    Default Lunchtime ink review: Robert Oster Moss

    Lunchtime ink reviews! I'm taking inks to work and doing one of these during my lunch.

    Robert Oster Moss, dip test with TWSBI Eco 1.1mm stub, on Rhodia dotpad.

    I liked this one - it is on the verge of becoming a green-grey, but just stays on the green side.

    Lovely review -as always- and an interesting ink. I have to compare it to my current greens (esp. Olivastre and Salamander).

    I like this ink almost as much as I like your reviews in general (i.e. quite a bit). I'll have to look for it at the SF show.

    This is a great ink and one of my favorite greens. It's well behaved and has some neat depth.

    If you can't find it, let me know. I have a near full bottle that you can have for free.

    Very nice! That is one of the nicest looking green inks I've seen so far.

    I really liked the layering of shades you could get out of it too - with inks that are all-saturated all the time, there are no light tones available so it makes it harder to do different types of strokes and make things go into the background. You have to rely entirely on size/width then.

    Thank you. If it is there it will be part of the usual effort to support vendors I love, but we shall see what they bring along!

    Thank you for the review. That's a really nice colour but I'm trying to not buy more inks. I recently tried out Montblanc Rudyard Kipling Khaki expecting it to be this type of colour but it's more of a blue green than I like.

    No problem. Enjoy the show. I am totally gutted I can't go, but maybe one day.
