Diamine Old English Emerald ink tested in a Paperblanks lined journal with off white pages. .7 Binderized cursive italic Pelikan M200.
I remember sampling this ink a while back from Pear Tree Pens. Green is a tricky color for me because there are about 100 shades of green that I wouldn't want to write with but fortunately, this is one that I do like. It's not too bright, nor too yellow. It's not a childish (crayon used for coloring grass) green. To me, it's a respectable green.
Very nice flow, fairly well saturated and in this wide nib, shows shading.
My favorite green ink to date.
Buy Diamine Inks in the UK at The Writing Desk or directly from Diamine and in the US from The Pear Tree Pen Company Ink is sold in 80ml glass bottles, 30 ml plastic bottles, and selected colors are available in cartridge form.
