Another of my "help me choose" thingies. This one was for KWZ Pine Green. As with all KWZ inks, it's smooth to write with, but eventually I decided against it because Verdura covers much of the same color. Granted: KWZ shades to a deeper, blacker green where it pools, while Verdura stays lighter and offers what I've seen described as a "halo effect", like many Herbins do, Lierre Sauvage included. Sherwood Green, while distinctly different in hue, does a similar shading job to Pine Green and as an added bonus sheens a little red in the thicker deposits, but in writing it is hardly noticeable and then only on Tomoe River.

 

Keep in mind these comparisons are done with dip nibs: everything is darker than you would get with a properly loaded fountain pen, prolly something closer to what you see here on the lines where the nib starts to go dry.

Your comparison is very pleasing to the eye. For years I have struggled with greens, never settling on a shade of the colour.

Is KWZ Pine Green an iron-gall ink & thus would darken as it oxidizes.?

It is not an iron-gall, it is part of KWZ's standard line.

Darn,...but I'm an I-G fan. I should look up to see his line of I-G inks & see if there is a green I can live with.

He has 4 of them iirc, and they look VERY nice. If I wasn't already settled for dark green I'd totally check them out.

Thank you for your careful preparation of this comparison.

It's useful for me, as I have never written with any of these green inks.
