    Default Ink Review: Diamine Meadow

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Meadow ink.

    Diamine Meadow is an unsaturated, yellowish green, dye based ink. It’s from Diamine Inks standard range.

    This is a darker and greener shade than J.Herbin Vert Pré/Apple scented and P.I. Chiku rin, and a lighter and less gold/brown shade than R&K Alt. Goldgrün and Sailor Waka uguisu. In fact I don’t have an ink really similar as a comparison.

    I found it quite an unusual ink to write with. Sometimes it shaded a lot and felt wet and lubricated, particularly with my M and B nibs, yet when I first used it in my Lamy 2000 with F nib, it felt drier and less lubricated. It seems to behave quite differently depending on the pen, it’s nib, and the paper.

    • Flow Rate: Good. Felt wet with my M & B nibs.
    • Lubrication: OK - better with M & B nibs.
    • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
    • Start-up: Immediate.
    • Saturation: Unsaturated ink.
    • Shading Potential: An unusual shading ink, quite variable.
    • Sheen: None seen.
    • Show-Through:
      • Tomoe River 52gsm.
      • Tom Bihn lined.
      • Generic 80gsm lined pads.

    • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.
    • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen.
    • Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.
    • Staining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap.
    • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
    • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof but has surprisingly good water resistance.
    • Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.

    Nice review and thanks for your share of the experience.
    I love green ink and one of my favourite inks is emerald green. It is just darker than this ink . I want to try this ink and I have ordered a ink sample.

    You're welcome. I would say that Kelly Green is slightly lighter and Emerald is slightly darker than Meadow. I hope you enjoy your sample.
