Ink Review: Kaweco Palm Green

Kaweco Palm Green ink

Kaweco Palm Green is a vivid, “true green” ink. What is really unique about this green is that it has a reddish halo around the edges of the letters as the ink dries. This effect might not appeal to everyone but I think it gives this color a lot of dimension and interesting shading. The shading is more noticeable on the swab (that’s not a camera halo!) pictured below.

Kaweco Palm Green ink comparison

When compared with some of the other green inks in my stash, it definitely fills a gap. Palm Green is darker green than the Private Reserve Spearmint and more true green than the Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine. While the Diamine Ultra Green and PR Spearmint seem similar to the Kaweco Palm Green, they do not have the wonderful red halo.

I’m quite pleased with the color of the Kaweco Palm Green and look forward to using it regularly.

  1. Nice review. Shading is a quality I really enjoy and appreciate, especially when there is a subtle sheen. I understand you emphasizing the fact that it is a “true,” green, but I am not sure of the value in saying it is a TRUER green than PE “aventurine?” In retrospect, so many colors are a riff of a purposeful interpretation of a certain color, ya know? I know this is obvious, I just think we forget that. I mean, would you rather have GREY or fuyu-syogun? 😉

    1. I guess I should have clarified that PE Aventurine has a slight bluish cast next to the Palm Green. Its still a fairly acceptable green but comparatively speaking, Palm Green is greenier than Aventurine, IMHO.
