You always do the best reviews and your Japanese kana make me (Omas) green with envy O.o

I'm sorry, that was awful.

Shalom!

Thank you for your kind words, Caffeinated42! People like you make me want to keep doing more ink reviews! ^^

 

I can't blame you for that pun; that's a solid one. :)

Nice review. One of my favourite greens. But mine is less blue.

Thank you! I like your spotches - my desk looks like that sometimes (often).

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Very nice review and beautiful ink!! Will certainly need to try. Thanks for sharing.

 

Thanks, gentlyom! It's definitely worth getting a sample. I'll also be reviewing Lamy Green and Sheaffer Green soon, which should be pretty similar. :)

I only had disappointments with this ink , I had to mix with MB Emerald in order to get a proper lubrication and inkflow.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
