Lgsoltek - that is brilliant, and an excellent shade of green.

My perfect green is Diamine Sherwood.  It goes down nearly green-black, but in a day or two, it brightens up to a nice forest green only slightly darker than Noodler's Gruene Eel.  I love it.  If it was clearly lighter, I probably would only use it for markup.

In addition to Goulet and WonderPens, you might try Anderson Pens.  Shop their samples, because that's where they post swabs.  I wish they also did when browsing bottles, but they don't.  And they have 600 or more inks to choose from.

Yes! I thought it was a bit too cold/blue for me, so I got #27 Bezuidenwoudgoen instead, but that was gorgeous.

Brilliant! That should be made into a poster. Have you done the other seasons?

No that's the only one. But you've just given me an idea!

Ha.  I did not need to see that.  I love greens more than anything else.  That is lovely.  The original poster mentioned Kelly Green.  I do have it, and like it very much.  It is not too light for me.  Some other ones were, but not Kelly Green.  The best thing you can do is get SAMPLES.  I also have Sailor-Tokiwa matsu, Miruai, R&K Alt goldgrun, plus Edelstein Jade.  The Jade seems to have a greenish blue tint to it, so you may not like that one.  I also love the Mont Blanc Irish Green, but you already have that.  I don't have it, but hope to get it in the future.  Another one to consider is Pelikan 4001 Dark Green, or Diamine Sherwood Green.
