Excellent deep forest green. This was just the green I was looking for, its not
a grass green. Its truly a dark green. I would describe it as a green that is
closer to pine needle green. Its got vibrancy to it. The ink behaves well in my
lamy pens, pilot pens, and platium pens. It even works well with my EF nib
fountain pen. I highly recommend this ink, plus the weighty bottle has got a
great design to it.
Its name is very accurate. It is just like a faded bouquet. The color is not
bright, think a pale pink. Its hard to read on a page, I mean if the whole page
was written with this ink. I was looking for a pink like this but just a bit
more color; so it not so pale and fragile that a breeze might blown away the
words I write. Overall, the ink behaves and the cute squat bottle reminds me of
an accountant's inkwell from a christmas carol. I'd be hard to get the last of
the ink out of it, but this one won't even get used that much. So I don't have
to worry about that.
Its a bit heavy for my smaller hands, but I can't help using it all the time! I
just end up taking off the cap. I set it aside and write. Without the cap, the
pen is plenty light for me. It writes so smooth straight out of the box. I used
it with the black ink cartridge it came with, then I filled it out with a
different ink, pilot yamabudo. And it still works great. I got the white version
of the metropolitan too. I have yet tried it out, but it's probably just as
wonderful. I glad I got both colors. And I been so happy with the way it writes
that I've been telling my friends about it. Oh, it does write quite thickly for
a M nib, but it's still thinner than a Lamy M nib.
At first its a bit scratchy and I thought I was one of the ones who got a crappy
pens. BUT, I cleaned it thoroughly and took the nib out, air dried everything.
Reloaded it up, and Wow! It works. All it took was a good clean, and I works
very well. It writes smooth now and the ink doesn't clog. The EF is truely an
extra fine. I am considering getting another one. It
