Sheaffer: Skrip Green


Recommended Posts


I present to test the ink Sheaffer Skrip Green color ... some people compare him to turquoise. But they are wrong. Color ink is verdigris or if you will - green-blue. Inks have good a writer as far as dries quickly. I have no comments. If someone that verdigris to the liking, let buy with confidence.

Manufacturer: Sheaffer

Series, colour: Skrip Green

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)


Flow rate: very good

Lubrication: good

Bleed through: possible point

Shading: noticeable

Feathering: unnoticeable

Saturation: good

A drop of ink smeared with a nib


The ink smudged with a cotton pad




Water Resistance


Ink drying time


Ink drops on a handkerchief




Sample text


Sample text in an Oxford notebook A5 (90 g / m2)


Sample letters in a Rhodia notebook No 16 (90 g / m2)





If you have interesting inks and you want to give a sample for testing - welcome.
We can exchange a color sample.

I find this color more of a turquoise with a hint of green.


Best regards.

Thanks for testing the Skrip colors.

It's one more shade of turquoise with more greenish tinge.. Rather than green...


Though I like this color...

Thank you for wonderful review...

Really like the review

I hv try this Skrip Green ~ the color is between Turquoise & Dark Green ~ At the beginning the ink is lighter color like Turquoise, but after few time refill with the same pen, the color will show more on dark green ~


Thanks for your review ~

Thanks for the review. Not a color for me, though I like some of the other [modern] Skrip inks I've tried.

Thanks for the review. I really wish it was a little more green though. If only they would have marketed it as either a teal or a cyan and then made a darker green. It does match the color of the letters on my boat though, which I think is pretty cool.

I like mango cheesecake

I recently bought this and was using it for quite some time in a 149. An inexpensive bottle and a great color.
