Pen: Lamy 2000, Medium Nib
Ink: Diamine Sargasso Sea
Paper: Rhodia dotPad, No. 16 - Top Spiral Bound
More pictures, and more Diamine ink this week. I’ve been looking to try out this ink for some time now, and I’m glad I finally did. It’s a heavily saturated medium blue that really jumps off the page. On top of the vibrant color, the ink has a great red sheen to it. I’m getting a similar vibe from this ink as the J. Herbin 1670: Bleu Ocean. The blues are similar, but the red sheen in this one puts it ahead of the pack. I tried my best to capture some of the red sheen in the pictures below, but it’s much more impressive in person. The ink writes super smooth, especially in my Binderized Lamy 2000. There’s a pretty good chance that I’ll end up with a bottle of this. Also, I went a little crazy with the comparison inks, I realized I have way too many blues currently inked up. The only thing worth noting is that due to the high saturation, I suspect this might be a little tricky to clean out. I haven’t done so yet, but I have a hunch. I’m really enjoying the ink so far, it’s definitely worth checking out.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the review!
