Review: Diamine Washable Blue Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Washable Blue

Diamine Washable Blue fountain pen ink. Tested in a fine nibbed Pelikan M200 fountain pen. Paperblanks off-white ruled journal.

I have officially run out of things to say about blue ink. This, like many of the others, is a medium blue that looks like blueberry. A medium to dark blue, moderately saturated ink with great flow.

Does not look like Lamy Blue, Sailor Blue, any of the Herbin blues, nor any of the other Diamine blues.

I like the China Blue better than this one. China Blue seems to be a bit darker and more serious looking.

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.

I wonder how washable this ink really is. I've never tried one that said "washable" and then did so after a stain. I always seem to stain with inks that should say "will remain till your species is superseded by sentient rats."

Thanks for the ongoing reviews of Diamine blues, I check your blog before I go out and buy the bottle I'm interested in.
