Ink Review: Diamine Oxblood
Pen and nib: Lamy 2000 - B nib
Color: Deep burgundy, brown, red. It is named very appropriately! Many people call the color "wine".
Dry time: 20+ seconds. That is not fast... Do factor in that this is a VERY free flowing ink.
Smear when dry: NO
Lubrication: Average. It's a bit more watery than thick. I usually prefer this, as it makes inks easier to clean.
Shading: Low to moderate. Not a lot of shading, and probably none in a XF/F nib. I'll have to test that though...
Bleed through: Moderate. - Just a little, but not at all bothersome.
Notes: A very interesting ink to be certain. I like it, but I don't love it. I just usually prefer a more vibrant, brighter red. It is a very elegant and understated color, and is lovely when paired with some good off-white paper!
And there you have it - Diamine Oxblood. I think the ink is great! I don't want a bottle personally, but there are many who absolutely love this ink. And I can see why.
I hope you've enjoyed this review. Please, do leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts on both the ink, and the review. Your feedback is always appreciated!
