Here's one of the greens from the Toucan collection that Anderson Pens sent out to me. There are some inks in this collection that I'm not in love with, but this is a really good one. It's a bright, fresh green, and it works well on most papers. You'll see below that there are are bleeds on my test paper, but I was doing a bunch of grading with this one yesterday and didn't notice any problems. I've also taken a bunch of course notes in this ink, and there weren't any problems there. Either way, this is a fun color.
It's not going to fit in at the office (well, at some offices), but if you're writing notes or grading, or doing something that doesn't have to be all that formal, then you should check it out.
Oh! I forgot to write about the flow (probably because I was writing really quickly and hadn't had any coffee), but it's good. It's really smooth and there weren't any hard starts to be had. Exemplary.
Okay, there are the usual pictures below, but I've also been playing with some video modes, and I've put together some time-lapse of various things. Check those out.
Now, I say in the video that I don't have anything like this, but Diamine Meadow is pretty close. It's a little darker, maybe, but it's the right neighborhood, anyway. I can add that Toucan's Bright Green doesn't have any of the "funk" that I saw with Meadow back in the day.
Let me know what you think of this little time-lapse video. I might start doing more of them, but only if people like 'em.

This ink is a good value, and it has really good features. It's a cool color, and it flows well. You can (only) find bags and samples over at Anderson Pens. A 60ml bag goes for $10.

The ink for this review was provided free of charge by Anderson Pens. The review was all mine, however.
