We are getting close to the end of Inkmas! Today is frigidly cold here (a high of -6 degrees F) so I’ve chosen a bright and cheerful ink that makes me warm inside.
Scribo Vert Prato is a bright yellowish green ink that makes me smile.
Scribo inks come in huge, heavy glass bottles that could break a toe but also stack nicely on top of one another, making a beautiful and eye-catching centerpiece. The bottles are hand blown glass and contain a full 90mL of ink. I love how they look in the sunlight.
Bright green ink isn’t terribly common in the ink world. One popular bright green is Akkerman #28 Hofkwartier Groen. Pen Chalet also has a store-exclusive Robert Oster ink, Paulo Verde, that is close to Vert Prato, but more of an olive tone.
As you can see below, Vert Prato is very close to Hofkwartier Groen, but a bit less of a yellow undertone. To me, Vert Prato wins because it just looks a bit more cheerful.
This is an ink that has been in a pen since I discovered it – a matching pen that also glows in the dark (the pen, not the ink). I’ve had this Benu filled with Vert Prato for about a year now – I might not ever change this duo.
Which bright green ink do you prefer? Why aren’t there more bright green inks around?
