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).
-The bottle has a low center of gravity (not as tippy)
-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.
Most of you by now are just curious as to what color this is exactly; so here's it plain and simple. Dried blood. With a sample of ink in front of my I can tell you that it has primary tones of deep, sinister red and a burnt brown. In dark light, this ink appears more as a black-red, but in the direct sunlight it appears more of a brown-red. If you're looking for a unique ink to fulfill your desires, look no further. This ink has satisfied me every time I've picked up my pen.
If I must find one negative aspect to this ink, it would be cleaning. Cleaning this ink from a pen can prove a challenge to an inexperienced fountain-pen owner. It is trickier to clean out from a pen, especially if you are planning to switch to something much lighter than this color. With that said, any red that I have owned has been a challenge to clean out, especially Noodler's Widowmaker and Red-Black Bulletproof. As far as "red" inks go, this actually was relatively easy to clean compared to the others in my collection.
So, that brings me to my final words on this pen; unique color, fabulous flow, and the customer experience? Exceptional.
I have now tried this ink on many of my pens (Parker Sonnet, Montblanc 146, Monblanc Chopin, Pelikan M800, M600, and the cheap Jinhao 450, 500) and to me the ink is indeed prone to drying out and this is unlikely due to the specific pen used as it consistently dries out after the second day in most all pens. In the best of conditions, it will be a very dry start requiring coaxing to get the pen to flow again and in the worst case it is totally bone dry with caked red residue in the nib/feed. Some pens fared better than others. with the little Parker Sonnet writing well after overnight and was only dry starting after two days of resting. Jinhao 500 was the worst- totally dired out overnight. I like the the ink color, so it gets 3 stars.
Fairly thick, rich, reddish-brown similar to dried blood (black undertones), not much shading unless you look very hard.
