Manufacturers since 1864, Diamine Inks relocated to this purpose built ‘state of the art’ factory in Liverpool in 1925, where they successfully carried on using the traditional methods and formulas for ink production. Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course
Midnight is one of my Diamine favourites. It is a moderately saturated dark blue with a hint of indigo. The color is not particularly affected by the color of the paper – it looks well on all of them The darkness is more evident with a medium – broader nibs, and it tends to write a bit more “wide” than when using other inks – no, not feathering, just “fuller” lines. It flows really well and exhibits perfect flow qualities and smoothness.I enjoy the color and the writing experience. It’s well behaved and the color is quite intriguing.
