Diamine Raw Sienna fountain pen ink tested in a medium nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen. (The charcoal one.) Paperbanks off-white ruled journal.
Fair warning: This Medium nibbed Safari makes EVERYTHING flow well- but like most Diamine inks, this would probably have good flow in most any pen.
A nicely saturated darker brown, though not as dark as the Chocolate Brown. Warmer than the Saddle Brown.
Diamine has recently changed my mind about brown inks, though I do tend to prefer the reddish brown shades than the cooler browns.
This ink is almost identical to J. Herbin's Lie de The.
