Welcome aboard! For some reason I associate mint greens with blue undertones, but this seems a nice vibrant green.

:lol:  That was my thought.

 

The closest green's I've seen to this are the Pilot Varsity Green, Thornton's disposable FP green, and Waterman Harmonious Green.  Of course, there's no telling what my monitor is doing to the color, so no way to be sure, but those seem similar to what I see here.

Thank you. I love green inks but thought I would hate this one. Your review makes me want to try it.

Private Reserve is difficult to find in online sites, I'd like to test this colour.
Thanks for your review.

This is surprisingly my only green ink. I love green so I will probably get another green ink next time!

this is my favorite green grading ink

 

Mine is not quite as lemon-lime as your scan looks on my screen.
