Diamine Prussian Blue on World Craft Freiheit

Ink

Diamine Prussian Blue is a unsaturated blue-black that feels a little on the dry side in a fine nib. It feels fine in a medium nib.

This wasn’t the colour that came to mind when I think of Prussian blue so I was a bit disappointed when I first used it. This colour made me think of old, faded jeans. After using it for a while, I started to enjoy the ink, as long as I no longer think of it as Prussian blue. I also felt it looked especially good when using for sketching.

There is a tiny bit of bleed from the heading but no bleed from the normal writing on this paper. I also do not see any feathering when using Diamine Prussian Blue on this paper.

Paper

WORLD CRAFT is a Japanese brand. I am using the Freiheit Freestyle Grid Notepad. WORLD CRAFT also makes this paper in a notebook format.

It is 21cm x 12.8cm, which makes it the same height as A5 but thinner. The page is marked on front and blank on the back. The front of the page is divided into 5mm grid made up of brown dots. Two thin brown lines, one vertical and one horizontal, divide the page in the middle.

Writing Sample

This is written with a TWSBI ECO-T medium nib.

Paper

I managed to get a LEUCHTTURM1917 2020 planner for a cheap price at the end of the year when shops are clearing the unsold 2020 planners. It used the same 80gsm paper found in LEUCHTTURM1917 notebooks so I decided to use it for writing samples.

Diamine Prussian Blue on Traveler’s Company notebook

Ink

Diamine Prussian Blue is a unsaturated blue (blue black?) that feels a little on the dry side in a fine nib. It feels fine in a medium nib.

This wasn’t the colour that came to mind when I think of Prussian blue so I was a bit disappointed when I first used it. This colour made me think of old, faded jeans. After using it for a while, I started to enjoy the ink, as long as I no longer think of it as Prussian blue. I also felt it looked good when used for sketching.

Paper

Traveler’s Company notebooks uses the same MD paper as Midori notebooks. The two notebooks perform the same when using fountain pens so why am I doing another writing sample on the same paper? Because Midori MD notebooks uses cream-coloured paper and Traveler’s Company ruled notebook uses white-coloured paper. I feel that the colour of the paper also affects how the ink looks, and hence this post.
