Here is a mini review of MB's Irish Green with a few MB FPs (145 OB, 144 BB) and some other flexy FP's (Nakaya and Waterman 52).
I really like this ink. I use it often at work, and it was a hit on Christmas cards (along with Hitchcock red). A saturated ink with a great dynamic range (from light to dark green) depedning on the flow of your pen. The ink almost looks black from the Waterman 52 - which flows like a garden hose. Interestingly, the volume of ink that the waterman 52 puts out generates a very nice... glow [not a sheen, more like a glaze]. If you want to see more of this ink in all of its shading glory - check out Battleflex... it was the secret ingredient!!!

I like the dynamic range you're able to get from the ink, I'll have to get myself a bottle next time I'm in Yorkville!
