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

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

Deep Dark Blue is a very saturated ink that can show a little shading with finer nibs, and some great red sheen. 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 really deep, dark blue and lives up to it’s name very well. It’s darker than all of my dark blue comparison inks, only Diamine 1864 Blue-Black was darker. I predict that this ink will darken even more, if you keep your pens filled with it for a while.

My review was written on 100gsm smooth coated paper, that is not absorbent, and I saw no spread or show-through. I saw some nice red sheen though. The lines were crisp, but it took longer to dry on this coated surface than on some of the other papers I tried it on.

It slightly stained my hands, particularly near to my fingernails. It took me several washes with bar soap and it was the next day before my hands were clean again. It didn’t stain my pens or the insides of my converters that I rinsed out with warm water as usual.

Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof, but shows some water resistance.

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