Ink Review #103: Diamine Golden Brown

Diamine Golden Brown is one of the inks that was suggested to me when I asked other pen addicts for inks with shading. I purchased my bottle of ink at Cult Pens

The color...

Golden Brown is a medium-light brown with shading. Seasonally, I think this ink is great for the fall.

Longer writing:

I started out using a Pilot 912 FA on Tomoe River, but then switched to a Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight broad nib, because I was having so much trouble with railroading. 

Overall, I think this ink is great for autumn. It behaves really well, except in the flex nib where it has quite a bit of railroading. I really like how much it shades.
