    Default INK REVIEW IN BRIEF: DIAMINE 2021 INKVENT - ALL THE BEST

    INK REVIEW IN BRIEF: DIAMINE 2021 INKVENT RED EDITION:

    ALL THE BEST


    In 2019, Diamine made strategic marketing move by offering the first of its kind Inkvent Calendar for the holiday season. It was extremely popular and sold out quickly. But later, they introduced each 2019 Inkvent inks as the Blue Edition in a new and beautifully shaped glass bottle to be marketed on a regular basis. Again, the response was overwhelming. Very likely because of the Covid pandemic, the Inkvent Calendar was not introduced for the 2020 holiday season. But in late September of 2021, Diamine announced the 2021 Inkvent Calendar Red Edition. This Inkvent Calendar included slightly larger bottles in the Calendar for the first 24 days and a regular sized 30 ml bottle for the Day 25 ink. In addition, Diamine produced more 2021 Calendars, which are still obtainable at some pen stores.

    There have been numerous introductions of the 2021 inks shown across the internet - myself included here on fpgeeks - including many YouTube videos. The intent with this Review in Brief is to perhaps give the reader a bit more information about one of the inks that I particularly liked from the Calendar.

    Diamine’s All the Best (ATB) is classified as a Shimmer and Sheen ink. It was presented as the Day 25 ink and it appears that Diamine threw everything in. There are tons of blue/purple shimmer with lots of greenish gold sheen on a nicely saturated dark red ink. This is a nicely behaved ink. I had no hard starts with the ink, nor did it clog the nib until the very last of the ink was in the nib. It did clog then. The ink itself is not lubricated, and is only slightly dry, but flows quite nicely, especially on Tomoe River paper.

    The pen used for the brief review is a Lamy Safari – Dark Lilac with a broad nib. And the paper that I chose for this review is Rhodia 80 gsm paper. If you wish to see how the ink looks on Tomoe River or Fabriano Ecoqua paper, please refer to my Musings thread (https://fpgeeks.com/forum/showthread...kvent-Calendar).

    Also, all images were taken under LED light with a Nikon Z50 mirrorless camera with a Nikon DX 16-50 3.5-6.3 lens, then cropped and Ai processed using Luminar.

    Overall, this is a very fun and festive ink, perfect for the winter holidays.
