80ml)
I have tried several Diamine bottled inks, and plan to try many more. Although I have liked all of the shades I have sampled, there are three in particular that I will never be without. Each is stunning on every paper I have tried it on, from Rhodia to Clairefontaine to 24 pound copy paper. These are well-behaved, fast-drying, and spectacularly beautiful colors. The first is Red Dragon, which is a medium-to-dark red that shines like lacquer. The second is Pumpkin, a rich, bright, and brilliant orange. And the third is Imperial Purple, a deep, royal and dignified purple. I buy over 90% of my pens, inks, and accessories at Pen Chalet because they have the best prices, the most attractive discounts, and their customer service is unparalleled.

Diamine Bottled Ink(30ml)
Ancient copper is a beautifully indescribable shade of orange/red/brown w/copper sheen (appropriate!) in the right nib. Great value, easy flowing, "unbreakable" plastic bottle, Diamine always seems to do a great job w/all their inks.

Pen Chalet got this order to me in 2 days! They included all kinds of coupon codes for future discounts & kept me informed the entire time my package was in transit, they are one of the most useful places to shop, especially for military, giving 15% off which is the highest consistent discount i've been able to find for fountain pen stores. God bless (Matthew 5:45)!

Diamine 150th Anniversary
Just used this bottle to decant a 30ml bottle of Ancient copper into, since the plastic bottle is harder to fill from. Filled bottle fully, no cracks/leaks/inconvenience, easy removal of the labels on each, easy fill from bottle corner, no complaints for $1!

Diamine Bottled Ink(30ml)
Diamine Writer's Blood- Terrific color and name. The color is dark enough to be considered formal or professional like blue or black. Yet it is a beautiful color. Nice flow of ink as well. Wish the price were lower though as in UK they cost less than half of US.

Diamine Guitar(80ml)
I got a bottle in the Honey Burst shade. Perhaps I thought it would look like the famed guitar colors, I was taken aback by its warm golden color-sans brown. But I appreciate it now for its peerless shading attributes. If you like Noodler's Apache Sunset, but dislike the long dry time, Honey Burst is a slightly warmer, more golden version with better shading; though it may feather a bit in areas of heavy deposition on some papers. From a deep pumpkin orange, lighter orange squash, deep golden honey to a pale yellow gold are all seen in a single stroke; especially beautiful in a flex nib pen, it's a keeper. Dry times for me have run to about 20 seconds on average, about 1/2 that of AS, which broadens its usage. Well done.

Diamine 150th Anniversary
What was I thinking??? Another RED ink! It works ok though, just it looked better on screen then it does in person. Maybe I should change the paper I'm using it on? Still, if you like red, this is nice, and it's dark red.

Diamine Blue Edition(50ml)
Loved the bottle, but Red ink isn't to my liking. I usually don't get red ink of any sort, but I wanted the bottle, and figured I could put up with the color.... ... .. . . It worked fine, and I inked it up in a PIlot Custom 74 with a B nib. Dark, deep "Poinsettia" red color. No complains about the ink as far as usability. (cool bottle ;-) )

Diamine Bottled Ink(30ml)
Diamine's "Scribble Purple" is a truly dark purple-- almost black, just like the picture shows. The ink flows well from a medium nib, but dry time is a little longer. It may work better in a fine nib.

Diamine Shimmering Sample(4ml)
This ink is just beautiful and writing with it a dream. It flows well and the sample is just right to try before buying. I bought this along with several others. They came before expectations, were packed and even split into the separate manufacturer. Can't ask for more. Plus they answered my questions right away. The Pen Chalet will be my first place to check for any of my wants.
