Diamine Sherwood Forest (bespoke)

I don't like dark green ink. I've tried, but it's just not my cup of tea. A FPN friend sent me part of a bottle of this ink in hopes of swaying me. It didn't work. Nevertheless, I know many of you love dark green, so I thought I'd review it for you.

The Details:

  • I'd describe this ink as a very deep dark forest green with a bit of a glow to it. My understanding is that this ink was formulated to be similar to Noodler's Zhivago, but greener. I think it has done it.
  • There is no feathering or bleed through
  • It flows very well and is pretty lubricating
  • The drying time is rather speedy at about 4 seconds
  • There isn't much shading at all
  • It isn't waterproof, but does show some water resistance


No Affil.
