  1. Colour: olive / murky green Flow: moderate, in that I haven't observed it flowing so dryly that it drew my attention, or so wetly that I needed to adjust what I was doing Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia DotPad 80g/m² paper, looking closely at the thinnest hatching lines, and words/glyphs ‘reverse-written’ with the nib upside-down (i.e. the bottom of the feed facing up) Show-through: Low to nil Bleed-through: Not observed Shading: This ink has a lot of range when it comes to shading, but it's unlikely that you'll get the full range along a single pen stroke. Shading is more apparent towards the drier side of the spectrum (i.e. in terms of how much ink per unit area has been deposited); the wetter the stroke, the more subtle the shading is. The shading effect tends to be well-blended, instead of clearly demarcated between light and dark, along a single pen stroke. Sheen: None observed Shimmer: None Drying time: Depends greatly on the wetness of the line or mark. Given the broad range of shades achievable with this ink, and the different colour intensities strongly reflect the wetness of the ink mark, a light-to-medium olive green mark dries completely under 10 seconds, whereas a dark murky green mark may take longer than 30 seconds to dry, on Rhodia DotPad 80g/m² paper. Smudging after fully dry: Didn't happen when I rubbed my thumb over the hatching/stippling panel and the largest Chinese hanzi chharacters Water resistance: Effectively nil My thoughts: A pretty ink for which I have little practical use. I can't ‘afford’ to use it in a wet pen to write in that dark murky green colour that can be achieved, on account of the long drying time; an ink such as Platinum Classic Ink Forest Green would be far more suitable for that, and being water-resistant to boot. This is probably a good drawing ink, but I don't draw in colour all that much at all. As a tester ink, it would be quite apt to tell me how dryly or wetly a pen writes, but then Sailor Shikiori inks are too expensive to use as tester inks.

    The white card stock was cut from Arttec Como Drawing Pad 210gsm mixed media paper. My eyes keep telling me this is a murky green, closer to what is shown (below) in the manufacturer's image, but in my photos it always comes out more tan/brown. Source: Pennonia

    Kwzi Midnight Green

    Well I don't know exactly when Midnight Green made it over to Vanness, or it became part of the generally available lineup of KWZ inks. visvamitra posted a thread in November 2015 about this ink, but it didn't have a name yet. I know I saw it at Vanness in the fall of this year. I was ordering some KWZ ink anyway, so I saw a new murky green, and of course I had to have it! When I was writing the review sheets initially it didn't seem as dark as KWZ Foggy Green, but that's not really true. It's fairly dark, and definitely darker than Rotten Green or Foggy Green, but not as dark as Sailor Miruai. It doesn't ever appear as black, but a dark, murky green. But it's definitely not a grey with some green in it. Not much shading because it's fairly dark and saturated, but still a no fuss ink. And for those who love the murk, you'll really like this. Pen: Edison Menlo (F-steel) Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet. On MvL, a fairly absorbent paper, the ink dries really fast. Still quite quick in drying here. A lot of the ink lifts when blotted. An amazing complex dye mixture.

    Kwzi Green Gold

    Well in case you don't know I'm a partisan of KWZ Polish ink. I'm usually quite happy with their inks, being wet, and I like many of the colors. KWZ has two "Green Gold" named inks, this one, and "Green Gold 2". This ink is the murky one, the one that broods but still has an inner light. I originally did this review back in April but then never took images or uploaded them. Well after a long delay, here they are. This ink is not as murky as the Rotten Green, Foggy Green, Midnight Green collection in the KWZ line. It has some similarity to the Sailor Kingdom Note Tanna japonesis "Evening cicada" ink, but obviously not the same as that amazing ink. Pen: Edison Menlo (F-steel) Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet. I seem to be lacking an image of the review on the Hij paper. I'll have to take that tomorrow. Not water resistant, but it's not supposed to be. An interesting mixture of dyes.
