I love teal inks, especially in the summer so I checked for teal inks I haven’t reviewed in my ink drawer and came up with Diamine Steel Blue. It’s a gorgeous bright teal. I purchased my bottle of ink from Cult Pens.
Steel Blue is a bright, medium teal.
In large swabs the ink has a little bit of pretty red sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 10 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
I used a Pelikan M600 Turquoise with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. I really like this pen/ink combo.
Overall, I really like this ink. Diamine does a great job with teal inks, and this one is another winner.
