The name does justice to the color, very nice forest green. I like that you point out the drying time and feathering/bleeding. Any chance of including water fastness and UV test?

Yes, please show how water and UV affect this very nice green ink. I use Green Marine because it is "near bulletproof". It would be awesome if this was near bulletproof as well.

Eric

In the "Water Test" I have done, I just drag a wet cotton swap through the lines. As you can see, it got some water resistance but wasn't really build for that purpose.

Living in southern Arizona, UV test should be pretty easy for me. How long do you want me to leave it outdoors? smile.gif

I like green inks a lot so I totally understand. What kind of green are you looking for?

That's a nice looking green. Has it been compared to Noodler's Hunter's Green?
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

I got a bottle of this ink myself, and I liken it to 'Emerald City' green, like in The Wizard of Oz. cool.gif

Has anyone used the Diamine Delamere Green? It's my favourite dark green ink, but zero water resistant. This Noodler's Forest green looks similar, anyone has both and can comment and compare them ? Would be much appreciated..

This was one of the first non-black inks I bought. I absolutely loved the colour, but I have just a bit of trouble getting past the feathering it has on cheaper papers. This may have been because I mostly used it in a flex pen, but I think it may just be the ink. 

All things considered however, if you have decent quality paper and are looking for a darker, bolder green, this is definitely for you.

I just bought forest green on Friday and used it to write four full pages of notes all in one go.  Awesome ink.  I didn't like it at first as it was the second choice green for me. It kinda grows on you.  Very good ink.
