Very difficult color to "catch", scanner didn't succeed so it is a picture...

Thanks for the review.  This one I can pass on, I think, since it appears to lean a little more blue than I tend to care for in greens (although I do rather like Schenley Park Thicket Green).

Yes well... for me there is not really blue in it, more grayish, Funny thing is the color is really difficult to catch. Calibrated my scanner 3 times, and it is a pretty good one, but my scanner couldn't get it right neither.

It’s not really blue in person. It’s a darker dirty grayed green. I’d say it’s more toward military green than blue. Great water resistance and nice shading.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”
