Lierre Sauvage - J. Herbin

Recommended Posts

Lierre Sauvage was my first green ink. I still like it and use it more or less regularly. The ink isn't extremely saturated but that's fine for me, I like it this way.

 

If you like green inks you can check my comparison of 48 green inks.

Love that green... sort if medium dark but still vivid

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism :)

Excellent overview of this classic ink (well, for me it's a classic - like you, it's the first green ink I got, and I still like it a lot).

 

Thanks also for the link to your hugely-informative multi-greens comparison post. One question about those - where can one buy Nicpon inks? I haven't seen them before and didn't find the answer in the comments to your previous post.

 

(48 Shades of Green. Hmm, perhaps there's a book in there somewhere...)

@stephanos - Nicpon = KWZI. I believe there are some group buys organized on the forum. KWZI is polish ink enthusiast, chemistry PhD student who brews his own inks :)

 

Thanks for replying so usefully and so quickly! It looks like he has heaps of colours to choose from .

What I like about this Lierre Sauvage is that it is a full GREEN. Not a grey or blue or yellow green it is a GREEN GREEN.

Great review! This might be on the list...Green is my favorite color, so naturally, I will have to get a green ink eventually.

This is a great example of how Lierre Sauvage looks for me. I see a lot of reviews where it's much darker than I get out of any of my pens. It was one of my original ink samples, and I still haven't decided if I want a bottle of it yet.

 

Thanks for another great review!

So many inks, so little time...

I find it looks much darker when using a free-flowing pen that lays down more ink (I had this in a Noodler's Nib Creaper, for example) - but in a Pilot 78G and a plastic Jinhao 599 (both made of green plastic, of course!), it looks a lot more like this review. It's a very pleasant "true" green (for mine) - though I think I have a marginal preference for Noodler's Green Marine, which is definitely darker!

It's a pleasant and predictable green, and one of my first greens (as well as the deplorable Lamy Green), but not my favorite. However, thanks for the great review.

Got a sample of this ink today together with a green Platinum Preppy 0.3mm. Very, very nice. Usually a page of coloured ink puts me off because it looks too busy, but this is very pleasing to the eye. I'll be using this a lot.

Another great review visvamitra! I have a bottle of this ink and it's my favorite green. It's a nice vibrant, wet green ink.

- Lamy Studio All Black <M> with Pilot Blue-Black

That was a great review of the 47 green inks.

 

This ink somehow didn't get bought when I was buying 15-17 green inks in a year and a half........no fault of the ink.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

Thank you for the great review!

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

      @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.
