I’m back with another pen review! This time it’s an ink that is bringing in the fall season: Diamine Autumn Oak. I picked up this ink to match my Orange Desert Pilot Vanishing Point, and I think it is a good alternative to some of the other heavy shading red-oranges that are out there.
Dry Time: Between 5-10 seconds – pretty fast dry time.
Saturation: Not too saturated. You can see that it does from almost a yellow-orange to a red-orange.
Water Resistance: Very little resistance.
Shading: A LOT of shading! It goes from a yellow-orange to a red-orange and is very beautiful.
Overall, I very much enjoy this ink. I don’t think it will be a daily writer for me or anything, but I am excited to try it out in my Noodler’s Ahab to maximize the shading, and for taking notes in class to highlight different equations or information that I really need.
The ink is a good alternative to Noodler’s Apache Sunset or Noodler’s Habanero. If you like orange-red inks that have a lot of shading, then this is one for you to check out!
