    Default Montblanc Racing Green Replacement ?

    Hi, it's been over a decade that MB RG was discontinued. Did we ever find a replacement for it?

    That Diamine is close, but lacks the grey element in the original.

    See: https://fpgeeks.com/forum/showthread...cing-Green-ink

    Which leads to:





    Barry Gabay was able to reveal the real stuff by directing me to smear each, and the genuine ink resisted smearing much sooner than did the faux mixes.

    My original bottle of Mb RG leans towards yellow a tiny bit more than the faux and I think the sample in the middle of the image does too. Particularly when you look carefully at the hatched areas. I had a bit of Junglejim's mix and added a drop or two more yellow to it to make it almost a 100% match.

    Does the phrase "majoring on minors" Stoke a cord people! In the midst of a global pandemic some of us are worrying about a tiny, barely visible difference in green inks! LOL

    Well... to be fair, in this forum we all worry about little plastic and metal sticks that we use for (gasp!) writing...

    We will even write something, take a picture of it, upload it to a server half across the world, spend several thousands of times more bytes to send the same message across the world, just to have an excuse to use said outdated plastic stick.

    I just spent 62 on a ink bottle - I don't even want the ink, I just want the bottle. I try not to indulge myself too much when so many don't even have enough food and I am conscious of the fact.

    We also say things like "I've never quite understood why people liked writing with an ink that is the color of vegetarian poop."
    "When Men differ in Opinion, both Sides ought equally to have the Advantage of being heard by the Publick;
    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."
