Throwback Thursday: Quick Look at TWSBI Diamond 580 - Orange + Akkerman #22 Hopjesbruin

Considering it's already Saturday, this Throwback Thursday is definitely late. Unfortunately, I've been tied up with a couple days of meetings and travel. Better late than never, I suppose.

Today's Throwback is a look at another pen and ink combo I used during the summer.

Handwritten Review

Pen: TWSBI Diamond 580 - Orange EF
Ink: Akkerman #22 Hopjesbruin
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid

Still a very interesting colour. I'm not sure what gave me the idea to get this ink. It's interesting in that it goes down thick and syrupy like maple syrup but dries to a lighter colour. Or is it that the ink has now darker after a month of heat exposure? Dunno. Maybe there was just lots of ink in the feed.

Anyway, it was okay in that pen. But felt a bit dry. Or rather, I've felt more lubricated inks in this pen. It's ok, just feels toothy. But then, it is an EF nib. Go with it. Or go with a more lubricated ink. I think I will do that next time.

Anyway, it's an interesting colour. It's not saturated. It's not a bright orange orange. Brown orange. Yep. Well-behaved on Rhodia.

Closing Comments
I have to try this ink in another wetter writing pen. Maybe the soft wet titanum nib on the Tactile a Turn Gist would suit this ink better. The variation in ink colour from beginning of the month to end of month is quite curious. I'm gonna look at this some more. I didn't notice it so much as I was using it over the month.
