After not having used it for a year or so, I decided to ink a pen with Graf von Faber Castell's Moss Green. A lush, dark green ink that fits the current spring weather well. I'm not a huge fan of green inks, but every now and then I like to write with them.
Despite any prejudices people might have against green ink, I believe this ink can be used for note taking in the office, or for any personal communication and notes.
The ink writes really well, the shading is high and beautiful. There is no feathering and despite the dark color, the show-through is negligible. Lubrication is good and wetness low to moderate. Despite that, the drying time is above average: 45 seconds.
The ink doesn't like water very much. It might remain readable for a rewrite, but even after two days, a minimal amount of water ruins the ink.
Compared to other dark green inks, this ink comes relatively close to KWZ's IG Green #3. Vert Empire is a much duller color. Emeraude de Chivor is slightly less dark, but, more importantly, leans a lot more towards blue.
The ink comes in a stylish and big (75ml) bottle. Too big for incidental use. But, if you like green inks, this one is definitely to be recommended!
