Following in the tradition* of 20 (Mostly-)Blues on Rhodia, may I present a bunch of ink wiped onto some very nice paper in a completely unscientific manner in such manner as to demonstrate that really, all of these inks are great:

(Click for larger)

 

All light sources were natural, but the tone may have varied due to reflections, magic, and luck. Still, on my display, this looks true to the paper copy next to me.

 

The inks:

 

7. Sailor Kobe #34, "Sourakuen Tea Green"

G. Noodler's El Lawrence

R. Sailor Rikyu-Cha

E. Montblanc Daniel Defoe

E. Diamine Salamander

N. Sailor Jentle Epinard

S. Noodler's Zhivago

 

* Every 3.5 years whether we need one or not!

Interesting comparison.  Your batch of El Lawrence is much greener than mine.  Epinard is one I wanted to try but at this point I have several inks that are similar to it, including Tokiwa-Matsu, and Platinum Classic Forest Black IG.

Thanks for doing this.

How kind of you! I have never myself interacted with this green, else I would have included it. Perhaps I shall nab a sample, and re-do this. 

 

Of note, I specifically excluded MB Jonathan Swift from this comparison because it's just too gray. Sorry, J-Swif.
