anderson had this for a very good price and i had to have it. it is a nice saturated green, but is not what you would call an everyday ink. however, mix 2 parts lamy green and one part lamy black and it is magic. a dark pine needle green with the best of both worlds. now here is an everyday use ink that is different and stunning for anything you would use black ink for. but the green overtones are unmistakeable and amazing on most paper.
