This is a pack of 18 international short ink cartridges. Diamine brand ink has a long and rich history, dating back to 1864. Diamine ink is produced in the UK and is made with a gentle formula safe for all fountain pens, and has quickly become one of the most popular and sought-after brands around. We offer a wide selection of ink colors.
I purchased this for use at work, where one of the company's main colors is
purple. This is a beautiful, dark purple with a slight reddish undertone. I
bought it thinking that it would be a purplish black, but found that to not
really be the case. It is very clearly purple. Happily, the difference between
this and other purple cartridges I've tried (like the Pilot/Namiki purple), is
that it is dark enough to read as a "serious" color. This means that in the
correct situations it would make a nice alternative to blue or black ink.
Imperial Purple is the Williams College color. I am going back in June for my
60th reunion and have sent a fellow officer the Purple Hero Lamy Safari
knock-off right off the boat from China together with this pack of 18
cartridges. I have the same pen and ink. Together we will wow our fellow
geriatrics. Beat Amherst. And I have Diamine in four other colors and find it
works well in almost any pen.
