Review: Diamine Presidential Blue Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Presidential Blue

Diamine Presidential Blue fountain pen ink tested in an extra fine nibbed Lamy Accent fountain pen. Paperblanks off-white ruled journal.

Great flow, similar in saturation to China Blue, but greener than China Blue. Some shading is evident.

Running out of things to say about blue inks.... To me, this blue just isn't anything special. Not similar to Lamy Blue, Sailor Blue or any of the other Diamine blue inks.

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.

How would you compare Diamine Presidential Blue to Private Reserve American Blue?

I can't say because I've never tried the American Blue...

Presidential Blue is one of those inks that takes time to warm up to.

I have it in a Parker 51 and starting to like this ink the more I write with it.
