Today's ink is Diamine Oxblood. This ink has been on my radar for a while, but this is the first time I've gotten around to trying it out. I purchased my bottle of ink at Cult Pens.
Oxblood is a dark red with a some green sheen.
I had no idea this ink could sheen until I tried it in larger swabs on Tomoe River paper. It kind of reminds me of Sailor Jentle Grenade or Oku-yama with the bright green sheen.
Dry time: 35 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 32 pound copy paper, there was some feathering on the broad and flex nibs, but other than that it behaved really well.
I used a broad Vanishing Point on Tomoe River paper. I didn't have any flow issues-it seemed pretty average.
Overall, the ink is well behaved, I just wasn't crazy about the color. If I want a green-sheening red, I would reach for Sailor Jentle Grenade or Oku-yama over this one.
