Birmingham Ink's Frank Gorshin Riddle Green. The name alone is worth the purchase.


Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

Stunning ink . . . and I don't even like greens this dark.  Awesome sheen, even with EF and F.  Because it is so substantial, it may not shade unless slightly diluted.  And the bottle is beautiful.  It isn't inexpensive, though.

Noodler's Q-E'ternity aka Bernanke Blue-Black aka "$%¢" is obnoxiously (to me) greenish in shade.  I like it very well otherwise, but I wanted a blue-black and was disappointed in that.  It has many other fine qualities. Maybe you'd like it.

you may want to consider Sailor Miruai green.  it's a deep dark green, closer to black.

Monteverde Jade Noir is a green-black I find quite attractive. The shading you get from it will depend on your nib/paper combination, as will the red sheen that shows up with it.

 

It is on the blue side of the green spectrum, and some people don't like those greens, so be aware of that.

Another ink to add to the list.  thumbup.gif 

The bottle does stand out.

Seconding the Iroshizuku Hotei-son, it also has some permanence qualities to it.

That is if it's still available.

 I like this one quite a lot as well. While it is green, it is a shade I have difficulty describing. Kind of green, dark grey, black. It dries matte, which I really like. I have been through two bottles of this. I love it.

As mentioned Noodler's Zhivago is a pretty good one. My favorite was the old Mont Blanc Racing Green, but I don't think that it is made any longer. Worth trying if you can find some.
