Alright, this is an ink that I meant to review long ago and then because of some sad tech confusion it didn’t happen. But, now it’s ready, perhaps a bit too late. Yesterday there was a post on the Organics Studio Facebook page saying that they are discontinuing Gregor Mendel, so all that’s left is what’s out there…
This ink is really neat. It’s colored using chlorophyll, which is the same thing that makes plants green. It’s also a pigmented ink, which makes it very water resistant, as you can see above. On the other hand, this is a far less saturated ink than some other modern ones, but I still find it readable enough for daily use, especially if you are using it in a broad or stub nib.
Flow was good, it was easy to clean, and I really can’t think of a single downside to this ink. It even smells good, with a slight minty scent that’s a refreshing change from the chemical-y smell we are all probably familiar with at this point.
Like I said, this ink is now available in pretty limited quantities, so I would say that if you want it, get it now. I can’t quite decide if I would use it enough to justify buying a full bottle or not, but I’m sure that if I wait a few more days the decision will probably make itself for me.
This ink was purchased with my own money and I am not being compensated for this review in any way. All opinions expressed above are my own and you are free to disagree with them if you wish.
