So I got this ink yesterday....
November 8, 2014
So I got this ink yesterday. It took me nearly two weeks to narrow it down to
this (80ml is a commitment, after all), and I am quite happy with my choice.
The only pen currently needing fresh ink was my old Parker Sonnet Cisele with a
medium nib. I used to love how that pen wrote, but somehow the black Montblanc
ink I'd been using in recent years kept making it clog. This Diamine asa blue
is wonderful on decent paper. The flow level does seem to make the nib seem
wider on some papers, but without obvious feathering - can't wait to try it in
some of my finer-nibbed pens. At this point I am just so happy to have that
smooth buttery flow restored to my Parker. I am also quite satisfied with the
colour which is strong and clear and not as turquoise as I had feared it might
be - it really does still qualify as blue, albeit not remotely somber.
The worst part of this purchase is really that I now want to try other colours
in this line, and they have so many that look wonderful.
