I like the color very much, although green olives in the Netherlands have a different color...  :D

:D  That is already closer!

 

We have apples, Golden Delicious, they are yellow and when getting too old turn brown,

they cover the whole spectrum of this nice ink! Yellow, golden, brown.

Not a color for me.  Plus, it's not all that legible on the page.  But thanks for the review.

Absolutely! And as I said I like the color very much, very usable for drawing.

 

I like the dark outline it gets when using a lot of ink, you can see it on the dip pen and on the swap.

I can only surmise that that is why they called it Green Olive, rather than Olive Green, perhaps knowing that it doesn't fit the idea that olive green usually communicates. Interesting color indeed!
