    Default Ink Review: Diamine Cool Green

    Today Iím reviewing a sample of Diamine Cool Green

    Itís an interesting blue/green, slightly dark greenish turquoise colour. This shade reminds me of my Viridian Green pigment. I found it had good flow while I was writing with it. I didnít see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line with the F nib. I saw a couple of signs of woolly line on the Oxford paper with the wet Jinhao M nib. However, that nib had just been dipped into the ink.

    Sadly, on the review form, I managed to get some water from the water test to run all the way across the page before I blotted it. So some of the writing in the Further Notes/Observations has been water damaged.

    Cool Green looks quite saturated, especially with my broader nibs. The M and BB nibs also made it look a darker colour. It exhibited plenty of very attractive shading with all of the nibs I used.

    I found it behaved very well, and I like it. I didnít experience any clogging or clean-up problems with it. In fact clean-up was very easy. It washes off hands with soap and water.

    Itís darker and more saturated than Pelikan Edelstein Jade.

    • This isn't sold as a waterproof ink, but it has reasonable water resistance.
    • Bearing in mind the review form paper I use is thick with a quite shiny surface at 100gsm, and I used several different nibs, this ink dried very quickly with the F nib, but as itís a wet ink it took longer to dry when I used my broader nibs.
    • No smear after dry.
    • It exhibited good flow and I found it very smooth to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.
    • It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottles.
    • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
    • It's a reasonable price.
