Review: Robert Oster Green Diamond

My thanks to Glenn for the ink sample.

Robert Oster Green Diamond is a solid green, bright and strong. It does shade. It shades best with the 1.1mm stub nib. Robert Oster Green Diamond reminds me of Montblanc Irish Green. The green just pops right off the page. Though it isn’t my kind of green ink but green ink lovers do check it out.

Review: KWZ IG Green #1

My thanks to Straits Pen for the ink sample. I’m super behind on reviewing and using my ink sample stash. Ok, I’ll stop whining.

KWZ IG Green #1 has the characteristic scent which I actually like. IG Green #1 is part of KWZ’s Iron Gall series. It’s a dark teal colour that shades beautifully. It goes from deep dark green almost black to a rich teal, more green than blue. I love this colour a lot. This is a rather wet ink but the dry time is rather good. If you enjoy green or teal inks and need some water resistant properties, check out this ink.

Review: Scribes’ Inks Francisan (Merlot)

My thanks to Straits Pen for the ink sample. I’ve got this sample a while back and I just got quite a lot of ink samples to run through. I’ll get through all of them. On to the ink, Francisan is a wine red ink that’s scented to smell like Merlot. I’m not a wine drinker so I’ve no idea how accurate the scent is. Francisan shades nicely keeping within the red end of the purple-red spectrum. It’s dry time is longer than usual for me.
