Thanks for the review.

Still trying to make up my mind about whether or not I like this yellow a green....

working my way through a sample now

 

awesome ink, well behaved, works even in my dry stubbed Baoer 388 (the green lizard one, of course)

 

thanks for the thorough review

I use it in whimsical cards and in regular rotation for my journal writing--it breaks up any dull expanse of prose

Love the review! This is one of my favorites and you presented it very nicely. Thanks for sharing.

Great review of an ink that has been one of my favourites for several years. It has a lovely vintage (perhaps antique?) look on the page and, for me, works best from a pen with a generous Medium or Broad nib. I think that this can be seen from your lovely writing sample. The one thing that I would disagree with is that the colour is drab, the gold element is too bright for that - to my eyes at least.

 

Thanks again for an excellent review.

Ordering a bottle of this, Verdigris and Helianthos with my next pen purchase. Looking forward to it even more now, thank you!

Yeah, the gold in this does for the green what the gold in Noodler's Golden Brown (which I also love) does for the brown.

Thanks for the great review!

 

I absolutely love Alt-Goldgrun. It's one of those inks that is very unique and catches the eye of even non-FP people.

So many inks, so little time...

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
