Diamine Aqua Blue
Pen: Hero 9018 Fude Nib
Ink: Diamine Aqua Blue
Paper: Kyokuto F.O.B. COOP B5 Dot Grid
- Reminds me of Sheaffer Peacock Blue
- Beautiful shading
- Great flow
- I want to swim in it
This one is a real winner. The awesome shading, great flow, and best of all, it reminds me of Sheaffer Peacock Blue (discontinued). This pen and ink combo is pretty awesome too. The wet fude nib really shows off the shading capability of the ink. Another positive for me is the brand, Diamine, which happens to be my favorite ink manufacturer. There is really nothing bad I can say about this ink at all, I love it. If you’re searching for a great turquoise, or a replacement for the now discontinued Peacock Blue, don’t sleep on this one. Thanks again again again to Azizah over at Gourmet Pens for sending this one over in the giant sample package she sent.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the review!

Another great review. The shades of blue seem to be limitless and I’ll be adding this one. Thanks Ed
Thank you! I may have to add this one to the collection when my supply of Peacock Blue runs dry.
That looks like a gorgeous turquoise. Thanks for the review, I’ll have to try a sample.
I never had a chance to try Sheaffer Peacock, but there was a good following of that ink.
And as for that pen, I read the following line somewhere and it gave me a chuckle:
“Will work for Fude”
Haha, some pen humor is always good.
The pen and ink combo was awesome, I’ve been using the Hero for more and more ink reviews.
Dear Ed, maybe you should warn people to wear their shades. It is soooo bright 🙂
Thank you for the great review!
Thanks for reading!
This one is definitely super bright, I love it.
YAAY! Another winner! So glad you like this one – I totally want to swim in it, too. LOL. That definitely goes in the pro category. It’s just so gorgeous. Looks spectacular in a super wet flex nib too.
I use this with a Rhodia A5 Dot pad and Pilot Capless as my everyday combination at present.
Good review, Thanks
Nice! I’ll have to try this out in my Vanishing Point medium nib, it sounds like a great combo.
