Diamine Bilberry Makes Trouble

04/05/2015

The images tell the tale. Diamine Bilberry left its mark on my Sailor 1911 and the converter. Hrumph!

    • Since I test colors, I never dump an ink. However, I won’t use Bilberry in any pen I value just to be safe. If that weren’t the case, it would get tossed. There are so many other Diamine inks that are fantastic like Mediterranean Blue, Vermilion, Sepia and Emerald. Never had a problem with any of them though they are not super-saturated which may well be the difference.

  5. Wow. I’ve never had that sort of trouble with a Diamine (even Sargasso, which I’ve been treating as a more flushable version of Majestic Blue).

    • Diamine has been very reliable in my experience though I have seen a converter or two stained by highly saturated colors. That doesn’t bother me except in a demo pen. None of the original inks or any of the browns have been problematic though I certainly haven’t tried every color they offer. That number would be huge!
