Yeah. Green. Why?It's gorgeous and fun to scribble notes with

The P.P.
Deep dark green

The Verdura ink is a very rich and dark green. There is a very slight amount of shading with an EF nib, so you might see more with wider pens. It dries fairly quick, but it's heavy on the page. Slight bleed through on Leuchtturm paper. I like it. A lot.

Kay H.

kind of a boring green. No shading. Bit of feathering.

R&K Verdura

I love the Rohrer and Klingner inks, I have yet to have bad luck with it. I ordered the full bottle of Verdura to use for Christmas this year. Unfortunately I waited too long, and didn't get it in time for when I needed it. Ink Drop saved the day!! I was able to use the beautiful and perfect holiday green for my needs. It's one of the few true greens that I have been able to find, and I have a lot of green options in my embarrassing ginormiss ink collection.

Well behaved on many papers

I'm basing this off of a sample from the 8 color medium greens sampler sold here. This was the least expensive ink I'm considering getting a bottle of. Many greens seem too light to me or have severe feathering issues with lower quality paper. While not dark by any means, this is also not washed out looking either. On good paper it also shows nice shading. When used for mark-ups on cheap copy paper at work, it had no spreading or feathering like many greens. It also tends to have lower than average show-through. Overall, a very good ink for mark-ups or general writing.

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
