Thanks for another excellent review, I have the Visconti green also. Nice in small doses but too bright and light to be a staple for me. Were it a little darker, like the Noodlers Forest Green I think I would like it. Wonder what I could mix in to darken it without making the colour go dull and flat?
Regards,
Al

It's nice to see you doing more reviews! I like your format.

This is my favorite green when I don't care about resistance.

Good review thanks.
I must say that my experience of this ink varies from pen to pen , and can be much darker than this.
I like all three Visconti inks I have (Green, Blue, Burgundy)

Great review, thanks.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Thanks. I would buy this ink for my broad nibs, it seems that the shading increases whith broads, isn´t it?

I should note that this is very similar to Pelikan Green. They are indeed delightful in small doses, but too much for an entire page of text. For regular writing, I use Noodler's Forest Green (as included in the scan). I haven't tried mixing inks yet, perhaps will do that when I have more time to play with inks. For now, just alternating among the inks that I already have is enough too much. :)

I agree, the Pelikan and Visconti green are similar in color. And you're right, neither are an ink I'd want to fill a page with, I use them for markup of other text when red is just a little too much.

Thanks very much for your nice review. I found the Visconti green to have more than a touch of blue, and also to be more saturated, and wetter than the Pelikan green.
May you have pens you enjoy, with plenty of paper and ink. :)

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

I went back to compare the two and have to say that I agree with these distinctions completely. Thanks!

It must be my bottle, but I'm just not seeing it. I see more of a spruce-y green that shows some shading. I need to go back and look at my ink tests with it when I'm not so sleepy. I remembered this stuff being much less blue.

Maybe it's just me. Dunno!
