Diamine MD paper Midori

Diamine Writer’s Blood on Midori MD

Ink

The ink is a dark maroon colour with a wet flow. This ink was created for r/fountainpens on Reddit. When the ink launched, it created quite a buzz and didn’t take long to sell out on store shelves. Perhaps because fountain pen users are all writers in some form, the name resonated with many people.

As with any trending product, there were some who loved it and some who thought it wasn’t worth the hype. I thought this was a lovely ink, but it wasn’t in the “omg must buy” category for me. When I did the writing samples, the colour reminded me more of prune juice.

On Midori MD paper, there is little shading, very little sheen, no feathering and no bleedthrough.

I enjoy the wet flow and the colour of the ink. The orange-brown range of this ink makes me think of rust, but ancient copper sounds better than rusty metal, doesn’t it?
