Diamine Woodland Green fountain pen ink tested in an extra fine nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen. Paperblanks off-white ruled journal & Bloc Rhodia.
This ink is more subdued on the off white, brighter on the Rhodia. That's probably typical with most inks, but I find all inks easier to see on off-white paper. Less contrast.
Lots of shading, great flow, nicely saturated.
I usually don''t care for green inks and that makes it difficult to review them becasue what do I say? "It's a nice shade of green that I will likely never use?"
It's good. If you like green inks, it's a very nice green ink.
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.
