Here is a comparison of all the inks using a Goulet 1.5 nib.

(The last one is De Atramentis Jane Austen, which is a sedated, dark, calm green. It has a definite grayish tint when compared to the Daimine greens here.)

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Thank you Tessy Moon! I enjoyed your writing and descriptions as well as the colors. They're all lovely ~ I am leaning toward Meadow for a wish list candidate.

Thank you all for your kind comments! I really appreciate each one!!! :)

 

I like all three inks. I think they are different enough to each warrant a small bottle.

It is kind of funny because I never thought I'd be a big fan of the color green. You never know what ink you might fall in love with! It can come as a surprise!

I am definitely going to get a small bottle of Meadow and Apple Glory. Kelly Green will be on my wish list for later down the road.

Oh and I prefer Meadow with the flex nib over the broad 1.5 nib. I think the flex really shows off the shading so well!

Apple Glory I love in both flex nib and broad nib - which is nice to have the choice!

Very interesting, thank you for the review...I think I prefer the Meadow for my writing purposes...I have been looking for a green and this may be one of them.

Very nice reviews Tessy Moon. Thank you.

 

I already use Meadow and Apple, and I think I shall now add Kelly to my selection of greens.

 

I find that Meadow, paired up with Poppy Red. is great at Christmas.

I love the comparisons. Thank you.

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

nice to have this comparison. I always thought meadow to be fresher, brighter, lighter. In this review it looks more promising for my purpose..

It really depends on the pen, nib and writing style, I think.

 

I typically write with a heavier hand (gripping the pen tightly and writing with more force) so the ink comes out darker.

This morning I was writing and focused on writing with as light a touch as possible and it came out much finer and lighter. (I was using an Ahab with the flex nib.)

I will try to upload a photo of my notes to show the difference.

 

I will say that compared to Apple Glory, Meadow is not bright or light. I think meadow is in the middle - it has a nice grassy shade, but it also has a good dark component that sort of strengthens the ink. Hopefully that makes sense.

I would not call Meadow a bright green at all. A fresh green maybe. But definitely Meadow is the perfect name that describes it just right.

I asked my husband who is not yet into fountain pens (I am trying to convert him) what he thought of the color. He did say that Meadow looks exactly right for it's name. A thought from someone impartial ;)

 

 

Edited to add:

This is my 100th post! Yay!!! :bunny01:

This is the best I could do! It is really hard to get an accurate picture of the real shading. (I just really need to get a scanner!)

 

This demonstrates how the color varies between light and dark. In some parts the ink is even lighter in real life.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
