Review: Diamine Indigo Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Indigo Ink

Diamine Indigo fountain pen ink tested in a .7 Cursive Italic (Binderized) Pelikan M200 fountain pen. Paperbanks off-white ruled journal.

Like a thinner, lighter version of the Prussian Blue. Looks like a vintage color that would be great for fancy calligraphy. Like what you might find in an antique journal or ledger. (Notice the way I'm inspired by this ink/pen combination to write using all kinds of fancy flourishes.)

Very nice flow, some shading. I'm on the fence with this color. I like it in this pen but usually I prefer more saturated colors.

Diamine inks provided by Diamine for the purpose of review.

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.

That's some nice ink. I normally write with Diamine Registrars Ink, I love it's antique colour but your right about this Indigo, it certainly has that vintage feel about it.
I think I might be tempted to pick up a bottle.
