    Default Ink Review: Diamine Classic Green ink

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Classic Green ink.

    Classic Green is a relatively new ink from Diamine and is what I would call an olive type green that leans more yellow than blue. It has become a popular ink within a short amount of time.

    It’s reasonably saturated and exhibits some nice shading. I found it flowed very well with all of the pens I tried it in, didn’t feel dry, and lubrication was nicely smooth across the page.

    My review was written on Clairefontaine 90gsm smooth coated paper, that is not very absorbent, and I saw no spread, feathering, show-through or bleed-through.

    Dry time was within 12-16 seconds on my test.

    • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
    • Start-up: Immediate.
    • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after several days in the pen
    • Clogging: Not seen.
    • Easy clean up from hands and pens.
    • Not sold as a waterproof ink but showed a little water resistance.
    • Available in 80ml and 30ml bottles plus International sized cartridges.

    Yes it is. I've had this ink for quite a while and forgot all about it.

    I was given a sample of the Sailor KN-Tanna Japonensis a long time ago. I used it with a fine Japanese nib, and it did nothing for me. Later I put the ink in a wider nib and LOVED it. If this ink is as similar as you're showing here, I would like to try a sample of this ink in the future.

    I think that Tanna Japonensis might be a tiny bit darker - (slightly more brown), but I was surprised how similar Classic Green is to the Philippines Exclusive ink Dark Olive.

    Clasic Green is the ink I formulated for Diamine a while back. I'm just glad it's been relatively popular.

    In fact TGC helped to formulate both Classic Green and Salamander.

    To be quite honest, I only supplied the name for Salamander. The CG was my 'blend'.
