Ink Review: Cult Pens Deep Dark Brown (Diamine Exclusive for Cult Pens)

Cult Pens Deep Dark Brown is one of the 6 inks in the “Deep Dark” range that are made exclusively for Cult Pens by Diamine Inks.

Deep Dark Brown is a saturated ink that doesn’t exhibit much shading due to it’s saturation. I found it flowed very well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt quite wet, and it’s lubrication was really smooth across the page.

It’s a dark brown slightly grey leaning ink that lives up to it’s name very well. It’s darker than most of my brown comparison inks, and I thought Espresso and Macassar were really dark. I like that it still remains brown and doesn’t write as an “almost black ink.”

My review was written on 100gsm smooth coated paper, that is not very absorbent, and I saw no spread, show-through or bleed-through until I wrote with the Lamy B nib, then I noticed a few dots of bleed-through plus a little spread.

It’s not sold as a waterproof ink but showed a little water resistance.

It washed off of my hands easily with bar soap and water, and didn’t stain my pens or the insides of my converters that I rinsed out with warm water as usual.

Available in 80ml and 30ml bottles plus International sized cartridges from Cult Pens web-site
