Thank you so much for doing this review. I have been curious about Straits inks. I am glad to see someone has been able to get some and try it out. The color reminds me of Callifolio Olivestre.

It would interesting to compare this to Storm Warning, one of the special fundraiser LE inks that the Central Ohio Pen Club was selling at the Ohio Pen Show in November. I just inked up a pen with it but haven't had much chance to use the ink yet (and the paper I use for testing inks is so bad an absorbent that it often does weird things to ink colors -- making Storm Warning look grayish green).

Ohh this is my kind of olive green. I like the gradual shading too. Thank you for sharing this ink with us!

Thanks for sharing! I hadn't heard of this manufacturer before...

Now, that is a very nice green. I'll have to look into it. It seems sort of the color we were expecting Edelstein Olivine to be from the pre-release photos.
It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Now in regard to color difference of Slowpoke Green and Storm Warning. Slowpoke Green appears to be similar to the color of dark olive while Storm Warning is simialer to dark olive drab. Storm Warning has a bit of shading on purpose. To some eyes and in some line widths on some paper they do appear to be the same, but I suspect their formulas are slightly different.
The shading was quite accidental, actually; I didn't plan for it when I mixed the color. But I'm glad it happened, and I did keep it in mind when we did our mixing this past Sunday. Park of Roses has some nice shading too -- it seems to be a feature of Straits inks.
