Review: Diamine Ultra Green Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Ultra Green

Diamine Ultra Green Fountain Pen ink tested in a Paperblanks journal with off-white paper - and in a Fine nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen. (This one has a very dry nib)

Similar to Herbin's Lierre Sauvage, it's a shamrock green - St. Patty's Day green.

Great flow with nice shading. A really nice ink but I'm not that into green inks. For every day writing, I'm still favoring Diamine's Emerald the most.

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.

Thanks for another great ink review! I really love green inks, I didn't think I did till I re-discovered fountain pens, since then the collection seems to be growing like it's got a mind of its own! ;)

Thanks for the review and photo of different green inks. I like using green ink for personal writing (maybe because I'm a mortgage lender LOL) so this is very helpful.

Also, thanks for showing where you can buy these inks. Sometimes I'll read an article about a pen or ink with no mention on where you can actually get it.
