Lovely dark green-blue....
Lovely dark green-blue. Looks exactly like swatches. Not overly wet, nor too
dry. It is a perfect color for when you want something other than a boring black
or blue, but can't go too wild. It is a unique and beautiful color that I doubt
could be replicated in a simple ballpoint pen, and I appreciate that a lot, as I
try to take advantage of the fact that I can have pretty much whatever color I
want in a fountain pen.
To get the crazy shading and beautiful red sheen, you do need a broad nib. A
flex, italic, broad, or maybe even medium will show off these qualities best. I
use this in an EF nib at the moment, and the red sheen is nowhere to be found,
which is okay and totally expected. While cleaning off some excess, I did notice
some red sheen in even the smallest little spots of somewhat concentrated ink,
so it looks like it doesn't take much to get that sheen to come out. And that
was on crappy paper, too. This ink is really just amazing.
This ink is one of those that I will always recommend to people looking for a
special color for their pens. It's a timeless, beautiful color that can be used
in any setting. If you haven't tried this yet and you're thinking about it, just
do it. Get it over with. You won't regret it.
