Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Anderson Pens' Green Bay


This is the member of the Anderson's collection that I like the best. It's a gorgeous dark green that shades well, and behaves wonderfully.  It's Lisa Anderson's favorite ink in the collection, too, and I can totally see why. 

When this was Scribal Workshops' Levithan, I hated it. It was dry and scratchy. It made me feel like I was always writing on sandpaper. Not good. As Green Bay, it's been reformulated to be awesome

(If they added a little more of this "smooth" to the Fox River Blues ink, it would probably be my favorite ink ever.) 

Some of the other inks are temperamental about which pens they're in and they only flow in big-bore nibs. This one is has excellent flow and it looks awesome. It reminds me of Epinard (looking back at an email from Brian Anderson, he thinks so, too), and that's a very good thing. The Anderson inks are cheaper than the Sailor ones were, and Epinard is discontinued. Get some Green Bay. I will be doing that soon.



 Just green, with a dash of yellow and a touch of blue base.

Copy Paper Test!

 You can see a little ghosting here, but nothing bleeding through. This is a slightly wet ink in a fairly wet nib, and it doesn't misbehave at all. That's good stuff.

The Final Words:

I really like this green. It's fantastic, so if you're looking for a green, then check it out at Anderson Pens. Bottles are $12.50 for 60ml (2oz), and 3ml samples for $1.25.

If you're a long-time reader of the blog, you know that I always advise a sample of an ink before a whole bottle. This time, though, go for the bottle. You won't regret it.

Thanks very much to Brian and Lisa for sending this ink out for me to try!
