Diamine Teal fountain pen ink tested in an extra fine nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen. Paperblanks off-white ruled journal.
I think this color is pretty close to the Umber but a bit more blueish... or maybe grayish.
This pen is a slightly dry writer but the Teal is flowing great. Some shading, would probably be more evident in a wider nibbed pen.
Nicely saturated, it's a classy color. Not sure I'd have a use for it though - green inks just aren't really for me.
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.
