Ink Review: Diamine Hells Bells (Germany Exclusive)

Today I’m reviewing Diamine Hells Bells ink. Diamine Hells Bells is a German market exclusive ink designed by Stephan Lucht in cooperation with Diamine and I’ve seen it available in Fountainfeder, Germany. It may also be available in other German stores that he supplies ink to. Occasionally these can also be found on Amazon.

It is a saturated, green leaning, slightly teal, blue ink with a heavy red sheen. That is more sheen than a “standard” ink. Diamine Hells Bells is a different shade of blue than other blue inks that I have. It’s in between a blue and teal ink. Continue reading “Ink Review: Diamine Hells Bells (Germany Exclusive)”

Ink Review: Cult Pens Colosseum New Wonders of the World series (Diamine Inks exclusive)

Today I’m reviewing Cult Pens Colosseum ink, one of their latest Diamine Inks exclusive inks. It is the first of a new series of inks inspired by modern Wonders of the World and by ‘modern’ they mean still in existence. This is what Cult Pens says about this ink:

“The Colosseum in Rome is a lot older, having been built in the 1st century by order of the Emperor Vespasian. It was capable of holding up to 80,000 spectators, who gathered to watch the gladiators, animal hunts and mock battles, and is the largest amphitheatre ever built. Our ink is a pale ochre, the colour of the travertine limestone and volcanic rock form which the Colosseum was constructed.”

Ink Review: Cult Pens Taj Mahal New Wonders of the World series (Diamine Inks exclusive)

Today I’m reviewing Cult Pens Taj Mahal ink, their latest Diamine Inks exclusive. It is the first of a new series of inks inspired by the modern Wonders of the World and by ‘modern’ they mean still in existence. This is from the Cult Pens newsletter that introduces this ink:

“The Taj Mahal is one of the world’s most iconic structures and was built in India in the 17th century by Shah Jehan in honour of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. It took 22 years to construct, and its white marble includes pietra dura – a type of mosaic – which features semi-precious stones. Our ink is a deep and beautiful blue to represent lapis lazuli, one of the stones included.”
