Parker Penman Emerald vs Graf von Faber-Castell Moss Green

I was planning to do this comparison for a while (about 8 months). Why did it take this long?
Good question....and it doesn't even matter I think.
Here it is :lol:

On the scans you can spot the difference somewhat easily, but to the naked eye they are very similar.
The Emerald is a more vivid green, and the Moss Green is just a bit more "mossy" I'd say. Haha
Both of them shade nicely and behave great, no problems at all.

I love the Maruman paper, because its very smooth, but it bleeds pretty easily with a wetter nib.

A little bling and a little moss (and some bleed-through, but as I said earlier its just the paper)

This is on some thinner notebook paper.

A bit of Clairefontaine.

 

They both can have a nice pinkish/purplish sheen!

Some extreme moss sheen remained from an ink drop.

And a little surprising result (at least for me) from the Moss Green (on the left):

The is a whole lotta blue in the GvFC.
The Emerald also showed a little blue what can be seen on the previous scan.

I hope you found this interesting :happy:

Nice colors!

 

As an aside, can I ask where you bought them? I see we're both from the same country, and I've found it very hard to get hold of any fountain pen ink at all. Some stores sell basic colors (blue + black), but that's about it.

Wow, that's a great comparison!

 

Definitely not the same ink, but close enough to pass regular use.

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

A very interesting comparison between the two inks. Penman Emerald Green has been my signature ink since I found it shortly after it came out back in the 1990's. I am down to my last bottle of it. I think I will be investing in a bottle of Graf Von Faber Castell Moss Green ink in the near future.

Thank you so much everyone! :happy:

Exactly!

 

Very good comparison. I like Penman Emerald but Moss Green is - for me - green no. 1.

I have to say, I feel the same.
I generally prefer inks that are not too vivid, and I feel the Emerald is just a hair more vivid than what I'd like for everyday use.
Not saying that I don't like it, its beautiful, but the mossy green works a little bit better for me.
(I could also say that I like it a bit dirty, but I think it would be too ambiguous, so I won't do that...)

I'm happy if this could help you to find the possible substitute! :thumbup:
