Since I do not own too many green inks, I cannot show very similar inks to compare. Instead I thought it would be useful to show where it lies in the spectrum between yellow/brown leaning greens like Krishna Ghat-green/ Sailor Tokiwa-Matsu and a teal leaning green like Diamine Aurora Borealis... Overall, I'd say its a pleasant color though not a very uncommon one - nothing screams out as unique or special about the colour or the ink's abilities but it is a nice pleasant green if you want only one green ink, and being Noodler's it is pretty inexpensive. Shame about the feathering though, this is not an ink which you'd pick if you write often on absorbent or average to cheap paper. Even when it doesn't quite feather, it spreads quite bit on absorbent paper. As my pic below shows - the line width of this ink coming out of my PenBBS mini-fude F is wider than even my medium Jowo, Bock or Montegrappa nibs (generally I find the mini fude to write slightly broader than a western fine on down strokes and like a western fine on side strokes). Note that probably 90% of my inks do not feather or spread on this Muji copy paper. Another picture of the feathering on cheap copy paper Note: the color variation in the 'whites' of the papers is native to the papers. I set white balance on a white card and then didn't edit for each picture - but some casts cannot be ruled out.
