Ink Review: Waterman Harmonious Green

Review by Laura Cameron

Every so often I pick up a bottle of a classic ink and decide to review it here. I have a few vintage pens, so I’m always looking for good colors of tried and true inks. This time it’s Waterman Harmonious Green and, as always, I’m impressed with it!

Waterman Harmonious Green is a beautiful blue green. In many lights it appears very green, but then I compare it to truer greens and it appears more like a blue fir color.

When I flip through my Col-o-dex, the closest color I find is my Robert Oster Spearmint. Monteverde California Teal is close, but just a shade too blue. And Rohrer & Klingner Smaragdgrun is too light, though similarly toned.

Harmonius Green shades beautifully and do you see what I see? Down there on the ink splotches? That’s red-purple sheen!

Yes that’s right. These  tried and true inks do sheen! I’m excited to spend some time writing with this beautiful ink!

  1. It’s easy to get sniffy about old-brand inks like Waterman and just forget they are there, however, they always deliver. I have NEVER had a flow issue with a Waterman ink. Absolute Brown (formerly Havana) is one of my standard go-to inks.
