There are rumors that Diamine makes all of Akkerman’s inks, and debate within those rumors as to whether they are simply re-branded or slightly altered version of Diamine inks. Either way, this ink is very nice.

But it’s also VERY similar to Diamine Majestic Blue…

LOVE this ink. It was the third bottle I ever bought. It softens on the page after a few days, as delicate as the name would suggest.

I’m not an enormous fan of very bright/light inks like Helianthus, but this color in particular is just gorgeous.

Diamine Vermillion is a bright yet surprisingly deep ink, and I like it.

I love pretty much everything about this ink—the performance, the look, the story behind it, the price… 🙂

I found this while sorting through some old reviews that needed posting. The Montblanc sample was written with a very wet writing Waterman. though since Montblanc callously murdered the iron gall formulation of Midnight Blue I guess it doesn’t matter all that much. 😦
