Great workhorse ink

I have three things to say about this ink: first is that the colour has changed in recent years, and according to several reviewers is now virtually identical to Waterman Mysterious Blue. (This is quite likely, as both brands are owned by the same company.) Second is that it is a perfectly acceptable, workhorse blue-black ink with a modicum shading, teensy bit of sheen (only in huge amounts on good paper) and excellent gets-on-with-everyone-all-the-time characteristics. Third, is that at 85p cheaper than Waterman’s version (and 7ml more in the bottle), it’s even more of a bargain than its identical French twin. So if that’s your bag, it’s a steal!

NB: for those who remember the original colour (which looks more like the current picture), Diamine Eau de Nil, Sailor Yama-Dori and Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris are all in the same neighbourhood — EdN is brighter, Y-D is waterproof, and V is slightly darker. They are all, also, gorgeous!

Nib choices for fountain pens
If we show the pen with the default nib selection shown in stock it means we have stock of that pen. If you select another nib size and the website doesn't say "in stock" we can usually supply that pen immediately as we keep extensive supplies of nibs from all our manufacturers.
