Diamine Prussian Blue

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

Diamine Prussian Blue is a timeless classic. This color will fit most situations and uses. While I’m not crazy about it, I reckon it’s more than decent ink. It’s reliable, well behaved and nicely performing everyday ink.It has muted tone that I find pleasing, the flow is satisfying and the line is smooth. I remember I experienced some bleedthrough on Moleskine but, frankly, it’s crappy paper and almost every ink ever crated will cause bleedthrough or feathering on it.

One thought on “Diamine Prussian Blue

  1. This is probably my all-time favourite ink. Good for all occasions, well behaved, timeless colour. Is is blue? Is it grey? Depends on the pen, paper, and position of the Moon in the sky.
