No one has posted a review of this ink since is came out in September last year. So I decided to make it the second ink I review.

I like that this ink is waterproof, and the touch of blue gives this ink a very appealing tone. And of course, being a Texan, and being a long time admirer of the majestic live oak trees here, I am really tempted to try this ink. But I don't know about only 1oz bottles... sounds like this ink could get expensive if used often. :unsure:

It would be nice if, after a pre-determined length of time, the exclusive inks were offered with the others that are found and purchased of that brand. I bought 2 of the 1oz bottles of Texas Live Oak and haven't used all of one yet, but ... I don't use it as often as I do my other green inks.

What a great green! Do you know if it is bulletproof?

This stuff is super waterproof. I don't know if it would stand against bleach or other stuff. But under the running tap, the paper will give before the ink does.

As Watch_Art said it may not be "bulletproof" but if it isn't it is the next thing to it. The night I wrote up this review I took a page I had written with it and left it in a tub of water for three hours. There wasn't a trace of change in the ink. No bleeding, no spread, nothing. I took it out of the water and rubbed with a wash rag. The paper tore but the ink did not change. It acts just like my "eternal" Noodler's Empire Red.

Has anyone by chance compared this shade to Private Reserve Sherwood Green?

 

I did test the Noodler's Green Marine and it was a bit too yellow rather than with a bluer tinge like Private Reserve. Also Private Reserve is more saturated it seems.

 

Finally, does a 'bulletproof' ink harm the pen in anyway since it is so permanent?

 

Thanks,

UL

I was thinking this compares similarly to PR Ebony Green. Noodler's Texas Live Oak looks a little lighter, but both inks have a slight bluish tint to their green. With PR Ebony Green, I get a lot of variation in color and darkness depending on the pen. A drier flowing pen produces a greener line while a wetter flowing pen trends toward black. Dilution produces a nice green that's closer to blue than brown.

Thanks for the comments about PR Ebony Green; I will try it. Texas Live Oak also looks nice but I don't know if it's still available... I own MB Irish Green; maybe I don't need another green but I really like these tones. :rolleyes:

I ordered it from Dromgoole's in early December and they had it then. They also had Texas Pecan and Texas Bluebonnet, but were out of Alamo's Twilight. :(

Thanks for the update! I have been wondering about Texas Bluebonnet ever since reading about it. I don't know what Alamo's Twilight looks like, but I sure like the name. I'll give Dromgoole's a call and hope for the best. :rolleyes:

Texas Live Oak is a beautiful ink, but please note it is very wet. It'll make your nib a size or two larger.

Thanks for the heads-up. In my limited use of Diamine Oxblood, I have the found the same to be true of it. I like the color very much, but I will have to use Clairefontaine or some other hard-surfaced paper to prevent feathering (tried Ox in a medium nib TWSBI). May have to switch to a fine nib, as you recommended.

I just bought a bottle at Dromgoole's and I'm looking forward to trying it! Dromgoole's had several (1oz) bottles on the shelf.
