Soft, no grit/mistakes. You do have to advance soft leads more, but you get such a great line...

I can't understand a single word of it-but it is precisely what I needed for this style of drawing... If I could find a Japanese friend locally, would be nice to get some of the instruction/direction....

5.0 out of 5 stars Most character-based ink yet!, November 23, 2015
I have dozens of colors, and more fountain pens, but I have never found a color to write with daily that can be uniquely "me"... I saw the shading and body example on Goulet, and decided to give it a try before trying a bottle of Apache Sunset (Noodlers). It has amazing colors & depth, even with a fine line. I get comments all the time, and wish I could thank Nathan personally.

The perfect compliment? Why... LAMY's Copper-Orange Al-Star, of course!!! Lamy Al-Star CopperOrange Fountain Pen (Fine)

5.0 out of 5 stars [Ancient Copper] Sucks that all color reviews are crammed together..., October 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
THIS IS A REVIEW FOR ANCIENT COPPER

I have only played with Diamine once, and that was black. And blacks are seldom very non-black, so no comment on that was warranted. But this ink is a color that allows you to really see how it layers. A fair paper to show the character of this extraordinary ink is the Staples ARC paper shown in the 2 pics I included. I took one out a bit, and one a little closer. The pen is a LAMY Studio Fine, if that matters.

I'm a non-traditional color ink writer, which makes people ask questions about the pens & inks I use. This one is a stunner, as normally a 'brown' category ink either ends up like dark chocolate (confusing it with a black), or is is in the 'poop' range of colors (sorry to use a technical term there).

I wrote an award on an 8.5"x11" sheet of card stock, and it came across looking like an old, important document, which was precisely what was needed. It really turns heads.

The ink pros:
-great dry speed on hard papers, but it took about 5-8 seconds on really hard card stock.
-Layers like nobody's business (character, i.e. thin & thick lines look different)
-No noticeable bleed on cheap paper.
-Goldilocks is happy: Not to light, not so dark.
-I have yet to smear it with my hand accidentally.
-The color is pleasing to the eye, at least on white. Far less harsh than black, but won't make you strain to see like with Lexington Grey and Gris Nuage...
-If you wrote on some parchment papers out there, this would make it look like a document dug up from the 1700s!
The ink cons:
-Not waterproof, so it will respond to water on the paper after it dries (virtually all inks do).

Non-ink-specific pros:
-The bottle has a low center of gravity (not as tippy)

Non-ink-specific cons:
-The Diamine bottle is unfriendly to those of us who like using all the ink in it.

I usually cycle through my inks, keeping 12-20 pens full & handy with me, but since loading this ink in my LAMYs, I have yet to use another ink/color.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big handed guy says: "Great for tiny hands!", August 28, 2015
I only give this little guy 4 stars for preference reasons. One: It is a small pen when closed or posted, and almost too small to use when open & not posted. The other nag I have is that the pen will advance the lead even though it is closed. I can see that this was a design compromise to allow lead to be advanced when posted, but it is a review... :)

I am so spoiled by the Pentel Graph Gear 1000, which protects the 'pointy end' in a very clever fashion with no compromises in design, that I am forced to be critical of lesser designs. It is a <$10 pen that sells for more than $10, I'm afraid, but if you have small hands you will really like it. At least it shares with the 1000 the ability to protect the pointy end!

Works really well under the bed. Just make sure to measure your bed to make sure it will clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not Levenger, but it's great for the price., August 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My wife LOVES this stuff! I get it here on Amazon for the same price as my local Staples, but Staples never has anything in stock. And good luck finding a Levenger store. Using a fountain pen exclusively, some say it bleeds, but I write with F or EF nibs, and have yet to find any Staples alternative to Levenger unacceptable. Levenger still rocks, but at some point you need to do the cost/worth/value thing...
