Review: Diamine Cerise Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Cerise

Diamine Old English Cerise ink tested in a Paperblanks lined journal with off white pages. EF Lamy Safari fountain Pen.

A bright, bright, bright fluorescent pink.

Good flow, saturated, shading is noticeable.

Reminds me of fluorescent pink crayons, kids markers, bubble gum and Spring flowers. A fun & happy color. Not sure if I would use it on a regular basis, but fun. Works well for notations and underlining.

I'm surprised at how saturated this color is. I just wouldn't expect a pink ink to be so saturated but yet here it is....

Note - this was one of the first Diamine inks I tested so this review is coming along after I've tested some of their other pink inks like Pink & Flamingo Pink. To me, this is the truest pink that doesn't have an underlying orange. But of course, YMMV.

PS - It's a keeper for sure.

Buy Diamine Inks in the UK at The Writing Desk or directly from Diamine and in the US from The Pear Tree Pen Company Ink is sold in 80ml glass bottles, 30 ml plastic bottles, and selected colors are available in cartridge form.

Oh, man. I bought this on a whim thinking I'd get a deeper cherry-red (I should have been able to tell from looking at the bottle...) so I was surprised. I'm not really sure what I'd use this ink for. But it really is that bright, that's for sure!

That is a keeper, it is beautiful! I knew a little girl named Cerise, her Mom loved cherry yogurt while she was pregnant and they were living in France, so the container said Cerise.

I recently saw Diamine's Cerise on Goulet Pens website and decided to order a sample. Initially tried it out in my Pilot Cavalier which has a very fine nib and is a dry writer. You could barely see this ink with that setup. Then tonight I had the idea of trying this Cerise in a wider nib and noted wet writer, my Noodler non-flex pen. Wow! Now I can see it and it is really nice.
