Here it is, at last - the first of my Stained Fingers on Thursday ink reviews! For this first, regularly-scheduled review, I wanted to post an ink that I enjoy a lot. My review sheets will typically not be as messy/full, as this one is, but I hope that all of the content on this sheet gives you a good feel for this ink's behavior. A few notes on this review:
- Despite it only saying "cartridge" at the top of the page, some of the review is done with bottled Diamine Blue-black, and I found no major difference between the two, as far as color is concerned.
- The Ink Characteristics tests were performed with a Pilot Pluminix, and the results are for that pen, which is a fairly dry-writing fountain pen.
Edit on March 3, 2013: Re-uploaded the scan to include the TWSBI Vac 700.
This review was scanned at 600dpi on an HP Officejet 6500 E710n-z.
Note: Because these scans are done with a light emitting printer, actual colors will, more likely than not, be slightly darker than they may appear, here. The colors shown, here, are probably a bit more reminiscent of what the ink would be like under a bright light or if it were held up and viewed with a light behind it.
