Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark But Dilutable For many people the combination of lightness and brightness in this soft green would be too bright for letter-writing... to me it's just fine for personal letters but no good for work. It shows a tremendous shift in saturation from first line to last (by the time I get to the bottom of a page, it's borderline highlighter!) but it is a beautiful color in every intensity. Perfectly mint: a tiny bit toward the blue side so it never shades to yellow, but definitely green, not teal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A happy 1950's mint-green Soft Mint looked so pretty on the screen that I ordered a sample. I never use greens, but this is special. The first thing I thought about was that happy 1950's kitchen color that was a cross between turquoise and green. Kind of like a pale green turquoise gemstone. Most unusually, the color I saw on my screen was pretty accurate when I started writing with this ink. I'm using it in a Sensa Meridian fine nib (which is still fairly wet) and have had no flow problems. I get bleed-through on el cheapo ruled office pads, but hey: who doesn't? It worked a lot better on Moleskine and on high-quality journal paper. A previous commenter is right about the shading: it really lightens as you go along, but it's still readable and beautiful. I plan to give it a run in my Shaeffer Nostalgia, which is a wet, medium-nib pen, and a Pilot Penmanship with an extra-fine nib.( Japanese, so we're talking hair-fine, here.) Definitely ordering a bottle of this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a keeper ! I wanted to try this as a highlighter to use to make notes and underline in texts, etc. and it works perfectly for that. It flows smoothly, dries quickly and has almost zero ghosting on any type of paper. It is just a shade too pale too use as an everyday ink or I would have given it 5 stars. Great color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color! This ink reminds me of Iroshizuku Syo-ro. It is a tad lighter when it dries, and doesn't have the reddish sheen that Syo-ro has. Excellent behavior, good shading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Shade My purchase happened because I HAD to have an ink to match as closely as possible the cool Retro Pop Metropolitan pen in turquoise that I was also ordering from Goulet! http://www.gouletpens.com/pilot-metropolitan-fountain-pen-retro-pop-turquoise-fine/p/PN91436 They are a brilliant match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Ink I love this colour so much. I got it as an extra in an order and fell in love immediately. It's understated but strong. I would feel fairly comfortable using it at work. It also goes really well with Diamine's Moon Dust. It flows well in my EF preppy and
