Pen of the Day: Pelikan M600 Green o’Green and KWZ Iron Gall Green #4

Pelikan M600 Green o' Green with KWZ Iron Gall Green #4

Pelikan M600 Green o’Green with extra-fine nib. Loyal blog readers probably feel like they own this pen themselves, so often does it appear in these pages. It’s a favorite of mine, a limited edition from a few years ago.

I love a Pelikan gold nib. This is a Pelikan extra-fine, which usually means “not really fine,” except this ink really does help tighten the line.

The ink is KWZ Iron Gall Green #4. Here’s a closer look.

KWZ Iron Gall Green #4 writing sample

I’ll be doing a review, but you’ll note that the color of Iron Gall Green #4 looks a little darker in the first two photos. Sometimes it does: it depends on the pen and the ambient light. The third photo is what Iron Gall Green #4 usually looks like.

If you’d like to compare some other KWZ green inks, I’ve, ahem, used a few. Two dye-based inks, KWZ Rotten Green , and KWZ Foggy Green. Also two iron gall inks: KWZ Iron Gall Green Gold here and here, and KWZ Iron Gall Green #1, here.

    1. I’ll tell you, the two KWZ greens that are really close to each other are Rotten Green and Foggy Green — the two dye-based (regular) inks. I’m getting one of them, but I forget which. I think Foggy. But was it Rotten? 🙂
