Review: Akkerman Laan van Niew Oost-Indigo

I am doing an AMA organised by Grouphunt. Go over there to drop your questions. The AMA goes live this Saturday 12th September 8pm to 10pm (GMT+8). Thank you for your support!

This is the 2nd Akkerman ink that I got as part of a mass order some months ago. This is the Akkerman Laan van Niew Oost-Indigo. Whew! What a mouthful. (or rather what a handful?) The name translates to Avenue of New East from dutch. I am not sure what is the significance of the name though. (Check out the comment below for more information on that!)

This ink probably works best in a wet nib or wider nib sizes. The colour can look a little less saturated in my Japanese F nib. Regardless the ink shades very well. It goes from a dark blue to a dusty matte blue. Overall it is a good subtle colour for corporate but it doesn’t really speak to me.

Also looking at the swatch between Diamine Indigo and Akkerman Indigo they look very similar if not identical.
