PROS
  • Stunning ink! A rich, vibrant emerald green base, with a beautiful sheen, and gold particles. 
  • Looks spectacular in wet and broad nibs. 
  • Works pretty well with dip nibs.

CONS
  • Hard to clean - those particles require some care.
  • Silly narrow mouth on bottle.
  • Requires the right combination of nib and paper to shine, but it's worth it. 
OVERALL

This is an ink that may not be suitable for all pens - I prefer to use inks with particles in pens I can take apart to clean thoroughly. I haven't had clogging issues, but I also am careful to clean the pens I use it in thoroughly. I think this is so gorgeous, that it's worth the added maintenance and care. Look at this stuff! The ink also shines in a wet nib, or a broad nib, and on coated paper.
