another underrated Lamy ink

I have returned recently to Lamy ink after trying many other brands. Their ink and this green is as womderful as I remember and can hold its own with any other brand.

Great green!

Of all the greens I've tried, this one suits me best -- not too dark, not too light, not too yellow, not too blue. And for the price, in the grooviest bottle ever with a well for the nib to submerge as supply gets low, and integral blotter paper on a reel in the base, I'm a big fan and will be considering the blue next.

Roberto A.

Very nice bright green! Nice flow and well behaved. I would highly recommend it.

Strong Color

It is good for daily tasks and for mixing it with other inks or paints. I use the pen to draw and then later use water colors to fill. This color is great for a natural green. Work very well with other colors.

A very good ink

This ink got a raw and harsh review on FPN, but not deservedly so as it has many fine qualities. It is not washed out by any means. I have found this ink to be slightly saturated, lubricating and will shade even with a fine nib. A wetter nib is kinder to this ink leaving a nice dark, muted green line. In drier nibs it shows some of its blue roots but does not distract from the overall green.Extremely pleasing and easy to write with. The flow wil keep up with fast writing and thin enough with a fine nib to be very precise if used for mathematics.

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.
