Fountain Pen Ink
Pen: Pilot Vanishing Point, Matte Black, Binderized Medium Nib
Ink: Private Reserve Sherwood Green
Paper: Rhodia dotPad, No. 16, top spiral bound
Notes: This is the second sample I’ve ordered and gone through completely of Private Reserve’s Sherwood Green. It’s a vibrant medium green with amazing shading properties. The bulk of the line does down dark, but the shading is practically neon green. The ink is smooth, and a pleasure to write with. Only thing worth noting is that it can be a bit slow to dry, but taking the extra care is definitely worth it. The shading wasn’t as intense in the Vanishing Point Medium as it was in a Lamy Medium Nib, so your results may vary. Even though it’s close to Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine, they’re two different animals. For the price difference, I would have to recommend the Private Reserve over the Edelstein because I can’t see having both in your collection as 100% necessary. However, I think I may eventually end up with a bottle of this ink in the near future.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the review!

Try a Lamy stub with this ink. I used it for all my holiday writing this past December and I just love it.
Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll have to check it out.
