Ink Shot Review: @RobertOsterInk Ryde Green @MilligramStore

Did you know Notemaker has changed their name to Milligram Store? Same great stuff, new name! Milligram sent over six Robert Oster inks for me to review and share with you here, so let's start with one of my favorites - Ryde Green! I'm a sucker for a shading, vibrant green any day.

  • Easy to fill from bottle.
  • A fun, legible green, even in finer nibs.
  • Easy to clean.
  • A gorgeous, vibrant green with great shading.
  • Looks so good in a clear pen!
  • The label on top of the cap of the bottle has the name of the ink printed on it, as well as a tiny ink swab so it's easy to spot in your ink drawer/cabinet.
  • Easy to store bottles.
  • Robert Oster is a really nice guy, so I feel happy to support his creations.

    • Um... basically nothing.


    Ryde Green is a gorgeous, vibrant green. I think it's absolutely beautiful and shows great shading. This is my favorite kind of green - rich and real, nicely saturated, well-behaved. Just beautiful. I love it.

    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.
