Diamine Woodland Green Review

Diamine is always a solid choice for fountain pen ink and one of my favourite ink brands. They offer loads of different colours and are really well priced.

I came across Diamine Woodland Green as part of a Diamine assorted pack of ink cartridges. Woodland Green was part of the Floral pack with lots of lovely bright shades including Orange, Passion Red, Mediterranean Blue and Turquoise. I bought the assorted pack to try several different ink colours that perhaps normally I would not have chosen. Woodland Green was one of the brilliant finds.

I have always struggled to find a green ink that I wanted to try. It has to be dark enough to be legible on the page and easily visible for the partially sighted such as myself. Diamine's Woodland Green fits this bill well. It's a lovely dark green ink colour that has some gorgeous shading.

I have used this in cartridge format only predominantly in my Kaweco AL Sport. Even with the fine line of Kaweco AL Sport you can see some of the shading present in Woodland Green. You get a traditional bright green colour in the lighter tones and then the darker tones look almost emerald. 

As with many other Diamine inks I have used the flow on this ink is great. It's a nice wet ink and I have never had any issues with skipping.

If you like green inks this a must for your collection. If you've never used a green ink I think it's a great starting point. The name of this ink is very apt, it reminds me of the woodland areas where I live. 

Unfortunately I don't have many other green inks to compare this to, but I am very glad I went with this green colour option. It's beautifully bright and bold.
