CONS
  • Mouth of the bottle is a little narrow so sometimes I have issues filling larger pens.
  • Sometimes feathery on paper that isn't very fountain pen friendly.
  • A little dry.
OVERALL

This is a vibrant green-blue ink! Beautiful color and I don't have many bottles of ink with this color, so it's sort of unique in my ink arsenal. It looks finicky here and it is a bit - feathering and bleeding through on paper that isn't very fountain pen friendly. For the most part, with finer nibs and regular writing, this isn't much of an issue.




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.
