A sort of ripe lime green skin colour
I don’t have many greens: six, counting this Dutch Masters #10 van Huysum’s Sapgroen. Two are teal-ish; another is closer in colour to van Huysum’s Sapgroen, but still too blue even if very yellow. Huh? Kind of contradictory, I realize – think of a yellow shade phthalocyanine green PG36. This leaves me with Sailor Kobe #19 Minatogawa Lime and Tag Kyo-No-Oto #08 Moegi-iro. Sapgroen is right in the middle. A bit yellower than Kobe #19 and a bit toned down from Tag #08. It is a nicely saturated colour, offering some shading and some hard-to-describe very dark green shiny sheen at the edges where the ink pools in heavier application. The ink is readable in wet thin nibs and is easily usable on office paper when proofreading. The ink flows well without being wet. I can obtain nicely contained lines with my Sailor 1911L 21 kt H-B nib. I don’t tend to gravitate towards green ink, but I'm glad I bought a sample.
