Paper: Unknown light paper from Wal-Mart.

Pen: TWSBI Diamond 530 w/ Fine nib.

Found that this ink did dry fairly quickly on the paper, but the TWSBI started right back up after a 5 minute wait with the cap off.

The color is a very saturated dusky green. The color definitely lives up to its name.

This is not a water resistant ink (aka bulletproof) but the ink did a fine job of holding to the paper.

Thank you all for taking a look!


EDIT::::::::::::;

I did try this same ink in a Parker 51, the color was the same saturated dusky green using that pen as well as a Lamy Al-Star w/ Medium nib. Noticed a bit more shading with the Medium nib.

Thanks for the review! It looks like Sequoia could be quite similar to Diamine Evergreen. Seems to be pretty well-behaved on cheaper paper too.

That is a nice color, thanks for providing a review. It's nice to see that it doesn't go too dark when used with a fine nib.

I happen to be writing with Sequoia today. A complex, dark vegetal green. I add a small amount of Noodler's Lexington Gray. It adds a bulletproof element without appreciably affecting the color.

No! Really has some complex (if not very dark) shading.

One of the best behaved inks I have used in quite some time. There was no bleed through, and no feathering of any kind.

Never thought to add a bulletproof ink to this one. I agree though... the color is very saturated, and complex.



Thank you all!

Great review! And I love this color; seems to have some ochre mixed in there and produces a unique, sophisticated looking ink. Might not go over well in the office but only the most somber of colours do. Their loss.

I've added this one to my 'Buy It' list.

I've ordered samples of Sequoia and Lexington Gray from Goulet. WOuld be interested in knowing proportions of Gray to Sequoia. Love the dark green, but don't want to make it much darker. Still, additional permanence would be nice tohave
