On Robert Oster's shop website Green Olive is described as follows: "This unique shade is so lifelike. Like a Green Olive bathing in a Martini. Flows on light Green, dries on bright Olive." Well I prefer greener olives and I dislike the color. The ink has decent flow and rather good saturation. It's not water resistant.

Thanks for the review. This one's not for me.

I love this colour. It looks really like olives.

It reminds me of Kyonooto Yamabukiiro.

 

+1... Me too... LOVE these kind of hues!!! :wub: :wub:

 

 

I might have not called it "Green Olive"... Maybe Rustic Gold.. :lol: :lol:

 

 

I do love your reviews VIS !!!... ;)

My first thought was that this is a Cyber6 color. I'm surprised to learn that it is not a Vis color - I will get better with my color identifications. Thank you, Vis and Thank you Cyber6 for enabling.

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

Good to know.

The first few times I tried this ink I found it pale and unsatisfactory although having the somewhat yellow hue I expected. I was nearing the point of giving it away, possibly to a drain, when I tried putting it into one of my wettest pens, the Onoto 21 with No.15 nib. The result was very satisfying. Now, the colour looked more as it says on the label, a clear green-olive, firm on the page and useable rather than irritatingly pale and wan. It was similar if not so drastic with Yellow Sunset, needing a fairly wet line to bring out its colour, and I wonder whether that Claret might also be improved. I have tried it once in a fairly fine Waterman No.2 nib.

 

Regarding one's pens, I can see why people recommend trying a known, classical, well-behaved ink first. I started with a poor opinion of a couple of my purchases before I fed them inks better suited to them; part of my continuing learning.

Thanks for the review. *Definitely* not a color for me. Also, it's really hard to read....

Is this one more yellow than Khaki?

 

 

If you mean Robert Oster Khaki... check the last two inks in the comparison sheet Vis posted above. Like night and day. ;)

Oops, thanks, I didn't notice there's a comparison.

 

I think I'm getting both. ;)

 

 

Wise choice.. :thumbup:

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
