Phidon Pens recently celebrated their ten year anniversary, and teamed up with Diamine to create an exclusive ink-Diamine A Leap of Faith. Thanks to Phidon Pens for sending a sample for review.
A Leap of Faith is a dark bluish-purple with dark red sheen.
In large swabs the ink looks more blue.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in every nib size, and some bleeding in the flex and broad nibs.
A Leap of Faith is closest to Colorverse Quasar. Skull and Roses and Majestic Blue are a bit lighter. Click here to see the Diamine inks together.
Overall, it’s an interesting ink. The color is darker than most of the blue sheeny inks that are popular right now. The sheen is visible in all nib sizes on Tomoe River paper, and in the larger nib sizes on Leuchtturm. Since the flow is slightly dry, I like this ink best in medium and broad nibs.
