Diamine Night Sky (50ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely shimmery black I used Night Sky in my TWSBI Diamond 580 with 1.1 stub nib pen last year to address all my Christmas cards. It performed well and I had no problems with clogging or cleaning the pen. I did not need to dismantle the TWSBI to clean it, either, just flushed it using the twist mechanism. I also used Magical Forest to sign the cards, and had no problems with it. I had better luck with these two colors retaining their shimmer when dry than I did with some of the other colors or with Emerald of Chivor. I did turn the pen over a few times every now and then to mix the sparkles, and of course shook the bottle of ink before filling the pen. I plan to use these inks again this Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamine Night Sky I do not have enough words for this ink. This Diamine Night Sky Shimmer ink was my very first Diamine Ink purchase. I absolutely adore this ink. The ink is smooth, and does not really clog my Platinum Fountain pen. It is like one of the Metallic Inks from the Sakura Gelly Roll Pens, but with the option of having fine lines. Although the fine nibs make it a tad hard to see the glitter, the ink is still a beauty none the less. This ink looks fantastic on Clairefontaine Paper. I cannot wait to try more of these inks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For when just black isn't enough. I love it. Works best with a broad nib. I gently shake my pen before I start writing to get the ink mixed up and first write a tiny on scrap paper. I do wish it had more shimmer to it, but that's just personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving the shimmer! I've been using it with a medium nib and Rhodia and I really like how subtle the shimmer is. It looks black enough to be professional, but also has the cool shimmer to it. Had it on a TWSBI extra fine and had a lot of trouble starting as would be expected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good ink, but the shimmer is tricky to get. This is a very nice, well-behaved black ink. It must be well stirred or shaken immediately before loading into a pen, and the pen must be frequently agitated during use to keep the metal flakes in suspension to achieve the "shimmer" appearance. An ink I would recommend, but only with caveats - it is a tricky, finicky ink to use to best advantage, and is certainly not appropriate for typical business use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I always look for ways for my penmanship to stand out. With the little bit of shine that appears, I will get a lot of attention when I fill out my forms at work. Very smooth writing and does not bleed on cheap paper, like some other inks I've used. I wish it was a darker black, but the shimmer makes up for it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks shimmer The shimmer must show on only the highest quality paper. I've written with the ink for some time and I've yet to see and shine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice color. High maintenance. This ink is really sharp. A nice black kind of dark gray ink. It has a nice shimmer to it and it works well with the color of the ink. It does require a bit more maintenance which is not uncommon for this type of ink. That however is not a reason not to use it.
