Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weird but cool I just wrote about five pages with this ink in a Noodler's Ahab. It worked extremely well. It was a little wet with some nib creep but I adjusted the nib once and the problem was solved. It is a very odd color. It reminds me of the olive green sometimes called avocado that was very popular in the late sixties early seventies for appliances and interior decorating. It has good shading, and dries quickly. I bought the color to draw with but am enjoying writing with it I wouldn't use it for business, but I would for personal notes, thank-yous, condolences etc. I like it. I've liked all the Rohrer and Klinger inks that I've tried so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight. My mom bought me a sample of this ink, knowing my favorite color is spring green, and I was so tickled to have found my perfect green ink without having to try another thing. I use an M nib, and this flows well and is not at all difficult to read, despite what you might expect from a golden green. This shades really beautifully, going from a deep moss to a light, new-leaf green. It's the perfect elvish green, and I really have trouble convincing myself to use anything else in my pen. As soon as I've filled it with something else, I'm constantly checking to see how much longer I have to wait before I can fill it back up with Alt-Goldgrun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty, but good for you * It may look like some nutritious vegetable that Mom's trying to get you to eat, but don't be afraid: Alt Goldgrun's one tasty ink. The color's interesting, but not flashy. Not very saturated, it might be mistaken for 60-70% gray in low illumination. But it's calming and distinctive in the full light of day. Dries fast with good shading, from an almost yellow-green at the light end, to dusky avocado at the dark. Seemed to write a bit dry in my EF Lamy Safari, perhaps more due to the pen than to the ink. [ * Please do not drink the R u. K Alt Goldgrun ink, even if does resemble a wheat grass and kale smoothie. ]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get A Sample Immediately! If you are on the fence or not a huge fan of green, at least get a sample of this. This is awesome gold-meets-avocado in color. The shading is fantastic on good paper and the color is nice on plain old copy paper. I currently have it loaded up in a TWSBI 580 with a 1.1 nib. It is wet, and very thin in its viscosity, but dries quickly and cleans up very well, so swapping it in and out of pens is easy. I carry a fountain pen all day and write on every kind of paper at work and find that it does not feather very much at all despite its thin character on cheap paper. One of my all time favorite green-greens is Noodler's Gruene Cactus, but Alt-Goldgrun is to green what Herbin Rouge Hematite is to red. This is something different and very attractive. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Golden Green Green is my favourite colour - but the only green ink I have is Diamine's Ultra Green. When I found this ink, I put my inner craving for rich, bright greens aside. Glad I did. . An aside.. the Rohrer & Klingner ink packaging is lovely. Simple, olde-world-ish, and mostly in German. Refreshing for a first-time user of their inks! So using this ink was a delight before I cracked open the top. The first stroke was a little shaky - but once the pen and ink got their groove on, it was magic. The colour is very golden - I'll probably use it for Celtic lettering and art work, as well as for writing. It IS subtle - again, it has a watercolour quality to it - but it is solid and dependable, flowing well through any of the Lamy pens I sampled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! SUMMARY: This ink is absolutely amazing. It is my very favorite green, and this is the only ink I've found that captures this specific color flawlessly. PROPERTIES: This ink is very wet, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, if you have a fine nib, it is actually a desirable quality, as it helps the ink to flow with consistency and not skip. The lubrication is nice, and I've found that it makes even the most basic steel nibs write with unbelievable smoothness. I have never seen an ink with a higher degree of shading than this one. It can be extremely light green, grass green, gold, brown, or dark green, offering a truly exquisite effect on paper. This is the nicest ink I've ever used, nicer even (in my opinion) than Iroshizuku, and much less expensive. If you like olive-greens, you will not be disappointed with this one. Also, the images above are fairly true to color, though there is small variation; the actual ink is a bit darker and more yellow-brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olive, but not drab I received a sample of Alt-Goldgrun as part of the May 2013 Ink Drop, which is great because I'd been interested in it for a while. I inked up a cheap Hero 616 I had lying around to test it out, and have been very pleased with the performance thus far. The color is exactly what comes to mind when I think of (US) Army green or Olive Drab. The name fits well; for a green, it has a lot of warmth due to the golden undertones. It has lovely shading even with the teeny-tiny fine nail nib on my Hero. Flows nicely. Dries in about 5 seconds. Well-behaved (no feathering) on Clairefontaine, Apica and even cheap Staples copier paper. An entire, fat droplet left to soak and dry on the cheap paper still had minimal show-through! Not much water resistance, but not bad either considering it is a fairly light color and, really, that's not a big concern for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite color ever I'm absolutely in love with this ink. I want to marry this ink and have its ink babies. Hands down my favorite green, in fact my favorite color period.
