Ink Shot Review: Franklin-Christoph Philadelphia Green @1901FC @CarnivalofPens

This sample was sent over by Franklin-Christoph, so I could taunt you a bit with the color before the Philadelphia Pen Show! It will be available only at the show, and they'll also be giving away many bottles throughout the show!

PROS
  • GORGEOUS. A beautiful, deep green with wonderful shading.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Did I mention gorgeous? Totally work-appropriate but pretty enough to be a special ink.
  • Perfect saturation to achieve so much depth and variety of color.
  • Flows well.

CONS
  • Not very water resistant.
  • A bit finicky - if in a wet writing pen, it'll bleed/show through, and ghost a little. Looks great in wide nibs that aren't too wet.

Gorgeous. What an absolutely beautiful ink. Even Graf Von Faber-Castell's new Deep Sea Green doesn't look quite like this (review of that coming on Tuesday). Get yourself to the show and get a bottle!! (Feel free to get me one, too.)

I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
